According to the Wrestling Observer, the participants in this match will be different as this was just something WWE put together to begin selling tickets for this event:
“Yeah, so the six names that were announced that was just a line-up — this is going to sound so ridiculous, but you know what I mean — it was a line-up sent to sell tickets, but they hadn’t decided.
They’re going to have an Elimination Chamber. The winner which is likely going to be Roman Reigns is gonna face Bray Wyatt for the championship at WrestleMania, but who the six names are [in the Chamber match] they just threw six names there.
It’s like it might be those six and it might be other guys, Roman Reigns is obviously going to be in there. It very well might not be Robert Roode [in the match] it was just like ‘send them six guys,’ but who the six people are they just threw six names there.”
