Update: WWE is now officially listing The Rock on the Elimination Chamber PPV roster page. Events unfolding between now and the Chamber will determine whether Rock wrestles on the February PPV or appears in a non-wrestling role leading to WrestleMania 29.

Original Story Tuesday

The Rock is being advertised locally in New Orleans for WWE's Elimination Chamber PPV in February, reports Prowrestling.net.

Rock is currently official for the Royal Rumble in January and WrestleMania 29 in April. It was up in the air whether he would be involved in the Chamber PPV bridging WWE's two most-lucrative PPVs of the year (a) because of his movie schedule and (b) risk of PPV over-exposure prior to WM29.

The New Orleans Arena wants to heavily promote Rock in the local market due to tickets going on-sale this Saturday. The arena website currently does not mention Rock being part of the PPV, though. Current arena advertising reads:

"The Road to WRESTLEMANIA 29 passes through NEW ORLEANS when THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER emanates from NEW ORLEANS ARENA on FEBRUARY 17th FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!

In the final Pay Per View before WRESTLEMANIA 29, Witness the TOP SUPERSTARS FROM RAW & SMACKDOWN compete inside THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER! THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER is the most DIABOLICAL STRUCTURE in Sports Entertainment.

2 SUPERSTARS will start out while 4 SUPERSTARS are encased in their pod. At each designated time, 1 SUPERSTAR will enter the match until all competitors are released. The only way to be eliminated is via submission or pinfall. The last man standing will have his hand raised as the winner!

6 SUPERSTARS will enter but no one will ever be the same! Careers & Legacies will be at stake!"
