Seven matches were scheduled on the card. In the main event Booker T defeated Bray Wyatt in a 15 Minute Ironman Match to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Also at the event The Miz won an Elimination Chamber match for the right to challenge the World Heavyweight Champion in the future.
The card included matches resulting from scripted storylines whose results were played out by the War Hawks on the Raw brand. Storylines were produced on the War Hawks' weekly show Monday Night Raw. Wrestlers portrayed heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters while they built tension that led to a match or series of matches.
