No Way Out was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event, produced by WWE. The event was created in 1998 as an In Your House event in February of that year and in 2000 was made an annual pay-per-view event for WWE. After the brand extension, the event was made exclusive to the SmackDown brand in 2004, being produced every February. In April 2007, following WrestleMania 23, brand-exclusive pay-per-view events ceased being held, with the last of which being the SmackDown-exclusive No Way Out 2007. After the event included two Elimination Chamber matches in 2008, No Way Out was replaced by WWE Elimination Chamber the following year. The name was revived for the June 2012 pay-per-view event.
