After seeing the sensational final of the Royal Rumble, with Sami Zayn who finally turned his back on the whole Bloodline, hitting Roman Reigns' back with a chair, after his titled match against Kevin Owens, the official announcement of the new challenge arrives titled for the Tribal Chief of the company.
During the Friday Night Smackdown episode aired tonight, Sami Zayn went to challenge Roman Reigns in a titled match for Elimination Chamber, with the undisputed WWE champion who obviously wanted to respond to this request in his own way, at the end of the show.
In the main event of Smackdown, in fact, Sami Zayn jumped on Reigns to attack him with a chair once again, but the rest of the Bloodline stopped the Canadian, knocking him out. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa in fact thwarted Zayn's attack, with Reigns however stopping Solo from attacking the Canadian with his Hip Attack.
In the end, Roman accepted the challenge thrown at him by Sami Zayn for Elimination Chamber, effectively formalizing the title match for the WWE Undisputed Championship at the company's next ppv, which will be broadcast in Montreal.
Roman Reigns needs to be careful
Roman Reigns and The Bloodline utterly destroyed Sami Zayn at the end of last Saturday's Royal Rumble premium live event. Brock Lesnar is recognized as one of WWE's most devastating athletes of the last 30 years, with the federation's Beast winning multiple world titles, especially since his 2012 return.
After seeing him involved in one of the most interesting segments of last Saturday's Royal Rumble, there were no other on-screen plans for Lesnar during the week, nor has WWE officially confirmed his presence in the future.
According to what was reported in the latest update by Dave Meltzer, to the microphones of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it seems that WWE has internally confirmed the presence of Lesnar also for Elimination Chamber, as well as for Wrestlemania.
In his speech, Meltzer in fact stated: “Lesnar has been confirmed to work in both Montreal and Wrestlemania. For Mania, there should be a new match with Lashley. We have been told that rumors of a possible match with Gunther are false and also with Steve Austin, who they have contacted for Lesnar, he has declined any offers to do any wrestling events at the moment." Rikishi claimed it was the other way around and that he was left speechless following his family's heinous actions: "Well, I don't think it's what Sami [Zayn] has done to The Bloodline.
First of all, before we came on to the air, I was speechless to see what had unfolded in front of me and the world," said Rikishi.
