Roman Reigns will defend the WWE Universal Championship at Elimination Chamber on February 18 against Sami Zayn after Reigns told Zayn he’d see him in Montreal at the end of WWE Smackdown.
At the end of Smackdown Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman came to the ring and cut a promo saying that he’d rather be talking about Cody Rhodes, but instead they have to talk about Sami Zayn. Reigns then said that Zayn used him and the bloodline. Zayn then came in through the crowd under a hood and hit Roman with a spear.
Reigns fled the ring as Zayn issued the challenge for Elimination Chamber. Sami grabbed the mic and said “you’re wrong about me. I never wanted anything from you until now”. Sami said he was coming after him and the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship.
Sikoa and Uso then also came in through the crowd and jumped Zayn. Reigns returned to the ring and accepted Zayn’s challenge, blaming him for the dissension in the Bloodline. Roman told Sami that he doesn’t have Jey because Sami broke up his Bloodline, his family. Roman said he wanted Sami at Elimination Chamber in Montreal in front of his family and friends.
