Original Plans For Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens on RAW, Elimination Chamber Returning in 2017
- Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the original plan for this past Monday's RAW was for the match between Reigns and Owens to be for Reigns' U.S. title. Originally the live event matches were supposed to be title vs. title, however Stephanie McMahon ruled that only Reigns' U.S. title would be on the line.
As seen on RAW, the match was changed to a non-title match with the stipulation that Reigns would face Owens at WWE Roadblock for the belt if he were victorious, which he was.
