Backstage Notes on Sami Zayn Vs Roman Reigns – WWE surprised many when they announced that Austin Theory will defend his WWE United States Title inside the Elimination Chamber.
While this match is not as strong as a Chamber Match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title, or just the WWE Title, or even a WrestleMania 39 title shot, a new report from F4Wonline notes how the feeling was that Sami Zayn vs. Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title is so hot it doesn’t matter what is on the rest of the Elimination Chamber card.
This comes as no surprise, but as of last week, the plan was for Reigns to retain over Zayn in their title match at Elimination Chamber. Reigns will then go to WrestleMania 39 to defend against Cody Rhodes in one of the main events.
WWE is expected to confirm Zayn vs. Reigns on this week’s SmackDown.
Below is the current card for the 2023 WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event, which will air live on Saturday, February 18 from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada:
