The WWE Universe is excited for the Elimination Chamber, as it is the last stop on the road to WrestleMania. Roman Reigns would defend his WWE Undisputed Universal Championship against Sami Zayn in his hometown of Montreal. However, Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes drew similarities between the magnitudes of Sami Zayn in Montreal and CM Punk in Chicago.
During an interview with MMA Fighting, Cody Rhodes spoke about how electrifying the connection is between the crowd in Montreal and Sami Zayn. He said that he cannot compare this dynamic connection to anything else except Punk in Chicago. Moreover, Rhodes also stated that he couldn’t rule out the possibility of facing Sami at WrestleMania 39. “I can’t compare anything to Montreal other than Punk in Chicago. As composed as Roman is, this is a very unique scenario. The idea that it could be Sami Zayn is not remotely off the table for me at all,” he said.
The American Nightmare said that Roman is on a whole different level. And Sami Zayn is looking relentless since he will face Roman in his own hometown in Montreal, backed up by the WWE Universe. As a result, Rhodes believes that it would be compelling to see the match between the two of them. He also mentioned that his late father, “The American Dream,” Dusty Rhodes, would lose it if he knew that his son would wrestle Roman Reigns at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Cody Rhodes won the Royal Rumble and vowed to dethrone Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. However, there’s a possibility that he might face Sami Zayn. Cody was seen boosting Zayn’s confidence on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw. Moreover, he said that he would love to face the Canadian superstar at the Showcase of the Immortals.
The outcome of the match between Sami and Roman at the Elimination Chamber would decide the fate of the American Nightmare. Therefore, the fans are thrilled for the premium live event taking place in Montreal. It would clear the direction of the road to WrestleMania.
Does Sami Zayn pose a threat to Roman Reigns?
Ever since leaving The Bloodline, Sami Zayn has looked unfathomable. The WWE Universe showed vigorous support for the former Intercontinental Champion. Furthermore, fans have seen Zayn cause cracks in The Bloodline. As a result, there’s a rift between Jey Uso and The Tribal Chief. Moreover, Sami would face the champion in his hometown, backed up by thousands of fans.
Therefore, it looks like he is a legitimate threat to The Head of the Table. Considering the red-hot form he is in, it won’t be surprising if he shocks the world by dethroning Roman Reigns at the Elimination Chamber. It would probably give rise to one of the greatest moments in WWE.
