Universal champion Roman Reigns had a plan for Elimination Chamber – put all his potential challengers in an Elimination Chamber match, then take out the winner seconds after they emerge from the grueling structure.
It almost backfired when a wounded Daniel Bryan side-stepped a spear and slapped on the YES Lock.
But the Tribal Chief powered out, mauled Bryan with strikes and choked him out. The referee had no choice but to call for the bell, and Reigns is headed to WrestleMania 37.
And we don’t have to wonder about who he’s going to face at the Showcase of the Immortals any longer either (not that we ever did). While Roman was celebrating, Edge speared him in half.
With a point to the ‘Mania sign, we have a main event for either April 10 or 11.
Reigns wanted to be acknowledged, and now he has been. Be careful what you wish for.
