The road to WrestleMania continues with the “Tribe Boss” reigning supreme.
Sami Zayn has pushed Roman Reigns’ winning streak to a close.
But when the final gong rang at the WWE Elimination Chamber 2023 at the Bell Center in Montreal, Canada on Saturday night, the “Tribe Boss” continued to be recognized as champion.
Reigns now advances to WrestleMania in April, where he will face Royal Rumble 2023 winner Cody Rhodes.
After several close matches that could have gone either way, things took a dramatic turn when Reigns backed into Zayn and crushed the referee in the corner.
Zane hit Reigns with his Helluva kick and would have gotten the pinfall victory if the formula had existed. That absence provided Jimmy Uso Zayn with an opening to intercept a superkick and his Uso splash.
Despite the onslaught, Zayn managed to kick him out to the delight of his Montreal crowd.
Moments later, after the second referee was knocked out, Jay Uso emerged and stood between Reigns and Zayn with the steel chair in hand.
Reigns, wanting to test Jay’s loyalty to the clan, hands him a chair. However, Reigns gets fed up with Jay’s hesitation and punches him in the face.
This moment created an opening for a recovering Zane enough to attempt a spear on Reigns, but the champion quickly moved away from the road and the move dropped Jay instead.
Reigns then punishes Zane with some chair shots and crumples him with a spear to retain his crown.
Kevin Owens saves Zayn from post-match punishment that destroys both Reigns and Jimmy Uso in the process.
KO then left Reigns dazed in the corner of the ring for Zayn to finish off with a Hellva Kick.
Thus ended WWE Elimination Chamber 2023: Reigns vs. Zayn.
