Sami Zayn Believes It Would Be Very Hard To Leave Elimination Chamber A Loser

Sami Zayn feels like he’s already won before he steps into the ring with Roman Reigns tomorrow night at WWE Elimination Chamber.

Ahead of WWE Elimination Chamber, SmackDown Superstar Sami Zayn sat down with Joe Pearl of Fightful to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about his match with Roman Reigns in Montreal on Saturday night, Zayn said he believes it would be very hard for him to walk out of this match as a loser.

“It would be very hard to walk out of this match a loser, no matter what the result of the match is,” Sami Zayn said. “If I win, forget about it. That place goes crazy and I’m launched into the next stratosphere. You’re beating ‘the guy.’ Even if that’s not the outcome, if it’s some sort of draw, God knows what happens, even if I lose, whatever it is, I think the magnitude of the moment is going to be so huge and it’s infectious.

“Anytime I’ve done anything in Montreal, the love that I’ve gotten in Montreal, it’s contagious. When fans at home see that kind of response, it triggers something in them too. The fact that this is in Montreal, ignoring the obvious history of me coming up here and not just being a guy from Montreal, but being a product of this town, growing up in this town, doing the small tiny shows in this town that got me to the next step.

“Each step of the way, the fact is, this town made me. I’m just from here. This town made me. The fact that we find ourselves in this position, it’s an easy story to tell. Beyond all that, whatever comes of this match is going to be huge for me one way or another.”

When asked about Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes essentially looming over his title match with Roman Reigns this weekend, Zayn called it an interesting time. The former Honorary Uce believes all of the factors are making the fans even more excited to see what happens next.

“It’s an interesting time we find ourselves in,” Sami Zayn said. “When I saw him [Cody] at the Royal Rumble, the first thing he said to me was, ‘this is awkward, huh?’ It’s a strange time. There are two guys that easily could have gone either way as far as WrestleMania, Roman Reigns, all signs are pointing here…then again, this guy’s story is also pointing there. He’s already punched his ticket to WrestleMania. It’s either me and him, which I think is getting fans excited, or [Elimination Chamber] is my WrestleMania.

“The amazing thing is, WrestleMania is also my WrestleMania because of the position I find myself in. If I could rewrite the whole thing, I don’t know if I would change anything. The fact that I’m having this match in Montreal, in a weird way, that’s almost bigger than if I would have had this match with Roman at WrestleMania. I don’t know if it gets bigger than this.” [H/T: Fightful]
