2-Pronged Attack on The Bloodline
Paul Heyman is already in the ring with both of Roman Reigns’ titles on his shoulders. He says he does not make predictions since Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker, but only give out spoilers. There is a two-pronged attack going on The Bloodline. He brings up Sami Zayn challenging Roman for the title at Elimination Chamber. The crowd starts to chant Sami’s name. Heyman says Sami Zayn is not here this evening. He asks the fans to imagine Sami Zayn as Universal Champion. Heyman says it is not going to happen.
The second attack is ongoing by the winner of Royal Rumble match, Cody Rhodes. He calls Cody stupid for thinking that it is personal. Heyman continues to rant on Cody for a while.

Sami appears behind him and removes his hoodie. Heyman finally turns back and sees Sami. Sami takes the mic from him. Sami tells Heyman that he is not gonna hurt him, but he could have done it by now if he wanted to. Sami says he could have dropped Heyman dead. Sami says if this was a month ago, Solo would have already been out here to hit him with Samoan Spike and the Usos would be upon him.
But all that is not happening because everyone, including The Bloodline, knows Roman’s days are numbered. Sami asks Heyman what he thinks Jey Uso would do next and whether Jimmy would side with his twin brother Jey or a hatemonger in Roman. Sami says only 8 days are left for Roman as the Universal Champion. Sami hugs Heyman and tells him to relay a message to Roman. Sami says Roman does not need to worry about Cody because he will be the one to take the title from him.
