St Petersburg, Florida – Tropicana Field
Edge welcomes us and says he had a lot of choices to make. He talks about WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defending his title inside the Elimination Chamber, and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns defending his title at Elimination Chamber. Edge says there are 13 potential opponent and he has to pick someone for WrestleMania 37. This is the biggest decision of his career.
The music interrupts and out comes WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman and Jey Uso. Cole hypes the Chamber match to determine Reigns’ opponent on Sunday, and then Reigns’ title defense later in the night.
Reigns and Edge stare each other down as Reigns slowly walks down and stops at ringside. Fans chant “you suck!” as they enter the ring. Reigns says Edge does not have 13 to choose from because there’s only 1 and that 1 is about to be a six-time WrestleMania main eventer. Edge can pick a main eventer, or he can pick the main eventer. Edge talks about how he saw Reigns lose his cool last week, which is rare. Edge realized Reigns needs him to be in the WrestleMania 37 main event. If Edge faces AJ Styles or anyone else, then that’s your main event. Edge sees Reigns’ insecurity.
Edge gives Reigns some praise but says he’s cracking under pressure, and Edge hasn’t even focused on him yet. Edge asks if Reigns really wants him to test his armor and focus on him. Think about that long and hard, is that what you want? The music interrupts and out comes Sami Zayn with his documentary film crew. Sami starts ranting about WWE disrespecting him every week but to be disrespected by two of the biggest stars, that’s something else. Edge is acting like Sami can’t make it to WrestleMania, and Reigns is so worried about Edge he’s not seeing the other threats in front of him. Sami is in the ring now, ranting to both Edge and Reigns. Sami wants his moment right now.
Sami calls for his camera men to get this iconic shot of him pointing at the WrestleMania 37 sign. He says make no mistake about it, he is going to WrestleMa… Uso superkicks Sami’s head off and he goes down. Reigns hands Heyman his title and he steps to Edge as fans boo him. Reigns whispers something in Edge’s ear. Reigns then backs off and nods, showing Edge he’s stepping to him and away from him in peace. We have no idea what Reigns said to Edge. Reigns, Heyman and Uso exit the ring now as Reigns’ music hits.
