Roman says of all the times of year for this to happen. Roman tells Jimmy and Solo the Wiseman had catering send a meal to the bus so go eat and I am going to the ring.

Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman came to the ring. Roman asked to be acknowledged and a Sami chant started. Roman says I was going to ask who you wanted me to talk about but I guess it’s pretty obvious. He was going to talk about Cody Rhodes who deserves his attention.

He said he had to go clear back to War Games and he saw greed. He said Sami used him because everyone wants something from him. Just then someone in a hoodie attacks Roman and its Sami Zayn. As Heyman hands Roman a chair Sami gets to his feet and hits Roman with a spear.

Sami then picks up the chair but before he could hit Roman, Roman runs out of the ring. Sami says you are wrong about him, he never wanted anything from him until now. Sami says he is coming after the WWE Unified Universal Championship. Just then Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso attack Sami. Jimmy puts a chair over Sami’s head and before Solo could run into him Roman stops him. Roman says he broke up his family and he said he will give him what he wants but he is going to break him at the Elimination Chamber so he can break him in front of his family and friends.
