Former WWE Superstar Sylvain Grenier recently addressed the possibility of Sami Zayn defeating Roman Reigns at the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event.

Last Saturday, Zayn turned on The Bloodline after Reigns defeated Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble. The former Honorary Uce refused to join The Bloodline's attack on Owens after the match. Instead, he hit The Tribal Chief with a chair. On the latest episode of SmackDown, Zayn told Reigns that he was now coming for his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The two superstars will square off in a title match at Elimination Chamber in Zayn's hometown of Montreal.

Speaking on Cafe de Rene, Grenier addressed the possibility of Zayn being the one to defeat Reigns instead of the 2023 Royal Rumble winner, Cody Rhodes.

"You know, because I don't want it to look like Daniel Bryan a couple of years ago. He's in that kind of position. And since the turn just happened, maybe I create a WrestleMania moment, not the Chamber. Create a WrestleMania moment. And sometimes it doesn't have to be a, a match. It can be, he runs in the ring in Roman's match. He make Roman lose to Cody, can be something like that," he said. [1:25:17 - 1:25:53]

The former WWE World Tag Team Champion pointed out that the World Title does not matter in Zayn's feud with Reigns as it has become more personal.

"Do you think the belt really matter at that storyline? I don't think it does. I think it's more personal. I wish for him, especially in Montreal, if he wins in Montreal the place is gonna go banana. But it's gonna take away from the champion because if the champion wins in Montreal and beat the hometown boy, the roof is gonna explode but the wrong way and that's what they want because he's a heel now. So, I think they're gonna keep the heat on Roman," Grenier added. [1:25:57 - 1:26:33]
