Well that was a surprise. We are less than four weeks away from Wrestlemania and that means things are starting to come into focus. At the same time though, there are still a lot of things to get done first and that means we could see some things happen before we get there. That included at Elimination Chamber, there a surprise title change took place in a unique way.
Titles are one of the most important things in all of wrestling. It is very rare to see a feud that doesn’t involve a title in some way and they are one of the easiest ways to advance a story. When someone steals a title from someone more deserving, it can get all the more frustrating and that can set up a heck of a rematch. That may be the case at the moment, with WrestleMania looming.
Sami Zayn won the Intercontinental Title from Braun Strowman in a handicap match at Elimination Chamber. Zayn was part of a three man team, also including Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura, who helped him defeat Strowman. The match was Nakamura’s rematch after losing the title to Strowman in February, with Strowman agreeing to face all three at once.
We might be seeing this again. Check out what happens when Zayn faces Strowman one on one:
Opinion: This could work well if the likely match at WrestleMania sees Strowman crush Zayn inside of thirty seconds. I’m not sure how wise it was to have Strowman win the title in the first place when you could give him his first title win at WrestleMania, but WWE has this weird philosophy where holding a title is more important than winning it. Anyway, it should be a good WrestleMania beating, if they don’t mess something up.
