Matt Hardy Thinks WWE Elimination Chamber Helped Sami Zayn Despite Loss


Sami Zayn wasn’t able to topple The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns at this year’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event, but a longtime ring veteran doesn’t think the loss will hurt him.

Speaking on the latest episode of his The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, the “Sensei of Matt-itude” thinks that Zayn will be just fine in the long run.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Zayn’s loss at Elimination Chamber: “I don’t think it was controversial at all. I thought it was pro wrestling at its absolute best. I thought it was done so well. I thought Sami Zayn having the match that he had against Roman… even in losing, it still elevated Sami Zayn.”

On Cody defeating Roman for the titles at WrestleMania: “You have to always remember the bigger picture and the greater good, and greater good is like, doing a title change at WrestleMania. I think the call to go with, to go with Cody and let him be the guy to defeat Roman I think that’s the way to go. I think it’s the right move and I don’t think it hurts Sami one bit.”
