Kevin Owens def. Sami Zayn via disqualification

WWE has done a great job of slowly sewing the bond between Zayn and The Bloodline and just as carefully pulling at its seams. Reigns appeared to have set Zayn up for failure. Owens has proved to be a formidable foe and Zayn was expected to overcome an opponent that even Reigns is struggling with. It turned out Zayn was up to the task. The Usos and Solo Sikoa, well-intentioned or not, robbed Zayn of that moment. Following last week’s tension with Reigns, it appears WWE is ready to separate the two sides in what hopefully culminates with Reigns vs. Zayn in the latter’s hometown of Montreal, Quebec at Elimination Chamber.
