I like him but he looked out of place next to two Shield guys.

He looked like the annoying kid brother telling them his plan for the match.

He's so stale at the moment which isn't going to change anytime soon.

What we saw last night from Zayn in that backstage segment is a representation of his backstage persona. He annoys the hell out of people with his over planning, but to hear guys like Owens talk, it also goes towards making the match just that much better. Randy Savage was exactly the same way, so making a joke out of Zayn for being meticulous is literally ridiculous.

Quote It appears Sami Zayn's brief push on Raw has likely come to an end. After the injury to Seth Rollins, WWE was forced to push Zayn due to the fact that Roman Reigns was left as the only regularly performing babyface on the Raw roster. With Chris Jericho turning face, as well as Rollins and Finn Balor returning, further pushing Zayn at the moment is not necessary.


He needs to go to SD and start afresh now.

This doesn't much make sense however as Jericho is leaving after WWE Payback, and Balor has a real possibility of turning heel.

Zayn however is someone everyone knows is great, and is every bit as genuinely likable as Daniel Bryan was while actively wrestling. It would not be hard at all to fit Zayn into the same role as Daniel Bryan the wrestler from a few years ago, and WWE and the wrestling industry as a whole would benefit greatly for it.

Quote Jinder Mahal vs. Sami Zayn
While Sami Zayn is making his entrance, Mahal attacks him and stomps him at ringside. Mahal sends him into the steps and knees him in the face. Zayn clutches his shoulder in pain. Mahal punches away at him and sends him into the steps. Mahal then gets him in the ring.
The referee checks on Zayn and starts the match. Mahal attacks Zayn and drops some knees on him. Mahal gives him a back elbow and a low dropkick for a two count. Mahal applies a chin lock. Zayn fights up, but Mahal takes him down and drops some more knees for a two count. Mahal goes back to the chin lock, but Zayn fights up. Mahal takes him down with a high knee. Mahal then taunts the crowd. Zayn quickly catches him with an exploder suplex in the corner and follows up with the Helluva Kick for the win.

Winner by Pinfall: Sami Zayn

He's got to be traded to Smackdown next week, because he's above jobber victories like this.

He would have been a more deserving ATGMBR winner than Mojo.

They could have had him as the new main event partner for Rollins too.

So it looks like KO and Sami are moving more towards singles competition gradually...

KO obviously has qualified for MITB and now Zayn is going to feud with Lashley

Not sure where the angle with Lashley is going but it seems to me like WWE are making an effort to try and get Lashley over - first we had that video package thing last week and now Zayn is going to "expose the real bobby lashley"

Sami Zayn stood in the ring with a mic and told the singing crowd, “That’s enough of that.” He asked the fans if it’s occurred to anyone else that Prince Harry looks a lot like him. He said he hears Prince Harry is a big fan of his. Zayn turned the focus to Bobby Lashley and grumbled about fans cheering when Lashley performed a vertical suplex on him.

Zayn asked if the fans thought about what effect it had on him. Zayn said it led to him experiencing vertigo. He pulled out a note from his doctor and put on his reading glasses before reading the description of vertigo. He claimed he would have won the Greatest Royal Rumble and his MITB qualifier were it not for vertigo and Lashley victimizing him.

Zayn had them play “highlights” of Lashley’s interview with Renee Young from last week. Zayn said Lashley targeted him because Lashley wants to be him. Zayn pointed out that Lashley wore a hat like his. Zayn said his instincts told him that Lashley had something to hide, so he reached out to his sisters and they had a story to tell.

Zayn said the sisters are nothing like Lashley described them to be, nor is Lashley the person he portrays himself to be. Zayn said he invited Lashley’s sisters to appear on Raw next week to help him expose the real Bobby Lashley…

Oh that promo was horrible and cringey and went on far too long.
 
He was chatting shit that killed the crowd and for a five minute promo it felt at least twice as long listening to it.
 
Can't believe nobody was booked to save us from his rambling promo, that was all over the place.

It was overly long and a bit lame at times but Zayn is a great heel on the mic, when he talks he makes you want to
punch him in the face.

I think they have their work cut out getting Lashley over strong as a face, I can see him getting a divided reaction as like Roman Reigns he’s a guy handpicked for a top spot and cringey segments like the interview he did about his sisters are not going to help his cause.

It’s very clear Zayn is getting fed to Lashley.

I skipped it. Sounds like it was a good choice. I just can't be bothered with segments so obviously cringey from the get go.
