Poor Sami Zayn. There’s little competition for number one, and when there’s a whole conspiracy against you, it’s easy to pressure yourself into something you’re not ready for.Brock Lesnar, who has just been suspended, is the man behind ‘SmackDown’ On a random early December episode of his, he forced Sami to face Roman Reigns. This was mostly so that Brock could get Roman at his upcoming Day One Premium Live event. It didn’t go the way Brock intended, but the setup for the Zayn/Reigns championship “match” was interesting, and Brock turned on Sami just as quickly as he earned Zayn’s trust. came out to provide support before the match, but Sami instead decided to point out that Lesnar has been lacking against Roman lately. .Brock completely destroyed Zayn and propped him up in Roman’s corner. Ding, spear, guillotine, submission.
The match barely qualified, but it hardly mattered. Sami was, and always will be, Mike’s gold and was never meant to be a serious threat to Roman. He was a run-through and he was one notch more in Roman’s belt. If anything, the addition of Brock his Lesnar in Sami’s short-lived number one contender spot made the inevitable squash interesting. Also, see how far Sami has come from this match! Honorable Lies, Roman’s Chosen, valued members of the bloodline, and the glue that holds together the most powerful factions in all of professional wrestling.
