WWE is obviously paying attention to AEW because they flat-out said “AEW” live on television.
The third hour of RAW is going to get interesting and WWE is supposed to be going for a grittier version of the show. They certainly went somewhere different during Corey Graves’ “Electric Chair” segment with Sami Zayn.
The Underdog From The Underground sat in an electric chair in the ring while questions were fielded from the fans in attendance. After getting a few bad questions and Zayn mocked everyone he then started going after one man for asking a very stupid question.
This is when Zayn said “you could have asked me anything! You could have asked me about AEW!”
This promoted AEW chants from the crowd as well and the commentary team seemed hushed. That was the closing part of the segment as Seth Rollins came right out to start his match against Sami Zayn.
