Sami Zayn is politically outspoken, and he is never short on words when asked to give his opinion. Joe Biden is the new President Elect of the United States, and Zayn had something to say about the 45th POTUS.
Zayn tweeted out to Donald Trump to say “don’t let the door hit” him on the way out. This was covered in our collection of reactions throughout the pro wrestling world. We invite you to check out that extensive article here.
Sami Zayn followed that first tweet up with a second one which explains why he dislikes Trump so much. He sees Trump as infringing on his “cowardly heel” gimmick, and he didn’t seem to be joking.
One petty reason I dislike Trump is that he has infringed on my gimmick of being a delusional, cowardly heel. Not even joking. So much of the arrogance, paranoia, victimhood & denial that has long been the language of the heel wrestler is now attributed to him & it pisses me off.
Sami Zayn understands that the pro wrestling world doesn’t just exist in the pro wrestling bubble. Any number of things from outside the confines of kayfabe can influence the show, the audience, and an overall storyline. Vince McMahon only lives in that WWE bubble which is why it’s not unheard of for the company to book a tone deaf angle.
