Sami Zayn went through a huge change in character over the past year, as he went from babyface to a conniving heel. His current gimmick sees him as a conspiracy theorist who thinks WWE is out to get him at every opportunity. Zayn is also hell-bent on finishing up his documentary and show the world that he never lied in the first place.
Sami Zayn’s feud with the likes of Kevin Owens over the years has drawn a lot of praise from fans and pro wrestlers alike. Zayn continues to hone his craft and is a highlight of WWE television.
Sami Zayn won the #1 contender Black Friday battle royal on Friday Night Smackdown last week. However, on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, he was convinced by Brock Lensar to face Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title.
While speaking on the Busted Open podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry gave massive props to Sami Zayn for being an incredible worker.
“As it relates to potential, Sami Zayn possesses all the potential in the world to be the best heel or the best face. It is simply the matter of where you book him, where you push him. You talked about respecting Zaym and loving the guy as a person, there are not many whom I hold in a higher regard because his talent is undeniable. No, he does not look like Adonis, he has no need to. The guy is an unbelievable worker.”
Sami Zayn’s hopes and dreams were crushed after he was attacked by Brock Lesnar. Then Roman Reigns defeated him in a squash match and retained his WWE Universal Championship. It remains to be seen what is next in store for Sami Zayn.
