Cody Rhodes’ comeback to WWE during WrestleMania 38 was the beginning of a year-long saga that will culminate at this year’s WrestleMania. Rhodes wasted no time in becoming a top babyface. However, it seems his most recent promo with Paul Heyman was criticized for taking the heat off Sami Zayn.
Sami Zayn’s storyline with “The Bloodline” has been developing for several months and has become a standout, intricately crafted plot. The climax of the story took place at The Royal Rumble where Zayn delivered a stunning betrayal of Roman Reigns in one of the most memorable WWE segments in recent history.
This week’s episode of Monday Night RAW showcased a riveting exchange between Cody Rhodes and Paul Heyman, marked by their heated verbal exchanges. In the end, Heyman dropped a nuclear bomb on Rhodes, shocking everyone involved.
While speaking on the latest edition of Reffin Rant, Jimmy Korderas talked about the promo exchange between Rhodes and Heyman. While he praised the segment, Korderas also criticized it for taking the heat off Sami Zayn, ahead of Zayn’s match with Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber.
“They’ve done a great job to promote the Sami Zayn vs. Roman Reigns match at Elimination Chamber. But now everyone is looking past that and looking forward to Cody Rhodes instead of looking at the Sami Zayn-Roman Reigns match, which the setup for that has been gold as well. Maybe they should have just saved that moment for the ‘Raw’ after Chamber.”
Sami Zayn was also responsible for the promo battle on RAW that got everyone talking. Zayn will be challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Universal Championship at WWE Elimination Chamber on February 18th. We’ll have to wait and see how Zayn will perform in the match. In the meantime, keep checking back with Ringside News for more.
