John Cena ruled over the WWE landscape as the Franchise Player of the company. The Face that Runs the Place has stepped in the ring with legends and superstars of today, seeing many of them come and go. However, it seems like Cena is quite impressed with one superstar on the current roster. The one competitor who has impressed everyone in the last year has been Sami Zayn.

Sami Zayn emerged as one of the hottest acts on WWE television programming last year. His highly engaging storyline with Roman Reigns and The Bloodline was nothing less than remarkable.

That led to Zayn’s meteoric rise as a top-caliber WWE superstar, making him a huge fan favorite among the WWE Universe. Moreover, the former Sami Uso was even involved in a high-stakes World title match against Roman Reigns just last month.

Furthermore, the 16-time World champion praised Sami Zayn and mentioned that he initially struggled to connect with the audience during recent appearance on Whisky Talk with Andrew Santino. John Cena also mentioned that Zayn’s efforts have paid off and he put in a lot of effort to establish a strong connection with the WWE Universe.


“I gotta give Sami his comeuppance. Here’s a guy who’s been in the business a long time and worked really hard in circuits outside the WWE and made a great name for himself, then got in WWE in the NXT program and made a great name for himself, and then got into WWE and kind of struggled to connect with the audience. Everyone now, because he’s very popular now, thinks it’s like [snaps fingers], alright, it clicked. His character went through a major reconstruction just about three years ago, maybe even a little more than that. It’s taken him three and a half years, and now all that hard work, and I can see it, I can see how hard he works, and I see how he’s invested in connecting with the audience. It’s paid off. Everybody loves him because they know who he is.”

John Cena was Sami Zayn’s first opponent on the main roster in 2015 when he answered Cena’s US Open Challenge. Furthermore, both are slated for high-stakes matches at WrestleMania 39 as Cena will challenge Austin Theory for the United States title while Zayn will team up with Kevin Owens to take on The Uso for the Undisputed WWE tag team titles.

Do you think Sami Zayn is now one of the top WWE superstars? Is John Cena right about him? Sound off in the comments!
