Find out what the real backstage reaction is within WWE to the rise of Sami Zayn as the star gets set for a major match at WrestleMania 39.
According to a report from Fightful Select, any reports that Sami Zayn isn’t viewed as a “top guy” in WWE have been greatly exaggerated.
With the source noted as a “higher up in the company,” quoted as saying about Zayn:
“He’s headlined a PPV, he is the focal point of our biggest shows. He’s main eventing WWE Raw, and is “1B” for the biggest storyline in the company. Elimination Chamber didn’t happen in his hometown by accident.
“For anyone to say that we don’t view him as a top guy just hasn’t been watching the program or are fabricating things. We had a solid set of plans in order both for him and the championship. Just because he isn’t competing for the championship, doesn’t mean he isn’t viewed at that level.
“He’s been the MVP since last Summer, and I couldn’t see many disagreeing with that point.”
