Sami Zayn returned to his heel persona shortly after his return to the WWE programming and he has been doing some amazing promo work since then.
Zayn has been trashing fans in his promos for being entitled and it appears that his great work on the mic has caught the eye of the WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry.
Henry talked about the former NXT Champion during the recent episode of Busted Open Radio and went on to compare Zayn to none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin:
He is the best promo in wrestling today. There is no one close. Sami is giving an opinion that is so polarizing that you have to sit there and listen. Even if you disagree, people are sitting and they’re not clapping, they’re not booing and hissing — unless he prompts them to — they’re sitting there like ‘wow, he’s right.’ … Sami is doing Steve Austin type promos. Steve Austin was not going to the ring trying to make the fans feel good — Steve Austin was about Steve Austin; Sami Zayn is about Sami Zayn. He’s going to get his point across, and you’re going to listen.
Continuing on the topic, Mark Henry said that there is a lot going on in WWE Television with Superstar Shakeup and new champions but Sami Zayn is still the most interesting thing on TV right now. You can check out his comments below:
