Via Fightful: Sami Zayn spoke with Paul Heyman and Kayla Braxton about a conspiracy to keep him out of the main event picture and away from Roman Reigns.
Sami said that he does have respect for Reigns for “no longer being a corporate shill who toes the company line.”
Heyman responded to Zayn stating: “I’d like to say one of three things here. Number one, he says they want to keep him out of the ring against someone like Roman Reigns, ladies and gentlemen, there is no one like Roman Reigns. He’s the #1 box office attraction, the #1 star here in WWE.”
Heyman continues burying Zayn: “Sami’s right, there’s a conspiracy against him. I was the Executive Director of Monday Night Raw. Sami was on Raw. I conspired against him every week. I don’t like the guy, he’s a prick.”
After unleasing on Zayn, Heyman spoke about Roman Reigns calling him the “golden goose”: “Roman Reigns was the Golden Goose of WWE until he learned that the Golden Goose controls the distribution of the golden eggs. So the real power here, as Adam Pearce is going to learn, lies with the Tribal Chief, the Golden Goose himself, Roman Reigns.”
Just a few days ago on WWE Smackdown, Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin defeated Rey and Dominik Mysterio to qualify for Smackdown’s Elimination Chamber match. The winner will have the opportunity to face Roman Reigns later that night.
