WWE always tries to add new things every once in a while, which usually do not last long. This includes the infamous electric chair segment on RAW with Sami Zayn.
Zayn spoke to Catch-Newz.com in France, where he was questioned regarding the electric chair segment. During that segment, Sami Zayn urged the crowd to ask him anything and said: “You could have asked me about AEW!” This was later edited from replays. According to Sami, it was not a big deal at that time.
No no. It really was not a big story other than what was on the internet. At the end of the day, the segment was a small new segment that we were trying for people. An unscripted thing. I knew that if we say ”AEW” that was the way that people will talk about it.
That’s exactly what happened. As you see, nothing really happened after I said that. It was done once, and nothing happened.
Much more controversy on the internet on the subject, but it’s important to have the people talking about it. It was a small segment for one time only, to have the people talking about it, that was the idea.
With the first run not being received well by WWE, it is unlikely we will be seeing it make a return ever again. Zayn is currently busy being the manager for Shinsuke Nakamura.
