Heel Sami Zayn is quietly becoming the best part of Raw

Maybe the best acquisition for Raw was just Sami Zayn coming back from his injury.

Free to be his smug self, but also free from being associated with Kevin Owens, Zayn is flourishing on Raw. For the past handful of weeks, Zayn was tasked with putting a new spin on a heel verbally berating pro wrestling fans.

We’ve been down this road 1,000 times and it’s an easy way to get cheap heat, and despite working inside a pro wrestling trope, Zayn just keeps knocking it out of the park.

Long live Heel Sami Zayn and thank you for sir for telling us how bad we really are.

Will he always be stuck in the mid-card or does the new Zayn have the legs to make it all the way up to the Raw main event scene?
