New York hates Trae Young

Sami Zayn, smart ass that he is, decided to bring a special guest to this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown at Madison Square Garden in New York City. None other than Atlanta Hawks star and Knicks killer, Trae Young.

They hate this man:

The Knicks played the Hawks in the first round of the NBA Playoffs this year and Young absolutely tore their hearts out, leading Atlanta to a 4-1 series win. As you can see, he’s a natural heel playing right into it.

Fun times!

It got even better, as he was out as Zayn’s guest for a 10-man tag team match. While he was ringside, he got involved, sneakily attacking Rey Mysterio while he was vulnerable on the ropes. He was caught by the referee in the ring, though, and ejected:

Referees in the NBA might put up with that kind of nonsense but we have integrity around these parts!

What a fun celebrity appearance this was.
