What happened to Sami Zayn?
After his big victory over long-term rival Kevin Owens at this year’s Battleground pay-per-view, in a match of the year candidate, it looked as if Sami had officially arrived on the main roster and big things lay ahead for him.
However, since then Zayn has faded into relative obscurity and it appears the WWE has creative struggles with planning interesting storylines, for the former El Generico outside of a feud with Kevin Owens.
This would be a huge missed opportunity if WWE fails to rectify this soon. Zayn is one of the most popular performers they have on the entire roster, and he is certainly worth some investment from the powers that be.
This article will look at 5 possible future paths and potential feuds for Sami Zayn, starting with…
#1 Tag Team with Neville
This seems the most likely path for Zayn currently considering what happened on this week’s Raw and while I don’t believe this is the way to go with either men long term, it gives them both some exposure which they have desperately needed recently.
I could see Zayn & Neville remaining as a team for the next month or so, and wouldn’t be surprised if they end up being one of Raw’s top five tag teams in the 10-on-10 inter-promotional match, that looks set for the upcoming Survivor Series pay-per-view.
Let’s be honest, that appears to be the only way either of them have a chance at getting on that card currently.
However, I wouldn’t have their partnership continue much longer after Survivor Series and would love to see a friendly, yet competitive feud between the former NXT Champions.
