5 reasons why Sami Zayn could turn heel at WWE Hell In A Cell 2017
The former NXT champion has been involved in segments with Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon, but he doesn't have a spot on the card.
For the second WWE pay-per-view in a row, Sami Zayn is set to miss out on a spot on the show.
The “Underdog from the Underground” is one of the most popular champions in NXT history, and his chase throughout 2014 to win the title from Neville is among the best stories told on WWE programming in the recent years.
However, things just haven’t worked for Sami on the main roster, both on Raw and SmackDown Live, so perhaps it’s time for a drastic change of character.
In this article, we give five reasons why a heel turn could be on the way.
#5 Zayn is underused as a face
Let’s get the obvious reason out of the way first.
Sami is barely in big storylines these days. The general feeling during his run on Raw was that he was lost in the shuffle and he’d be much better suited to SmackDown Live.
However, since making the move to the blue brand, he’s been in two underwhelming storylines, feuding with Baron Corbin and then Mike Kanellis, and he didn’t even make it to the SummerSlam card.
Underrated on the mic and unquestionably one of the best in-ring talents WWE has, he is simply too good at what he does to be missing major pay-per-views. And if a heel turn allows him more opportunities, then a heel turn it shall be.
