Sami Zayn defeated Braun Strowman in a Falls Count Anywhere match last night on RAW, and subsequently took the Monster Among Men's spot in the Money in the Bank ladder match. Sami Zayn, the Underdog from Underground, is an exceptional addition to the ladder match, as he has performed exceedingly well in past ladder matches.
Sami Zayn returned from a year-long absence due to injury and debuted a new gimmick in April. He is essentially the anti-CM Punk, putting all the blame on the fans instead of the McMahon Family.
Sami Zayn participated in the WWE Championship match last week on SmackDown Live and was pinned by Kofi Kingston. However, his performance in the match propelled the WWE authorities to reward him with a spot in the ladder match.
Sami Zayn is arguably the most deserving superstar to win the ladder match, and go on to win the WWE or Universal Championship in future. We list five reasons why the Underdog from Underground must become Mr. Money in the Bank!
#5: Best wrestler on the roster
Sami Zayn's wrestling skills are not a secret to any wrestling follower, and Zayn has delivered high-quality match-ups on a consistent basis in WWE.
His matches in NXT with the likes of Neville, Owens, etc, followed by his main roster duels with Kevin Owens (again!), AJ Styles, etc, have asserted his phenomenal wrestling abilities.
Most of the Money in the Bank winners go on to win the World Championship and subsequently participate in the main-events of RAW, SmackDown, and PPVs. A man of Zayn's caliber will be a welcome addition to the main-event scene, and will help WWE to deliver quality match-ups every week!
