Recently, stories have been circling dirt sheets in regards to how Vince McMahon is burying Sami Zayn, that he doesn’t like him and feeds him to the likes of Braun Strowman. Apparently, that has all been a ruse to give Zayn an incredible push towards WrestleMania 33.
Sheetsandwich.com had a report (which has now been taken down at the writing of this article) that states that a WWE insider revealed to the website that Zayn’s push would ultimately be at WrestleMania 33 in a Triple Threat Match for the Universal Championship between Kevin Owens and the returning Finn Balor.
It would be a unique story as all 3 have held the NXT Championship, with Zayn first followed by Owens and then Balor. The report also said that the reason they were having Zayn look unworthy and fighting guys like Braun Strowman was so the shock of him either winning a number 1 contenders match or potentially the Royal Rumble would be huge.
