• Sami Zayn On If He Received Heat Backstage For Mentioning AEW On RAW

During an ‘Electric Chair’ segment on RAW a few days after AEW’s Double Or Nothing PPV took place, Sami Zayn mentioned “AEW” live on RAW.

During a recent interview with Catch-Newz, Zayn was asked if he received heat backstage for mentioning AEW and below is what Zayn said:

“No, no. It really was not a big story other than what was on the internet.

At the end of the day, the segment was a small new segment that we were trying for people; an unscripted thing. I knew that if we say ‘AEW’ that was the way that people will talk about it.

That’s exactly what happened. As you see, nothing really happened after I said that. It was done once, and nothing happened.

Much more controversy on the internet on the subject, but it’s important to have the people talking about it. It was a small segment for one time only, to have the people talking about it, that was the idea.”
