• WWE Was Very Concerned During Cody Rhodes’ Segment On RAW

This week’s RAW took place in Canada, which is Sami Zayn’s home country, so he got cheered big time.

He opened the show and was involved in a segment with Kevin Owens.

Later in the show, Cody Rhodes came to the ring to cut a promo, but was quickly interrupted by Paul Heyman on the titantron.

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE Officials were concerned about fans chanting for Sami during Cody’s promo, so they decided to have Heyman cut him off right away:

“When Cody was out there… the stuff with Cody and Heyman… they were very concerned about Sami chants, which is one of the reasons why they got Heyman out there in seconds.

They did not want Cody in there by himself because they thought that, I mean it didn’t happen, but boy they did everything in their power to make sure they kept that moving, they did not allow the audience a chance to start chanting or anything like that, it was just back-and-forth.

It was designed to give the audience no chance to chant that because of the feeling that if they did it would hurt Cody’s momentum. And perhaps it would, and then it could create that groundswell which is exactly what they don’t want right now, but it didn’t happen. It was a little on the flat side.”
