Sami Zayn Blasted For “Throwing Punches Like A Girl”
Sami Zayn may have received a huge ovation on Raw as he came to Kevin Owen’s aid but that wasn’t enough for Vince Russo who felt that Zayn’s offense was “phony.”
The main event of the 10th of April edition of Raw saw Kevin Owens square off with Solo Sikoa as the issues between Owens, Zayn, and The Bloodline continue past WrestleMania. Ultimately, the situation disintegrated into a brawl with The Usos backing up Sikoa while Sami Zayn and Matt Riddle ran down to even up the sides.
Speaking on Sportskeeda’s Legion of Raw, Vince Russo – who Hulk Hogan has had a lot to say about in a recently unearthed interview – stated that he believed Sami Zayn’s punches spoiled the run-in on Raw:
“I know Sami Zayn used to be El Generico. I think I worked with Sami Zayn once or twice when he was at TNA when he was El Generico. Here’s what I know, he’s been doing this for a very long time. They do this big run in at the end because Kevin Owens their buddy is getting pumped. Sami Zayn is throwing punches like a girl.
“I am a guy watching a television show, they are beating you best friend to a pulp, you guys come running through the parking garage like Superman and Batman side by side and the minute you get out in the arena, you’re gonna start giving rabbit punches to the side of the head.
“I would love to know the excuse for that because the second you throw that first rabbit punch that wouldn’t hurt a fly, you’ve lost me. Now it’s fake, now it’s phony, just like I thought it was. Look at the punches Sami Zayn is throwing, you’ve got to be better than that.”
