WWE Raw Ends With Heartbreaking Heel Turn

Sami Zayn Chad Gable WWE

One WWE star has snapped after coming up short again in a big match as Raw ended in turmoil with a big heel turn on the show.

Sami Zayn ended the historic Intercontinental Title reign of Gunther at WrestleMania 40 in one of the biggest wins of his career. But as champion, there is never too long to celebrate in WWE and on Raw in Montreal, Zayn had his first defence of the gold against Chad Gable.

Chad Gable was the man who lost to Zayn which allowed Zayn to challenge Gunther at WrestleMania. Gable then took it upon himself to help train Zayn for that match to ensure a new Intercontinental Champion was crowned but he did remind Zayn at WrestleMania that he wanted a favour in return.

That favour was a shot at the title and that match took place in Sami Zayn’s hometown of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Zayn entered the arena through the crowd to a raucous reception and the two men put on a wrestling clinic. Ultimately, Sami Zayn picked up the win to retain his gold.

Chad Gable Breaks Hearts On WWE Raw

Gable raised Sami Zayn’s hand after the match but as the champion hugged his wife at ringside, Gable snatched him with a vicious German suplex as he turned on the star. Chad Gable followed that up with a sickening ankle lock through the ropes as the crowd showered him boos.

Chad Gable was seen earlier in the night training for the match with The Creed Brothers which may well indicate a whole new Alpha Academy could be on its way.
