Current Plans For Samoa Joe & The Objective With Sami Zayn Last Night On RAW

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer is reporting some intriguing notes behind the Samoa Joe and Sami Zayn angle last night on RAW.

According to Meltzer on last night’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Vince McMahon didn’t it want to turn Joe babyface just yet. Vince wants it to be a big moment for Joe went he makes a turn to the light side and doesn’t want him eased into the role. According to Meltzer, the last thing that Vince wanted was for Sami Zayn to get an incredible pop from his home country crowd so putting him up against Joe who was angled as a babyface briefly (before he turned heel on the crowd) would stifle cheers for Sami.
