It Wasn’t A Promo That Convinced Vince McMahon That Sami Zayn Had ‘The Gift Of Gab’

Sami Zayn was recently a guest on Oral Sessions with Renée Paquette, where he spoke about his evolution as a WWE superstar and just how much of his storyline he gets to control. According to Zayn (via The Volume), it was a random moment that showed Vince McMahon Zayn could be a master on the microphone. 

“I’m pretty fortunate to where I actually feel like I’ve had a lot of my ideas go through, but then there was this one day, I was a guest referee or something for Kevin [Owens] versus Seth [Rollins],” he said when asked about his creative input. “I was just doing me, I didn’t even have any mic time, I was just ya know banter that the camera would pick up. I came back and Vince [McMahon] was like, ‘You’ve got the gift of gab we gotta, we gotta ya know’ and I wasn’t even cutting a promo I was being a ref, but they just started seeing me in this new light where like ‘This guy, he can be so much.’”

Zayn clearly has been given a much larger role throughout the last few months, and with his documentary regarding his conspiracy theory gaining traction, it’s only a matter of time before the superstar gets even bigger.
