Backstage News on the Status of Sami Zayn’s WWE Raw Push

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it appears as if Sami Zayn’s brief push on WWE Raw has come to an end.

The report notes after Seth Rollins went down with injury, WWE was forced to push Zayn due to the fact that Roman Reigns was the only regularly performing top babyface on the Raw roster.

However, with Chris Jericho turning face, as well as Finn Balor and Seth Rollins returning soon, WWE is no longer in need of Zayn in a top spot.
