“The Honorary Usa” Sami Zayn has been a staple of WWE programming for a decade now, first climbing his way to the top of “NXT” and then delivering several unforgettable storylines on the main roster. A war in particular Zion wasn’t even a part of but had a major role in what happened. Sami said Detroit news that 2017 Hell in a Cell match between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon where Sami drags Kevin off the announce table just as Shane jumps off 20 feet from the roof Cell left him “terrified”.
“You’re talking about micro split-second timing. I almost feel like it’s outside the scope of what we should be qualified to do as pro wrestlers, but it’s one of the many hats we wear. We’re not just wrestling technique, this There’s also storytelling and stunt work on the level, and sometimes you’re your own travel agent, your own booking agent, your own manager, your own stylist and your own everything. And sometimes you’re your own stunt coordinator.”
This extremely dangerous act was different from any typical spot wrestlers might practice over and over again like a typical top-rope maneuver. The trio had only one chance to get it right, and luckily, it turned out exactly how they planned it. Shane hit the table with a dull thud as Zayn dragged Owens to safety.
“It kind of reinforces how unique and crazy what we actually do. And when I stop to think about it, it’s kind of a shame that we don’t get the respect we deserve when it comes to this kind of thing in the world. Entertainment. What we are. What I do is fly without a safety net. There’s nothing to compare it to.”
