WWE reportedly “very concerned” about Sami Zayn chants affecting Cody Rhodes momentum

Sami vs Roman match was well received by Montreal crowd, If Sami had won the title, it would have been a heart-warming moment for Montreal crowd. Roman’s next opponent is Cody Rhodes, he would be facing Rhodes at WrestleMania 39. When Cody took some time off from WWE after HIAC due to injury, at that time he was the only top babyface in WWE, but now Sami is also a top babyface.

Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio is reporting that WWE is very concerned about Sami chants during RAW, so Paul Heyman was involved in Cody’s segment. Meltzer also noted that WWE did everything in their power to not give a chance for fans to chant Sami Zayn.

“The stuff with Cody and Heyman – they (WWE) were very concerned about Sami chants, which is one of the reasons why they got Heyman out there in seconds.

“They did not want Cody in there by himself because they thought that – it didn’t happen – but they did everything in their power to make sure they kept that moving, they did not allow the audience a chance to start chanting or anything like that, it was just back-and-forth.

“It was designed to give the audience no chance to chant because of the feeling that if they did it would hurt Cody’s momentum.

“And perhaps it would, and then it could create that groundswell (for Zayn) which is exactly what they don’t want right now.”
