Braun Strowman refused to battle Sami Zayn
Sami Zayn — brave, brave Sami Zayn — stepped up to Braun Strowman last week when the big man demanded some true competition. The Gift of Destruction, as it turned out, was not as impressed with Zayn as he initially seemed to be. When Zayn took the ring for their planned match, Strowman ignored him entirely, demanding Mick Foley present him some real competition. Harsh. Still, Zayn would not be denied, attacking Strowman when the mountainous Superstar didn’t show him proper respect. He at least got Strowman’s attention, in the form of a slap to the face and a kick to the head. But Strowman got the better of the exchange when he snatched Zayn out of midair and threw him into the barricade before leaving in disgust. Still, Zayn remained defiant, returning to his feet and demanding Strowman to throw down even as “The Abominable Strowman” departed the stage.
