Sami Zayn survived for 10 minutes against Braun Strowman

PITTSBURGH — “More than most, I know the pain of surviving," author Ann Aguirre once wrote.  After lasting for 10 minutes against Braun Strowman at WWE Roadblock: End of the Line, Sami Zayn can truly appreciate the meaning of those words.

Everyone in the WWE Universe knew it would be no easy task for The Underdog of the Underground to endure for 10 minutes against the monstrous Strowman. And from second one, the 385-pound Superstar imposed his will on his undersized opponent, but Zayn was relentless in his attempt to go the distance.

However, with roughly four minutes left in the contest, Raw General Manager Mick Foley entered the arena with a white towel in place — a sign that he was clearly ready to call off the bout. The Monster Among Men demanded that Foley throw in the towel and save Zayn’s from further harm, while the former NXT Champion pleaded with The Hardcore Legend to let the match continue.

Zayn’s plea was heard and he and Strowman fought on, duking it out on the outside. With the seconds ticking away, the gigantic Superstar charged at Zayn, who moved out of the way, resulting in Strowman blasting through the barricade.

From there, both men answered the 10-count, and Zayn continued to bring his best to the monstrous Strowman. As the clock ticked down to zero, Zayn emphatically nailed Strowman with a Helluva Kick, and lived to fight another day.

Zayn won the challenge, but many in the WWE Universe were left with one thought: What could Strowman have done to Zayn if there wasn’t a time limit?
