With the main event for WrestleMania being the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns, it’s obvious that most of the attention should be on that.

However, there’s no denying the current popularity of Sami Zayn, as Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio, saying:

‘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.’
