Exclusive: Former WWE Tag Team Champion getting slow burn move towards World Heavyweight Title scene

Former WWE Tag Team Champion Sami Zayn appears to be getting a slow burn push towards the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

When I say slow burn though, I mean VERY slow burn. According to one of our more tenured sources, the company could be pushing this back towards the end of the year and even 2025.

“Long-term story. Likely for a long while. He [Sami] will be coming for McIntyre when he comes back seeing as Drew took him out. Establish Zayn as a singles main event talent properly then slowly build towards his WHC push. I’d like to say 2025 but I can’t be so sure about a date” we were told directly.

I’ll be trying to get a less vague timeframe on this in the coming weeks, but considering the landscape of the WWE main event scene right now it would feel odd to put Zayn back in that top slot so quickly.

It’s worth noting that the work that he put in during the Bloodline storyline has not gone unnoticed. Sami gave some of the best performances of the entire storyline and helped to massively put over Jey Uso as a man in his own right.
