It’s been a couple of weeks since Sami Zayn has graced Raw with his presence, but give The Underdog from the Underground props for a water-cooler worthy return.
After throwing some Twitter shade at Sheamus, Zayn was placed into a one-on-one bout with The Celtic Warrior that was something of a must-win for both men. Zayn needed a big win to re-establish himself, and the Irishman was coming off two straight losses to Cesaro.
Zayn certainly proved his fearlessness when he threw his jacket in the Irish brawler’s face, and he proved his resilience when he hung tough down the stretch despite being thrown into the ringpost. But, ironically, Cesaro gave The Celtic Warrior his third straight “L” in as many weeks by distracting Sheamus when he lined Zayn up for the Brogue Kick. Zayn rallied by blasting Sheamus with a Helluva Kick of his own, and the win was his. (¡Olé!)
As for Cesaro and Sheamus, their war is far from over, though they at least have new marching orders: Mick Foley placed them into a Best of Seven Series to determine the better man, with the first bout to take place at SummerSlam.
