Sami Zayn Addresses Comparisons To Daniel Bryan's WWE WrestleMania 30 Win
Sami Zayn’s rise has been compared to that of Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30
He was formerly the ‘Underdog from the Underground’, and as he finds himself as the hottest act in WWE, Sami Zayn could be the ultimate underdog as he feuds with Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns heading into Elimination Chamber, with a possible WrestleMania showdown still on the cards.
Whilst many expect WWE to resist pulling the trigger on Zayn as a WrestleMania headliner, there is a chance that fan support for Zayn could force their hand, with longtime viewers seeing parallels between Zayn’s rise, and that of Daniel Bryan heading into WrestleMania 30.
Zayn himself commented on the comparison. Saying the following on The Sick podcast:
"I think the commonality there is just that it's something that the audience kind of did on their own," Zayn said. "I think any time you have the audience driving the emotion and not the creative direction driving where they'd like that emotion to be, it's just a much deeper connection when they're the ones choosing it and not being told ‘hey, choose this’. I think they just appreciate it more and get into it more."
