Welcome to another edition of the top SmackDown Rumors that could have a major impact on the blue brand. With the Elimination Chamber right around the corner, fans have been looking forward to seeing what SmackDown will offer this week.
In today’s edition, this article will take a look at a veteran admitting that he was part of a conspiracy against a top SmackDown Superstar. Apart from that, we will also take a look at WWE’s original plans for the Mysterio family on SmackDown. This article will also feature a rumor about two big Superstars who may not receive a push.
So without further ado, let us dive in and take a look at the biggest rumors related to SmackDown Superstars:
#5 Paul Heyman says he was part of a conspiracy against SmackDown’s Sami Zayn
SmackDown Superstar Sami Zayn was a guest on Talking Smack. Zayn talked about how he has been buried in WWE by the top management. After Zayn left, Paul Heyman said that he doesn’t like him. Heyman added that while he was on RAW, he conspired against Zayn every week.
“Sami’s right, there’s a conspiracy against him. I was Executive Director of Monday Night RAW. Sami was on RAW. I conspired against him every week. I don’t like the guy, he’s a pr***.”
It’s safe to assume that Paul Heyman was speaking in-character, although he did insinuate that he was not keen on pushing Sami Zayn when he was the creative head of Monday Night RAW.
While Heyman is part of Roman Reigns’ entourage on SmackDown, he has no creative powers and is just an on-screen character now.
Sami Zayn will participate in the upcoming Elimination Chamber match along with five other SmackDown Superstars. The winner will get a shot at facing Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the same event.
Who do you think will win the Elimination Chamber match this Sunday? Let us know in the comments section below.
