Survivor Series is that time of the year in WWE when brand supremacy becomes most important. There is no NXT in the mix this year, yet the card looks impressive. One of those impressive matches on the card is Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn taking on the United States Champion Bobby Lashley.
Sami Zayn successfully defended his championship against Apollo Crews this past week on SmackDown. In a post-match, WWE Network Exclusive interview, Sami Zayn warned Bobby Lashley with some strong words.
He said, “You’re very strong. One of the strongest men I’ve ever seen. When it comes to strategy (laughs) you are so outmatched. You are so outclassed. You have no idea, I’m a master strategist. I am a genius.”
Sami further said that he is a worldly man and a champion that represents everybody in four different languages! He concluded by giving a stern warning to Lashley and said that he will school him [Bobby Lashley].
Bobby Lashley didn’t stand back in the face of such disparaging comments. Reacting to the video, he also sent out a warning tweet, but calmly.
Lashley brought attention to Sami speaking four languages, one each for every member of The Hurt Business that he would have to deal with at Survivor Series. Lashley also asked Sami to use his genius to stay safe from the Hurt Business.
The exchange between the two did not end there. Sami Zayn sarcastically replied by throwing light on the forgettable feud and segments the two had 2 years ago.
Sami Zayn and Bobby Lashley are both exceptional athletes. Bobby is a behemoth while Sami can put on splendid matches with just about anyone on the WWE roster.
Last time around, the feud between the two never really picked up, and all we got were some embarrassing segments on Raw. Remember Bobby Lashley’s sisters?
This time around, the build is different. It’s all about brand supremacy and about which champion is the best. For now, this twitter battle is just a teaser of things to come at Survivor Series. Who will walk out of Survivor Series as the more superior champion? We can only find out on November 23, 2020 at Survivor Series.
