On an episode of Busted Open Radio this week, WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry offered some real high praise for Sami Zayn’s verbal ability. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On feeling that Zayn is the best promo in the business today: “I listen to Sami’s banter, and the people are now sitting and listening like they’re in church. They’re not a wrestling audience, they’re an audience. And they’re listening to him, and they’re learning from him, and he is the best promo in wrestling today. There’s no one close. Sami is giving an opinion that is so polarizing, that you have to sit there and listen, even if you disagree.”
On comparing Zayn’s promos now to “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s promos during his time: “The things that he’s saying are hitting him, and you can tell who he is affecting…Sami is doing Steve Austin type promos. Steve Austin was going to the ring and not trying to make the crowd feel good. He’s going to get his point across, and you’re going to listen.”
