Sami Zayn/AEW Reference On WWE RAW Update (5/28/2019)

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet has chimed in on the Sami Zayn/AEW reference last night on Raw and according to his report, Zayn was told ahead of time to "mention" AEW during his "Electric Chair" segment. It also sounds like Zayn was free to mention it in whatever way he saw fit. This report also adds that the audience members who were chosen to ask the questions were legitimate and not plants by the company in any way.

WWE went ahead and deleted the AEW reference from their YouTube highlights.
