As noted, last night’s WWE RAW saw Sami Zayn name-drop All Elite Wrestling during an in-ring Q&A segment with fans, hosted by Corey Graves.
WWE has edited the name-drop out of the segment video that was posted to YouTube, as seen above.
The AEW name-drop was scripted and written into the show, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. For what it’s worth, Meltzer’s co-host Bryan Alvarez noted that he heard the mention was not scripted, which could mean trouble for Zayn.
Regarding the fan questions, those were legitimate, but they were screened by the company.
A WWE source noted to Meltzer that the mention was “so fucking stupid” for the company to do.
