The jury is still deciding on Sami Zayn as a part of the main roster. There is no question that the WWE Universe is naturally favorable to him.

A long career on the independents and his run in NXT have done him a lot of favors, but he is just getting his feet wet on the main roster, and the WWE Universe is still figuring him out.

The best part about Sami Zayn is that it’s only a matter of time.

Recently, “The Underdog From the Underground” spoke with to promote Monday Night Raw in Omaha, Nebraska as well as his focus on the Intercontinental Championship.

You can read the full interview right here. Below are some of the highlights:

How has the pro wrestling audience changed over time?

“There’s people like you, like me who grew up watching Randy Savage and Bret Hart. Those are the guys we grew up watching. Then there are the guys who watched them like Steve Austin and Mick Foley. It’s funny how the generations really change and morph.

You’re seeing that on the roster as well. It is completely unrecognizable to 10 years ago. That’s why it’s this new era. This is a new generation. It’s my generation. We’re gonna do it right. We’re gonna make these fans have a reason to cheer.”

How are audiences different in Japan or Europe compared to the United States?

“That’s part of what makes traveling such an important part of becoming a well-rounded and seasoned pro wrestler. You want to get good at anything, but it takes experience. A crowd in Japan is completely different than a crowd in Omaha, and crowds in Omaha are different from crowds in Philadelphia. In Japan, the crowds are really silent during the match but very, very attentive and very respectful.”
