WrestleMania is a few short weeks away and fans are well aware that WrestleMania season is here because older stars have been returning to TV to set up their matches for the big show. Sami Zayn is just one of the full-time WWE stars who has yet to be officially added to the card, and he recently spoke to The Sun about part-timers taking WrestleMania spots.
When the guys who work all year round lose WrestleMania spots to the guys who only work part-time, it’s obviously not fun for them. But Sami Zayn noted that he also understands the value that big names add to the card, and their inclusion could potentially benefit him in the long run.
“Selfishly, of course part of me thinks, ‘Hey, get the hell out of here, this is our show, we work here every week.’ It would be stupid to ignore that. I can say a lot about Kevin Owens, but I’ve also seen him busting his ass for the last eight months as Universal Champion, doing street fights on live events, going through tables every night, getting beaten up. So personal feelings aside you think, ‘Man that guys works hard all year he deserves to be rewarded when the time is right.’ “But at the same time, Brock Lesnar or Bill Goldberg coming in… the fans like it, it’s good for business, and if it’s good for business, it’s good for me in a roundabout way. Do I wish I was main eventing WrestleMania and not Bill Goldberg? Yes, absolutely. But you know, might it be better in some way to bring these guys in to help business. If it’s helping business, it’s helping me.”
Fans were thrilled when Naomi defeated Alexa Bliss to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Elimination Chamber, but they were less than thrilled when she had to vacate the title a few days later due to injury.
Naomi vowed to return and reclaim her title, but it remains to be seen if she’ll be back in time for WrestleMania 33.
The former SmackDown Women’s Champion recently provided an update on her status and she says that rehab is going well so far, and she’s not giving up on WrestleMania.
Yes doing a lot better but I'm still going to rehab weekly knee still isn't at 💯 but I still have time to try & make mania I'm not giving up https://t.co/uCqd7Yxu8K

Daniel Bryan announced on SmackDown Live this week that Alexa Bliss will defend her Women’s Title against every woman on the SmackDown roster at WrestleMania 33, and one can’t help but wonder if the match will include Naomi.
We’ll have to wait and see.
