For weeks now Sami Zayn has been asking Raw General Manager Mick Foley for a match with Braun Strowman, and before Foley booked the match for Roadblock, Sami Zayn was threatening to jump ship to SmackDown.
This week on Raw, Mick Foley told Sami Zayn that he would trade him to SmackDown if that’s what he really wanted, so Foley pretended to talk to Daniel Bryan and organize a trade. Sami Zayn met Mick Foley in the middle of the ring, and Foley told Sami that he was going to trade him to SmackDown for a talent of equal value, and that he was trading him for Eva Marie. That didn’t go over too well with Sami Zayn, or fans on social media, but it definitely got a lot of people talking about Eva Marie.
Eva Marie reacted to all of the attention when she posted the following:

Over the weekend Alberto Del Rio was involved in a backstage fight with a wrestler in Mexico, and it was rumored that the fight started because the wrestler touched Paige.
Alberto Del Rio commented on the fight on Twitter, and he noted that anyone who inappropriately touches Paige will need to be taught a lesson.
Just to clarify. If you inappropriately touch my fiancee in front of my face you have to prepare to learn a lesson. #Respect
