*Sami Zayn to the ring & Montreal goes batshit crazy…it’s a 7+ minute sustained standing ovation, with chants from “SAMI! SAMI!” to “Olé!” to “YOU DESERVE IT!” to what I can only assume was “F-U ROMAN!” as Fox had to mute the broadcast for more than a minute…when Sami finally manages to speak, it’s short & sweet…he gives the crowd some French…then warns Roman Reigns that he’s facing the entire city of Montreal & “YOU ARE GOING DOWN!”
