In a recent interview, Eric Bischoff gave his opinion on why Sami Zayn shouldn’t capture the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship just yet. Bischoff spoke on the Kick Rocks Wrestling Podcast about the value of a character chasing the title instead of winning it right away.
Bischoff stated, “That’s so opposite of what a number of people believe but one of the most powerful characters you can have on your show is a babyface that’s striving to achieve something, a World title in this case. The value in that character isn’t getting the world title. The value in that character is the audience’s desire to see that character achieve something and be willing to go on that journey until he or she does. You don’t want to cut that short.”
Zayn was unsuccessful in his quest to defeat Roman Reigns for the world title at last weekend’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in Montreal.
