WWE RAW REPORT: TWO MORE MEN AND ONE MORE WOMAN IN THE MITB LADDER MATCH, NIA HAS HER OPPONENT, ROMAN AND JINDER, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-05-14 23:03:00

We are back and Sami Zayn is in the ring.  

He asks if people realize that Prince Harry looks like him.  He says that he has heard that the Prince is a big fan of his, unlike Bobby Lashley.  Bobby leaves for ten years and makes his return to Raw on the same night he did.  Bobby tries to make an impact, but he tried to do it at his expense.  

We see footage from a few weeks ago when Bobby gave him vertigo.  Did you think of the effect on him when he took that delayed vertical suplex?  It was the first case of vertigo in WWE history.  Do you think that is funny?  His doctor does not think it is funny.

Sami reads a note from his doctor.  Vertigo is a debilitating condition that affects you balance and motor skills.  That was why he could not compete in the Greatest Royal Rumble.  A match he should have won.  It cost him the qualifying match last week.  Bobby Lashley has victimized him to satisfy you?  Bobby is getting special treatment and he shows footage of the interview that Bobby did with Renee Young.

Sami says it made sense right away.  Bobby targeted him because Bobby wants to be him.  Look at the hat.  Sami says that is his hat.  Sami says he has learned to trust his instincts and Bobby had something to hide.  Sami used a little tool called Facebook and he contacted Bobby's sisters and boy did they have a story to tell.  They are nothing like Bobby described them to be.  Bobby is not the person he portrays himself to be.

Sami says you don't have to take his word for it, you can take their sister's word.  Sami says he has invited his sisters and Sami will expose the real Bobby Lashley.
