With the WWE just a few days away from Survivor Series, it has sparked up the tension between both brands. There has been brewing on-air tension on both sides. According to Wrestle Zone, Smackdown Live general manager Daniel Bryan stated that two Raw superstars want to join his brand.
During last night’s State of WWE Universe Network special, Daniel Bryan revealed to Mick Foley that both Sami Zayn and Cesaro told Bryan they wanted to make the jump from Raw to Smackdown.
It had been long speculated that Cesaro wanted to leave Raw because of his lack of growth in his role with the show. He had stated in an interview a few months ago that he thought he would have won a major WWE title by now. The frustration level with Cesaro are real.
As for Zayn, there hadn’t been much inkling that he wanted to switch shows. He hasn’t had much traction on Raw since the brand split aside from his recent feud with Braun Stroman. If he were to win the Intercontinental championship at Survivor Series, his outlook could change quickly.
