Sami explains why he did what he did at HIAC and it’s absolutely believable and reasonable:
I’m glad they are working the angle like this instead if having him do an awkward 180 with his personality. Altough I still don’t think his alliance with Owen’s will last, just look at Owen’s best friend stabbing record.
Their dynamic now isn’t too different than what it was on ROH (it’s probably even more healthy in this iteration). But I agree just because WWE is usually adverse to the slow burn. I do wanna week them against the New Day.
