Get of place to ask this as any...

I've heard he's been killing It at the house shows so I'm not that worried....

But has Sami had a "best match of the night" match televised since he's been back. Not counting when he was the only match on the show? Just a little worried this injury might have taken him down...

His match with Samoa Joe at the NXT TV tapings in Full Sail at the end of January - the Best of 3 falls match with Joe. Many loved that match.

Otherwise, I just don't think he's really had the opportunity. His only program since returning has basically been with Samoa Joe, and the matches before the Best of 3 Falls were all gimmicked finishes pushing towards the Best of 3 Falls match. On WWE TV, he's only had 1 singles match of any substance - vs Stardust at Roadblock, which was average.

This is so close. So damn close. Went with Owens though. Give it a few months and it will likely change.

I'm personally a Kevin Owens fan, and he has the better mic skills to Sami's charisma-less personality, so I went with KO, which helps because Owens is just as good, if not better, of a wrestler than Zayn... Not to mention Sami has been on the shelf and is just getting back into the swing of things

I will say though, he and Stardust had a terrific match at WWE Roadblock, and Zayn's 2-of-3 falls match with Joe was superb. He's going to permanently be on the main roster soon and will be great for the mid-card scene.

Owens, even though he's just another wrestler now in the "E".

Zayn was arguably best in the world in 2014. He hasn't been quite the same since coming back yet. But Zayn at his best is better than Owens at his best.

Zayn is probably my favorite wrestler in the world but it's hard to argue with Owens' output so far this year. By the end of the year, I'll probably say Zayn but at this moment in this tournament as constructed, it's Owens.

I thought this matchup would be so much closer.
