Tonight on Monday Night Raw, one of the biggest up-and-coming stars on Team Red was finally fed up with how he was being treated and he demanded a trade. This is a long time coming even though the superstar draft just split up the WWE roster back in the summer. Sami Zayn has had some opportunities, but he just hasn’t been able to make the most of them and now, he has told Mick Foley that he wants to be traded to SmackDown LIVE.

But, who will be traded to Monday nights for him?

The week before Survivor Series, it was reported by the Inquisitr that Daniel Bryan confirmed both Sami Zayn and Cesaro said they wanted a trade to SmackDown LIVE. Since then, Zayn ended up getting a match at the pay-per-view which gave him the chance to win the Intercontinental Title from The Miz and bring it to Raw.

Zayn ended up losing that match, and it led to Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon saying that he needed to pay for not succeeding. That was when he was fed to Braun Strowman, who absolutely destroyed him and left him laid out in the ring.

The next week, Mick Foley had a “serious conversation” with Zayn that saw the popular superstar and things got quite heated. Zayn demanded another match with Strowman, but Foley simply said he wouldn’t do it and that he was looking out for his best interest by not booking the fight.

Early on Monday, a tweet was sent out by Sami Zayn that was a clear and full-blown warning to Raw General Manager Mick Foley.

On Monday Night Raw, Braun Strowman had a match with Curtis Axel which ended up being nothing more than a squash. After Strowman won the match, he was asked about Zayn’s tweet saying he wanted a match, but the giant didn’t really care.

Backstage, as recapped by the official website of WWE, Sami Zayn came face-to-face with Mick Foley and told him he wanted his rematch. Foley stayed set in his ways and would not give on his stance that there would not be another match between Zayn and Strowman.

It was then that Sami Zayn demanded to be traded from Monday Night Raw to SmackDown LIVE. Foley agreed to his demand and said he would call SD Live General Manager Daniel Bryan right away about putting that together.

This is surely going to make Daniel Bryan happy as he has been wanting to make a trade for Sami Zayn for more than a month now. By Foley saying that he was going to make the call, it seems as if Zayn is pretty much heading to SmackDown LIVE, but who is going to Monday nights?

No word has been given at this time as to who will be traded, but it has indeed been confirmed that Foley is looking to send Zayn to SmackDown. With Roadblock: End of the Line taking place this Sunday, it’s possible that the trade could happen before next Monday.

Update 11:30 p.m.: Sami Zayn defeated Jinder Mahal later in the night on Raw as recapped by the official site of WWE. After the match, Foley came out and said that Zayn was being traded for an equal talent…Eva Marie. That angered Zayn who once again demanded his match and Foley gave him Strowman at Roadblock on Sunday.

The match has a stipulation, though, and Zayn must “survive” 10 minutes.

Sami Zayn has grown increasingly frustrated with his role on Monday Night Raw, and he simply feels as if there are more opportunities for him on SmackDown LIVE. Daniel Bryan has been campaigning to get Zayn on Tuesday nights, and it seems as if it is finally going to happen. The interesting thing will be if WWE goes through with this trade and who Mick Foley will get in return for trading away Zayn. At that point, Braun Strowman may have someone new fed to him.
