Welcome to a Superstar ShakeUp edition of A Moment Of Bliss.

Bliss says it’s great to see Zayn back on Raw. Zayn has been in the city all week. He has seen his friends and family.

He walked around his neighborhood. He got himself some fresh bagels. He loves this city. The city is great, but it’s the people he can’t stand.

He doesn’t really want to be here tonight or be on Moment Of Bliss. How Rude? Zayn would’ve loved getting this response nine months ago, but now they make him sick.

What the crowd is chanting right now is making him sicker. You project your unaddressed issues and project them onto him. Zayn’s not going for it. Everyone should be ashamed of themselves. These are not fans because they’re too busy playing critic and king maker. Does Zayn have a problem with people criticizing him because he thinks he’s perfect?
