Red Bull's Snake Eyez is the best Zangief in the world and the best player in the United States, also the only player in the US to be in the top 10 worldwide. Due to the other top Zangiefs playing Birdie he's pretty much by default the best Zangief in SFV as well. He's won the first two WNFs for Street Fighter V and will likely win the next 30-40 in a row that he attends.
