WWE has a lot of things going on, especially with the recent backstage shake-ups. There is a new Intercontinental Champion after AJ Styles captured the title. Now the former IC Champion is coming up in conversation once again.
Ringside News has learned that Sami Zayn’s name is coming up backstage once again. It appears that his hiatus could be coming to an end.
This is a surprise that came about when asking our source in the company about specific wording they’ve been using in a blue brand storyline. Jeff Hardy and Michael Cole were both very careful to say that the witness spotted a man with red hair and a red beard fleeing the scene of the crash that put Elias on the shelf.
We were told: “It could be Sami. His name has come up again.” This is somewhat shocking news because the last we heard he was out of the picture. It just goes to show how quickly things can change backstage in WWE.
This means the culprit who mowed over Elias in Jeff Hardy’s rental car might have been Sami Zayn. Sheamus denied it, and he just keeps insisting that Hardy is a junkie who needs a drug test.
Elias won’t be back for a while. He will need surgery which will like keep him out of action for over half a year.
