Sami Zayn hasn’t been around since the coronavirus pandemic started. He was WWE Intercontinental Champion at the time of his departure, and the company stripped him of his title. Now that Jeff Hardy is the champion, Zayn wants his title back.
Following Jeff Hardy successfully defending the IC Title against Shinsuke Nakamura in an open challenge, Hardy was trying to exit the ThunderDome. Then Sami Zayn’s music hit and he came back.
Zayn made it very clear that he is after that IC Title once again. He had his own title and called Hardy a fraud. After a little physicality, Zayn made it clear that he thinks he is still IC Champion.
Sami Zayn is back, but it’s unclear how much he’ll be pushed. It will be interesting to see if he returns to his former spot on the card.
