Sami Zayn underwent a massive change in character over the past year, as he went from babyface to a conniving heel. His current gimmick sees him as a conspiracy theorist who thinks WWE is out to get him at every opportunity. Zayn is also hell-bent on finishing up his documentary and show the world that he never lied in the first place.
Sami Zayn’s feud with the likes of Kevin Owens over the years has drawn a lot of praise from fans and pro wrestlers alike. Zayn continues to hone his craft and is a highlight of WWE television.
On this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown Sami Zayn finally made his return to WWE television after more than a month. While speaking to Megan Morant backstage, Sami Zayn addressed his absence from WWE television. Zayn claimed that he isn’t allowed to talk about his absence.
It’s funny that now you suddenly have time for me. The last four weeks I haven’t been around; you could have reached out to me? But nobody did. I didn’t get a text, I didn’t get a call. Nobody even thought to ask, ‘where is Sami?’
“Where is one of the greatest performers of our time? Where is he these days? Nobody thought to ask. But now that I’m back, everyone is acting like they care. I’m not even allowed to talk about where I’ve been – but trust me, in due time, you’re going to find out where I was and what I was up to. And trust me, it’s going be juicy.”
We will have to wait and see how Sami Zayn will be booked know that he’s back to WWE television. Roman Reigns recently revealed that he wants more television time for Sami Zayn as it would be a good thing for Friday Night Smackdown in general. We hope that happens for Zayn.
