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.

Despite that, there are still many Sami Zayn wants to face inside the squared circle in a dream match and it seems one of them is a true WWE legend.

While speaking to WWE’s The Bump, Sami Zayn revealed that he really wants to have a dream match against Rey Mysterio, who is the ‘true GOAT.’


“I know that ‘G.O.A.T.’ term is thrown quite loosely these days, but he truly is. For what he is, as far as a cruiserweight, he’s so much more than that. But if we want to pigeonhole him, and call him a cruiserweight, bar none the best of all time. We never really got to mix it up. You said we mixed it up on RAW about a year ago, but it was only like two minutes or something like that. Yeah, he caught me. He caught me quick. I think it was in a Gauntlet match. My mind is a little hazy at the moment. But he caught me with a quick one.”

We will have to wait and see how Sami Zayn will be booked now 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.
