Sami Zayn followed in the footsteps of his friend Kevin Owens by choosing to stick with WWE. Zayn recently signed a new contract to stay at home. The pair both decided that WWE was the right place for them after months of speculation that they could be AEW-bound.
Sami Zayn was quiet about his new deal. There was not a lot of talk about anything going on. Suddenly, news broke that he had signed. The shock of the reports was softened as many believed that if Owens stayed, so would Zayn.
The Canadian superstar finally opened up about the deal with Patrick Laprade on “les Anti-Pods de la Lutte.” Zayn said he was happy to stay. Sami doesn’t understand why people are surprised by the decision. Laprade shared a translation of the French language interview with PW Insider.
“Yes, it’s true. Honestly, I don’t know how people on the internet find this kind of information, but yes, it’s true, I just signed for a few years and I’m really happy. My contract was almost over, they were interested in me staying, I wanted to stay, so it was no more complicated than that. It’s not the first time I’ve said it, but I’m really happy with my role with the company in recent years, especially the last year, year and a half.
I’m doing the best job of my career, especially in terms of my character. I don’t know why people were really surprised. They have an idea in their heads that everyone in WWE is unhappy being there, unhappy with their role, that they want more or feel oppressed, or I don’t know what. For me, I’m really happy with my role and I can’t wait to see what I’m going to be able to do in the next few years.”
Sami Zayn will be sticking with WWE for the next few years. It sounds like the former El Generico is thrilled with his spot in the company. Now Sami will turn his attention to his most recent adversary, Johnny Knoxville, and the WWE Royal Rumble.
