Sami Zayn has established himself as one of the mainstays of Friday Night Smackdown after changing his gimmick to a conspiracy theorist. Zayn continues to get props for his terrific in-ring skills and work rate. 

Sami Zayn followed in the footsteps of his friend Kevin Owens as he decided to stay with WWE instead of going to AEW.  Zayn recently signed a new contract to stay at home.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Sami Zayn never had any plans of going to AEW unlike Kevin Owens, who teased teaming up with The Young Bucks multiple times on social media.

”Regarding Zayn’s signing, the actual time line is that he agreed to terms was when they started pushing him with the Battle Royal win, and working on TV with Lesnar and Reigns, but the actual signing of the contract took place at the start of the year. Both he and Owens are believed to be signed through early 2025. Unlike with Owens, where AEW was at least teased by him and the Young Bucks on social media at one point, he made the call to stay because it was the right thing for his family and got the great offer,” 

We will have to wait and see how Sami Zayn will be booked in the coming months as he is set to compete in the Men’s Royal Rumble match this year, where he has a bone to pick with Johnny Knoxville.
