According to Fightful Select, WWE had originally intended for Sami Zayn to be a part of the opening segment on SmackDown this week. For those not in the know, The Bloodline kicked off the show this Friday as Roman Reigns addressed the tag team titles unification match that took place later that night. Zayn was not seen in that segment, but this was not the original plan.

Sami Zayn was listed as a part of the opening Smackdown segment, but didn’t appear.

Sami, meanwhile, squared off against Shinsuke Nakamura in the opening match of the show. The match ended when Nakamura hit Sami Zayn with a Kinshasa after the self-proclaimed locker room leader rushed to the ring to avoid a 10 count. Did you enjoy SmackDown this week?
