The tale of Sami Zayn and The Bloodline, which has been going on for a while, is one of the most intriguing storylines in WWE. Sami’s attempt to join the infamous group months ago was the catalyst for the entire situation and pushed him over further after he betrayed Roman Reigns and his family, making him a highly popular babyface. But to the shock of many, Sami Zayn was loudly booed for a different reason recently.

Sami Zayn decided to play with the crowd in a clever manner recently. At a Road to WrestleMania live event in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, Sami Zayn deftly mocked WWE fans.

Sami Zayn participated in the main event of the show when he teamed up with Ricochet, and Braun Strowman, to take on Imperium in a 6-Man Tag Team Match. Following a decisive victory for the top babyfaces over the Gunther-led side, Zayn grabbed a mic to deliver a promo.

The former Honorary Uce praised the crowd in attendance for their unwavering support. Yet, when naming cities, Sami Zayn unintentionally spoke the city’s name wrong, which is Kitchener, and instead called it Kingston. You can check out his promo video here.

“I am not going to make this too long, it has been a long night. It has been an awesome night. We were in the back all night listening to you guys, you all brought the energy tonight. You guys were awesome, thank you very much. I know I am a Montreal guy, but whether it is Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, or right here tonight in Kingston, you guys are always brilliant.” 

WWE fans began to boo loudly as soon as they heard this because their favorite babyface had mispronounced the city’s name. In response, Sami Zayn clarified that he is aware that they are in Kitchener and explained why he wanted to “mess with fans” by reminding everyone of his recent history as a villain early last year.

“I knew we were in Kitchener. Hey, I was a bad guy not that long ago. Some habits don’t die easy, alright? I mess with you guys every now and then.”

Sami Zayn appeared to have deliberately teased audience members. If it really was a mistake, Zayn deserves praise for his outstanding comeback and quick thinking. We will have to wait and see what’s next for Zayn as WrestleMania 39 rapidly approaches.
