Sami Zayn reveals why he re-signed with WWE

Last updated

WWE SmackDown Superstar Sami Zayn recently revealed why he chose to re-sign with WWE instead of looking at free agency and potentially AEW.

Speaking on the Out Of Character podcast, the former WWE Intercontinental Champion revealed why he decided to stay where he is.

Zayn noted that it was being able to add his own creative input to his on-screen segments that made him decide to stay with the company.

“So yeah, for sure, having even a little bit of creative input. I think that’s really what’s taken my appreciation and my enjoyment of being here in WWE to another level” Zayn revealed.

“I’ll say, ’˜hey, I really wish we could kind of do this’ and then some version of that happens, and I’m thrilled. I’m over the moon. What more could you ask for? That’s it. To just feel like you have a voice and you’re being heard, and when you actually go out there and do it. You feel respected and valued” Zayn added.

“That’s really what kept me here. There are other factors for sure, but that was really it. It wasn’t ’“ oh all of a sudden, my contract’s coming up and it’s time to negotiation and [they’re like] ’˜Hey we really like you’, ’˜Well where have you been the last two years?’

“No, the last two years they’ve shown me that they value me. So, when they told me they want me to stay, I believe them. So I stayed” Sami Zayn concluded.
