Sami Zayn: Huge rumour on Saudi Arabia status

Last updated

It was recently confirmed by WWE that Sami Zayn will be part of the Night of Champions event in Saudi Arabia, his first appearance in the country.

Due to political reasons and Sami’s background, he has been unable to appear at shows in the Kingdom, but that has now seemingly changed.

It was recently confirmed that a decade after the initial issues between Saudi Arabia & Syria, the two countries decided to resume diplomatic working relations.

According to a recent report/rumour from @BlackMaskofPW however, there have been plans ‘for months’ involving Sami and Kevin Owens working the event.

“Sami & Kevin have been scheduled to work the Saudi show for months so your theory doesn’t hold up. The Saudis wanted Sami on the show. That’s the reason. Nothing more, nothing less” the account claimed.

We do not know if that is genuinely the case at this time, but it is interesting to note that the officials in Saudi Arabia apparently have wanted Sami to appear for some time.
