Sami Zayn’s current persona in WWE sees him as a conspiracy theorist who thinks WWE is out to get him every step of the way. He also dresses for the part as he has a lot of unkempt hair and is not groomed at all.
As revealed long ago, Sami Zayn had a couple of very interesting things he took inspiration for to create his current look in the company. Zayn also engaged in programs with celebrities often, which included the likes of Logan Paul last year which led to a match against Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 37, where Logan Paul was at Zayn’s corner.
This year’s Royal Rumble featured Jackass star Johnny Knoxville as one of the participants in the Men’s match as he carried on his ongoing feud with Sami Zayn. Knoxville announced his entry into the match a few weeks before. This was done to promote the latest movie in the Jackass series.
He entered the Rumble at #9 and lasted just over a minute before Sami Zayn threw him out. During this week’s taping of Friday Night Smackdown, which will air next week, Sami Zayn defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to become the new Intercontinental Champion. This made him a three-time Intercontinental Champion as well. The former WWE Men’s Royal Rumble winner and the ‘King of Strong Style’ won the WWE Intercontinental Championship by pinning former champion Apollo Crews during the August 13th edition of WWE SmackDown after hitting the Kinshasa. Nakamura also held the championship from July 2019 to January 2020.
During a recent edition of WWE Smackdown former WWE manager – Dutch Mantell AKA Zeb Colter discussed the title switch and stated how he believes Zayn can make the championship interesting. Credit to SportsKeeda for the below.
“I think it’s a great thing they switched it. Sami will make it interesting again. I just hope Sami doesn’t lose all his money and they repo his car and then they got to come back and he’s where you know just pieces of clothing he picks up off-street.”
