Sami Zayn Was “Thrilled” To Hear Vince McMahon Compliment Him

Sami Zayn is one of the true workhorses in WWE.

Sami Zayn has had an eventful 2022 so far. He has been entertaining in his role as the resident weasel of SmackDown. Earlier this year, he worked a program with Johnny Knoxville. This led to an anything goes match at Wrestlemania 38 that fans and peers alike loved, including Michael Cole and apparently, Vince McMahon.

The former WWE Intercontinental Champion recently sat down with talkSPORT for an interview and discussed his relationship with Vince:

“On a personal level of the relationship of Vince and I, I don’t know. But certainly I think my stock has gone up tremendously in his books in the past couple of years. And for sure, anytime you can carry something with an outside person it helps because to your point, he is invested in those. But I don’t know. It’s hard to get a read on that man, it really is [laughs].”

“But he’s been very kind. I remember when I was doing the stuff with Brock [Lesnar], I actually did something with him [Vince] on screen as well.”

“And I was thrilled to hear he was talking about it both to me and people in some meeting about how much he enjoyed it, being on-screen with me and the chemistry that we had. I took that as such a huge compliment.”

“Maybe I shouldn’t even be saying this [laughs]. I think he values me, he appreciates me and I feel good about that. I just feel very good aund bout everything, I really do.”
