Sami Zayn Says People Assumed Why He Didn’t Go To Saudi Arabia

Sami Zayn says people assumed why he has not previously attended WWE events in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Sami Zayn partook in his first PLE in Saudi Arabia last weekend, defending the WWE Undisputed Tag Titles alongside Kevin Owens. The pair would defeat Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa after Jimmy Uso landed several superkicks to the Tribal Chief’s jaw.

Speaking on WWE After The Bell, Zayn commented on speculation as to why he never made the trip previously.

“It was a really heavy trip. A lot went into it, to be honest. The fact that I haven’t been there in a few years, and that there has been so much speculation as to why I’m not going and the political reasoning and this and that. I won’t get into all of it, but I will tell you that 99.9% of what you’ve read online about this subject is completely fabricated, completely just…people assuming things and then running with those assumptions and adding onto them. It’s wild,” he said. “Anytime they can’t get concrete answers, that’s kind of what tends to happen. It’s human nature, almost.”

“The actual event itself, and the reception from the audience, it’s kind of what I’ve been waiting for, for a while, in a way. I would have been the natural representative for those shows, and I just wasn’t. It was good to finally be put in that position,”

We will have to wait and see what is next for Sami as it appears his story with The Bloodline has come to an end.
