• Backstage Heat On Sami Zayn, Wants To Leave WWE

Sami Zayn hasn’t been working WWE events due to the Coronavirus pandemic. His last appearance on WWE programming was at WrestleMania 36, where he defeated Daniel Bryan to retain the Intercontinental Championship. Zayn was stripped of the Title last week.

During ‘Oh, You Didn’t Know’, it was stated that the former Intercontinental Champion has been hard to work with for the backstage officials, and he himself may want his way out of WWE:

“I’ve been told he’s been difficult to deal with. He’s unhappy and is even speculation that he may want out.”

The Wrestling Observer also reported that Zayn has backstage heat on him due to his choice of not working during the pandemic:

“Even though nobody can say it publicly for obvious reasons, there is a lot of unhappiness that Zayn exercised the option that they gave everyone regarding not wrestling if you don’t want to right now.

I mean, the IC title doesn’t mean much and we’re long past the period of taking titles too seriously and they can do whatever they want. The tournament started on the 5/15 SmackDown show.”
