Yes, you read it correctly – Sami Zayn is going to work a WWE premium live event in Saudi Arabia this month. He previously wasn’t allowed to go due to his Syrian descent.
Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns returned on tonight’s SmackDown and told Knoxville, Tennessee to acknowledge him, and they did. The whole Bloodline is there with him.
Roman said every man in this ring main evented both nights of WrestleMania this year. Roman said when he’s not here, somebody else has to step up, and this time Solo Sikoa stepped up.
Reigns put over Solo for hanging with some of the best in the business in the ring and taking care of problems. Reigns then told Solo that Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn aren’t their problem anymore, but their brothers The Usos are a problem.
Roman said did The Usos think they’re not going to talk about their WrestleMania main event loss? Roman then got angry that they dedicated the rematch to him and lost, and they dedicated a tag team match to him when he’s the greatest singles champion of all time.
They could’ve dedicated the match to other legendary tag teams in their family, but they didn’t and they disrespected their family.
Roman told Jimmy & Jey Uso to apologize. Jimmy started laughing and Roman shoved him in the face, and asked if he’s going to do something. Jimmy was about to attack Roman, but Jey stopped him and apologized to The Tribal Chief.

Jey asked Roman to give them one more shot to bring back the Tag Team Championship to The Bloodline. Roman said the Tag Team Titles will come back to The Bloodline and told Paul Heyman to fill them in.
Heyman then said Owens & Zayn will lose the Tag Team Titles to Solo Sikoa & Roman Reigns at Night Of Champions.
Roman then said him & Solo will dedicate their Tag Team Title win to the greatest Tag Team ever – Afa & Sika, The Wild Samoans.
Since Saudi Arabia and Syria are reopening embassies to restore relations, Sami Zayn is now allowed to work the Night Of Champions premium live event.
The only reason Kevin Owens didn’t work Saudi Arabia events was because Sami wasn’t allowed. Now that Sami is allowed to go, Owens is going with him.
