• SmackDown Wrestler Re-Signs With WWE
Last year, there were rumors that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are going to leave WWE once their contracts expired.
WWE then put them in World Title feuds and gave them more TV time, in hopes to get them to re-sign.
Owens re-signed with the company. Now, Zayn has re-signed as well.
Fightful Select is reporting that Zayn has officially re-signed with the company and won’t be leaving for the foreseeable future.
Zayn (age 37) is currently feuding with Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and Rick Boogs on SmackDown. He’s the #1 contender for the Intercontinental Title.
No word yet on when Zayn will get his Title match, but he’s going to be a part of the Men’s Royal Rumble match on January 29.
