Sami Zayn Staying With WWE

The conspiracy continues!

Sami Zayn Staying With WWE

Sami Zayn is said to have inked a new contract with WWE that will keep him with the company for the next few years. 

The former Intercontinental Champion is said to have extended his contract, which was set to expire at the end of 2021. He is currently involved in an on-screen feud with Jackass star Johnny Knoxville. 

Sami has re-signed and is 'tied down for several more years,' according to Fightful Select.

Zayn is claimed to have kept the talks 'secret,' but a source told the newspaper that WWE 'made it plain they wanted to keep his services.' 

After months of conjecture about his next move, he appears to have put pen to paper around the same time as his real-life closest friend Kevin Owens, who also pledged his future to the organisation.

Whilst on Pat Laprade’s Les Anti-Pods De La Lutte podcast, Sami said at the time: ‘I’ll just say that my contract still ends on January 31, but not 2022. I will still be in WWE for several years.

‘The decision was pretty easy because it was the best thing for my family, really. When it comes to that, it’s always a pretty easy decision to take. WWE has been my home for seven years now, so I have a sense of belonging.

‘Basically, I spent the majority of my career here. When you look at all the wrestling companies I’ve wrestled for, in WWE, that’s where I’ve been the longest. That’s where I need to be for the next few years. That’s how I felt and that’s the decision I made.’
