Sami Zayn recently commented on the current state of his career, as well as if he sees himself as a future WWE champion.
Sami Zayn is a seasoned veteran in the industry and quite decorated in his own right, being a former 3-time Intercontinental Champion, as well as a prominent NXT champion during the shows early days. This coming after his exceptional work on the independent scene.
Sami has found himself caught in the single hottest angle in the WWE right now with the Bloodline. He was inducted to the group as an “honorary uce” and has ran with the storyline, captivating audiences along the way. Giving Zayn reason to believe he may be involved in a match for the WWE championship in the future.
Speaking with The Detroit News, Zayn commented on this possibility.
When you get this close and you’re in the in the periphery of the WWE title, it makes you think, well, I’m already here, maybe winning it’s not totally unrealistic,” Said Zayn. “That would for sure be like a cherry on top of everything else. If it happens, awesome. If it doesn’t happen, it still would have all been awesome. I mean really, since I can’t even tell you how early into my career, probably three years in, I remember thinking, ‘well, this is it, it can’t get better than this.’ And then somehow each year, it just kept getting bigger and bigger,” Zayn says. “You would think I would learn at this point to stop saying it, but I am also content with everything I’ve done. I don’t want to be the type of person who feels like, oh, there’s a void unless I get this next thing, and if I don’t accomplish this, I’m a failure or my career was a failure. Whatever happens, I’m good. It could end tomorrow, and knock on wood, I really hope it doesn’t, but I would feel very complete and very satisfied with everything I’ve ever done. At this point, everything’s gravy.”– Sami Zayn
