Sami Zayn Says His WWE TV Absence Is Due To ‘Legal Reasons’, More


WWE Superstar Sami Zayn appeared on today’s episode of WWE’s “The Bump” and commented on why he’s been absent from WWE lately. He claimed the reason he hasn’t been featured is due to “legal reasons”, which is obviously kayfabe. You can check out some highlights from the show below:

On his WWE absence: “Uh, there are certain legal reasons why I can’t get too into it. But anybody who’s followed the last year can connect the dots [during] the last year of my career. I have to be very delicate with my choice of words for legal reasons, but certain – let’s say plots – perhaps against me. Again, I’m just tiptoeing here. I shouldn’t even be talking about it. You will find out in due time what I’ve been up to. I was hard at work. But I wasn’t really invited to WWE television for SmackDown, which is a whole other thing that I won’t get into it. But I was involved with some legal stuff that I’m not allowed to talk about at the moment. But you’ll find out in due time.”

On Rey Mysterio: “I know that ‘G.O.A.T.’ term is thrown quite loosely these days, but he truly is…for what he is, as far as a cruiserweight, he’s so much more than that. But if we want to pigeonhole him, and call him a cruiserweight, bar none the best of all time. We never really got to mix it up. You [Matt Camp] said we mixed it up on RAW about a year ago, but it was only like two minutes or something like that. Yeah, he caught me. He caught me quick. I think it was in a Gauntlet match. My mind is a little hazy at the moment. But he caught me with a quick one.”

On wanting a match with Mysterio: “But we’ve never had a good 10,15,20-minutes to really sink our teeth into a proper battle. A 100 percent, being on the same show as Rey Mysterio, that is one of my dream matches. Probably the last dream match I really have that I’ve never done that I could do as a single [competitor] with Rey. So, I’d love to mix it up in there properly and really test where he’s at, at his point in his career, versus test where I’m at in my career because I think I’m actually at the top of my game right now if I’m being honest.”
