Sami Zayn flexed his bilingual muscles ahead of the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match at Saturday’s WWE Night of Champions 2023 pay-per-view event.
WWE’s most recent event in Saudi Arabia saw Kevin Owens and Zayn retain their Tag Team gold against Solo Sikoa and Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Prior to the match, Zayn spoke in Arabic to the Saudi crowd which a fan translated on social media.
Pray to the prophet
We’re in an Arab country
We have an Arab champion
We’re gonna do this in Arabic
Introducing the prizefighter
(Now in English)
And Sami Zayn

The show marked the first time Zayn has been allowed to compete in Saudi Arabia, with the relationship between the country and Syria having improved as of late.
