WWE Smackdown-Sami Zayn’s WWE contract: Former Intercontinental Champion & WWE Smackdown Superstar Sami Zayn’s WWE contract is reportedly expected to expire before this year ends. According to the Wrestling Observed News, Sami Zayn’s WWE contract is up “later this year,” though exact dates are not yet out.
“Rumors are already flying about who is next with Rami Sebei (Sami Zayn), whose contract expires later this year, and Kevin Steen.”- This news joins the trend of contracts running out likely due to WWE resurrecting too many deals before the pandemic.
WWE Smackdown Sami Zayn’s WWE Contract
Sami Zayn has been under WWE contract since 2013. He was a successful draw on the independent circuit, and his meteoric performance led him to get a lucrative deal with WWE. Just recently it got revealed that Sami’s long-time friend Kevin Owens’ contract will expire in January 2022, almost a year before the original date.
It seems like once Owens’ WWE contract is over, he may strike a deal with WWE’s rival company AEW. Kevin Owens has teased joining All Elite Wrestling by tweeting out the coordinates of Mount Rushmore last week, however, he deleted the tweet later.
WWE Smackdown: Will Sami Zayn also move to AEW once his contract is up
Kevin Owens has given all the signs that he might move to AEW once his contract is up in January 2022. Sami Zayn could be another name who might follow the suit and join the likes of former WWE stars CM Punk, Ruby Soho, Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan), and Adam Cole, who made the AEW debut recently.
WWE, however, can’t keep losing their prodigy every now & then to AEW. The rival promotion already beat Monday Night Raw in ratings last week, and Vince McMahon should not lose more of its talented superstars at the hands of AEW. Let’s see if WWE manages to hold back Kevin Owens & Sami Zami once their WWE contracts are up.
