WEE : Sami Zayn: “It was very difficult to ask Vince McMahon for time out”

Was Sami Zayn brave? Yes. Did you make the best decision? We’ll see. As SÚPER LUCHAS readers will recall, in March of last year, Sami Zayn was WWE Intercontinental Champion. But an unexpected pandemic due to a new coronavirus arrived … and everything changed.

► Will Sami Zayn return to the place where he was pre-pandemic?

One of those changes that WWE fans saw was that WWE Intercontinental Champion stopped appearing on SmackDown. Confusion reigned, but it quickly became known from sources such as Dave Meltzer, the fact that Zayn had told company managers that I was not going to work while in a pandemic.

Sami Zayn’s fear of the coronavirus caused people like Kevin Owens to be encouraged to ask Vince McMahon improvements and greater protocols to combat covid-19. And it also caused the Superstars to be told that whoever did not want to work, I might as well not go to the shows.

Months after all this, the Canadian returned to WWE and now you have talked about how difficult it was to announce your decision to your boss. This he recently told Sportskeeda:

“Now, we know a lot more about covid-19, we know a lot more about the pandemic and all that. But at that time, in March, there was a lot of uncertainty. We didn’t really know what the deal was, and I had some family circumstances where, at the time, it made sense not to go to work.

«The fighters are already programmed not to say no. You give me a task and I’m going to hit a home run, we are that kind of people… there is a fighter’s own pride in that. So at any moment, opting out of something is hard enough, and then, on top of that, if it is to choose not to participate in the largest imaginable stage.

“I mean, if you already had trouble turning down freelance shows where I was only making $ 200, much less was she going to tell Vince McMahon that she wasn’t going to work. It was extremely, extremely difficult for many reasons”.
