Sami Zayn | The COVID-19 pandemic has gripped the entire world since last year and that includes the world of professional wrestling. Several professional wrestlers tested positive for the virus and it remains a period of uncertainty.
Sami Zayn and his absence due to COVID-19
While speaking with Sportskeeda, former intercontinental champion Sami Zayn spoke about how he was affected by the pandemic. He talked about taking a break from the company after WrestleMania 36 and how it was a very difficult decision for him.
Zayn said the fighters are programmed not to say no and have a lot of pride. Zayn mentioned how difficult it was for him to tell Vince McMahon that Zayn couldn’t come to work.
“Now, we know a lot more about COVID-19, we know a lot more about the pandemic and everything. But at that time, in March, there was a lot of uncertainty. We really didn’t know what the deal was and I had some family circumstances that, at the time, it made sense not to go in. “
“The fighters are already programmed not to say no, you give me a task and I am going to do it, that kind of thinking… there is pride for the fighter in that. So at any moment, you choose not to participate in something, it’s hard enough, and then on top of it, on the biggest stage imaginable. “
“I mean, I would have trouble turning down $ 200 independent bookings, let alone telling Vince McMahon, I can’t go to work, it was extremely, extremely difficult for many reasons.”
Sami Zayn is scheduled to compete inside the Smackdown Elimination Chamber this Sunday. If Zayn wins, he will become Roman Reign’s number one contender for the WWE Universal Championship.
