Sami Zayn thrashed WWE over new advertisement

WWE recently released the Friday Night SmackDown season premier advertisement. Almost every Superstar on the SmackDown roster features in the segment except for Zayn.

Due to this, the Superstar called out WWE. He claimed that making profits and entertaining audience is the company’s secondary goal. The primary goal of the company was to humiliate Zayn at every chance.

Even the audience was confused about why he was not a part of the advertisement.

Zayn has been performing brilliantly ever since his return to WWE after taking a break because of COVID-19. Regardless of whatever he may have said in the past about the company, he did deserve to be in the video.

Hell in a Cell prediction

Coming to Hell in a Cell, Zayn will have to watch out for who will be the challenger for the Intercontinental Championship. One of the Superstars who might challenge him is Big E.

Big E got drafted to SmackDown while the members of The New Day went to Raw. As a result, this might be Big E’s chance to prove himself in a singles run by challenging Zayn for the Intercontinental Championship.
