Due to the tension between Saudi and Syria, the country of Zayn’s parents, he never went to Saudi Arabia for any previous PLEs. The fanbase in the country welcomed him with open arms and Zayn was excited too. Two special people in his life were also excited to see him perform in his homeland’s neighboring country.

It was quite a good experience for Zayn to go to Saudi Arabia this year. He had a second hometown moment this year and also he visited the great holy mosque of Mecca.

Sami Zayn expresses his feelings about visiting Mecca

Ahead of the Night of Champions match and conference, Zayn had some private time in Saudi Arabia. He is a Muslim and hence he completed an Umrah–a pilgrimage to Mecca before going to the event. He wrote a message regarding the same.

The 38-year-old tweeted, “Being a pro wrestler and being with WWE has taken me to places I never dreamed I’d get to see and do things I never thought I’d get to do. It has provided me a life filled with incredible experiences that I will cherish forever. This one is at the top of the list. الحمدلله”
