The absence of Sami Zayn from WWE has been a hot topic of discussion among wrestling fans and reports suggest that it has caused ripples within WWE as well.
So far the company had not provided any official reason for the absence of the former Champion but they are now claiming that he is out with an injury.
The promotion had vacated the Intercontinental Championship last week but they hadn’t given any reason for the same and instead, they just claimed that Zayn was unable to defend the title.
However, the company posted a preview of the announced IC title tournament this week in which they claimed that the former champion is out with an injury.
For those who don’t know, Sami Zayn was booked for WWE tapings after WrestleMania but he decided to pull out of the shows over coronavirus concerns.
His decision hasn’t sat well with the WWE officials and reports claim that the former NXT star’s call has caused a ‘lot of unhappiness’ within the company.
The officials have since made the decision to strip Sami Zayn of the Intercontinental Championship and announced a tournament for the crowning of a new champion.
