Last year was a strange one for Sami Zayn. The SmackDown star began the year by winning the Intercontinental Championship at Elimination Chamber and ended it touting himself as a conspiracy victim.
Zayn recently spoke to Fox Sports where he said he believes he is currently doing his best work. Here is the full quote:
“I feel like this is definitely me at my best right now. In that time, where I was off because of the beginning of the pandemic and not really having any certainty of what was coming next, I was off for a couple of months, and to be honest with you – and I’ve said this in other interviews – when I’m away from wrestling, I’m pretty away from wrestling, you know? I tend to compartmentalize it.
When I’m in it, I’m in it 100% and when I’m out, I don’t want to say I’m out 100%, but pretty close, you know? Of course, the bug bites me a little bit, every now and again, and I get flowing with some creative ideas and, “Oh, man. I can’t wait to do this and do that. But, for the most part, I didn’t necessarily think of what I would do differently when I came back.”
Sami Zayn is currently set to compete in Sunday’s Elimination Chamber match. The winner will receive a shot at Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship later in the night.
