Throughout his illustrious career, Sami Zayn has shared the ring with some of the biggest names in the industry, in and out of WWE.
Taking to Twitter, the current WWE Tag Team Champion has expressed his interest in facing a non-WWE star in the form of Kota Ibushi. Zayn has previously shared the ring with Ibushi before signing with the Stamford-based promotion.
Ibushi, who recently finished up with New Japan Pro-Wrestling, is yet to sign a deal with a new company. Reacting to an old clip featuring the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Zayn expressed his interest in a potential rematch between the two.
“This man is a lunatic and a gift to pro wrestling, and I need to wrestle him once more before my career is done.”

Dutch Mantell believes Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens should’ve been on SmackDown alongside The Bloodline
Dutch Mantell believes Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens should’ve been drafted to SmackDown alongside the rest of The Bloodline.
Speaking on Story Time with Dutch Mantell, the veteran claimed that the reigning tag team champions would’ve been a better fit on the blue brand for storyline continuity.
“Well, I think Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens should have stayed at SmackDown,” Mantell stated. “They should keep their angle intact on SmackDown because it’s the same company, they can take it back and forth anyway, so keep their main competitors – to me, this is to me – I would keep them on the same show.”
