Speaking with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp, Sami Zayn discussed the return of his theme song.

"I had reservations about it initially, but I think at the time it kind of made sense. There is a real affection towards it from fans. I wanted something new, but it made sense with it being a rebirth, especially being in Montreal. It kind of lined up. I was advocating at the time for something new or something kind of old, but it would have been new. All this to say, there have been times where I have tired of the song and where I felt it didn’t fit anymore, but fans do like it. It’s a unique theme song if nothing else. It definitely doesn’t sound like anyone else’s theme, so I’ll take it. It is uplifting and there is a competent to that with my character and it hits the mark in a lot of respects. I’m not going to complain about it," Zayn said.
