Sami Zayn On WWE Clash At The Castle: The Ingredients Are Right For Something Pretty Special

Sami Zayn looks forward to competing in Glasgow at WWE Clash at the Castle.

In recent months, WWE has increasingly held premium live events outside of the United States. Elimination Chamber emanated from Australia, and the company held WWE Backlash in France. Backlash sparked plenty of buzz with its electric crowd, and WWE Clash at the Castle is expected to follow in its footsteps. At the premium live event, Sami Zayn is set to defend his WWE Intercontinental Championship against Chad Gable.

Speaking with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp, Sami Zayn discussed the upcoming match.

"I remember watching Clash at the Castle (in 2022), granted that was in Wales, but I wasn’t on that event and I did have a little bit of FOMO just missing out on that. It’ll be good to go and perform in front of that kind of audience. With Backlash, even last year in Puerto Rico and this year in France, the Saudi events, the events in Montreal and Australia, all these international PLEs that have become a bit more commonplace, you’re seeing the excitement of the fans really pore through your television or computer screen. It’s infectious and adds such a dimension to that matches, the product, and everything else. It’s very exciting. I’ve gotten to wrestle Chad Gable many times and I think our batting average is pretty good. I’m excited, especially with the story with Otis and Alpha Academy, it gives it another dimension and another layer. When you add that to a match that is given a little time, because these PLEs have less matches now so each match as time to breath, all of the ingredients are right for something pretty special," Zayn said.
