Sami Zayn comments on potentially winning the WWE Championship.
Zayn is a former three-time WWE Intercontinental Champion and NXT Champion, but despite his lack of gold, Zayn is one of the most revered performers in wrestling, showing a range of skills in the ring and on the microphone.
He's currently involved in the Bloodline storyline, which has received acclaim from critics, peers, and fans. Thought Zayn is an Honorary Uce and serves the reigning Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Zayn knows his performances have landed him close to potentially winning the title.
"When you get this close and you're in the in the periphery of the WWE title, it makes you think, well, I'm already here, maybe winning it's not totally unrealistic," Zayn told The Detroit News. "That would for sure be like a cherry on top of everything else. If it happens, awesome. If it doesn't happen, it still would have all been awesome. I mean really, since I can't even tell you how early into my career, probably three years in, I remember thinking, 'well, this is it, it can't get better than this.' And then somehow each year, it just kept getting bigger and bigger," Zayn says. "You would think I would learn at this point to stop saying it, but I am also content with everything I've done. I don't want to be the type of person who feels like, oh, there's a void unless I get this next thing, and if I don't accomplish this, I'm a failure or my career was a failure. Whatever happens, I'm good. It could end tomorrow, and knock on wood, I really hope it doesn't, but I would feel very complete and very satisfied with everything I've ever done. At this point, everything's gravy."
Zayn battled Kevin Owens in the main event of the January 13 episode of WWE SmackDown, and looked taken aback when The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) and Solo Sikoa interfered, costing him the match and potentially the victory.
