What does Sami Zayn's future hold?
While it's now unclear when Sami Zayn's WWE contract expires, the report that he is signed through the fall opens up several possibilities for his short-term future.
The questions regarding Zayn's contract stemmed from an interview with TVA Sports, in which the WWE SmackDown star suggested that his contract could potentially be up this fall. But fans now know this isn't the case.
Many fans were hoping to see Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens join All Elite Wrestling together in 2022. While that's still a possibility at some point, Zayns will be staying with WWE for the immediate future. With that in mind, he could remain a prominent star on WWE programming.
