5 Reasons why Sami Zayn won the Intercontinental Championship at WWE Elimination Chamber 2020
- Sami Zayn won his first title in 5 years and his first singles title since joining the main roster! Here's why it happened!
#3. A babyface turn
Sami Zayn made his name in WWE as being a babyface. When he was in NXT, he was the biggest face in the brand and his story with Kevin Owens only added to it. That translated well at first when he came to RAW but it only took a year and a half before things changed on SmackDown.
During the Kevin Owens vs Shane McMahon Hell in a Cell match in 2017, Sami Zayn pulled Kevin Owens away from getting an elbow drop from the top of the cell, cementing his heel turn. It's been over two years since then and Zayn has spent the last few months being an obnoxious heel manager.
There's still less than a month left and if the right story is told, Sami Zayn could turn face again. All it takes is for Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura to turn on him and we can imagine that happening. Hopefully, it means a legitimate push for Sami Zayn and not one that will last for a month.Published 09 Mar 2020, 08:28 IST
