Sami Zayn's wife Khadijah recently spoke with WWE and shared her reaction to Zayn betraying Reigns at Royal Rumble 2023. Here's what she said:
"It was way past my bedtime and our son was asleep, so I usually watch the TV on, like, volume two or three. I was standing really close to the TV. And, I was just... oh man! When he hit Roman in the back, I was whisper-screaming so loud, because it was just the best moment. And the way the crowd reacted... oh man, I was crying, whisper-screaming, I was so happy. I was jumping up and down, as quiet as possible." [00:43-1:18]
