WWE Superstar Sami Zayn could leave the company by the end of the year as his current deal with WWE expires by the end of 2021.
A previous report had indicated that the former Intercontinental Champion's WWE deal was not going to expire this fall. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has stated that it won't be long before Zayn becomes a free agent.
"In talking about the recent news of Kevin Owens' WWE deal expiring at the end of January, Meltzer noted that Sami Zayn's deal expires later this year. He didn't provide a specific date."
A report from a few years ago had stated that Zayn had signed a three-year contract with WWE sometime in 2018.
