Sami Zayn addresses Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura break-up speculation
- The Artist Collective only just received their new name
- Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura helped Sami Zayn win the Intercontinental Championship
The SmackDown trio, known as The Artist Collective, defeated Braun Strowman in a 3-on-1 handicap match at Elimination Chamber, with Zayn picking up the pinfall over Strowman to win the Intercontinental Championship for the first time in his career.
Speaking on WWE show The Bump, Zayn was asked whether either of his two allies could attempt to take credit for the victory against Strowman and challenge him to a title match.
“I think it’s a very American way of thinking. The idea of doing something collective is so foreign to Americans especially, but why? It has to be about one person? Yes, I’m the Intercontinental Champion, but we’re a collective. We do things together and it just so happens that I’m the one holding the Championship now.”
