Sami Zayn has been stripped of his Intercontinental Championship and a tournament will start on SmackDown for the vacated title.
Sami Zayn was forced to vacate his WWE Intercontinental title. Zayn, who had won the title in March this year, last appeared in the ring at WrestleMania 36. He defended his title against Daniel Bryan at the grandest stage of them all. His reign lasted 65 days.
With Zayn leaving the company, a tournament will start on SmackDown for the vacated title.
WWE confirmed the development and said that a new champion will be announce on Friday night SmackDown.
However, the development has gone down well with a section of fans who pointed out that the company didn’t do the same with Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin, whose division is in the process of crowning an Interim Champion.
Fans voice their concern-
.@SamiZayn is one of the best wrestlers in the WWE. He is one of the best human beings in pro wrestling. He cares about the world. I’m genuinely angry that the company has stripped him of the IC Championship.
Make the jump to AEW, Sami. You’ll be more appreciated. I support you.
