Hope everyone is doing okay.

They really did this to punish Sami for worrying about his health during a pandemic huh? Because I don’t remember Andrade getting stripped after he was suspended

WE WANT TABLES!@KayfabeGimmick

.@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.

I feel so bad for Sami Zayn.

The man literally gives his all for professional wrestling. Has such a short lived NXT Championship run, injuries in his WWE tenure and, the moment he gets the IC Championship, apparently quarantined and probably vacating.

I hate it here.
