– Above is Sami Zayn talking to Dasha Fuentes after he teamed with Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles to defeat WWE United States Champion Kevin Owens, Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler in the main event of last night’s SmackDown. Sami says the win was a big one. Sami says he’s had a lot of come-from-behind victories in his career but that was one of the biggest ever.
Sami says no one expected him to come back and win after the beating he took on SmackDown – the same way no one expects him to win the Money In the Bank Ladder Match on Sunday. Sami says the “Underdog of the Underground” label has been put on him and he sometimes wishes it wasn’t. On the other hand, he’s glad he does have the label because people underestimate him and the win on SmackDown is what happens when people underestimate him. Sami says people can go ahead and count him out but they shouldn’t be surprised when he wins.
