Sami Zayn recently spoke with FOX Sports. Here are the highlights.
On his match against Shinsuke Nakamura at NXT TakeOver: Dallas:
“It was a pretty special match, and I think when we were going into it I knew it would be good, but… I don’t know if it didn’t really hit me how big it is that this is his first match, and it’s my last match. I don’t know, I feel like the stars just kind of aligned that night and created something that’s really special. And the way that I know it’s special is that it’s still talked about now. It’s been a year and a half or something and I still get messages about it almost daily. Something very special occurred that night, and it was really cool. And now to see Shinsuke’s success since then is really interesting. And I’ll get to finally cross paths with him again in the Money In The Bank match. It’s been interesting to watch his trajectory since that night.”
On the first-ever women’s Money In The Bank ladder match:
“Well it’s a pretty huge deal, if you think about it. Every time I think that we’ve kind of come as far as we’re going to go as far as the women’s revolution… it really has been a revolution, and it’s not something you would have seen 10 years ago, five years ago, 20 years ago, really ever. So it’s really, really cool to see, I’m as curious as any of our fans to see how it goes down.”
