Last night’s post-WrestleMania 35 edition of WWE RAW, Sami Zayn make his return to the ring. He lost to new WWE Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.
After losing, Sami cut a heel promo on the crowd. “I can honestly say, from the bottom of my heart, I did not miss this… and I did NOT miss any of YOU,” he said.
“It tuns out WWE is a super toxic environment. It’s not because of the McMahons. And it ain’t because of the other WWE Superstars,” he continued. “It’s because of this audience, and your ugliness!”
This was Sami’s first match since June 2018 as he was forced to take time off to undergo double shoulder surgery to repair both of his torn rotator cuffs. Sami’s last match came against then-Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley at Money In the Bank 2018, and his return match was against the current Intercontinental Champion.
