Former WWE Superstar Jacques Rougeau has claimed that he was unaware of Zayn before his historic Elimination Chamber match. Rougeau who also hails from Canada like Zayn revealed this fact on Story Time with Dutch Mantell.
“I didn’t even know Sami Zayn before last week, before he got such an ovation when he came to work because, you know, I gotta put in context there that when I had my falling out with Vince [McMahon] 30 years ago, I just turned my TV off. You know, I just I never never watched one show, not one Dutch, not one, not 10 minutes of a show. [So, you never watched the Sami Zayn and the Roman Reigns arc?] No, no, I haven’t watched nothing of that,” said Rougeau.
Meanwhile, Zayn got united with his friend and wrestler Kevin Owens on the latest episode of WWE SmackDown on Friday. It’s likely that the duo will now together take on Roman Reigns and his group. Speculations are also high that Owens-Zayn might team up to fight against the Usos for the Tag Team title at WrestleMania 39.
WrestleMania 39 is scheduled to be a two-night extravaganza to be held in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2. The main event will see Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns lock horns with 2023 Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes.
