Sami Zayn Takes A Shot At WWE Intercontinental Tournament Participants

WWE superstar Sami Zayn took to Twitter to comment on the entrants participating in the 8-man tournament to crown a new Intercontinental champion. Zayn was stripped of the title after being absent from television due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which Zayn told WWE officials he didn't wish to work tapings because of.

Zayn writes, "I am the Intercontinental Champion. Period. With the exception of Shinsuke, these men have no self-respect, and it says a lot about them that they were willing to participate in this tournament to begin with. Disappointed in all of them.

The tournament began on last night's episode of SmackDown, with Daniel Bryan defeating Drew Gulak, and Elias upsetting King Corbin. Zayn's ally Shinsuke Nakamura will meet AJ Styles on next week's show.
