Sami Zayn isn’t making the trip to Jeddah with most of the WWE roster this week. Zayn, who is a Canadian of Syrian descent, reportedly won’t work June 7’s Super ShowDown or any of the company’s pay-per-view (PPV) events in Saudi Arabia due to tension between the hosts and Syria.
So what’s a guy to do with a free weekend?
Intensified attacks in NW Syria are targeting civilians & medical facilities.— Sami Zayn (@SamiZayn) June 5, 2019
I will once again be partnering with @sams_usa to launch a mobile clinic in Syria to bring medical aid to those in desperate need.
Our fundraiser will be launched Friday, June 7, 2pm EDT.

The specific start time of Zayn’s fundraiser has raised some eyebrows, seeing as it’s at the same time as the main Super ShowDown card starts. There’s probably a bit of a message there. But the important thing is the mission, which is just Sami’s latest attempt to help with humanitarian efforts in war-torn Syria.
If wrestling fans want to read anything into that? It’s still for a good cause.
