Sami Zayn returns, and he brought his Intercontinental championship with him


Sami Zayn has been away from WWE for a number of months, as he chose not to work during the coronavirus pandemic. When he left, he was still holding the Intercontinental championship he won just before WrestleMania 36.

He was stripped of the title and it eventually made its way to Jeff Hardy, who is currently holding it after successfully defending it against Shinsuke Nakamura on Friday Night SmackDown this week after an open challenge. It was just after this that Zayn made his surprise return.

In the span of just two shows, the blue brand got both Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn back on television. Things are looking up.
