It was previously reported that WWE Champion AJ Styles will take on Sami Zayn in a non-title match on this coming Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, which is the first SmackDown of 2018. Sami Zayn spoke about the match and how he plans to make up for his lackluster 2017, which he thanked Shane McMahon for.
“It is so fitting that the first main event of SmackDown Live of 2018 is Sami Zayn vs. AJ Styles,” Zayn said. “And it is fitting because it will set the tone for 2018, I will be making up for the lackluster 2017 that I had, when I joined SmackDown Live, thanks to you, Shane McMahon. And fine, you want to make it a non-title match, I know Shane, I know, the last thing you want to see is Sami Zayn as WWE World Champion, but guess what? I will beat AJ Styles and sooner, rather than later – whether you like it or not – I will be WWE World Champion.”
Below is what Sami Zayn had to say about his upcoming match against WWE Champion AJ Styles:
