The latest rumors surrounding WWE’s upcoming event, Night of Champions, suggest a possible tag team title defense featuring Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens facing off against Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa. However, many are questioning the validity of these rumors given Zayn’s history with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Despite traveling there early in his WWE career, Zayn has not been involved in any shows in the country since due to tensions between the KSA and Syria, where Zayn’s family is from. Recently, tensions between Sami Zayn and the WWE have eased, paving the way for Zayn and his long-time friend and tag partner, Kevin Owens, to work at the premium live event in Jeddah on May 27th. This is a significant development for both wrestlers, particularly for Zayn who, being Muslim, was able to undertake an Umrah pilgrimage ahead of the show. This pilgrimage is a visit to the holy city of Mecca outside of the Hajj season, one of the five pillars of Islam that takes place during a specific ten-day period each year. The match-up against WWE’s biggest star and his up-and-coming cousin is just the icing on the cake for Zayn and Owens. WWE superstar Sami Zayn recently took to Twitter to announce that he had completed a pilgrimage to Mecca, a holy site in Islam. In his tweet, Zayn included a photo of himself in front of the Kaaba and used the Arabic phrase “alhamdulillah” which translates to “praise be to God” or “thank God.” Fans were quick to congratulate Zayn on his achievement, which occurred just a month after the annual pilgrimage known as Hajj. Zayn’s tweet has sparked conversation among fans about the intersection of religion and wrestling. Check out this article from prowrestlingwars.com to read more about Sami Zayn’s pilgrimage to Mecca.
