Sami Zayn might be an ‘Honorary Uce’ but he wants to step out on his own and become the new host of The Great British Bake Off.
Known as The Great British Baking Show in the US and Canada, the British show is looking for a new presenter after Matt Lucas – who once played an avid Dr Who fan in Community in addition to a host of other roles – announced he was stepping down from the show after three seasons.
Sami Zayn is a big fan of the show and wanted to know where he should send his resume as he reacted to the news on social media.

Zayn’s haul of three Intercontinental Titles in WWE may not make him the obvious choice to co-host a British baking competition alongside Noel Fielding but if he got the role, he’d be sure to bring his own brand of “ucey” to the job.
Sadly for Zayn, there is a list of favourites for the role with English comedian and presenter Joe Lycett leading the charge according to the bookmakers. Former Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain is the second favourite and would bring a wealth of baking experience to the job. Third on the list is YouTube favourite and chicken shop regular Amelia Dimoldenberg with experienced host Ellie Taylor next and comedian Jayde Adams fifth favourite for the role.
But none of those five has the approval of The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, so the show might be wise to give Sami Zayn the job or else Reigns might wreck every cake and leave.
