Sami Zayn delivered a promo in Arabic prior to the main event of WWE Night of Champions and there is a translation of what he said.
The main event of WWE Night of Champions in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia saw Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens defend the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles against The Bloodline’s Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa.
Prior to the match, the “Wise Man” Paul Heyman took the microphone from ring announcer Paul Heyman and did a special introduction for Roman and Solo.
As a reply to Paul Heyman, Sami Zayn took the microphone and did his own introduction for the match. Since Zayn is a Syrian who knows how to speak Arabic, he decided to speak in Arabic to the Saudi Arabian crowd that speaks the same language as him.
With thanks to @naifsedge on Twitter, we have a translation of what Zayn said.
“Calm down. Calm down. Calm down. Pray to the prophet. We’re in an Arab country. We have an Arab champion. We’re gonna do this in Arabic. Introducing the prizefighter. (Now in English) Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.”
When the bell rang, the two teams would have a memorable match that included a lot of chaos, especially after the original referee was knocked down during the match.
The Usos made their way down to the ring, they were trying to help Reigns & Sikoa win, but Reigns wasn’t happy about it, especially after The Usos hit a double superkick on their brother Solo. After being berated by Reigns, Jimmy Uso superkicked The Tribal Chief twice and the crowd was cheering even though they were shocked by it.
Sami Zayn would end up getting the win for his team after he hit a Helluva Kick on Solo for the pinfall win. Zayn & Owens remain the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions while Roman Reigns suffered a rare loss even though it was Solo taking the pin.
