Sami Zayn has climbed the ladder in WWE to become a major player. The former Intercontinental Champion has seen a meteoric rise after being a part of The Bloodline as an Honorary Uce. He ultimately betrayed Roman Reigns to turn babyface and eventually went on to face him at Elimination Chamber in a losing battle. At WrestleMania 39, Zayn teamed up with Kevin Owens to win the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship.
Despite being billed from Montreal, Canada, Sami Zayn has, for a long time, not been allowed into Saudi Arabia. This was primarily because he is of Syrian descent. The two countries do not share an amicable relationship and have, therefore, not allowed Zayn into the country. The current tag team champion is a Syrian Muslim and takes his heritage seriously.

In real life, Zayn’s parents are from Syria and settled in Quebec, Canada. They have now relocated to Homs, Syria. Zayn, who is a 21-year wrestling veteran, has been friends with fellow Canadian Kevin Owens for almost the entirety of his wrestling career. They have feuded several times during their Ring of Honor days and have also been tag team champions in several promotions, including WWE.
What is Sami Zayn’s charity?
Sami Zayn has been open about his support for his home country, Syria, which has been ravaged by civil war for several years. In June 2017, he extended his support to those affected by introducing the Sami for Syria fund. The fund works in association with the Syrian American Medical Society, which represents Syrian-American medical professionals in the United States.
Today is a special day. Happy to launch #SamiForSyria!

Zayn has been open about wanting to do something with regard to the civil war and has stated that the time for talking is over. The organization had reached its initial goal of $50,000 by mid-August. He also stated that his colleagues, such as Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, and Daniel Bryan, among others, have all chipped in to get the initiative off the ground.
Who is Sami Zayn married to?
Sami Zayn is married to Khadija Sebei and has a son. They tied the knot in 2018 after being together for four years. The pair usually keep their private lives out of the limelight. However, Khadija made a rare public appearance during her husband’s match against Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber.
