– As noted, a new heel alliance formed on last night’s WWE SmackDown between Sami Zayn and WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura. There’s no word yet on where they are headed with the new team, but they took out The Miz during a MizTV segment last night. Zayn took to Twitter after the show and commented on the bond between he and Nakamura.
“A bond that will never die. Until the end of time,” Zayn wrote.
Nakamura also tweeted a photo from the segment and wrote, “We express something in poetry or fight.”
