This week's WWE Backstage revealed that Sami Zayn would be stripped of the Intercontinental Championship. WWE will hold a tournament starting on this week's Smackdown to crown a new champion.
As previously reported, Zayn has not appeared on WWE TV apparently due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. Zayn was still not pleased with the decision, issuing his own statement on Twitter.
The WWE on Fox Twitter account posted a tweet asking fans who they think should be the new Intercontinental Champion. They tweeted, "[T]he new Intercontinental Champion should be."
The post was left blank to encourage fans to give their picks. However, Zayn had his own comments to the tweet writing, "[A]shamed of themselves."
The bracket for the tournament to crown a new Intercontinental Champion has not been announced so far. Stay tuned to Wrestling Inc. for any updates on the tournament.
