World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Raw superstar Sami Zayn promised Filipino fans that his match against Kevin Owens at the at the Mall of Asia Arena on September 9 would be “incredible,” and “exciting.”
“So this is gonna be a very long story, and I think the fans will see when Kevin and I got to the ring so they could be excited. We guarantee that we’ll gonna have a great match,” Zayn said.
Zayn added that he’s excited to visit the Philippines as WWE brings his 13-year rivalry with Owens in the country.
“I’m just excited for me personally, because I’ve never been to the Philippines, and a lot of the guys from the show have never been to the Philippines. Every time we got to a new country, we’re twice motivated, we’re twice as hard and the fans are usually twice as good. It’s just exciting.”
Zayn said he still yearns for a dream match with Shawn Michaels, Eddie Guerrero, and Triple-H. Another surprising revelation is his desire to take on kung fu superstar Jackie Chan.
“I’d love to wrestle with Jackie Chan [but]I don’t know. Maybe it’s too late. When I was a kid and even when I got a little older, I was thinking that I’m Jackie Chan or being an incredible pro wrestler. He’s just so athletic. He’s so unconventional. He finds ways to make it incredibly interesting. I think that kind of mentality just transfers very well with pro wrestling.”
The WWE Manila event will also feature the following matches: Roma Reigns versus Seth Rollins, John Cena versus Big Show, Firm Balor versus Chris Jericho, Cesaro versus Sheamus, Golden Truth versus The Shining Stars, and Neville versus Bo Dallas with Curtis Axel.
In the tag team championship match, New Day will face Gallows and Anderson while Sasha Banks will collide against Charlotte in the women’s championship match.
