Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn made his return to Friday Night SmackDown.
After Jeff Hardy defeated Shinsuke Nakamura, Hardy walked back up the stage area and Zayn’s music began to play.
Zayn confronted Styles and then hit him with a kick to the face. As you will recall, Zayn relinquished the title several months ago and has said on social media that he never lost the title. He has been dropping hints on Twitter about returning to reclaim the title he never lost.
As you can see below, Zayn walked out with his own version of the IC title.
