WWE has announced that the Intercontinental Title as been vacated by Sami Zayn.
As announced on WWE Backstage, the Great Liberator cannot currently defend the belt, leading to this decision. Sami held the title for 66 days, after beating Braun Strowman at Elimination Chamber 2020. While he did have help from Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro – who have both been seen on TV in recent weeks – Sami has not made an appearance since Wrestlemania.
A tournament to crown a new champion will begin this Friday on SmackDown.
TWM will bring you more on these events as we get it.
