Sami Zayn was recently interviewed by The Daily Mail, where he discussed several topics. Among them were whether he thinks he will win a world title in Triple H’s WWE, his recent WrestleMania appearances, and more.

Below are some highlights from the interview:

Zayn on if he thinks he will win the World Championship in Triple H’s WWE:

‘Here’s how I see it,’ he began, mentioning he was eager to answer the question properly. ‘I think Hunter sees me differently from how Vince saw me, especially as a good guy.

‘I think Vince saw me much more as a bad guy, for a number of reasons. He saw my irksome qualities that he thought lent itself to being an irksome character. Having said that, I think things were a lot more unpredictable because of the nature of Vince’s week to week, kind of approach, that sometimes the marble would just fall in the right hole, and now you’re champion, whereas with Hunter, I think it’s much more he has longer-term vision, and if you’re not part of that vision, then the chances of breaking into that vision are much, much slimmer.

Zayn on his recent WrestleMania appearances, and teaming with Kevin Owens:

‘I’m very, very, very proud. I almost feel like, because they saw so many of the matches, people kind of forgot how good those matches were. But if you go back and watch any match that we had with any combination of Judgement Day, we had people rocking and rolling in the main event of the third hour of Raw, and that’s always a hard thing to do, and we were doing that every single week, and I’m very, very proud of that.

‘I’ve had a pretty good track record at WrestleMania in general, even my first one, we had this ladder match that I was really proud of, the Daniel Bryan return match… I remember when we were doing that match, I couldn’t believe we had a match of that magnitude.
