Sami Zayn

– WWE NXT Superstar Sami Zayn did a meet & greet before tonight’s EVOLVE 49 iPPV in New York City. The iPPV actually started late to accommodate the meet & greet. After the show went off the air and the main event, which saw WWE NXT prospect Johnny Gargano defeat Ethan Page in an “I Quit” match, Sami came out and appeared for the live crowd.

Sami thanked the EVOLVE fans for having him, saying he missed “all this.” Sami thanked the fans for supporting EVOLVE and said this is the beginning of something big for EVOLVE. He said this is only going to get bigger and better.

Sami praised Gargano, which got a “NXT” chant, and said he’s the one to carry the EVOLVE brand now, calling him “the man.” Sami said there’s never been a more important time for Gargano to step up in EVOLVE than right now. Gargano wrapped Sami in streamers that had been thrown into the ring and Sami thanked fans again before his NXT music hit and he left.
