Audio of Sami Zayn ranting at members of the WWE production crew over the fact that a Sami Award was awarded to Big E has “leaked”.
As we previously reported, Zayn created his own version of the Slammy Awards and presented them on this week’s edition of SmackDown. It was clear that the man himself was meant to win all of the awards, but somehow Zayn’s TLC challenger Big E won the award for “Superstar of the Year”.
Following the incident, Zayn retreated to the backstage area and proceeded to unleash a tirade of abuse of members of the WWE production team. This tirade — which is suspiciously similar to recently leaked Tom Cruise rant — was secretly recorded and subsequently leaked by backstage interviewer Kayla Braxton.
“Don’t apologize to me, just tell me what the hell happened out there,” Zayn yells. “Tell me how you allowed that to happen! Do you know how hard it was to get the Sami Awards to happen?! I’m on the phone with WWE! I’m on the phone with FOX! I’m on the phone with networks!
“They’re looking to me to put on quality programming, do you understand? Do you understand that people are depending on me? I sleep with that responsibility every night. Do you understand that? So where were you?!”
