Sami Zayn has already been WWE Intercontinental champion three times in his career. Now he looks to do what nobody has been able to do so far, that being to defeat the Ring General Gunther for the title. The leader of Imperium has been champion for more than 640 days and intends to keep on making history by retaining the belt as long as he can.

Sami Zayn will now be in a championship match for the second year in a row at WrestleMania, as he won the WWE Undisputed Tag Team championships with Kevin Owens last year at WrestleMania 39, by defeating The Usos in the main event of the Night 1 of the show.
