Sami Zayn's absent
Sami Zayn is the current "Intercontinental Champion." He misses last Friday's Smackdown, where you usually see him at the sidelines watching Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura performing. Zayn had his wisdom teeth removed and not able to make an appearance.
Depending on the procedures, having your wisdom teeth removed can be painful. It will leave you swollen and unable to talk. Quite frankly, it is fantastic to have Zayn on the mic a break.
