Sami Zayn has become one of the most jovial, fun-loving and exciting Superstars to step foot inside the WWE NXT ring. Using an eclectic blend of dazzling, high-risk maneuvers aided by his feverish passion, Zayn has also earned the spot as one of NXT's most popular Superstars. Public perception aside, Zayn’s personal rivalry has turned into an obsession. Tonight at NXT ArRIVAL, Zayn's self-appointed obligation is to defeat Cesaro. 

"A lot of it has to do with the fans' feelings toward the first match we had," Zayn told WWE.com. “I still hear about the match all the time from fans, from people at the WWE Performance Center, even from WWE Superstars on Raw and SmackDown.

“The larger the reputation of the match grew, the more disappointed I became with the fact that I lost. It's hard for an athlete to accept that the thing you are most known for is a loss,” he said.

Zayn needed no pushing or prodding to accept another chance to face The Real American again:

"Another shot at Cesaro at the most important NXT event ever? What more incentive do I need, really?" Zayn asked rhetorically.

Unfortunately, there is one potential roadblock in the way of his objective: a bad knee.
