Sami Zayn To Launch New Campaign For Syrian Medical Relief During WWE Super ShowDown

SSD takes place inside the King Abdullah International Stadium in Saudi Arabia on Friday...

Sami Zayn will be at the forefront of another campaign to benefit medical relief efforts in Syria - with his newest campaign due to start during this Friday's WWE Super ShowDown event in Saudi Arabia.

Sami, working with the American Medical Society, will be launching a new mobile clinic that kicks off at 2 PM ET - the same time the main Super ShowDown card is slated to begin.

Sami made the announcement on Twitter earlier this week: "Intensified attacks in NW Syria are targeting civilians & medical facilities. I will once again be partnering with @sams_usa to launch a mobile clinic in Syria to bring medical aid to those in desperate need. Our fundraiser will be launched Friday, June 7, 2pm EDT."

Reports last week claimed former NXT Champion Zayn had been removed from the Super ShowDown card due to his ethnicity.

Sami isn't the only WWE Superstar who won't be appearing on the show, with the likes of Daniel Bryan, John Cena and Kevin Owens all said to have turned down the chance to appear inside the King Abdullah International Stadium.
