Sami Zayn Wants Fans To Chant 'You Got Lucky' When He Wins The WWE Championship
Zayn doesn't want to hear 'You Deserve It' chants
Sami Zayn wants fans to chant 'you got lucky' rather than 'you deserve it' should the day come that he wins the WWE Championship.
The 'you deserve it' chant has become more and more common in recent years as fans show their appreciation for a wrestler who they feel has worked hard and is deserving of the spot they have been put in, such as Big E recently winning the Money In The Bank contract.
But the issue, according to Zayn, is that everyone works hard.
Therefore, per the former Intercontinental Champion's logic, if everyone works hard and the decision on who is Champion comes from the opinions of the show's writers, then the chosen few are lucky.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Zayn said: "My favourite chant in wrestling: 'You deserve it'. I'm like, 'Do you? Do you deserve anything?'
"What about believing that chant? 'I worked hard and I do deserve it.' No, I don't think so. Everyone works hard, with a few exceptions. The biggest source of...malcontent? The thing that leaves me in a state of unease is how amazing my life is and the juxtaposition with how awful life is for so many other people and the sorrow I feel for other people and how I have it so good.
"It's not because I deserve it. That's the point. I don't deserve it any more than the next person. I don't. I believe it's just mainly luck. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I worked hard. Whatever. Everybody works hard. I'm really great at wrestling. I'm really really good. Not everybody is this good. A lot of people work hard at a lot of things and don't get the breaks. I got breaks. It's time to acknowledge that.
"Don't ever chant 'You deserve it' at me. I don't want to hear it. I would much rather, 'You got lucky! You got lucky!' That would be more accurate. When I win the WWE Championship, that's what I want. 'You got super lucky!'
"Not the best chant in the world, but you make it work, people. That's the truth. Hard work, sure, whatever."
