As some of you may already know, NXT is doing a tour of the United Kingdom next week. The company had advertised Sami Zayn to be there but it was not clear at the time if he was going to be wrestling or just making an appearance.

Generally, the company does not do that unless the performer is going to be there. Zayn has proven to be quite a draw overseas, so there is a chance that he could just be making an appearance and not actually wrestling for NXT.
