https://www.instagram.com/p/CHN80zIn_z8/WWE’s Sami Zayn recently revealed himself to be aGreat British Bake Off superfan – and it turns out he knows his stuff.
In a case of real recognising real, the current Intercontinental Champion is a big fan of 2018 winner Rahul Mandal, and he has heaped praise on the star baker and engineering researcher.
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, he said: ‘It’s funny, my wife and I will still kinda joke about Rahul from a few seasons ago. [laughs]
‘I think he’s one of the best TV characters of all time, from any show! What a great character. It’s so funny, it’s a great show!’
Yep, Sami is a massive Bake Off fan, although he’ll be disappointed his favourite Sura Selvarajah got eliminated – he’s still got Peter Sawkins in the running, mind.
As we revealed earlier in the series, he’s also interested in testing out his own baking skills in the famous tent on a celebrity series, once his hectic schedule allows it.
‘I recently learned there’s a Celebrity Bake Off,’ he said. ‘So if there’s ever some sort of way for me to politic my way into it, I would look forward to that!’
However, there might not necessarily be a Hollywood Handshake in Sami’s future, with the wrestling star admitting he’s never really given baking a proper go.
‘I’d have to practice a little bit,’ he admitted. ‘Also, being vegan I guess I’d have to wonder if I could use dairy products, or if I would use dairy products.
‘I don’t know – it would be very interesting. I know they do a vegan week sometimes, but it’s few and far between.
Maybe if we all just hope really hard, it’ll finally happen.
