Sami Zayn has established himself as one of the highlights of Friday Night Smackdown. This is because he underwent a gimmick change, becoming a conspiracy theorist. Zayn believes WWE Superstars can lose perspective as well.
Zayn has worked in WWE for almost a decade now and has seen how much the company has changed since his debut. Throughout the years, Zayn has seen stars come and go from the company for a variety of reasons.
While speaking to The Dallas Morning News, Sami Zayn talked about his pro wrestling career and working with Kevin Owens. Zayn then stated that he believes WWE Superstars can lose perspective.
“I guess I’m seeing it through a bit of a different lens than most. I’m sure 95% of the people are just so pumped to see Austin coming back – and they’re right to do it – but for me, knowing my friend and knowing him early in life and knowing what a huge influence and a huge impact Steve Austin had on him, I’m just so happy for him that he gets to do this. It’s so surreal. And I know it’s surreal for him.
You know, working in WWE is a strange thing. These people that you’ve been fans of growing up as a child and had these massive impacts on you growing up, eventually, they become your peers. And it’s a strange thing. And then what ends up happening is you sort of lose your perspective sometimes because you get on the hamster wheel of the WWE lifestyle – the busy and difficult things – you kind of get tunnel vision and you kind of forget sometimes how special it is to be here rubbing elbows with the people that you once looked up to.
But I know this is going to be huge for Kevin, and I’m very happy for him. So I think I’m looking at it that way. And I know that when it finally happens I’m sure I’ll put my fan goggles back on and just appreciate it for what it is, but at the moment, just hearing about it – I’m really, really happy for him.”
Kevin Owens is set to be part of a segment with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin at WrestleMania 38. On the other hand, Sami Zayn will be squaring off against Johnny Knoxville at WrestleMania 38 in a singles match. We’ll have to see how both of them fair in their respective WrestleMania moments.
