WWE Hall of Famer Brian “Road Dogg” James revealed that he once pitched a cross-brand creative idea for Sami Zayn and El Generico.
Speaking recently on his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, James wanted Zayn and Generico to appear on both RAW and SmackDown. However, the idea never panned out. Of the creative pitch, Road Dogg said, “I pitched the idea of trying to do [a wrestler playing two characters] with Sami Zayn and El Generico, on one on each show [WWE Raw and WWE SmackDown]. I still think that would be awesome, but, but you have to play it out, like, ‘No, it’s not him.’ It is like a stretch of the imagination to ask you to buy it, but it’s also fun.”
James went on to note that the idea went on to happen in a sense with Elias and Ezekiel.
