Sami Zayn Explains Why WWE Did Not Give Him A Stereotypical Gimmick


Former NXT Champion Sami Zayn recently spoke with Sport 360 to promote WWE’s tour of Abu Dhabi that took place over the weekend. 

Down below is an excerpt from the interview in which he talks about not being given a stereotypical gimmick while in WWE.

“I’m very proud that I can be myself. I’m not trying to be Arabic, I’m just being me and I happen to be Arabic. I think that might be refreshing to some people and it’s a bit more realistic than these pantomime villains we’ve seen before. Hopefully I can change some people’s perceptions being a down-to-earth human being that happens to be Arabic. Whether you’re Arabic or Portuguese it doesn’t really matter. A dude’s a dude!”
