Sami Zayn is one of the most talented wrestler in the WWE roster, he had to work really hard to be in this position. Sami always gave his best Irrespective of the opponent. Sami gained massive popularity after his storyline with The Bloodline.
Sami Zayn recently was in WWE After The Bell podcast, where he talked his mentality during the NXT days.
“I remember when I got to WWE, it was NXT or something like that, it was very much the mentality of, ‘you should be furious that you’re here. You should want to get out of here.”
“You should want to get on the road. Everyone around you is your enemy, they are all vying for your spot. This is a competition. You have to be the best to get out of here.”
“If you don’t want to be the best, you shouldn’t even work here.’ I remember a line something to the extent of, ‘If you don’t want to be the next John Cena, you shouldn’t even be here.’ I remember hearing that and being completely [mouth agape]. ‘What? This is insanity.’”
“Let’s just say we’re in a room with 100 people, let’s just say the next John Cena is in this room. There’s only one, so the other 99 people in this room should be miserable at all times trying to aspire to be that person? What kind of insanity is that?” (H/T: RingSideNews)
