WWE Superstar Sami Zayn (real name Rami Sebei) is currently signed to the SmackDown brand. Zayn began his pro wrestling career back in 2002, appearing on the independent scene as El Generico.

Generico was a hugely successful performer on the independent circuit. Donning a mask and using a litany of luchador moves, Zayn was able to become a mainstay in the likes of Pro Wrestling Guerilla (PWG), Pro Wrestling Syndicate (PWS), Chikara and Ring of Honor (ROH). As El Generico, Zayn won a plethora of titles whilst running on the indie scene, as well as prestigious tournaments such as PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles (2011) and wXw’s 16 Carat Gold.

Sami Zayn would sign for WWE in 2013, making his debut on the NXT brand in May of that year. The former El Generico would become a hugely popular character on the brand, winning the NXT Championship in December 2014 at NXT Takeover: R Evolution. Sami defeated then Champion Adrian Neville (now PAC in AEW) before being joined by, and then attacked by, his longtime friend and rival from the independent scene, Kevin Owens.

After a one-off US Title match against John Cena in 2015; Zayn made his full debut on the main roster at the Royal Rumble in 2016.

Since his time on the main roster began, Sami Zayn has the Intercontinental Championship and a Slammy Award for NXT Superstar of The Year in 2014.


Sami Zayn keeps his private life extremely private. AJ Styles once joked about Zayn getting ‘fat’ because his wife was pregnant and he was gaining sympathy weight; this was an odd joke to make but there’s nothing public about Zayn being married or even having children.
