Sami Zayn has managed in recent months to make his way among the most important athletes on the WWE main roster, coming up alongside Roman Reigns, first as an indispensable ally and then as a bitter enemy. In the last ppv of the company, Elimination Chamber, Sami also came close to defeating the Tribal Chief for the two world champion belts, with his attack that could now move on the Usos, in that of Wrestlemania 39.
Apparently, however, Sami would not have convinced everyone with his work, with an important insider who continues to speak badly of the Canadian's character, now comparing him to the descending parable of the legendary DDP in WCW.
We are talking about none other than Eric Bischoff, former top executive of WCW, who in his last interview with the microphones of WrestleBinge in fact wanted to make the comparison as follows: "There are parallels here. DDP was a dude in the middle of the roster, right, and he was pretty good.
But once DDP made his transition, once he dropped out of the nWo and started working with Randy Savage and many other names, he pretty much dropped out of the planes that mattered, dropped out of the deck. He hasn't gone on to slow rise and failed to climb to the top of the roster; he basically closed the important doors himself." According to the former director of Friday Night Smackdown, therefore, Sami Zayn is also doing the same thing in WWE, with his parable already going downhill, with fans who will soon begin to abandon him.
Sami Zayn is a WWE veteran
Apparently, not only would Sami Zayn be a minor character for Bischoff, but also Cody Rhodes according to the well-known executive would have been a half-flop in his WCW. After making a surprise return to WWE in the last edition of the Grandaddy of Them All, Cody has found an ever greater success, which WWE has expertly built.
According to Eric Bischoff, however, Cody's character would not have been able to make the same success if he had lived during his WCW era. Again on the microphones of his latest interview for WrestleBinge, the former WWE and WCW director stated: "Everything in WCW was different in '96.
Honestly, it's hard to say what would have happened before. But, man, the nWo was strong and it was on fire and all the attention was on the nWo for a good year and a half, even two. I think it would have been difficult to send over someone else instead of the nWo at that time.
So Cody would still have been a very important character on Nitro, but I don't think he would have been as important as he is now or at least he wouldn't have garnered as much attention, if you will, on TV as the nWo did because they just were so hot."
