Sami Zayn was born in Montreal, Quebec on July 12, 1984. He comes from a Syrian background and has been proud to represent Arabs in the world of professional wrestling and in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) for all of these years. Sami presently resides in Orlando, Florida.
Sami began his professional wrestling career in 2002 under the ring name El Generico, in which he would sport a luchador mask and have the crowd chant “ole.”
The very first promotion he worked for was the Canadian-based company International Wrestling Syndicate (IWS). Two years later, he moved on to the popular independent wrestling promotion Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG). He would be a regular performer for the company until 2013. In 2005, Sami started to work with Chikara, a Philadelphia-based promotion. At the same time, he signed with Ring of Honor (ROH). He would win several single and tag team championships with these companies.
Until he went to the WWE, Sami wrestled for a large number of promotions all over the world, including Dragon Gate, Evolve, Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) and Hart Legacy Wrestling (HLW).
It was in 2013 when Sami signed with the WWE. He was then sent to the company’s developmental system, NXT, where he would eventually win the NXT Championship. Although he made his main roster debut in a match against John Cena, Sami earned his permanent spot on the main roster at the 2016 Royal Rumble. Since then, he has feuded with Kevin Owens, competed at WrestleMania and fought in the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Sami is known as a high-risk and very talented competitor. During WrestleMania weekend, Sami fought against Shinsuke Nakamura at an NXT event, which many say was definitely a Match of the Year candidate.
We estimate that Sami Zayn’s net worth is $400,000 (2015).
So how much is $400,000 really?
$400,000 is roughly what a midcard WWE SuperStar earns. $400,000 could buy you front-row tickets for about 20 other people to WrestleMania. $400,000 could also help you launch a modest pro-wrestling promotion.
