• Sami Zayn Compared To 3x WCW World Heavyweight Champion
On a recent episode of the WrestleBinge podcast, WCW Legend Eric Bischoff compared current WWE wrestler Sami Zayn to former 3-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Diamond Dallas Page.
Here’s what Easy E had to say:
“There are some parallels there. DDP was kind of in the middle of the roster, right, and he was pretty good.
But once DDP made that transition, once he turned down the nWo and started working with Randy Savage and so many other top names, he just blew out of the pack.
He didn’t slowly grow his way to the top of the roster, he just blew the doors off.”
Diamond Dallas Page wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1991 until the company was sold to Vince McMahon in March 2001.
Sami Zayn on the other hand, came up through the independent scene (2002-2013), where he wrestled under a mask and was known as El Generico.
