The Story Behind Sami Zayn’s Mask

Sami wore a mask from 2002 to 2013. He used his stage name El Generico and fought for many championships and said that wearing the mask will teach the art of body language and facial expression. He revealed why he and the budding wrestler must wear masks with Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy:

“Honestly if I was building wrestlers, I would make everybody wrestle in a mask for a few years. I think it’s crucial. I mean I’m saying this having my personal experience, but I think it teaches you a lot of really valuable lessons in the performance side. Your body language sort of gets ramped up a little bit because you don’t have the luxury of using the face, so you kind of learn to tell a more complete story using more of your body to articulate the same thing non-verbally, so I think that’s pretty cool.”
