Sami Zayn has been enjoying life and working with the biggest pro-wrestling organization in the world, WWE. It was only a few years ago that the Canadian was wrestling with a mask to hide his identity.

Now, Sami Zayn gets to work with the biggest names in the sport and he sometimes even forgets just how big working in the WWE is. Zayn spoke about it with Dallas Morning News and got real about working in the organization.

“You know, working in WWE is a strange thing. These people that you’ve been fans of growing up as a child and had these massive impacts on you growing up, eventually they become your peers. And it’s a strange thing. And then what ends up happening is you sort of lose your perspective sometimes because you get on the hamster wheel of the WWE lifestyle – the busy and difficult things – you kind of get tunnel vision and you kind of forget sometimes how special it is to be here rubbing elbows with the people that you once looked up to.”
