3. Sami Zayn: Rami Sebei
He began his journey wrestling for a small Montreal based promotion called IWS. Rami would find his footing under the masked alias of El Generico. As ridiculous as it might sound looking at him today with the WWE, the character gained huge amounts of popularity with various promotions including Ring of Honor which he used the name and gimmick to feud and partner with Kevin Owens.
With the emergence of NXT, Triple H looked for a veteran face to lead the way. Sami was the perfect candidate for the job. He debuted under his real name, Rami Sebei and took off the mask for the first time in a long while. The WWE would opt to keep his mask off while renaming him Sami Zayn.
For those of you who are curious, his name is in fact Arabic. Sebei is Syrian, although he was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec.
