Sami Zayn Reveals a Big Lesson He Learned from Dusty Rhodes
As noted, WWE.com has posted a series of interviews with “Dusty’s Kids”, heading into tonight’s NXT Takeover Respect Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Below is a story from Sami Zayn:
“Another lesson hit me right around the time of his passing. I had an epiphany, a light bulb went off. I remember being in class with him. I remember people going up and being awesome [on the microphone] and he’d say, ‘Awesome.’ Then other people would do terrible, just awful. Dusty would go, ‘Clear. Perfect, that’s great.’ I would think to myself, ‘What? How does Dusty Rhodes, the greatest talker of all time, think that was great?’ Then, it dawned on me one day. Sometimes, Dusty said what you needed to hear for you to grow. He could have picked it apart, piece by piece, but what’s that doing for your confidence? What’s that doing for you as a performer? If anything, it’s going to make you more robotic and be in a shell, trying to remember all these notes. Instead, he gave you validation, which helped you grow as a speaker and performer. I’m getting goosebumps thinking of it, but it’s a serious life lesson I take far beyond this business. Sometimes, people just need a little encouragement. You just need to show people a little love and that will take them further than any advice you could give them.”
