Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are currently two of the most popular stars on the WWE main roster, but two former agents in particular have spoken about how hard they are to work with.
Speaking on the Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw podcast, WWE Hall of Famers JBL and Road Dogg spoke about agenting for WWE, and how Owens and Zayn like to ‘question everything’.
JBL: “I lasted six weeks as an agent. I walked in and said, ‘I will not be doing this anymore.’ I love Sami. I think his character is great. But I was his agent and everything was questioned. Everything.”
Road Dogg: “Kevin (Owens) is the same way. Every single thing needs to be talked out and talked about a lot, and I’m talking about from the reversal of an Irish Whip to, well now do you put your feet here? I would always just say, ‘You all put something together and come back to me’, because I wasn’t going to sit there and debate because that will do it. Sami Zayn will do it, but he’s the nicest guy in the world.”
JBL: “Sami is a nice guy. He’s extremely talented, but when I had to work with him as his agent, as soon as the match was over, I walked up to John Laurinaitis and said, ‘I will not be here next week.’ He said, ‘Is it that bad?’ I said, ‘I’m doing commentary only.”
Owens is set to face off against Elias’ younger brother Ezekiel at WWE Hell in a Cell, while Sami Zayn is involved with Roman Reigns and The Bloodline.
