Default Dishonest Translator Gimmick

Had an idea for a gimmick and wondered if had been done. Has anyone ever done a dishonest translator gimmick? Meaning a foreign non English speaking wrestler comes in and needs a translator. The translator is a fellow wrestler that happens to speak the same language.

At first the translator plays it straight, but then starts fucking around. Tells the audience the translatte says their fat, ugly, and he hates them all and then translatee is confused why they are booing him. Translates to a monster e.g. Kane that the translatee is talking shit about him and the poor guy has no idea why he is getting the shit beat out of him. The translatee asks for a title shot and the translator says he is demanding better pay and perks for the translator out of gratitude for translating.

Eventually the translatee learns english catches the translator and starts a feud.

That could be pretty funny if those involved could pull it off well.

Hm, finally an idea for Mysterio's heel turn on Sin Cara? Oh wait, Cara would botch the english promos worse than Khali

I feel like it's been done but if it hasn't, props to you. I really do like the idea. When Jinder Mahal debuted, it appeared they were setting something up like that with he and Kahli. Then they literally dropped that storyline out of nowhere, turned Kahli face again and nothing was said.

Not to be that guy but, aside from feeling this is already over-played in movies, how exactly will this work? How will the audience know the translator is being dishonest and not simply that the foreign wrestler is just being nice/stupid?

This shtick in movies makes use of subtitles to convey the misdirection. Without the subtitles I don't see this working.

The heel will say over the microphone a sentence or two and then the translator will say something that's clearly longer then what was said, adding on his own little tidbits that the audience would know that the other heel didn't / wouldn't say.
