It makes a lot of sense given the wwe goes out of their way to own everything about the Sami Zayn character that he protects what he has/owns.
^Couldn't have said it better.
For everyone who keeps saying that WWE 'ruined him' - we don't really know for sure the circumstances behind his unmasking, but I've said numerous times that it might have been by Generico's own choosing. Plus, with the way he went out in PWG with his speech, I'm not really sure why anyone expected him to show up in WWE as the same character.
