Sunil and Samir Singh, collectively known as The Singh Brothers appeared on a recent episode of Talk Is Jericho podcast and talked about their career and more. Below are some of the highlights from the podcast:

Sunil Singh on once showing up on Raw without being booked and getting kicked out of the show:

“We were trying to get booked, get noticed, this is 10 years ago, so long-story-short, we’re sending our stuff, ‘no’ is the answer we’re getting, so we’re like, ‘you know what? Screw it. We’re going to buy a plane ticket, and fly to Toronto’ and we flew to Toronto not booked for the Monday Night RAW TV show as extras. So we got told, ‘hey, you’re not supposed to be here. You have to leave the building.’ And on our way out, that’s when we bumped into [Jericho] at catering.”

Sunil on getting his start with the legendary Hart family:

“I got my start in 2004 with the Harts in Calgary [Alberta] maybe a month before they sold the Hart House, so I showed up not knowing they were going to sell the house. That’s our gimmick – we just show up, but you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do to make it. I showed up and the most I learned, I think, was the ‘tackle, drop down, get it again’ spot. I had Bruce [Hart] teaching me and Ross. The very first bump I took was from T.J. Wilson and my first bodyslam was from Nattie. Harry [Smith] was down there. Everybody was down there. That’s how we all know them and I spent about two-and-a-half months down there.”

Sunil on getting paired as a team and their main roster debut:

“You know they talk about ‘timing is everything’ and timing was everything for this. Totally unexpected. Dude, we were finishing up yoga class at the PC when I saw a missed call from a 203 area code.  so I see the missed call. I call the number back. It was travel saying, ‘hey, you guys are needed for Tuesday on TV’ and we were like, ‘oh cool.’ And this goes back to the 205 [Live], that we were doing. We thought we were going back. And we’re like, ‘alright, cool.’ And long-story-short, that Tuesday we show up and they smartened us up to the whole deal.”

Sunil on Jericho being the first person who advised them to work as a team:

“[Jericho] called it! Remember? When we first came up from 205, like the RAW before the very first 205, me, Gurv, and Jinder were just in catering, we were standing and talking, and [Jericho was] like, ‘you guys should be a team!’ and you just walked away.”

Chris Jericho on how he should be booking WWE in response to the comment from Sunil:

“I’m a prophet and I’ll tell you the reason why. I called John Cena back when no one thought anything of it. I called The New Day as the biggest babyfaces in the company when they were trying to make them, well, they were trying to make them s–tty babyfaces. I said, ‘they’d be way better as heels than babyfaces. Then Enzo [Amore] in the cruiserweights. I called that one. Then, you guys being a team. I should be booking this place, man!”
