When it comes to his role in WWE’s The Bloodline group, Sami Zayn believes that his story is very relatable to the viewer at home.
One of the biggest storylines in WWE this year has been all about The Bloodline group led by the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, who is joined by the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, their younger brother Solo Sikoa and the Special Counsel, Paul Heyman.
At Survivor Series in the Men’s WarGames match, Zayn proved his loyalty to the group by hitting his former best friend Kevin Owens with a low blow and a Helluva Kick. After Jey Uso won the match with an Uso Splash, Zayn was hugged by the group. Since then, Zayn has been on the same page with Jey, who had been the most hesitant to trust the talented Canadian.
In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Sami Zayn explained why he thinks the story resonates so well with the fans.
“Part of why the cheers rolled in for me with The Bloodline quicker than I expected, to be honest, is because it’s so earnest. You can see the desire to be with these people is genuine. It’s a very relatable story, but not in an unattainable way. You’re finally hanging out with the cool kids, and you realize they’re not that different.”
“On paper, maybe people would think I don’t fit in on the top of the card. But I believe I’m pretty good at this. It’s so hard to separate a healthy dose of self-confidence from my delusions, but from an early age, even when I wasn’t that good, my performances stood out. Even in the church basement in front of 60 people in Montreal, it worked.”
Sami Zayn will have one of the biggest matches of his WWE career as he teams with Roman Reigns on the December 30th edition of Smackdown against Kevin Owens and John Cena, who will be wrestling in his first match of 2022 on the second last day of the year.
