A new report has indicated that Triple H’s plans for a former Universal Champion have been pushed back due to another act getting over.
The Honorary Uce Sami Zayn is stealing the show every week on SmackDown as an unlikely part of The Bloodline. Sharing the ring and promo time with both the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, and Paul Heyman may make lesser men cower in fear but Zayn is clearly having the time of his life and his popularity with fans is only increasing week after week.
But a new report suggests that this was never meant to be the plan and explains why former Universal Champion Kevin Owens has been absent from SmackDown in recent weeks.
A new report from WrestleVotes suggests that the cause of Chief Content Officer Triple H having to postpone plans for Owens is Sami Zayn’s show-stealing appearances in The Bloodline:
“He was pegged to get involved with Sami and The Bloodline, but that’s white hot right now. Those plans from what I’ve been told are definitely pushed back, but they’re not off, because the plan is for Kevin Owens to be with Sami Zayn.”
“Whatever they had planned for Kevin Owens is totally on pause because this stuff with Sami doesn’t come around often. This was supposed to be a little three, four week comedy deal, and it’s getting big.”
