WWE SmackDown star and a former three times WWE United States champion Sami Zayn who is also a former WWE NXT champion recently talked about his current story line with the Bloodline and revealed that this excellent storyline was planned from 2021.
Sami Zayn is currently involved in one of the best storylines in WWE right now, some fans believe that it is currently the best ongoing storyline of WWE. The story started after WrestleMania 38 where Sami was pushing to join the Bloodline and he had been totally ignored by the members of the stable. But ultimately he managed to get some attention from the Tribal Chief himself, and after a number of months, he announced Sami as an Honorary Uce.
Sami Zayn Reveals His Bloodline Storyline Was Planned Back In 2021
Slowly, Sami managed to build a good connection with Roman Reigns and Jimmy Uso, especially with Jimmy, with whom he was having an excellent time. But there was one problem, Jey Uso never like him and he only preferred his family blood in the stable, so he wanted him out of the Bloodline. But since Roman Reigns was giving him approval, Jey had nothing to say over it.
But ultimately Sami managed to gain the faith of Jey after he helped Bloodline to conquer their opponents at Survivor Series inside the WarGames chamber. He decided to help the Bloodline over his best friend Kevin Owens.
Ultimately he will be betrayed by Bloodline, but everybody is waiting to see how it happens. No doubt it is the best storyline of 2022. But if it was seeded since 2021, we highly doubt it could have been this much good with Vince McMahon being in charge.
Sami Zayn who is also a former WWE NXT champion recently spoke to the Cheap Heat podcast with host Peter Rosenberg where he talked about his current story line with the Bloodline and revealed that this excellent storyline was planned from 2021. He said;
“I won’t pull the curtain back too much, but the idea was kicked around about a year ago, a good six months before the seeds were even planted on screen. The first time I think there was any interaction between myself and the Bloodline was just after WrestleMania. In actuality, the idea was first discussed going into Survivor Series of last year.
“I was doing this whole thing on SmackDown where I was the longest-tenured member as the locker room leader. I thought it’d be something interesting with the locker room leader and Head of the Table. The premise being, the Head of the Table isn’t in the locker room anymore.
“I wasn’t originally envisioning being a full member of the Bloodline or anything like that, just something to where Roman and I can occasionally get on screen together in a light-hearted way and I’m giving him these reports of what’s going on and what he needs to be careful for. Every once in a while, I get things kicked my way too. That was sort of the idea.
“It was talked about with Roman as well. We were sitting at catering one day, and I heard an interview that he did with Ariel Helwani where he was very kind towards me and saying nice things about me as an on-screen character and that he’d like to do something down the road with me one day. We got to talking and I don’t remember exactly how it went, but it was a mutual thing.”
