Sami Zayn Believes The Usos Are Still Good People Despite Their Current Feud

Sami Zayn still believes The Bloodline is crumbling but also clarifies that he still sees good and Jimmy and Jey Uso.

Sami Zayn teamed with Kevin Owens to capture the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship from Jimmy and Jey Uso at WrestleMania 39. Prior to that match, Zayn was very close with both of The Usos as a member of The Bloodline. However, now he is hoping to see the demise of that group, as he reiterated on the April 19 episode of WWE's The Bump.

“I’m of the opinion that they are crumbling, and right after WrestleMania, you were able to see it a little more closely," he said. "I think they have regrouped a little bit, that much is clear. I really thought that we would get the job done once and for all, that when we beat The Usos, Cody would be next to beat Roman, and it would all just fall apart. We did our part, and Cody, for a variety of reasons, Cody couldn’t walk away with the title that night. The Bloodline was able to hold it together for Roman that night. I think they’re on the ropes, but you are seeing them kind of regroup now and recollect themselves. They are a bit more…maybe dangerous is not the right word, but when there’s that desperation, it does kind of make you a bit more dangerous. So they’re not readily to let things go so easily, they’re not ready to go quietly into the night, clearly. They are coming all guns blazing, and that is something to be concerned about. "

As for whether or not he believes that there is still some good in Jimmy and Jey, Zayn compared his relationship to any friendship or romantic relationship, saying that even though people can drift apart, the bond never goes away.

“Yeah, 100%. I feel the same way about Jimmy. Look, it’s like any other relationship, whether it’s a friendship, romantic relationship, anything in life. There are times you kind of drift apart, but it’s not an on-off switch. You don’t suddenly stop caring about that person overnight, even if they did you wrong, which they have. Both Usos have, and Jey has repeatedly. There’s always gonna be a part of me that’s gonna remember the connection we had as damn near brothers, seriously. So I do, on some level, still kind of want [audio cuts out]. I know that sounds kind of weird, after everything we’ve been through, but I mean look, I’m not the only one who sees it. Anybody who’s watched this story play out over the last year, year and a half, come on, more, three years. We’ve seen the way Roman’s treated him. We’ve seen that really The Usos have been carrying The Bloodline. You see that it’s just not right, for Jey’s been through. At the same time, it’s hard to feel sorry for him sometimes because he does some pretty horrible things, and then you gotta get even with him. So that’s kind of where we’re at now, but I do feel like I’m hoping, on some level, that if we beat them, and we beat them again, and just keep doing our thing, that these cracks in The Bloodline will turn into giant holes that have to be addressed, and the whole thing does fall apart because it needs to fall apart," said Zayn.
