Sami Zayn: My Part In The Bloodline Story Is Done, More Or Less; I Hope Everyone Enjoyed It

Sami Zayn reflects on The Bloodline storyline.

Throughout 2022, Zayn gradually joined The Bloodline (Roman Reigns, The Usos, and Paul Heyman). Solo Sikoa later entered the mix, and Zayn established himself as the "Honorary Uce." But as 2023 began, Reigns began to doubt Zayn's loyalty due to his ties with Kevin Owens, one of the group's most stubborn enemies. Zayn turned on The Bloodline after Reigns beat Owens at WWE Royal Rumble 2023.

From there, Zayn feuded with Reigns, and he lost to "The Tribal Chief" at WWE Elimination Chamber. He then reunited with Owens, and the duo beat The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) to win the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 39. Zayn and Owens retained the titles in a rematch, but The Usos and Sikoa beat Zayn, Owens, and Matt Riddle at WWE Backlash.

In an interview with Alex McCarthy for Inside The Ropes, Zayn was asked about what he learned from his run in the Bloodline storyline. He stated that it was one of the greatest things he has done in his career. He also that his involvement was done, more or less.

“It’s hard to say because sometimes I do these things, I’m like, ‘Well, that was it. I don’t think I’ll do anything better than that. But I’ve been pretty lucky in my career because I had 21 years before I did the Bloodline story, and for as many great things that I had done before, I still got to do something even greater with the Bloodline story. So I don’t know if that’s the only thing I’ll be remembered for. I really don’t know what I’ll be remembered for, and it’s kind of out of my hands, to be honest. But if it is something that is remembered fondly in the years to come, what more can you ask for? That’s wonderful. It was a blast. Sometimes the hidden laughter, or the clear chemistry between the performers on-screen and all that, it was just kind of a wired lighting-in-a-bottle, perfect stars aligning for these variables to create this thing. So many things went into creating something that just felt a bit special. So it would be very hard to recreate, but it’s done, more or less, and I’m glad I got to do it, and there’s not much more to say than that, other than I hope everybody enjoyed it and remembers it fondly," Zayn said.
