Sami Zayn Talks His Storyline With The Bloodline And How It Evolved From The Initial Idea

Top WWE Superstar Sami Zayn made an appearance on Die Woche to talk about a variety of topics such as his storyline with The Bloodline and how the whole thing evolved quite a bit from the initial idea.

Sami Zayn said:

“Well so the whole thing actually evolved quite a bit from the initial idea [Zayn said about his story with The Bloodline] and I really love where we’re at now. I think a lot of the fans are enjoying it so, I’m happy it all went the way it did. But the initial idea wasn’t necessarily to join The Bloodline because I didn’t even think that was possible. It’s The Bloodline, you have to be blood, right? But the idea was I was calling myself the locker room leader, especially at that time and of course Roman Reigns is the Head of the Table. So the idea would have been to have sort of an on-screen relationship where I’m checking in with him and he’s checking in with me and I can help him out when the time is right and you know, that kind of thing. But then it kind of just morphed and evolved into this and it’s been a collaborative process for sure with everybody involved and everybody’s just really in their roles really full-steam ahead and I think that’s what’s making it work so well is everyone’s so committed to it and the fans are — it’s so funny because I just see them predicting what’s gonna happen next every week and it’s never quite what they think is gonna happen so that’s what I love. It’s kind of semi-predictable, but it’s not at all predictable, you know?”

Sami Zayn also talked about how some WWE fans think he is more popular than Roman Reigns, but that is not the case as part of the reason he is getting widely popular is because of the interactions he has been having with Roman Reigns.

Sami Zayn said:

“I wouldn’t say that. I wouldn’t say I’m more popular than Roman Reigns for sure because part of the reason I’m getting popular is because of the interaction with Roman Reigns and because the interactions have been enjoyable, I think that’s when the fans are beginning to warm up to me a little bit, right? But without him, it doesn’t work the same… When we come out there, we’re starting to kind of hear them single me out and cheer for me. I think that’s because they wanna see where that goes. They’re curious to see where that part of it goes which again, great and the fact that I just told you [at the] beginning of this interview, I was in New York City for a few days and New York’s a big wrestling town so I was getting stopped by fans a lot those two or three days and every one of them, it was like, ‘Honorary Uce!’ Honorary Uce’, you know? So they’re really, really digging this and I love it. I actually kind of did expect this storyline in a way to start to turn the fans’ perspective on me a little bit. But not this quick and not this much. It has been surprising for sure.”
