Sami Zayn Reveals Original Plans For The Bloodline Storyline

Sami Zayn on The Bloodline

Sami Zayn has established himself as the most popular talent on WWE TV over the past several months as his alliance with The Bloodline has developed, with the former Intercontinental Champion officially being inducted into the group in recent weeks as an Honorary Uce. Bloodline members can often be seen on TV trying their best not to break character during Zayn's antics and he has become an integral part of their current programmes on Raw and SmackDown.

Zayn's close integration with the group ultimately wasn't the original plan, though, and he revealed what was originally discussed on WWE - Die Woche

"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?" Zayn began.

"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," he continued.

"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?"

Fans have predicted that The Bloodline will ultimately turn on Zayn, with Jey Uso having never quite accepted him in The Bloodline. If and when the turn will take place, though, remains to be seen.
