During the Royal Rumble, in the main event, Roman Reigns' Bloodline inevitably imploded when the Tribal Chief pressured poor Sami Zayn into hitting a completely destroyed and handcuffed Kevin Owens with a chair, with Honorary Uce at the finally got pissed off and kicked Reigns out instead.
Despite the great success that this storyline has had and the many months that have passed with Zayn remaining faithful to the Samoan family, things shouldn't have been carried on for so long and Sami Zayn confessed it during an interview with Ariel Helwani this week: “When the Bloodline story started about two months later, I was like, 'Okay, I don't think he's going anywhere.
I think maybe it's time to go in a different direction.' But then, God, it must have been three months too. And then what happened is that the stars finally aligned because Roman and I were kept away from each other for the first few months, although I can't say for sure.
And then finally came SmackDown in Montreal. The Usos are gone, Paul Heyman is gone and the stars aligned and we're finally together on screen and there's great chemistry."
Sami Zayn is a WWE veteran
During an interview with Peter Rosenberg last December, Sami Zayn confessed that Roman Reigns himself loved the idea of working together: “I was also talking about it with Roman.
We were sitting at the caterer one day, and I overheard an interview he did with Ariel Helwani where he was very nice to me and said nice things about me as an on screen character and that he would like to do something along the way with me someday .
We talked and I don't remember exactly how it went, but it was mutual." Speaking on FTR with Dax, Dax Harwood recalled an incident of Zayn being disrespectful towards him and how it didn't sit well with the former. "I did not like him [Sami Zayn] when I first met him, we had our tryout together in June of 2012 and I told him this story but some issues happened.
We were in a hotel together and cops came and started knocking on our doors and he and I, almost simultaneously, opened the door at the same time and he said, 'You know where this guy is' and I said, 'No, I don't know where this guy is'
'Well, you need to find out where he is and he slammed the door' And I'm like, 'This motherfu**er', what I mean? You don't tell me what to do, I don't care if you've been Ring of Honor Champion or whatever," said Harwood.
