Sami Zayn Reflects on WWE Rivalry with Roman Reigns: A Riveting Conclusion

Sami Zayn, the tenacious WWE superstar, recently shared his thoughts on the conclusion of his epic rivalry with "The Tribal Chief," Roman Reigns. In an exclusive interaction with "Xfinity," Zayn opened up about his feelings regarding the outcome and whether he believed he should have been the one to dethrone Reigns as the Undisputed Universal Champion.

Zayn admitted that defeating Reigns and claiming the title would have been a perfect, storybook ending to their intense feud. He acknowledged that such a momentous victory would have been remembered and replayed for years to come, whether it had happened at Elimination Chamber in his hometown of Montreal, Canada, or at the grand stage of WrestleMania.

However, the passionate wrestler also expressed contentment with the way their storyline unfolded. Viewing it from a broader perspective, he saw it as one great chapter in a potentially long and exciting narrative. Zayn believed that in the future, the entire saga with Reigns and the Bloodline would be seen as a remarkable and special part of his career.

Zayn's Hope: Loss to Reigns as Catalyst

Drawing parallels to a historic WWE moment, Zayn likened the significance of his loss to Reigns with Brock Lesnar's shocking victory over The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX, where The Streak was broken.

He acknowledged that the true impact of such monumental events is often revealed over time, and he hoped that his loss to Reigns would be the catalyst for an eventual world title win in WWE. Reflecting on the ongoing developments involving The Usos and Reigns, Zayn saw the continuation of the Bloodline story as evidence of its lasting significance.

He believed that only with the passage of time would the true consequences and significance of the rivalry be fully understood. Despite not capturing the Undisputed Universal title, Zayn found triumph with his partner Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 39, as they successfully defeated The Usos to become the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions.

In the end, Sami Zayn remains optimistic about his future in WWE, seeing the rivalry with Reigns as a stepping stone in his larger journey. Whether it was a victory or a defeat, Zayn knows that each moment contributes to his evolution as a superstar and believes that one day, he will seize the ultimate prize in the world of professional wrestling.
