Sami Zayn has explained how his real life dynamic with The Usos influenced his role in the Bloodline.
Since earning the trust of the Bloodline at Survivor Series WarGames, Sami Zayn and Jey Uso have been ‘getting Ucey’ with a new handshake.
Speaking with Peter Rosenberg, Zayn revealed that the handshake isn’t knew, and that it was their real handshake before they brought it to WWE TV.
Discussing his friendship with The Usos, Zayn said:
“These dynamics that we sort of splintered off to with Jimmy and Jey, they’re like, there’s a certain element, not to say Jey is like the angry one or anything.
“It’s a story we’ve told for six months, but Jimmy really is a laid back dude. The relationship that we had on screen is very, very similar to the relationship we have backstage.
“So there was a funny thing that I just saw, where it was a video from, I think, 2019 or 2020, of us doing the handshake because that’s our real life handshake.
“Then I saw these people like, ‘Oh, this isn’t just something they did for the story. This isn’t just something they’re doing for TV. This is their actual greeting that they do in the locker room.’
“The Usos have cool handshakes with a lot of people. They’re the coolest, most universally adored people, and everyone has a rapport with them.
“Our handshake also evolved. It started out as one thing and then it turned into something else.
“But all this to say, that handshake has been our thing for, you know, many, many years and then it just found its way onto TV.”
Zayn also revealed how long ago his Bloodline run was pitched to him, which you can read more about right here.
