Sami Zayn Reflects On The Bloodline Story Following WrestleMania 39 Main Event WWE

The first night of WrestleMania 39 is now in the books, and the main event of the show saw the Usos take on Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship.

Owens and Zayn ended the historic reign of the Usos, causing the first major crack in the armor of the Bloodline.

The four men have been a key part of the story over the past year, and Sami Zayn reflected on the story in the WrestleMania press conference.

He said:

“There are hall of famers, world champions multiple times over, I’m talking some of the best ever that have never got to tell a story like this, over this course of time, with this level of depth, with this many talented individuals in front and in back of the camera, especially on the performance side of it. I feel so lucky to have been a part of it.

“This feels like the culmination of it, but it’s a long timeline with WWE, so even if you think you’ve put a nice bow on it, we can unravel that at any time and call back to it. That’s been the beauty of this story, the number of callbacks. So much of it would not have worked with any other individuals. It had to be the Usos and Roman because that is a legitimate, lifelong relationship. It had to be Kevin because that is a legitimate 20-year friendship. Without that level of reality bleeding into the story, it just wouldn’t work.

“One of the things that I take a lot of pride in with this story over the past year is…I do think it transcended the classical wrestling storyline. It’s a glimpse into, because of its effectiveness, it could be a glimpse of what storylines going forward, if not achieve, will at least aspire to, in my opinion. Much like you saw with television, how it kind of evolved with the golden age of television in the 2000s with HBO and things like that, and more complex and layered characters. To do this story, if I may be so bold to offer a comparison, it’s almost like the Sopranos. It is, to WWE, what the Sopranos was to television. If I may be so bold to make that comparison.
