The Bloodline story involving the “Honorary UCE” Sami Zayn reached a critical conflict point when Sami Zayn betrayed The Tribal Cheif Roman Reigns and hit him with a steel chair to save his longtime friend Kevin Owens.
The night did not end well for Sami Zayn and KO as both were beaten and violently assaulted by members of The Bloodline.
“WWE officials feel they have caught lighting in a bottle with Sami Zayn. This is the YES movement over again.” WWE sources tell SW and now WWE higher ups are reconsidering one of the WrestleMania 39 main events.
WWE officials feel that the Sami Zayn character is too hot right now and placing him in the main event against Roman Reigns in front of a lava hot WrestleMania crowd would be a legendary moment for the ages.
WWE officials are considering all options before pulling the trigger on making Roman Reigns vs Sami Zayn official.
The original plan was Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens vs The USO’s for the WWE tag-team championships which we reported (read below) way back on 11/24/22 but now with the resurgence and popularity of Sami Zayn WWE is considering on capitalizing on this opportunity.
WWE originally had other plans for WrestleMania night one and two with Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes being the first planned and the other Roman Reigns vs The Rock.
WWE and The Rock remain in communication which we recently reported (read below) and the latest is that The Rock did not want to commit to a two month long WrestleMania build that would require him to appear at scheduled RAW and SmackDown episode tapings due to the XFL launching soon. The Rock remains interested in a Roman Reigns match but single appearance is what he is leaning to.
Meanwhile WWE is heavily considering Sami Zayn getting his moment in the Sun in the main event of WrestleMania that would blow the roof off SoFi stadium.
WWE is also gauging if this would take the momentum away from Cody Rhodes who won the 2023 Royal Rumble. Again WWE is considering all options and Sami Zayn in the main event is a real possibility.
Honorary UCE to WWE champion ?.. say it ain’t so. Stay tuned to SW for the latest updates.
