“They’re Coming Up With Some Good S**t” – Jim Cornette Praises Sami Zayn ‘Ucey’ Segment

Sami Zayn confronts Jey Uso on WWE SmackDown 2022

The October 28 Friday Night SmackDown saw a hilarious segment involving the entirety of The Bloodline. Stemming from Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa being felled by The Brawling Brutes’ Butch and Ridge Holland, Roman Reigns confronted the group, superficially Jey Uso.

Moments before, Sami Zayn had explained that Jey hadn’t been feeling very “ucey” as of late, a moment that appeared to have caused every Bloodline member to break character. Jey even attempted to turn his face away from the camera before being brought back by ‘The Tribal Chief’.

Jim Cornette Has High Praise For Sami Zayn

Speaking on the latest Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru podcast, Jim Cornette heavily praised everyone involved in the segment, believing that Sami Zayn’s promo, in particular, wouldn’t have been the same had it been written for him instead of an off-the-cuff remark:

“I saw the clips of certain highlights of the programme because of this troublesome changing of schedule in various places. And obviously what everybody was talking about, The Bloodline interview, where [Roman] Reigns and [Paul] Heyman and The Usos and Solo [Sikoa] and Sami [Zayn] came out. And Roman Reigns, in no uncertain terms, told Jey Uso and Sami Zayn to get their sh*t together, bury the hatchet, settle their differences, whatever the case may be.

Everybody needs to be pulling the same rope here in The Bloodline. And Sami Zayn is brilliant, if somebody had written this for him, it wouldn’t have been the same. He delivers it so well because he’s taking the story, he’s taking the content that they’re giving him the point of the thing, but he’s turning it into his own weasel-ish delivery. And he’s such a convincing toadying stooge, flunky type of disingenuous. I mean all the adjectives and nouns and verbs and adverbs you can come up with, he’s great.”

Continuing, Jim Cornette explained how The Bloodline was consistently producing “some good sh*t” across WWE programming because they work together on everything they do:

“You can tell they’ve all worked on this together because it’s not just the writers giving them sh*t. They’re all in on it. They’re working together with it, they’re coming up with some good sh*t. And people want to know what’s going to happen next. And sooner or later Sami Zayn will be a huge babyface and potentially even in a main event against Roman Reigns in some shape or form. But that was a heck of a segment.”

The Bloodline won’t be in full effect for Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship defence against Logan Paul at Crown Jewel, with Sami Zayn not making the journey over to Saudi Arabia. It’s currently unknown if Reigns and Paul Heyman will be joined by Solo Sikoa and The Usos.
