Jim Cornette Praises Sami Zayn As His “Favourite” WWE Star To Watch

Sami Zayn confronts Jey Uso on WWE SmackDown 2022

The October 28 Friday Night SmackDown was memorable for several reasons, including Uncle Howdy confronting Bray Wyatt and the return to WWE of Emma. If you ask anyone, though, the defining moment of the broadcast was The Bloodline’s segment.

Stemming from Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa losing to Butch and Ridge Holland of The Brawling Brutes, Zayn subsequently stated, directly to Roman Reigns, that Jey Uso hadn’t been feeling “ucey” as of late. The remark drew a hilarious reaction that saw The Bloodline break character; at one stage, Reigns had to pull ‘Main Event’ Jey back in front of the camera.

Sami Zayn Has Made Jim Cornette Feel Ucey

Speaking on the latest Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru podcast, the acclaimed wrestling personality, who previously worked alongside Zayn’s Mexican cousin El Generico in Ring of Honor, explained why Sami Zayn is his current favourite WWE Superstar. His work in The Bloodline is to thank for that:

“Oh, I’ve been feeling Ucey. Let me tell you something. I never thought that I would say this. But I think now Sami Zayn is my favourite person to watch on television. El Generico certainly wasn’t but Sami Zayn is incredible. And this whole thing with The Bloodline and The Usos and Uceys.”

Elaborating, Jim Cornette explained how with the run he’s currently on, he wouldn’t be surprised if Sami Zayn found himself in an Undisputed WWE Universal Championship program vs. Roman Reigns:

“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 was most recently represented at WWE Crown Jewel, where Roman Reigns defended the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Logan Paul. Paul Heyman, The Usos, and Solo Sikoa were all involved with the bout, too.
