Paul Heyman has addressed the possibility of adding Naomi to The Bloodline on television given her marriage to SmackDown Tag Team Champion, Jimmy Uso.
The Bloodline of Roman Reigns and The Usos, with their Special Counsel Paul Heyman, have run roughshod over SmackDown in the past few months. Since The Usos have been brought back into the fold with Reigns after initially feuding with the Tribal Chief, they have dominated the tag team division and claimed the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
Speaking to the New York Post, Paul Heyman was asked about the possibility of adding former SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi to the group’s presentation given her obvious familial connection:
“I don’t look at only one person as a potential addition to The Bloodline. I think there is a daily assessment as to what The Bloodline needs and what the presentation requires on television. At the moment I think we are addressing the enormous box office attractions that are now coming back seemingly all the time against the Tribal Chief and the fact that The Usos, who are reigning defending SmackDown tag team champions, are being pushed to the limit by the best tag team to come along besides The Usos in the past 20 years, the Street Profits.”
“We’re telling quite a few stories right now. As the year continues and we get into 2022, are there more stories to tell involving other personalities? I’m sure that there are. And just because someone is not on television with us doesn’t mean they’re not within eyesight of The Bloodline and doesn’t mean they’re not a member of The Bloodline. It just means we’re not presenting them on TV as such.”
Paul Heyman also recently discussed how he felt about working the SmackDown show on the 13th of September 2001, just two days after the 9/11 attacks devastated his hometown of New York City.
