Sami Zayn hugs Roman Reigns

After a late change of plans, Roman Reigns and The Bloodline put Sami Zayn on trial on the January 23rd episode of Monday Night Raw.

Hulk Hogan opened the show and introduced the festivities but the serious business was quick to begin. Roman Reigns and the rest of The Bloodline came to the ring to begin the trial of Sami Zayn.

Roman Reigns Saves Sami Zayn

Seated at the head of the table, Reigns handed over the microphone to Paul Heyman who handled the case for the prosecution. Heyman showed “evidence” on the big screen of Zayn not standing by The Bloodline and even siding with Kevin Owens.

In defence, Zayn said that he had no defence and simply sat down. This angered Reigns even further and he ordered Solo Sikoa to attack Zayn but Jey Uso jumped in to save Zayn.

Jey Uso then showed his own clips to prove that Zayn was Bloodline through and through. He went on to vouch for Zayn, much to the delight of the crowd.

This led to Roman Reigns finally handing down his judgement. Sami Zayn was found not guilty, but only for now. Reigns said that he needed Zayn to prove himself adding that he would face one more test at the Royal Rumble.

Zayn was quickly back in action as he helped The Usos retain the Raw Tag Team Titles against Judgment Day. During the bout, Jimmy Uso suffered a leg injury and Zayn stepped in to take his place. After appearing on the edge of defeat on numerous occasions Zayn and Jey Uso delivered a 1D to score the win.

Elsewhere on the show, The Undertaker shared a special moment in the ring with Bray Wyatt as the WWE Hall of Famer appeared to pass the torch to the younger man.
