In the world of professional wrestling, is there anyone happier than Sami Zayn?
The simple answer: No. Not at all. Not even close.
During last Friday’s WWE SmackDown, The Bloodline (Roman Reigns, Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman and Sami Zayn) made an in-ring appearance for a promo. After the “Tribal Chief” said what he had to say, Reigns’ music started playing and The Bloodline started to exit the ring. And then Sami Zayn started speaking.
Roman Reigns, also holding a microphone, was quick to interrupt Zayn, asking why he was even talking to begin with. Then, Reigns stated that he was never going to wear a Bloodline shirt again, with Jey Uso then tearing the current shirt of the faction off of him to make Zayn think he was being exiled from the power Samoan stable.
However, Reigns would reveal everything to be a joke, actually welcoming Zayn into The Bloodline as an “Honorary Uce” and giving him a shirt with the label on it to make it official. Not just that, but the faction also put his “SZ” initials on the shirt as well, verifying his status.
Afterwards, Zayn would acknowledge Reigns as his “Tribal Chief,” followed by the former Intercontinental Champion giving the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion a hug, with Reigns reciprocating Zayn. The entire Bloodline loved it, with the exception of Jey Uso who showed distaste for the interaction, never really being a fan of Zayn to begin with.
Despite the negativity from Jey, The Bloodline celebrated Sami Zayn officially becoming a member of the Anoa’i family faction. With Zayn in particular, he’s still celebrating on social media, even showing a little emotion about his “Tribal Chief” and new faction.
The Master Strategist took to his Instagram to share the moment between him and Reigns, playing “A Moment Like This” by Kelly Clarkson over a video of the two.

Up next on The Bloodline’s schedule in regards to defending Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship is at Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The “Tribal Chief” squares off against Logan Paul, who recently began a feud with Reigns and his Samoan mafia.
WWE’s Crown Jewel Premium Live Event is set for Saturday, November 5.
