Sami Zayn Claims Honorary Uce Segment Might Be One Of The Best Of His Career

Sami Zayn

The September 23 broadcast of Friday Night SmackDown featured one of WWE’s most acclaimed segments in recent memory. Seemingly being ejected from The Bloodline, Sami Zayn was instead made an ‘Honorary Uce’ of the group, much to the delight of fans and critics alike.

Zayn has flourished since aligning himself with the Roman Reigns-helmed faction, so the possibility of this ending was disappointing. Instead, though, ‘The Master Strategist’ has grown stronger, making almost every member of the group break character on live television.

Sami Zayn Thinks Highly Of The Honorary Uce Segment

Speaking with BT Sport ahead of WWE Crown Jewel on November 5, Sami Zayn has sung the praises of the aforementioned segment, stating how it’s difficult to do anything memorable due to the sheer amount of solid work he’s producing:

“When we did that whole segment, I guess the nicer answer would be to say that, ‘No, I didn’t expect that at all.’ But actually I knew that if we did it right, this would be a very, very memorable segment. I think when it’s all said and done, I think people will remember that segment for many many years to come, which is the hardest thing to do, in my opinion at this stage in the industry.

We have a lot of content, and we have a lot of great performers. So it used to be hard to just do something good. Now it’s even harder to do something memorable because there’s so much good stuff and not a lot of it sticks out, which is a good problem to have. When there’s so much good content that you have to be exceptional to be remembered for years to come.”

Elaborating, Sami Zayn stated how the moment was actually one of the greatest of his career, comparing his relationship with The Bloodline to that of Batista and Randy Orton, and The Rock’n’Sock Connection:

“I think this segment was one of those things that people will remember, hopefully the way they remember what you were talking about, Batista and [Randy] Orton, and The Rock’n’Sock [Connection] and all that kind of stuff. I hope it goes down like that.

I hope before this is all said and done that we got a couple more segments like that, that people will remember for years to come. But you know what, it might have been the best in-ring kind of segment in terms of memorability that I might have done, actually. Just the ride that it took people on is what I’m so happy about.”

Sami Zayn last competed on the October 14 SmackDown, besting Kofi Kingston of The New Day.
