While there are few more dedicated to their character and presentation in WWE than Roman Reigns, sometimes even the Tribal Chief loses control.
In recent weeks and months Sami Zayn has been on a mission to align himself with The Bloodline. This has seen the former Intercontinental Champion appear in a number of backstage segments with Roman Reigns and The Usos often to great comic effect.
While Reigns and the Undisputed Tag Team Champions are usually presented as being ultra-serious, Zayn’s delusional character provides a spectacular contrast.
This resulted in a hilarious moment on the most recent episode of SmackDown where Zayn’s antics caused both Reigns and Jey Uso to break character. In the segment, Zayn was talking to Reigns about his upcoming match with Drew McIntyre commenting that he’s in his rivals head. Zayn said that not only was he in there, he was making himself comfortable, throwing down a blanket and doing his trademark dance, which he beautifully demonstrated.
As he did so both and Reigns and Jey Uso lost their composure and quickly had to try and hide the fact they were laughing at the star.
Jey Uso breaking here when he’s meant to hate Sami is absolutely tremendous 😂pic.twitter.com/LYJKxMmZkc

In the main event Zayn was ultimately defeated by Drew McIntyre but The Bloodline still emerged on top. Complete with a helping hand from Zayn, Reigns and The Usos utterly demolished McIntyre leaving him sporting a number of painful looking injuries as the show went off the air.
Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is set to meet Drew McIntyre at Clash At The Castle on September 3rd with all of the gold on the line.
