Sami Zayn undoubtedly has the golden touch regarding any gimmick given to him in WWE. Zayn has managed to elevate himself with every gimmick given to him, especially his current one. In fact, even The Miz compared Zayn’s character to a popular character from ‘The Office.’

Sami Zayn’s storyline with The Bloodline began several months ago and it became one of the most intricate storylines in years. In fact, even Jim Cornette gave Zayn a ton of props, which Zayn didn’t expect whatsoever.

While speaking to Brian Baumgartner for his Off The Beat podcast, The Miz talked about Sami Zayn’s current character in WWE and compared him to Michael Scott from ‘The Office.’

Michael Scott is the lead. Every story can revolve around him, right? So I would say gosh, it’d have to be like Roman Reigns or a John Cena. Granted it’s not the comedy aspect of [the character], it’s not the airhead aspect of it. I wouldn’t call him airhead but you know what I’m talking about like, he’s just so absurd. So I would say as a lead actor, you’d have to have like a Cena or Roman Reigns as your Michael Scott. But with the comedy aspect, I mean Sami Zayn is doing some really funny stuff in WWE. The whole show can revolve around his character, so he could also be that Michael Scott.”


Sami Zayn also compared his current storyline with The Bloodline to Breaking Bad. We will have to wait and see how The Bloodline’s storyline will progress, as WWE certainly has a lot of things planned for it.

Do you think Sami Zayn will betray The Bloodline in the future? Sound off in the comments!
