Sami Zayn committed the ultimate crime in the eyes of The Bloodline by not following Roman Reigns’ orders and betraying The Tribal Chief with a massive chair shot to his back. This effectively ended his run as ‘The Honorary Uce’ and Zayn suffered the wrath of Roman’s family for his actions. However, that clip has got a life of its own, smashing viewership records in just 24 hours.

WWE uploaded the clip of Sami Zayn smashing Roman Reigns’ back with a steel chair on YouTube. Within 24 hours, the video achieved a viewership of nearly 2 Million, and the numbers are continuously increasing as of now.
This turn of events came at the heights of the growing tensions within the internal structure of The Bloodline. The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, had just concluded in the Tribal court hearing of Sami Zayn, that he gave Zayn one more opportunity at the Royal Rumble to prove his innocence.
Roman Reigns asked The Bloodline to stay back in the locker room and opted for only Sami Zayn and Paul Heyman to accompany him for his match. Reigns faced Kevin Owens with the Undisputed WWE Universal championship on the line in the main event.
The Head of the Table diffused the fury of the PrizeFighter and retained his championships, laying a beat down on Kevin Owens alongside the Bloodline post-match. Roman Reigns then ordered Sami Zayn to put the final nail in the coffin and smash a handcuffed Kevin Owens with a chair. Then Zayn made a shocking decision and hit Roman Reigns instead with the chair, effectively betraying The Bloodline.
Sami Zayn’s actions earned him a massive pop in the Alamodome and of course, the numbers on the internet show how much the WWE universe appreciated it. This could possibly lead Sami Zayn somewhere close to the main event of WrestleMania 39, something the fans will be delighted to see.
