The Bloodline has been a very dominant faction for almost two years now for a variety of reasons. Comprising Roman Reigns, The Usos and Solo Sikoa, the faction has run roughshod over WWE for a long time. After all, almost every member of the group is a champion. That being said, it seems Eric Bischoff believes The Bloodline Storyline is far better than the nWo.
The Bloodline storyline continues to be a gripping one, as fans stay glued to the TV screen whenever they are there. This is largely due to how Sami Zayn has been the heart and soul of the whole storyline.
In fact, due to The Bloodline being such a dominant Faction, they have been compared to nWo, which remains one of the most legendary factions in the history of professional wrestling.
While speaking on 83 Weeks, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff addressed The Bloodline being compared to the nWo. Bischoff stated that he believes The Bloodline Storyline is far better than the nWo.
The truth is The Bloodline story, in terms of a storyline in and the ingredients and the elements and the discipline and the structure and the nature of it, is a far better story than the NWO,” Bischoff said. “Will it have the same impact on the industry as the NWO did? Probably not. But, that has a lot to do with timing. There are so many things that made the NWO work, including Hulk Hogan turning heel, by the way. There were so many things that were just a moment in time that helped propel that storyline at that, that time that you can’t replicate that today.”
WWE already has huge plans for The Bloodline, especially during Sami Zayn’s match against Roman Reigns for his titles at the Elimination Chamber premium live event on February 18. We’ll have to wait and see how the match will turn out.
