Sami Zayn has been a fundamental part of the WWE, continually striving to surpass his previous achievements. During his time in the company, he has displayed an impressive talent for taking on a range of characters and making them all triumphant, with his most recent accomplishment being his portrayal of The Bloodline. He was unable to beat Roman Reigns at WWE Elimination Chamber, and it seems he has a strange feeling after the event.

Sami Zayn became the biggest babyface in the company thanks to his incredible role in the Bloodline storyline. It all culminated at the Royal Rumble event, where Zayn’s shocking betrayal of Roman Reigns resulted in a brutal and unforgettable beatdown.

During the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event, Sami Zayn challenged Roman Reigns for his titles. Despite his best efforts, Sami Zayn was unable to put down Roman Reigns for the win.


While speaking during the post-Elimination Chamber press conference, Sami Zayn expressed his disappointment at not being able to dethrone Roman Reigns. Zayn made it clear that he had a strange feeling after the show.

So close, but no cigar. So maybe that’s a small part of this strange feeling I get back to. You know, looking out into the crowd after the three counts, looking at their faces, it’s like ‘Oh, this is not fun.” They’re hurt. They were so deflated, but not in an ”Ahhh storyline” sort of deflated, it was like ”Aw, man.” The vibe going into this week, it had this legit big fight, big city, big fight’s in town, our guy is here and they’re chanting Sami and Ole and ‘Fu Roman’ and the concourses before the show starts, there was just a buzz. So it’s almost like if GSP comes back to Montreal, he loses. It was a bit of a downer. Even if the fight was great, that’s what it was, it was a great time.

On a cognitive level, I’m aware that it was awesome. But, I might feel very different if you ask me the same question tomorrow, once I’ve watched it play it. I’d be like ”What was wrong with me? They’re on their feet, we didn’t even touch for five minutes and they were losing it.” Yeah of course it was magic, but at this exact moment, you caught me at a strange time, because I feel strange.

Judging by how Sami Zayn accidentally speared Jey Uso at the show, it is likely WWE will now be going with their original plan of having Zayn and Kevin Owens square off against The Usos at WrestleMania 39.
