Sami Zayn has been working in WWE for a decade now and when it comes to perfecting storylines – he truly has the Midas touch. This was especially true during his time as part of The Bloodline and subsequent feud with Roman Reigns. Now it appears Zayn believes losing to Reigns was just the beginning of a quest that will lead to a World Title win.

The Survivor Series WarGames match helped prove Sami Zayn’s loyalty to The Bloodline. However, that all changed after Zayn ended up betraying Roman Reigns and The Bloodline at the Royal Rumble.

Sami Zayn challenged Roman Reigns for his titles at Elimination Chamber in his hometown of Montreal and ended up losing. He would never go back to the main event scene after that.

While speaking to Xfinity, Sami Zayn was asked about his crushing defeat back in February. Sami Zayn stated that he believes losing to Reigns was just the beginning of a quest that will lead to a World Title win.


It would have been kind of perfect, a storybook ending, if I had dethroned Roman. Sure, of course, but if you look at more five years from now, ten years from now, the totality of where it all lies, I think you will see that it is one great chapter, hopefully, in a story. For sure, unquestionably, whether it was the right or wrong decision, the way it ended, there is no question that had it gone my way that night in Montreal or at WrestleMania or something with Roman, unquestionably it would have been a moment that would have definitely been replayed many times. I still think what we did was very special and as you can see by what has continued to happen with The Usos and Roman, that story still has some special moments. This is one of those things where you just need time to see where it all falls.

“I don’t know if this is a valid comparison, but it’s almost like when Brock (Lesnar) beat Undertaker and ended the streak. It was such a shocking moment that you kind of didn’t know what to make of it. I remember watching it live with Juice Robinson. He was so frazzled by it, ‘I need five years to know whether this was the right call or not.’ It’s kind of true. You had to wait several years to see all the consequences and ripple effect of that moment. It took five years to see ‘this all goes back to do that.’ Maybe it was chapter one, for me personally, in this huge story that is my quest to one day win the big one.”

WWE also knew Sami Zayn wouldn’t last as top guy in the company. Regardless, only time will tell whether Sami Zayn will eventually become a World Champion in Vince McMahon’s company.
