• Backstage News On Sami Zayn’s Push Heading Into WrestleMania 39
Sami Zayn has become a vital part of WWE programming every week, thanks to his storyline with Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Bloodline.
However, the original plan for Sami was never to have a long-term storyline with The Bloodline.
Here’s what the Wrestling Observer reported:
“The goal from the Roman Reigns standpoint all along has been to make Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn into stars – bigger stars (than they already are). And that’s actually worked.
But obviously, the original plan was not Sami Zayn (to face Reigns at WrestleMania), and even as late as a couple of weeks ago, they were trying to find something to not be Sami Zayn. This was not the long term plan of, ‘Roman Reigns / Sami Zayn WrestleMania main event’.
The plan was not Sami Zayn becomes a superstar, the plan was just do a few key things with Sami Zayn then we’ll ditch him and get rid of him, and because it clicked, to their credit, they saw that it clicked and it was like, ‘Well let’s make him a star this year, or this season’, and that’s what happened.”
As we have reported before, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens are expected to reunite and face The Usos for the Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania 39.
