After a prolonged saga, issues lastly got here to a head between Reigns and Zayn on the pay-per-view, writing one other chapter within the compelling story of The Bloodline.
Zayn first tried to align himself with the group early final yr, and whereas the likes of Reigns and Jey had been initially hesitant, he was ultimately named Honorary Uce after a number of situations of serving to them out.
The Canadian seemingly took an enormous step towards changing into an official member of The Bloodline at Survivor Sequence WarGames when he hit longtime buddy Owens with a low blow and allowed Jey to pin him.
That act allowed Zayn to realize Jey’s acceptance, however Reigns remained cautious of the newcomer’s affiliation with KO, so he continued to place him by means of checks so as to see how loyal he was.
Zayn was within the champion’s nook for the primary occasion of the Royal Rumble when Reigns defended his titles in opposition to Owens.
It was clear all through that The Grasp Strategist was torn, and at one level he did not need to hand The Tribal Chief a metal chair, however he ultimately did and Reigns went on to beat KO to retain the titles.
After the match, Reigns handcuffed Owens to the ropes and Bloodline members took turns brutally beating him. When the twin titleholder was about to hit his defenseless opponent within the head with a metal chair, Zayn stopped him.
He mentioned doing that was beneath Reigns, which prompted The Tribal Chief to demand he hit KO with the chair. Zayn could not convey himself to do it, so he struck Reigns with it as a substitute after which acquired jumped by Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa.
On the February 3 version of SmackDown, Zayn attacked Reigns and made it clear that he wished to beat him for the undisputed WWE common title. The Tribal Chief acquired the higher hand because of Jimmy and Solo, although, after which accepted the problem.
The champion confused the significance of beating Zayn in entrance of his family in Montreal and eradicating him from WWE as soon as and for all.
Reigns did certainly retain his titles at Elimination Chamber, however it’s extremely unlikely that the story between Zayn and The Bloodline is over.
