Sami Zayn becomes an official member of The Bloodline’s family
Sami Zayn proved his loyalty to the Bloodline this past weekend at WWE Survivor Series. Furthermore, it was Zayn’s assist that led to Roman Reigns hitting a thunderous on Kevin Owens sealing the victory.

It now seems that all the members of the dominant faction are feeling ‘Ucey’ on the same level.
