“A beautiful & historic moment” – Sami Zayn reflects on Roman Reigns giving him a gift on WWE SmackDown
Former Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn recently reflected on Roman Reigns gifting him the ‘Honorary Uce’ t-shirt on WWE SmackDown last Friday.
During the show’s opening segment, fans were swerved into thinking that The Bloodline would turn on Zayn. The latter was ordered to remove the faction’s t-shirt that he’d been wearing for months.
The Tribal Chief then handed him a new shirt specifically made for him, and they embraced in the ring. It looks like the former Intercontinental Champion is officially an honorary member of The Bloodline.
A fan on Twitter posted an edited video containing a portion of the segment with the caption “Best storyline in pro wrestling right now.” Sami Zayn responded by describing the moment as “beautiful and historic.”
“A beautiful & historic moment that’ll be remembered for years to come,” said Zayn.

The Bloodline is undeniably the most dominant faction in the entire industry right now. The Usos are the reigning Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, while Solo Sikoa is a former NXT North American Champion. To top this, Roman Reigns is the current and inaugural Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Sami Zayn receiving the t-shirt was a special moment, and the WWE Universe enjoyed it a lot. The three-time Intercontinental Champion has been by the side of the group for a while, and this came as his crowning moment.
