In a recent interview with the Daily Star, All Elite Wrestling’s Chris Jericho heaped praise Sami Zayn’s recent work with Roman Reigns and The Bloodline. The Bloodline saga has been regarded as one of the most compelling stories in professional wrestling over the past several years, and it has only gotten better with the addition of Sami Zayn.
The former AEW World Champion called for Zayn to be the one eventually dethrone his Tribal Chief, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
He also cited similarities between The Bloodline saga and his story with Kevin Owens heading into WrestleMania 33, noting the importance of organic and long-term storytelling in professional wrestling.
Here’s what Chris Jericho had to say:
On Sami Zayn’s organic rise: “I don’t watch WWE just from a time standpoint, but I follow, and I think that story is awesome because it’s organic. They didn’t plan it to be that big. Sami is the perfect example of an organic character that the fans made into a star, and I think it all started last year at WrestleMania with the Johnny Knoxville match at WrestleMania which was brilliant.“
On why Sami Zayn must be the one to dethrone Roman Reigns: “If I was booking WWE, the main event of WrestleMania would be Roman Reigns vs Sami Zayn and Sami goes over. You can bring in Rock, you can put Cody [Rhodes] in the position and bring in Austin, but much like Jericho and Owens, Sami and Roman is the story that’s been grown and built. The pay-off needs to be Sami winning. That’s what I would do.“
