Congrats to the WrestleMania 39 Night 1 winners, especially Rhea Ripley dethroning Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Womens Championship and the NEW Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn!
We were treated to a fiery, passionate promo between Sami Zayn and Cody Rhodes on this week’s WWE RAW. Roman Reigns eventually put out the fire by responding like a true boss, saying them having a pep rally to convince each other that they can beat him already puts them in a position where they don’t stand a chance. Regardless, these two incredible WWE Superstars have all the momentum in the world right now, that anyone of them can believably win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship from the Tribal Chief.
The Usos vs. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens is a real possibility for WrestleMania 39, so that lessens Sami’s chances of winning against Roman. If I was HHH though, I’d take advantage of Zayn’s incredible popularity now and make him champion at Elimination Chamber. Cody’s bound to have his moment at some point, and having him beat Reigns is kinda predictable in my opinion. I say Roman can regain one of the titles after the WWE Draft, and have the 1on1 match against Cody at Summerslam. Whether Sami wins this Saturday or not, Roman’s days as champion are really numbered, like Sami has said.
This saga between The Bloodline, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens has been SOOOO GOOD. To some people like me, you want to add another swerve chapter prolong this storyline, but I understand that the majority are already wanting the Sami Uso beatdown from the hands of Roman Reigns, Usos and Solo Sikoa. That way, Sami could become the biggest babyface in WWE (even bigger than Bray Wyatt and Cody Rhodes), and ultimately dethrone either Roman Reigns or The Usos (reconnecting with KO). I smell a swerve of some unexpected proportions, with Jey Uso showing brotherly love to Sami Zayn—or perhaps, Kevin Owens pulls off a landscape-altering upset tonight against The Tribal Chief and win the coveted Undisputed WWE Championship.
Tomorrow, one thing’s for sure—the wheels will fall off, and begin the long, difficult road to WrestleMania 39 for one, two, or everyone involved in the biggest storyline WWE is telling right now.
It might still be early, but I’m already feelin’ the Royal Rumble season! It is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing and anticipated events in WWE history, as the winner on the Mens Rumble potentially becomes the chosen one (literally) to finally dethrone Roman Reigns as Undisputed Champion at WrestleMania 39. Also, it’s a toss-up between Becky Lynch or Rhea Ripley since these two have the most momentum right now. Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey is already a lock, so Becky might not even need to win the Women’s Rumble, as Rhea will certainly benefit more from it. Charlotte is also in the play, as she’s almost certain to come back at the event and possibly score another Rumble win. Sasha Banks might be a long shot right now, but with HHH at the helm, you can never be so sure. A lot can happen between now and up to January 28, 2023.
Speaking of the Road to WrestleMania 39, there’s talk about the Tribal Chief defending both his titles in separate WrestleMania nights, with either the WWE Championship or Universal Championship in night 1, and the other in night 2. I dig it. Here’s why.
Rumors are circling around that The Rock is being considered to win next year’s Royal Rumble. You can have him go after the Universal Championship, since he hasn’t won that one yet. That’s a money-making move in WWE’s part, since it’ll definitely cross mainstream media and bring more eyes to the product. However, as far as building a new megastar is concerned, I’d rather go with Cody Rhodes or Sami Zayn. For Cody, the story writes itself, not to mention he also has a little bit of mainstream/Hollywood appeal. Sami Zayn—we all know how this can play out. Him and Kevin Owens can go after the Usos for the Tag Team Championships and there’s nothing wrong with that..but I prefer that Sami goes ‘Solo’ on this one and become the ultimate babyface for WWE, 2023 and beyond. Have either Sami or Cody challenge for Roman’s WWE Championship. Another scenario is for Roman to retain against The Rock, then the next night (post-WrestleMania RAW), have Sami somehow get a title shot against Roman and he beats him for the Universal Championship. Imagine how hot the crowd will be for that one!
Next year’s Royal Rumble is shaping up to be a treat to WWE Universe. John Cena—believed to be announcing his Royal Rumble entry at the end of the year, Kevin Owens and even Solo Sikoa could potentially win the event, long shot as it may be for them. As for my personal picks, I’ll go with those who have built quite a momentum this year: Rhea Ripley and Sami Zayn. Becky Lynch and Cody Rhodes are already main event players, they’ll find a way to become champions somehow.
It’s time for HHH to prove that he can create future WWE icons, and next year’s Rumble is the perfect place for him to do it.
The most gripping storyline in WWE TV today, bar none. Sami’s inclusion to the Bloodline’s family drama is turning out to be the most intriguing storyline of 2022—sorry, it ain’t the CM Punk-Elite backstage fight. With Sami making the difficult choice of turning against Kevin Owens (though they’ve turned on each other a couple of times already), the Honorary Uce might just’ve solidified his position in the group and that honorary tag can be removed now, as he’s become a full-blown UCE! Jey even gave him one heck of a hug at the end of WarGames that drew a huge pop by the WWE Universe.
Kevin is racing against time. He’s desperate to make Sami see the truth. The Bloodline has reached the peak of their dominance, with all the members wholly accepting Sami Zayn last night. So, would that mean it’ll be time to go down soon? Kevin Owens will play a critical part in making sure that happens.
Last night at SmackDown, The Bloodline, together with the Honorary Uce Sami Zayn, created one of the most epic segments ever in WWE history. It was filled with all kinds of emotions, from Solo/Usos/Sami fearing Roman’s wrath, Sami trying to apologize, Jey not giving a damn about what the Tribal Chief says, and most importantly, everyone in the Bloodline breaking characters because of Sami Zayn. Jey, though ‘not very Ucey’ at that point, was really trying hard to contain his laughter—Roman was able to play it off from the initial character break. The segment turned out to be another golden moment in this storyline. This was Hollywood Rock-The Hurricane level of epicness. Everyone involved in this is having a great time, and that resonates with the WWE Universe as well. Great job, HHH and co.
Sami Zayn is gold, man. Solo Sikoa, who arguably is even more serious than Roman Reigns, was also a victim of Zayn’s antics weeks ago. Last night, Jimmy did a pretty good job of hiding his laughter but was still caught smiling a couple of times by the cameraman. Roman has broken character twice already, while Jey, who supposedly hates Sami, has been caught multiple times already lol.
At some point, there’s a good chance that Sami will be acknowledged as a full-blown Uso. Yup, Sami Uso y’all. However, we know how this story will end. It may be hard to watch and emotions will be stirred, but it’ll all be for Sami Zayn’s ultimate babyface turn.
The ongoing storyline involving The Bloodline and a little bit of Zayn-Owens reunion tease, the WWE Universe is expecting that it’ll lead down to an eventual Sami-Bloodline falling out. Owens and Zayn will then challenge The Usos at on or before WrestleMania 39 for the Undisputed Tag Team Championships. That’s good and all, but here’s a better idea—Sami Zayn as Universal Champion (with a clean haircut pls) while Kevin Owens wins the WWE Championship. How that plays out, I still have no idea. One thing is for sure, WWE has a legitimate chance to solidify Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn as megastars, especially Sami since the WWE Universe has been behind him for quite some time now. He’s on the brink of a HUGE babyface turn. Also, Roman vs. Rock without the titles will still be the main event no matter what.
I’d totally welcome these 2 men as WWE and Universal Champions since they’ve really earned their keep with their stellar character work, through pandemic and all. Being Undisputed Tag Champs isn’t bad at all, and we’re about to get a Cody Rhodes return at the Rumble (though I think a championship reign for him can wait), so HHH needs to pull the trigger soon and give Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn what they truly deserve: the two main titles. Either they enter WrestleMania 39 as champs, or both of them win the championships at the event.
Hands down, this is the best storyline in wrestling planet right now. The emotions involved in last week’s SmackDown segment, man, it was really a rollercoaster alright. Everyone thought The Bloodline would finally turn on Sami and break his heart. He pulled some Oscars acting out of his bag and had everyone in the world empathizing him and cheering for him at the same time. The inevitable will happen, of course. Roman, together with the whole Bloodline family, will surely kick poor Sami Zayn out of the group in the near future. For now though, he’s been officially bestowed as the Honorary Uce, and Sami couldn’t be any happier. The utter disgust on Jey’s face added another unforgettable (and meme-worthy) layer to the segment—props to him too!
Everyone is expecting Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens to become a tag team at some point, most likely right before WrestleMania, and finally take the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions off The Usos. That’s most likely the scenario that will play out, but I have a different idea. 😉
Here’s some wallpaper goodness for your screens, inspired from The Usos’ AR graphics during their entrance. Jey Uso will not be happy with this!
I’d like to see some work-in-progress of Sami Zayn’s documentary lol. Seriously though, this is probably one of the finest works by Sami. I’ll admit, at first, I wasn’t a fan of the conspiracy-against-me gimmick, it was annoying. But that’s exactly what Sami needs to do as a heel, and it really worked. Even though it’s turning into a comedic act at times, Sami still works the character to perfection. I think, at some point, the fans will get behind him again and rally with him, against these so-called ‘conspiracies’. After all, rebellious characters tend to get over if given a consistent platform to showcase their cause and personality–and Sami Zayn is getting both in each SmackDown episode.
Maybe a heel Sami vs. Edge at SummerSlam later this year can push him to the main event scene..or even better yet, as a rebellious face vs. Roman Reigns–the best representation of WWE’s ‘favoritism’ in some of the WWE Universe’s eyes. At that point though, he needs to be taken seriously to even have a shot at dethroning either Edge or Roman Reigns. Slowly but surely, Sami Zayn is building momentum. 2021 might be just his best year, yet.
