WWE Superstar Sami Zayn credits surprising name for helping him join The Bloodline

Sami Zayn recently credited his getting into The Bloodline to his feud with Johnny Knoxville. The Hollywood star had a heated rivalry with the WWE Superstar in 2022, leading to a match between the two at WrestleMania 38, which Knoxville won.

In an interview with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Zayn opened up about his feud with Johnny Knoxville. He further explained how it led to him joining The Bloodline:

"That was really like a precursor to The Bloodline. I mean quite literally actually because that story and the humiliation coming out of that match was what, from a character perspective, and from a storyline perspective, was like the fuel for the respect that the character needed to seek out [of] The Bloodline. But in another sort of way, from a creative perspective, it was a precursor because of just the mental energy and the creative juices and all that into how to construct a story and how to get us there," Zayn said.

Sami Zayn has been on an incredible run after defeating Gunther at The Showcase of the Immortals. It remains to be seen what lies ahead for the WWE Superstar following his recent win over the Alpha Academy leader in Glasgow.
