Despite not wrestling on a full-time basis anymore, The Undertaker watches the current product and wholeheartedly follows the new generation. He recently heavily praised The Bloodline's Sami Zayn ahead of the Royal Rumble.
With the exception of Jey Uso, The Bloodline is currently in a difficult position as they have lost faith in Sami Zayn. The Honorary Uce has taken several bullets for the stable but was helpless on numerous occasions when he came face-to-face with Kevin Owens.
Last night, Zayn was unable to protect Solo Sikoa from Kevin Owens' wrath on SmackDown. Meanwhile, The Undertaker has enjoyed the former Intercontinental Champion as a part of the stable on television. Speaking to Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, the WWE Hall of Famer praised Zayn's performance with the stable:
"I'm really eyeing right now, Sami [Zayn] what he's doing. And it's the perfect offset to Roman and The Usos. It's just perfect. It's different, right? And it cracks me up watching him crack them those guys up and them trying to keep their composure. That whole thing has been done so well."
It will be interesting to see what's next for Sami Zayn after the Royal Rumble premium live event.
