Nevertheless, Rhodes and Sami Zayn started the path to take down The Bloodline. While Zayn had Kevin Owens, the former TNT Champion was alone in this fight. While the former ‘Dashing Rhodes’ will take care of his Brock Lesnar problem, Zayn and Owens are the top guys in the tag team division.

The former WWE writer also had a view on how the new Undisputed Tag Team Champions’ future will be. He claimed they will eventually separate soon while Rhodes will chase Roman Reigns after Lesnar if there are similar plans.

He said, “And in the meantime, Sami and Kevin can tell their story until they eventually break up again, right? I can’t ever keep Sami and Kevin together for that long.”

Prinze added, “It’s just they’re both too good. To not go at each other. No matter how many times they fight, I’ll watch it. So hopefully that’s the plan.”

While WWE has already sowed the seeds between The Usos and Bloodline, Jimmy and Jey will come after Zayn and Owens.
