After Paul Heyman produced videos that painted Sami Zayn in a poor light, things appeared grim for the former Intercontinental Champion. Heyman pointed to Zayn as the betrayer of The Bloodline. Zayn responded and said Heyman’s accusations hurt him and ended his brief promo by saying he had no defense. This prompted an angry response from Roman Reigns, who called Zayn out for being egoistic and ordered Solo Sikoa to attack Zayn.

But just as Sikoa was going for the devastating spike to the throat, Jey Uso, of all the people, stepped up and saved him. Jey Uso then displayed the videos, which showed how many times Zayn helped The Bloodline in recent months, including when he brutally took down Kevin Owens at Survivor Series.

In the promo, Reigns said, ” I don’t want to see you again until Saturday at the Royal Rumble, do you understand me?…. Go home and I will see you at the Royal Rumble and that is where you are gonna deliver your final test.”
