WarGames had an impressive debut on the main roster in WWE. The men’s match between Brawling Brutes, Drew McIntyre, and Kevin Owens vs The Bloodline was full of emotions. Roman Reigns like the ‘Head of Table’ guided his family to victory by trusting his blood and ‘The Honorary Uce’, who became a full-fledged USO. But it came at a cost of his long-term friendship.

The match started when Roman Reigns entered the cage. Every Bloodline member had a goal to protect ‘The Tribal Chief.’ However, Sami Zayn took it personally and protected Reigns at the cost of his 20+ years of friendship with Kevin Owens.

While everyone was in the right ring, Owens and Reigns stumbled over each other in the left ring. They brawled and ‘The Prizefighter’ connected with a stunner and rolled over on him for the pin. Surprisingly, Zayn quickly appeared and pushed the referee, breaking the pin.

Owens then started explaining, ‘The Honorary Uce,’ that The Bloodline isn’t his real family. Unfortunately, Zayn betrayed the former Universal champion after connecting a low blow. Furthermore, in a tense situation, he looked at Reigns and hit Owens with a Helluva Kick that led to The Bloodline picking up the victory by pinning KO.

Zayn and Owens know each other for almost 20 years now. They know each other when the duo wrestled in the bingo halls in their early career. Both WWE stars have been in each other’s successes and losses throughout their wrestling career. It all came to an end at Survivor Series.

From being entitled as ‘The Honorary Uce’, Sami Zayn surely earned the name ‘Sami Uso’. Reigns might announce this on the following week’s RAW or SmackDown. Moreover, the feud between Owens and Zayn has also re-ignited and might go on till next year.
