WWE Superstar Sami Zayn made the Bloodline briefly break character during last week’s episode of SmackDown after saying that Jey hasn’t been very “Ucey” as of late.
Zayn spoke to BT Sport about the Bloodline showing kinks in their armor and sometimes going out of his way to make the group break character.
“No no, but you know, that’s just — people have made a big deal out of that, about the fact that they’re seeing little chinks in the armor. But to be honest, I think the reason it’s standing out so much is that it just reminds the fans that the performers are really having fun doing this. And I think it’s something that they sometimes forget, that we’re enjoying doing this too. And there is a real life chemistry between myself and that whole family. And we always have gotten along splendidly. So it’s nice to see that I don’t know, the fans are appreciating getting a window into that a little bit.
“But look,” he continued, “I’ll admit, once or twice, I’m going out of my way to try and get them to crack. But generally, I think that’s something you have to tread cautiously because if you overdo that, it becomes like, you’re just not being professional. You know what I mean? Little bits are good but like anything else, it can be redundant if it’s overdone or if you’re not taking it seriously enough or whatever. We are still trying to tell a story here, but in a weird way it kind of works for the story. Because like I said, it’s a different character bringing this lightness to an otherwise serious group. So I think the reason it works is because it is art initiating life and fitting into the story we’re trying to tell. Otherwise, it would just be completely out of place.”
"We genuinely enjoy doing this"
