Roman Reigns & Sami Zayn Segment

And if you thought The Bloodline was unstoppable before, and we were, now there is an enforcer to ensure Roman’s Reign on the throne of The Island Of Relevancy, and that enforcer is Solo. Which opens up Jimmy and Jey Uso to concentrate on their pursuit of greatness, on their pursuit of history. It opens up The Usos in their pursuit of immortality.

Roman Reigns: I like you, Sami, but who are you talking for right now? Why are you saying anything right now? I get it. I’ve been seeing what’s happening here, but like, why do you have our shirt on? What’s going on here, man? Why do you got our shirt on? Why are you tagging along this whole thing? What’s this about? What do you want? Well, I’ll tell you what I want. I want you to take that shirt off.

Sami Zayn: Roman, I don’t know if you’re kidding or if you’re not kidding, but if this is about what happened with Logan Paul last week, I can explain, okay? Just don’t make any rash decisions.

Roman Reigns: Last week, Logan Paul, when you disrespected the wise man. We’re talking about last week. Sami, I’m not going to tell you again. Take our shirt off, now.

– Jey rips off Zayn’s shirt.

Roman Reigns: See, this is what I’m talking about here. I need you to listen for once. I don’t want to see you in that shirt ever again, do you understand me? You ain’t never gonna wear a Bloodline shirt, ever again. You ain’t never gonna wear it again, because I got you a new one.
