According to WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler, Roman Reigns doesn’t really respect Sami Zayn despite the recent developments.
Last week on SmackDown, the undisputed WWE Universal Champion gifted Zayn an ‘Honorary You’ T-shirt. While many believe that the Canadian star cemented her position in The Bloodline, others believe that the segment was part of a longer conspiracy theories of the regime.
Speaking on SmackDown Lowdown, Lawler — while in character — had some harsh words for Zayn:
“He’s sitting there talking about how Bloodline respects him? Come on, Sami Zayn! They see you as a waste of skin, and never take that shirt off again. Because when you didn’t have a shirt, So you looked like one of those babies who just fell from the nest and didn’t have wings.”
As noted by the WWE legend, Jay Uso tore a Bloodline T-shirt from Zayn’s body on SmackDown, causing him to drop out of the group. However, Reigns later revealed that it was all a hoax by gifting Zayn ‘Honorary You’ merchandise.
Despite the segment’s optimistic ending, Lawler warned the 38-year-old about his future:
“If you think for a minute that Roman Reigns respects you, Sami Zayn… I don’t know what it is yet, but he’s preparing you for some kind of catastrophic disaster. Trust me , take my word for that.”
