Wrestling veteran Dutch Mantel feels that Roman Reigns may soon oust Sammy Zayn from The Bloodline.
Sami was in a match against Butch for the SmackDown World Cup this week, but could not come away with the win. Things took a turn for the worse at the end of the match when The Bloodline and The Brawling Brutes began an all-out brawl.
Roman Reigns came out and destroyed most of the Brutes and Drew McIntyre. Kevin Owens emerged as the fifth man out for the Brutes and pinned The Tribal Chief with a Stunner.
On the latest edition of Smacktalk, Mantel mentioned that WWE could take advantage of all the history between Owens and Sami going into Survivor Series. He elaborated that all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place for Zayn to turn on The Bloodline and drive him out of the faction.
“When I saw Sami Zayn go head-to-head with Kevin, that was the setup. I think we could see Sami Zayn turn around. It would be a perfect setup for this and they set it up well ” We didn’t see Roman until the entire show, which was cool.” [4:04 – 4:28]

Roman Reigns will lead this match at Survivor Series
The Bloodline will probably be in action as they are set to face The Brawling Brutes, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens at Survivor Series in a WarGames match.
The faction led by Roman Reigns has dominated WWE for the past two years. However, their Survivor Series opponents could add three former World Champions to their ranks in McIntyre, Sheamus and Owens. Also, the history between Sami Zayn and KO could prove to be a deciding factor in the outcome.
