“Guilty” Roman Reigns’ manager Paul Heyman reacts to Sami Zayn’s betrayal at WWE Royal Rumble 2023
An unexpected turn in the Bloodline storyline occurred on Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas when Sami Zayn betrayed Roman Reigns. Paul Heyman, manager of Reigns, said only one word about Sami’s actions that evening but that was enough to figure out everything.
This year’s Royal Rumble played up to its hype as one of WWE’s most exciting PPV events by introducing even more offbeat aspects than usual.
Sami Zayn’s defiance of Roman Reigns’ direct order and Jey Uso’s departure were both well worth the wait, per the show’s 50,000 viewers.

The Bloodline has been one of the most fascinating storylines in the history of WWE, and no one anticipated how the tale would play out on the Royal Rumble night.
When Roman and his squad, The Bloodline, stood up against Kevin Owens, the stunning plot unfolded.
The Tribal Chief gave the order to the newest member of The Bloodline, Sami Zayn, to beat Kevin Owens with a chair while Owens was handcuffed. That was the defining moment for Sami, as he made the choice to go with his friend Kevin rather than the leader of The Bloodline.

After watching what Sami had just done, Roman and the fifty thousand spectators were left speechless. Everyone was shocked by what Sami did because they were all aware of the severe consequences he was about to face the next minute.
Sami not only refrained from striking Owens, but he wound up banging into the back of the tribal chief instead.
Zayn suffered the consequences for his betrayal, which caused Roman and the rest of his team to become immediately outraged against him.

Part and parcel of The Bloodline, Paul Heyman, was standing right next to the squared circle when the entire event took place. He was as shocked as the rest of the crowd to watch Sami betray his team. Paul shared a snapshot from that night on Instagram and used a single word to describe his feelings toward Sami.
