Paul Heyman spoke about the Bloodline story going into WrestleMania and the rise of Sami Zayn.

Appearing on Jimmy Train’s Traina Thoughts, Heyman characterized Zayn as “the most endearing character we have presented in decades, if not ever”.

Heyman explained that you have not heard the last of Sami Zayn nor Kevin Owens in this story despite the ending to Elimination Chamber where Roman Reigns beat Zayn in Montreal.

He called it perfect timing with the direction of the story and the February premium live event set for Montreal, believing future crowds will aspire to top what the audience at the Bell Centre created.

On the topic of Dwayne Johnson, Heyman never spoke with Johnson but continually heard his name thrown around for this year’s WrestleMania. Heyman didn’t believe Johnson could find the time to properly prepare for such a big match, estimating he would need six to ten weeks to get into ring shape.

Heyman said that the Bloodline storyline filters through the “feel” that Reigns has towards the story and it’s a collaborative effort including SmackDown writers Ryan Callahan, Michael Kirshenbaum, Chad Barbash, and Zach Hyatt along with the central characters within the story.

One subject he was not going to delve into was Vince McMahon’s return to the company, which he said to his knowledge, was only returning to sell the company. Heyman had no idea whether McMahon would stay involved after a potential sale.
