When your storyline is so good that a 15 minute segment with no microphones can main event a pay per view you know you’re doing something right
I was like ah kevin owens lost and going off air but didn't expect a post attack, it was the best segment ever!
Is that Jason Monana
@Stan Smith it was gold😂
@mvs mvs ahhaahaha
Kiddo, is your audio system working, cuz the crowd was really into this. I mean, I prefer AEW, but this storyline gives me hope that one day soon I'll enjoy both WWE and AEW equally, cuz Paul taking over creative has done miracles for the biggest pro-wrestling promotion in the world.
One love ❤️
Have not heard a genuine reaction that huge from a WWE crowd in a LONG time. Nice to see that impactful, emotional storytelling can still happen in the WWE. 👍
@KanjiXShen if it's not for kids why is it rated PG?
@KanjiXShen just saying WWE use to be good. Now they're PG and aiming twords entertaining kids. Which makes no sense
@KanjiXShen yep WWE ruined themselves when they went PG. Still trying to figure that one out lol
I honestly believe this storyline could be the greatest that's ever been told. The emotions, the twists and turns, and it's not even finished yet. This is pure theatre and pro wrestling storytelling at the absolute pinnacle. Long term booking done well and masterfully. It has to end with Sami winning at least one of the belts. This is bigger than him and Owens against The Uso's for the tag team championship. Maybe they'll do an angle where Solo takes over from Jey and Jey goes face (or that's a swerve and Jey is going to turn on Sami). Either way, I can't wait to see what happens next. I'm so emotionally invested in all of this. I resubscribed to the WWE Network for the first time in many years just to check out the Royal Rumble and I thought it was an awesome event. Looking forward to seeing what Elimination Chamber has in store for us.
@Oli Scott This story line is predictable...everyone knows what was coming..Shield story was different...
In my opinion, the greatest wrestling story ever told was Undertaker and Kane. No one can change my mind on that. However, this storyline Iis DEFINETELY one of the best in the last decade and the pop that Sami received is one of the biggest in a while.
@Oli Scott Yeah, I did. Well, I grew up in the 90s'. The Austin vs Rock rivalries are up there.
@Jamie Koh 100% agree. Though I can't see Sami winning at Elimination Chamber.
When Roman falls down, the angle perfectly captures Jey's first reaction. Like Sami did what he couldn't do. And that awe that he actually stood up to him unlike Jey when this whole Tribal Chief story started. This is perfect. Everything comes around.
lol thats what happened and thats what Sami said to Jey in today's episode of Smackdown, are the writers following the comment section lol
He will never forget what Seth did.
@Pblightnin you blind bro
Jey Uso may have been the one who cracked during the Ucey segment, but my god was he the one giving me chills in this one. I could feel his pain. Well done gentlemen. The storyline and performance has been out of this world
Nah...more heart breaking was Seth Rollins betraying The Shield.
Man, look at fans all standing up. This tells us how gripping this storyline has been
Me too and I didn't expect a post attack segment which is awesome and if vince was still in charge he will be like let's cut off air and don't do post attack segment
Not gonna lie, I was standing up also
Roman falling down exactly like he did when Rollins struck him in 2014 is so poetic
@Bryan S yeah
He got back lash from when that happened
@Reece Centre I would rather wanna see Sami in the main event but regarding that Cody is one of the hottest stars right now, he would probably be in the main event. I hope that WWE makes it a triple threat
Geniuse guy 😆
Roman seemed so heartbroken after that chair shot , his reaction was epic, him sitting on the grown like he just lost his best friend with his hands over his face
Remember when the Shield first imploded? Memories of Seth Rollins smacking a chair to his back must be going through Reigns' mind when the cold, hard steel met his back.
Yeah he didn’t even seem hurt
The reaction on Jimmys face before he super kicked Sami was on point and Roman selling that chair was perfection.
I don't think people are giving jey the props he deserves. The way that man acted like he was really betrayed was amazing 👏 bravo
That POP sends chills throughout my entire body. The only recent pop like that was when Cena returned at MITB. Other than that, I haven't heard a pop like that since the Austin days.
We are witnessing a once in a lifetime storyline unfold in front of our very eyes. Appreciate this. Soak it in. Enjoy it while we have it because this is gonna be talked about for the rest of time and we'll be lucky enough to say we were alive to witness it happen.
@Luca Rotaru Hardy bros was not as loud. Edge 2020 was close but not as loud.
Cena MITB is the only one close to match it.
Daniel Bryan turning on bray Wyatt in the steel cage it's one of the best crowd reaction in the whole wrestling world
edge 2020, hardy bros 2017, dolph cashing in...
😂this is a huge reach
The moment Sami turned to Jey and apologised, to me, it felt like that moment at WM24 where HBK mouthed the words "I'm sorry, I love you" to Ric Flair. That same emotion. This is arguably the greatest storyline ever.
The pop from the crowd after the chair shot and the pop as Jey walked out made this segment even better!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥
@Ronnie DEFELICE you are so incorrect wwe is booming I was at extreme rules in Philly and bray s pop was insane the noise you hear on TV is real and its live so again nice try....
I was so surprised about they have a post attack match segment and it was amazing, best storytelling at its best
its like sami flipped on a switch when he gave roman that chair shot
@Ronnie DEFELICE bro a fan cam and being live in the audience, it was the crowd, arguably the GREATEST POP of all time, even sami chants telling you, golden moments.
Jimmy Uso was so chill and just after that chair shot on Roman, he went completely Rage mode. Props to him
That pop from the crowd once Sami hit Roman with the chair still gives me goosebumps 2 days later. Just brilliant storytelling something we haven't seen in ANY wrestling company in years.
Definitely a top moment of the year, better yet in bloodline history
This story is phenomenal. Everyone has played their parts fantastically. The unsung hero for me has been Jey Uso. He definitely is no longer 'The Other One' of The Usos. He deserves another 'Main Event Jey Uso' push! Kudos to all involved 🤙🏾
Crazy how Jey was the one against Sami but now is the only one that was defending him in the end and couldn’t attack him.
Perfect storytelling fr
Zayn isn't sorry that he hit Reigns with a chair
He's sorry that he didn't do it sooner
That "I'm sorry Jay" from Sami was heartbreaking. Definitely one of the best storylines in a very long time.
@USJAY it was probably him sitting in his chair watching it and when it happened he probably just sat there and said "wow." ... riveting....
Yu can legit hear the hurt in Jey voice
@Ashton Martin do you have the link?
Gave me shawn michaels ric flair vibes
@Ethan Chadwick he mentioned it in that interview that LA Knight brought up the other day.
Roman: "Damn, I gotta stop turning my back on my friends holding chairs."
This is the best storyline of the decade, hearing a pop like that only from a chair hit.... yet alone a potential match later on! It's going to be crazy. Enjoy is while it lasts
Haven’t heard a pop like that in years. Surprise returns and everything are great for crowd reactions but a long term story line that can make over 50,000 people all react like this is outstanding. Viva HHH in creative!!
I haven't seen anything this good from the WWE since the attitude era. Wrestling is back!
I don't think I've ever seen a story written and acted so well on WWE Television. Well done by everyone involved from The Bloodline and Roman to Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.
I cannot wait to see the payoff!
The crowd reaction when Sami hit that chair shot was an ALL TIMER. This story line is unbelievably gripping and just so damn good
It was the loudest and best reaction i ever heard and having this post attack segment was perfect, i didn't expect post attack
@Steveshi Clayxui No!!!
@Nick Shah no
@Steveshi Clayxui ok
@Rock Ape sorry to say but this was the loudest pop of ALL TIME in the history atleast 50k people were screaming their lungs out
Never has a chair shot ever gotten such a pop before. Phenomenal!
This was absolutely off the charts insane storytelling! What a way to end the 2023 RR. This made Judgement Days' Con-chair on Edge and Beth Phoenix look like kiddy school. We all knew a Sami turn was coming, but I don't believe I've ever seen Roman become this unhinged and psychotic. You know it's hard core when the audience collectively chants F bombs at you like this. First the match itself was pretty amazing! This was some of Romans best work and both he and KO really brought it and had great chemistry. Once Roman slammed KO's head on those stairs, my entire family had trouble watching from then on. Not only was it brutal, but intensity once Sami slammed the chair on Roman, everyone in my house lost it. We're all still in shock, in fact I haven't felt this way since Hulk Hogan turned heel with the NWO 26 years ago. My question now is how in the hell do they think they can book a Cody vs Roman at WrestleMania after this? It would seem to me that this storyline will/needs to continue possibly thru the entire summer as there's just so much to work with here. And no offense to Cody, but right now Roman is on another level with his character and with Cody just now coming back I don't see the appropriate build up here. This story is all about Sami and The Bloodline, and to me its far from over.
I bet no one expect a post attack after the match, if vince was in charge. He wouldn't do this post attack segment! Even around 5 to 10 wrestlers backstage wanted to help sami and kevin owens
0:29 the moment 😱
That pop is historic.
Not many people talk about it, but Roman reigns’s acting throughout his whole tribal chief era has been spectacular.
Him crying in that HIAC match with Jey in 2020 was great & him yelling in Sami’s face this past SD about beating him in front of his family because he tore the Bloodline apart was stellar.
I think compared to what he was a couple years ago and how fans reacted to him. And where he is now. He may be one of the best ever. His run these last few years has been truly epic.
He is Money right now !
I teared up a bit when Jey walked out. This was some of the best story telling and acting I've ever seen in wrestling. I'm gonna miss Sami Uso.
@Uhhfins foh 💀💀💀💀
@Iceman no it's fun to laugh at aew tho cause its so bad
@Kreuzer doesn't mean it has to be brought up on youtube comments about wwe. they competing for ratings, we really competing for thumb ups that bad? lol
@Anti Social this storyline is way better than all of wwe too.
@Iceman cause aew have no contest, ya opinions dont matter. wwe still wins.
Now Sami Zayn becomes Hero ❤️
No matter how you watched it or where you watched it, this moment still felt real and epic, especially the way Sami looked when he did that.
The bloodline will go down as one of the greatest storylines in WWE history 💪🏽
I watched since the 90’s I always said Cena/Edge Rock/Stone Cold was my favorite storylines. But this right here topped them all. So much emotion. Jey is really the MVP.
Moments like these are what make Pro Wrestling great.
Jey asking Sammi “what you doing man” as he’s crying was heartbreaking. This whole storyline was perfection. Those 15 minutes after the match will go down in history.
@Iqran Edzereie true that bro
@Laquan Lucas JR would say, “OH MY GOD!!!! OH MY GOD!!! Sami Zayn just struck that steel right to the Tribal Chief’s back. What is Sami thinking?” And after Jimmy’s kick and the eventual beatdown, he would continue, “GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!!! The Bloodline just beat the hell out of the Honorary Uce like a government mule!!!”
They need to make a wwe history book because this is the best story telling ever
@Craig Is A Punk that line was deep
"I called you my brother" 😭😭😭
i was repeating “hit him, sami.” at the screen 😭 such an amazing ending to the rumble. ive absolutely adored this storyline. everyone has done fantastic and this will definitely be one of my favorite moments. literally had me shaking from excitement
I reacted the opposite!! I repeated "Don't do it! Don't do it! They're going to maul you alive!!!"
The story these guys have built is just freaking incredible. What an iconic moment!
This give me chills dude. One of the best wrestling moments ever.
Sami pleading to Jey after was beautiful. Like " I had to, please understand. "
if sami doesn’t beat roman in elimination Chamber, we go riot
sami dropping the chair instead of defending himself with it, and immediately telling jay he was sorry. was phenomenal
Nothing with everything you say but you all realize that it’s « JEY » and not « JAY » right …? 😂😂😂
@Sharon Lawson no
Cause Sami knew at that point ..he was gonna get it..he figured hell with it drop the chair and take the whipping and that's called..being a man and taking it....but hey walking out and not joining in was awesome story telling..in the end it will go back to the beginning of the run..romans big run is over at mania..cody will dethrone roman
I'm sure after everything Roman did to Jay and made Jay do Jimmy that Jay felt Sami's inner conflict.
Sami: I'm sorry I couldn't resist.
Sami Zayn Just Proved that his Friendship with Kevin Owens was more important Than Being In the Bloodline
“I thought you were my brother man” heartbreaking. Jeys acting is so good it makes me emotional every time.
“You said you loved him like a brother” hit harder than the steel chair 💀😭
I have been watching wwe for last 8 years.And I have never been more engrossed in a storyline more than this.What an impeccable storyline!!!!
The bloodline really has such a mob mentality… Jimmy and Sami were tight from the very start and he didn’t hesitate to put him down immediately out of his loyalty to Roman
one of the LOUDEST pops in recent wrestling history, props to Sami and the Bloodline for this incredible moment
@Ronnie DEFELICE I'm enjoying your unsuccessful attempts all over the comments to make people upset lol Btw, as a musician who deals with stuff like microphones and amplifiers 6 days a week, 8 hours a day, you clearly don't know what you're talking about, feedback is a thing but it sounds completely different, it's like a strong whistle. What you hear is called Overcompensation, it happens when microphones can't handle the noise and rapidly overheat, with a high risk of getting broken or malfunctioning. You actually could fake that, but in order to do that you should physically get to all the microphones at the same time and increase the Gain, that it's like a microphone setting, and it'd work but we'd be able to understand that someone rapidly increased Gain, it's impossible to not make it noticeable. You could say "well, they reproduced a Overcompensated audio track", and you could do that for small sounds in small places, but for arenas huge like that it's physically impossible to create a believable sound like that. So...you could say "they took an Overcompensated audio track from somewhere else", yeah, they could have done that, but in order to do that you should be able to, you know, do something like make 50k people pop as loud as they can... It's like obtaining the goal to be in a NSFW video with Scarlett Johansson just to DeepFake your face in the video. You could do that, but, you know, you already are in the video, so what's the point?
@Ronnie DEFELICE I was there, it WAS that loud in there
@J T called speaker feed back when you play loud crowd sounds over a speaker and the mics pick it up. Lol watch the fan cam the audience isn't making the noise
Love it how Paul Heyman at 0:25 says: „Do it!“ - knowing exactly what’s gonna happen and then be shocked 😂
Someone in the comments of a video about Jey pointed out that Sami apologized only to Jey and no one else in that moment. What an amazing character detail, shows that Sami really and truly cares about Jey and his cause.
Sami deserves Oscar for his performance, one of the greatest storyline in history of wrestling has reached it's peak,
WWE has been apart of my life since I was a kid but I admit over the years I haven’t paid much attention UNTIL I came across this storyline and man I am happy to say I’m tuned back into the WWE awesome storyline 👏 🔥🔥
The sad part is that if this doesn’t lead to Sami being a world champ, nothing ever will. It’ll be hard to get him this over ever again
This right here, is storytelling at it's best. From Sami delivering the Chair shot to Roman's back, the eruption of the fans, Jey Uso walking away from the Bloodline.
@Felix Benavidez see i am in favor of that over kev and sami they should tag sami and jey against solo and jimmy
Im surprised more people dont realize that it was a fake pop. Wwe effects. If you actually look at the people's faces you'll see half of them aren't even making noise. It's all speakers
@Stan Smith sure bud. youre the type wholl say everything wwe is predictable, even if it isnt, just because its wwe. move on along now.
Jimmy: (Batista voice) YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE MY DAWG!!!
To whomever is reading this - wishing you the best morning/night - remember, what we think, we become 🧠💰Let's make it big in 2023!
Such great students of the sports right there, the bloodline, Sami Zayn, KO all put up legendary performances that will somehow cement their legacies.
This storyline is the only thing keeping me tuned into WWE. Truly amazing work.
Triple H factor. Credit goes to Triple H & his team for being very patient and allowing the storyline to properly develop along with crowd reaction as well. Best storyline in years. If it was Vince the storyline would have been dropped after 2 weeks
I know it’s been repeated like a parrot. But damn, I came back to it. Great storytelling. Hope there’s many more amazing storylines and moments, from wwe but even aew
The more the merrier
Man this was so crazy. Hands down the best storyline in WWE history
Epic Royal Rumble that will remain in our minds forever. Thanks triple H
This story was built up beautifully. The crazy thing to me is this didnt feel like a turn. It felt like a being human moment. Knowing that even being with a family, family can still go to far. And the fact that he really changed jey even though he is the hot head and quick to kick someone he knew it wasn't right being like that. It's one thing to show dominance then to just be torturing someone. Everyone felt this moment coming eventually and you could tell the crowd was so invested in sami. This moment has really now made him the biggest superstar right now. Can't wait til Monday. Jey made me tear up.
@Uchiha Itachi You're the minority because judging from the reaction by millions of fans and it that night set a record in viewership and all time gate record. The Royal Rumble didn't suck
@Z Q No, Roman never made Jey beat up Jimmy
@Zedeezia Roman never made Jey beat up Jimmy
@X-Sen Execution Doesn't taste old.
@Uchiha Itachi Well. If Royal Rumble sucks, then why are you here wasting your time reading comments. I think you are just full of hatred with no happiness in life & not happy with others freaking success
This is cinema. Props to The Bloodline and Sami making this work! Jey deserves an Oscar!
Un momento increíble recordamos el 2014 hasta la forma en que cayó SAMI ZAYN es el amado por la gente este es el comienzo del fin THE BLOODLINE
I’m not really a fan anymore of wrestling so I’m more just seeing from the outside but, man this has to be one of the longest and most emotional storylines I’ve ever seen in WWE.
0:28 I cannot stop repeating this part and it makes me think about the Roman Reigns overthrow.
Royal rumble 2023 made me feel like a kid again.
I feel Sami and Jay’s emotions were real considering how long they’ve been building the bloodline story. These guys work so hard together to get to this point with the audience and dividing a group has to be hard for them.
I’m a real boyyyyyy 😢😂 this one hurt, not gonna lie, in shock I say in shock!
Its still real to me damnit
It's still real to me too
I'm so glad they kept this storyline going . Totally worth it 👌
This is one of those wrestling storylines we'll tell stories about one day.
0:28 Just Look At The Crowd Reaction 🔥
This Storyline Will Give You Goosebumps '''''
1 Of The Greatest Storylines Of all Time
''''' That PoP From The Crowd 💥
0:08 that moment when Sami holds Roman's gaze for a second before lowering his head in submission … Priceless !! Oscar award nominee
I was cheering SO LOUDLY when that chair shot was delivered!!!! And it was no doubt one of the loudest crowd reactions you'll ever hear....this story line has been carried out SO well!!!
Fake pop wwe effects if you actually look at people's faces they aren't making noise lol
@The Russ Show It IS very loud. We def have seen louder though. Just not in quite some time.
@AlexTheRed1985 if this isn’t loud, idk what is.
@The Russ Show it isn’t. Pretty sure you know what tops it too… but heh, people have a rather short memory…
@AlexTheRed1985 actually, we have not. This is the loudest pop in the 2020s.
Sami Zayn must be world champion, he's the Best.
Man…. Jey got me on that lil part brooo the shouting “WHACHU DOIN?!?!” Like he’s sooo good and I wish hey got more recognition for it💯🙏🏽☝🏽
The pop when that chair hit Roman is the biggest i've heard in a long time. It's like when everyone is rooting for the bullied kid and when he finally strikes back...
Sami selling that superkick like he was shot. 👌🏼
Give Sami, KO, and the Bloodline all the Oscars and the Slammys. This stroryline in Cinema gold man.
What made me tear up was when Sami turned to Jey and told him he was sorry. It was like watching two friends at the start of a movie fight their way all the way to the end, only for one to die, and only one makes it out. Jey had to watch his brother get beaten. Jey of all people understood why Sami did what he did and personally couldnt blame him. Sami basically said “Goodbye brother” to Jey without really saying.
@Lou Sassle wrestling has always been soap opera for men
That’s why Jay didn’t want to kick the 😢
It was like jey was saying “why did you do this, it ain’t have to be this way” before they “pulled the trigger”
The beard, the hair and he is white hot over with the fans - Sami has major DB 2014 vibes now give him the world title run he deserves WWE!!
I’m loving this! Thank you HHH and WWE!
That pop is louder than a goal in a World Cup final
@Ronnie DEFELICEyou are not answering about the fan cams questions.
You hear it live at the arena because it is played on speakers that are set up throughout the arena.
Lmao it was the fakest pop ever
@Ronnie DEFELICE bruh my friends were there live , and they literally sent me their videos , it was freaking loud
I love the way Sami went head to head with Roman for a moment and then realized and pulled back. It's like the underdog from the underground woke up inside him for a second. Can't wait for their match in Montreal
this was one of the greatest moments in history without a doubt
Roman’s 2 betrayals both came from getting hit by a chair. The first one created the biggest heel at the time, the second one created the biggest face at the time
@David Souza Who is Sami JUDAD Sami JUDAS?
@Ahmad Zul Farish Bin Azmi he mentions Sami you dope 😂. Maybe not by name but the 2nd one is Sami
@tune Nah, I believe you. I'm just happy with the storyline and where it can go from here, it's been a bit since I could say that concerning the bloodline and Sami. Well done on all parts. Hope everybody had a great night, take care/have a good weekend.
I can’t stop watching this.
It’s the greatest storytelling they’ve pulled off in years if not ever.
Long-term storylines are the best! That crowd reaction says it all.
How many heartbreaking apologies, tearjerking performances or soul crushing betrayals has Sami been a part of, without actually sampling the fruits of his labour? I’m starting to believe we may see his first legit shot at getting what’s been earned
Romans line delivery is awesome. He’s playing his character so well. Been at the top of the mountain for so long it’s starting to get to him.
Was there and it was just so magical the crowd was so reeled in! Best storyline in a long time!
This is pure wrestling perfection, one of the greatest storylines of all time.
The Bloodline storyline is up there with Stone Cold vs Vince and Kane vs Undertaker but Bloodline story is longer, more developed and better executed in my opinion
Lame AF, pointless storyline.🙄
@MrNiceGuy Nah Your weird for that
The best storyline period, the build up was crazy Sami did everything right. That chair shot to the back was perfect
One of the biggest pops I've ever heard. Just as loud as when Brock came back in 2012 and one of Stone Cold's pops in the 90s.
One of the biggest pops I've heard in a while from WWE. Good Job Sami and Roman !!
This the type of stuff that makes you fall in love with Pro-Wrestling. ❤
Look at Paul heyman said “do it” before Sami hit Roman 😂
Can't believe how good this was. Sami Zayn one of the best pure actors in the whole roster. and the fact that they gave it so much time to nurture the story to get to this point and not rush it is so respectful and awesome to see.
something wrestling and the entire world needed. and WWE's faith in us was rewarded.
@K most did not expect jey to walk out
Sami should get the reward.... World championship.
@K True but, the way they acted it out made it play so beautifully
but u know it gets ruined because EVERYBODY EXPECTED THIS but hey i pretended to not see this coming yet it still hurts that they actually done it
I'm so heartbroken for Sami 😭
This storyline at this moment has almost made Cody Rhodes an afterthought
It’s only been 3 days but I wish I can watch this moment for the first time again.
One of the best storyline in the history of WWE. My respect for all of the bloodline for doing this masterpiece
