As the saying goes, “Never say never,” and WWE’s Sami Zayn seems to be embodying this phrase as he entertains the idea of stepping into the world of acting. In a recent interview with Ryan Satin on the Out of Character podcast, Zayn revealed his growing interest in pursuing a career in acting, attributing the compelling storyline involving Roman Reigns and The Bloodline as the catalyst for his newfound passion.
The Bloodline Sparks New Ambitions: Zayn’s journey into acting gained momentum during his participation in The Bloodline angle, which he joined in 2022. The emotionally charged storyline allowed him to showcase his versatility as a performer, engaging in intense interactions with wrestling powerhouse Roman Reigns, as well as Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. Reflecting on this experience, Zayn acknowledged how the depth and range of emotions involved in the storyline ignited his fascination with acting.
“Getting bit by the bug,” Zayn described the effect that the Bloodline angle had on him,
“It’s something I’m very interested in and the more I got to flex those chops a little bit with that storyline because of the level of depth and the range of emotions, I got really bit by the bug,” Zayn said of The Bloodline and acting. “How interested I am and how far I pursue it? I don’t know but it’s definitely something I’m interested in.”

Zayn’s Versatility and Comedy Flair:
Zayn’s artistic range extends beyond The Bloodline narrative. His feud with Johnny Knoxville ahead of WrestleMania 38 demonstrated his comedic prowess, culminating in a memorable match that seamlessly blended pro wrestling with the world of Jackass.
Describing his approach to the Knoxville feud, Zayn emphasized authenticity:
“I wanted it to be true to what happens when pro wrestling meets Jackass,” Zayn said to Corey Graves on After The Bell in 2022. “And I think we nailed it.”
Present and Future: In recent developments, Zayn secured a victory on Monday Night Raw by defeating JD McDonagh, maintaining his position as a WWE World Tag Team Champion alongside Kevin Owens.
As Zayn continues to make waves in the wrestling world, his aspirations to explore the realm of acting open up exciting possibilities. While he contemplates the direction this newfound interest may take, fans and observers eagerly anticipate whether Sami Zayn’s journey will eventually extend to the silver screen.
