We go to Sami Zayn.

Sami welcomes everyone to his locker room. He says the year 2022 has really been the most remarkable year in his life and in WWE history. Why? Because of the most dominant faction in WWE history, the Bloodline. They have dominated WWE in a way never seen before. You have to talk about Roman Reigns when you talk domination. If you haven't done it yet, it is time to acknowledge him. You have to remember the debut of Solo Sikoa. You talk about dominance, you have to talk about the Usos and their journey to become the longest reigning tag team champions of all time. Sami says he needs a dictionary to understand a lot of what the Usos say.

The absolute highlight was at Survivor Series when he embraced the Bloodline and they embraced him. He was responsible for the Bloodline winning.

Sami says the level of dominance you saw in 2022 was a sample of what you are going to see in 2023. Sami wishes everyone Happy Holidays.
