Paul Heyman makes a bold claim and compares The Bloodline to iconic factions
Paul Heyman has hailed The Bloodline as the most dominant faction in “pro-wrestling/sports entertainment history.”
The popular SmackDown faction recently defeated RK-Bro and Drew McIntyre in the main event of WrestleMania Backlash. Roman Reigns and The Usos stood tall after the Tribal Chief pinned Riddle to earn a victory in the 6-Man Tag Team Match.
Following the show, Paul Heyman was asked if he ever had doubts about The Bloodline’s victory. The Special Counsel to the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion then claimed that the Reigns-led faction is the most dominant group in history, surpassing iconic stables such as nWo and D-Generation X.
“Doubt? In my mind? No, c’mon let’s shoot from the hip here. Your Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, the longest reigning SmackDown Tag Team Champions of all time, The Usos… The Bloodline is the most dominant faction in pro-wrestling slash sports entertainment history. You can tell me all about the 4 Horsemen, you can tell me all about the nWo, you can tell me about DX… there has never, never ever been a faction as dominant,” said Paul Heyman.
