This week on WWE RAW, undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns returned, as the fissures in The Bloodline continued to grow. After accepting a bout at WrestleMania against Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, Jey Uso was requested to talk to his cousin backstage.
WWE RAW: Jey Uso rejects Roman Reigns
After refusing to beat up Sami Zayn, Jey Uso left The Bloodline at the Royal Rumble. Since then, the tag team champion has been intermittently involved with the stable, even refusing to perform with his family. Nevertheless, he recently returned to betray Zayn and stand strong alongside Reigns and company.
Jey and Reigns exchanged words on the most recent edition of RAW before Reigns grabbed Uso’s leg and stated that he loved him, clearly expecting a response from Jey, who instead stared at Paul Heyman many times before departing.
See the video clip below:
Once upon a time, Jey would not have considered reciprocating the same feelings. The fact that he did not react with “I love you too” may indicate that Jey still has a significant issue with his Tribe Chief.
Reigns and Jey have been rivals in the past, and WWE may attempt to revive their feud in the near future.
Uso has made it plain that he has only returned to The Bloodline for the sake of his brother Jimmy after enduring a difficult few months. This might be the beginning of another conflict between Reigns and Uso before SummerSlam.
Paul Heyman questioned Reigns whether he received the answers he sought after Jey’s departure. The world champion acknowledged this fact. It remains to be seen how this will play out as WrestleMania approaches.
