Last night at Hell in a Cell, Roman Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship by defeating his cousin Jey Uso in what was a truly fantastic I Quit Hell in a Cell match.
Because he wasn’t able to beat Roman Reigns, former SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jey Uso must now “fall in line”, recognise Roman Reigns as the “Tribal Chief” and follow the orders of the Universal Champion.
WrestlingInc is exclusively reporting that the current plan is for Jey Uso to serve as Roman Reigns’ henchman on SmackDown. The idea is that Jey is going to serve Roman in order to provide for his family.
It’s not known when Jey will side with Reigns, but the idea is for it to be a “if you can’t beat them, join them” situation where Reigns will be the Tribal Chief and Jey will be his henchman. The storyline will be that Reigns is the provider and Jey needs to be able to provide for his family so he will essentially fall in line with him.
It’s not known how Jimmy Uso will play into this when he’s medically cleared to return.
It has been reported that there has been talk of having Roman Reigns feud with Drew McIntyre heading into Survivor Series. However, now that Drew dropped the WWE Championship to Randy Orton, that doesn’t look like it’s going to be happening.
