WWE SmackDown Ends On Cliffhanger As WWE Draft Set To Continue On WWE Raw WWE

WWE SmackDown ended on a cliffhanger as the first night of the WWE Draft wrapped up with a big loss for the Bloodline.

In a replay of the night one WrestleMania 39 main event, the Usos attempted to become WWE Tag Team Champions for the ninth time, taking on current champs Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.

In a hard fought match, there was a backstage drama playing out as throughout the night Paul Heyman had made it clear to Solo Sikoa what Roman Reigns’ wishes were… although the audience remained in the dark.

After mid-match Heyman got a call from Reigns and sent Sikoa out to the ring, it seemed the Solo may be poised to turn on his own brothers the Usos.

However, WWE SmackDown ended in a cliffhanger of sorts as there were several threads left unresolved by the end of the show.

While Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens were able to retain their WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championships, there was no action on Sikoa’s part.

As the Usos looked stunned in defeat, Sikoa was impossible to read other than perhaps disappointment as he stared on as Michael Cole on commentary mused whether or not Roman Reigns would even want the Usos drafted to the same brand as him.

The Usos will find out their fate in the WWE Draft (and perhaps more from the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns) on Monday Night Raw on USA Network.

Will the Usos remain with the Bloodline on the ‘Island of Relevancy’ or have they once and for all been cast out into the ‘Ocean of Obscurity’ as Paul Heyman threatened if they were to lose.

We’ll have to wait until Monday Night Raw to find out!
