Roman Reigns, known as the formidable Tribal Chief, has successfully maintained his reign as the Universal Champion, thwarting every challenger who dared to face him. Among the recent contenders was his own cousin, Jey Uso, who fell short at SummerSlam. Despite this setback, Uso’s journey might not be over just yet, as reports suggest he could be on a collision course with Reigns once again at Crown Jewel in November.
Last week on SmackDown, Jey Uso made a stunning declaration by announcing his ‘quit’ from WWE. The twist came after his twin brother’s actions led to Uso’s loss of the Universal Championship at SummerSlam. Seeking retribution, Jey unleashed a fierce assault on every member of The Bloodline during the show, including none other than Roman Reigns himself.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter sheds light on a potential development in Uso’s trajectory. Meltzer reveals that Jey Uso is being positioned as the company’s top babyface, signaling a renewed rivalry with Roman Reigns. This positions him as a prominent figure for the future, with speculations suggesting he might get another shot at dethroning Reigns at the upcoming Crown Jewel event.
“In the light of him taking out Reigns, there’s an implication that they have to revisit this storyline. This angle certainly positions him as the hottest babyface in the company. Additionally, there’s a major Saudi Arabia event before the Mania season,” remarks Meltzer, implying the strategic importance of a potential showdown.

However, it’s worth noting that not all opinions align with this potential rematch. In a recent episode of his podcast, “83 Weeks,” Eric Bischoff weighed in on the SummerSlam clash between Reigns and Uso. Bischoff expressed disappointment, attributing it to high expectations tied to The Bloodline’s compelling narrative that had been captivating audiences.
While Bischoff wasn’t the only one who found the SummerSlam match underwhelming, WWE could use this opportunity to course-correct and deliver a thrilling showdown between the two powerhouses at Crown Jewel. With Uso’s recent acts of defiance against The Tribal Chief, the stage is set for an explosive clash of titans, as Reigns seeks vengeance for the humiliation he suffered on SmackDown.
