Following Jey Uso’s recent announcement on SmackDown about his departure from WWE, it seems he’ll be absent from WWE television. WWE has also moved him to the alumni section. Roman Reigns is also currently dealing with an injury, expected to keep him off television for a while.
However, these changes might not bring significant shifts to the Bloodline Saga. Reports suggest that WWE had already planned for Roman Reigns’ break after SummerSlam, with rumors circulating even before his injury. This suggests a premeditated absence, not necessarily a storyline alteration due to injury.
Jey Uso’s departure and Roman Reigns’ injury aren’t expected to disrupt the larger narrative. Insider reports confirm that Jey Uso’s current angle is part of a broader storyline, indicating that their hiatus won’t drastically affect ongoing plans for the Bloodline saga.
The future holds uncertainty. Jimmy Uso might embark on a solo run on the Blue brand, holding the fort until Jey’s return. Solo Sikoa, the Bloodline Enforcer, is advertised for the August 25, 2023 edition of SmackDown.

Although specific dates aren’t available, there’s anticipation around Jey Uso’s eventual WWE comeback. An interesting development could be if Jimmy Uso wrestles at Payback 2023, potentially setting the stage for Jey’s return, interfering to impact the match’s outcome. This might strategically build towards a match between the twins.
As for Roman Reigns, his return timeline is uncertain. He isn’t advertised for upcoming events, including WWE Superstar Spectacle 2023. Speculation persists that he might appear at Survivor Series this year, though nothing official is confirmed.
The Bloodline’s absence does offer a silver lining. It opens doors for other SmackDown superstars to step up and showcase their talents. LA Knight could potentially fill in for Jey Uso on SmackDown during this period.
Looking ahead, the intrigue lies in upcoming shows and how events unfold. Fans await Jey Uso’s return and the next chapter of the Bloodline saga, curious about when and how it will unfold.
