The only reason Roman Reigns beat Jey Uso in Tribal Combat was because Jimmy Uso got in the way. Jimmy came out at first in costume, pretending to be hurt so he couldn’t help his brother. He pulled Jey off Reigns when it looked like he had won the match. After a superkick and a spear through a table, Reigns was pinning Jey to make sure he stayed Tribal Chief and the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
There’s to be no interference.
As the dust from SummerSlam has cleared and fans have talked about whether or not the main event was good, a few fans have brought up a very good point. One of the few regulations of Tribal Combat, according to WWE, is that nobody else is allowed to interfere until there is a clear winner. This was stated by WWE before to the bout. That means that both Jimmy and Solo Sikoa broke the rules.
Published more than two weeks before the match, it wouldn’t be the first time WWE forgot the rules of its own match. Fans are also arguing about the winner of another big match at SummerSlam. Cody Rhodes beat Brock Lesnar, but some people think The American Nightmare should have been kicked out of the match. Rhodes hit Lesnar with a set of steel steps right in front of the referee, but the official didn’t seem to care.
So far, the Bloodline plot has been done so well that it would be a shame if Reigns, Sikoa, and Jimmy didn’t get in trouble for breaking the rules of Tribal Combat. Having the older members of their family talk to Reigns would be a good way to settle this, even if WWE just forgot it had said influence isn’t allowed before. The most likely thing to happen next is that Reigns goes away for a few months while Jimmy and Jey fight.
