Booker T, who is in the WWE Hall of Fame, recently talked about The Bloodline’s current segment on SmackDown.
At SummerSlam last week, Jey Uso fought his cousin Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and the Tribal Chief title. But he lost the match because his twin brother, Jimmy Uso, turned on him. Jimmy told Jey on the next SmackDown that he did what he did out of love because he was afraid Jey would become another Roman Reigns if he became Tribal Chief.
Many fans said that Jimmy’s reason “didn’t make sense.” Booker T said on his Hall of Fame podcast that, even though he thinks the way WWE told the story was “spot on,” Jimmy’s promo would have been more believable if he had shed a tear.
“Like I said, you can critique Jimmy’s acting. Okay, because me, I’m an actor at heart (…). Because just think for a second, for one second, if Jimmy could’ve created a real tear come out of his eye within that promo. Good God, man! See, that’s what I’m thinking about. So, yeah, I think the acting has to be, you know, you could fault one for that. I can see why one may feel a certain way about when they watched it. Yeah, yeah, I get that,” he said.

Jey Uso leave WWE
Jey Uso didn’t believe his twin brother’s reason for attacking him on SmackDown. After beating Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa in the ring, he asked Jimmy to come back as he was going backstage.
Jimmy seemed to think that his twin brother would forgive him, but Jey surprised him by giving him a superkick on the entrance ramp. The former Right Hand Man then turned to the camera and said that he was leaving The Bloodline, SmackDown, and WWE. He then left through the crowd.
