Jey Uso’s push to the main event singles scene for a match against his cousin Roman Reigns was a shocking decision. Then as the story unfolded everything started to make perfect sense.
While speaking with Peter Rosenberg, Jey Uso revealed that WWE initially wanted one match between himself and Roman Reigns. The response from their first contest convinced WWE to go a different way with things.
“This was a one and done, supposed to be. They were like ‘this sh*t is fire right here, bro’. I think I was just to get Roman to the next homie but man, you see the storytelling, this is real. The feeling’s right there, the promos right there. If you watch the match back, the match was basic, what grooved is the damn story and that is the main thing.”
“We showing you real emotion, we showing you feeling. You can put the Fiend with Roman, you can put Seth Rollins with Roman, whoever, whatever, whatever top guy they got, put him with Roman, I guaran-damn-tee you, uce, they didn’t pull out emotion, they didn’t pull out real feeling, they didn’t pull out storytelling the way me and uce did that thing. Tell me you didn’t feel like you were watching a damn movie, you forgot you were watching wrestling. When I watched it back, I was watching that thing like I wasn’t in it. I was like ‘man, this is good, this is my best work.'”
Now the Tribal Chief will face Jey Uso in an I Quit match inside the unforgiving Hell In A Cell structure.
