The main event of the Royal Rumble saw Roman Reigns defeat Kevin Owens and face the betrayal of Sami Zayn. A subsequent betrayal took place, but Jey Uso wanted no part in the beatdown that followed suit. In fact, WWE now has interesting plans for The Bloodline after Jey Uso walked out.
As seen on this past week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Sami Zayn tried to get the upper hand on Roman Reigns but it didn’t end well for him. That being said, Jey Uso was still absent from WWE television.
Jey Uso would then react to his absence, indicating that he was parting ways with the faction. In fact, Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso would end up competing in a tag team match after Smackdown went off the air.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that due to Jey Uso’s absence in the storyline, adding that WWE is currently training Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso to be a tag team. With a tag team title match coming up, Solo Sikoa could fill in for his brother while using the Freebird rule.
Braun Strowman and Ricochet have to wrestle The Usos next week. So, that’s a weird one, so maybe they can’t keep Jey out. Maybe Solo, can they do that? I guess they sort of established that on RAW, the Adam Pearance thing. I know Jimmy and Solo did a dark match against Gallows and Anderson last night, so they are giving them experience as a team, or at least one match as a team, perhaps that is where they will go.
We will have to wait and see how WWE will book The Bloodline and Sami Zayn’s storyline, as Elimination Chamber will be taking place in only two weeks.
