Roman Reigns and Jey Uso are set to throw down at SummerSlam, and they will have no limits to the violence they will bring each other in Detroit on August 5th. That being said, The Tribal Chief will actually defend his title before that big show in Ford Field.
In a rare house show appearance in Mexico City, Mexico, WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns put his title on the line ahead of his upcoming showdown with cousin Jey Uso at SummerSlam. This was the same event that saw Dominik Mysterio getting booed out of the arena.
The highly-anticipated event, which took place on July 22 at Arena CDMX, was headlined by the legendary Rey Mysterio, who stepped up to challenge the Tribal Chief for the championship. The match came just two weeks before Reigns’ scheduled title defense against Jey Uso on August 5.
As expected, Roman Reigns won the match, and retained his title, solidifying his dominance as the Universal Champion. This marked his second title defense since his monumental victory over Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39 on April 2nd.
While Roman had also successfully retained his title at a live event in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 17th, there had been some criticism from fans due to his lack of televised title defenses, which surpassed 100 days.
Despite this, it’s important to note that the Bloodline storyline has seen significant development and has brought a huge amount of success to the company during this period of Roman’s inactivity with the title. If anything, the Bloodline saga might be remembered as the creative endeavor in company history.
We will have to see how SummerSlam pans out for Roman Reigns as the Bloodline saga continues. Only time will tell how that event goes down in Detroit’s Ford Field on August 5th, but we will have complete coverage of the entire show right here at Ringside News.
