Jimmy Uso Fails The Tribal Chief In WWE Smackdown Main Event

Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was again absent from WWE Friday Night Smackdown this week. In his sted, his wiseman, Paul Heyman, tried to keep The Bloodline’s affairs in order. At the top of the show, Heyman let Jimmy Uso know that he had to prove himself to Reigns once again after leaving The Bloodline high and dry in the past, by beating AJ Styles in the main event. Of course, Jimmy returned to the WWE fold at SummerSlam, helping Reigns defeat his brother, Jey, but that act has apparently not been enough to fully re-cement himself in The Bloodline mix.

In the main event of Smackdown, Jimmy lost to Styles, and during the match, he hinted to Solo Sikoa, who was standing ringside, that he could use his help. However, the silent Samoan remained neutral toward his requests. Following the match, Sikoa hit the ring, running off Styles, who was met by an attack from The Judgment Day in the entrance ramp area. The purple and black faction then rolled Styles back into the ring, where he was hit with a Samoan Spike from Sikoa.

It was hinted at by the commentators that The Bloodline and The Judgment Day may be working in some sort of alliance, which has been hinted at in the past between the two stables. The show went off the air with Balor grinning and laughing as an angry Sikoa looked on from the ring over a fallen Jimmy. Earlier in the night, Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits confronted The Judgment Day in the ring. As we draw closer to Survivor Series, a show usually based around multi-person matches, it would seem faction warfare is in full effect on Friday night.
