On the latest episode of WWE SmackDown, The Bloodline leader Roman Reigns discouraged Solo Sikoa from seemingly extending a helping hand to The Usos and taking down current tag team champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
The Usos faced LWO’s Santos Escobar and Rey Mysterio in a tag team match to impress The Tribal Chief. Following a commercial break, fans saw a cut to the backstage area where Reigns, Sikoa, and Paul Heyman were watching the former champions.
The Usos had a point to prove to Roman Reigns, as they have been lambasted by the latter in recent weeks.
During the match, the brothers dominated until Rey Mysterio was all over Jimmy and Jey single-handedly. Jey Uso blasted off with a Frog Splash in the match’s closing moment, but Rey Mysterio kicked out!
In the closing moments, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were out to distract the referee as the latter pushed Jimmy Uso off the apron.

Finally, Rey nailed The Bloodline member with a 619, and Escobar finished it off and pinned Jimmy Uso. Roman Reigns was backstage and didn’t look happy. He also stopped The Enforcer from helping the twins, seemingly widening the already deep cracks in The Bloodline.
It remains to be seen how the dissension within the stable will be sorted out by Reigns.
