As tension rises between the members of The Bloodline week after week, it seems to be on the verge of collapsing. The segment that transpired this week on SmackDown added fuel to the fire. Jimmy Uso likely screwed up when he claimed himself as the Tribal Chief. This was probably inevitable, as Roman Reigns has been constantly infuriating The Usos for a long time now.
On the May 26 episode of WWE SmackDown, Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso interrupted the KO Show hosted by Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn. During the segment, Owens praised the Usos and called them the heart of the table, which Roman claims to be the head of. He further exclaimed that he did not understand why they continued to follow Reigns’ orders.
During the promo segment, Jimmy Uso grabbed the microphone and claimed to be “The Tribal Chief.” The whole WWE universe was shocked and so was Paul Heyman. There was a moment of pause because the fans knew the consequences of that statement. It was definitely a bold statement from Jimmy. As a result, Roman Reigns entered the ring to confront The Usos.
During the confrontation, Zayn told Reigns it was a doomsday scenario and that he was causing the The Bloodline to collapse. He further provoked Reigns by saying that he wouldn’t win the Undisputed Tag Team Championship at Night of Champions. The Usos and Solo Sikoa used the numbers to their advantage to lay out Owens & Zayn after Owens hit Reigns with a stunner.
Roman Reigns can not tolerate anyone challenging his status as the Tribal Chief. He has been carrying the persona of the “Head of the Table” for years now. Reigns has been passionately defending his position as the faction’s leader. The 38-year-old never accepted even the slightest disagreement with his views that other members could have had.

The Usos likely to betray Roman Reigns at Night of Champions
There has been speculation that The Usos may betray Roman Reigns this Saturday. They could derail Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa’s undisputed tag team championship match against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. This is possible as The Bloodline is slowly disintegrating from within. Fans have witnessed in recent weeks that Reigns has not been treating The Usos well.
The 38-year-old appeared irritated with them for losing their tag team titles at Wrestlemania 39. Following this week’s drama in which Jey Uso claimed to be the “Tribal Chief,” it’s possible that he’ll lash out at Night of Champions. This might set up a match between the The Usos and Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa at Summerslam 2023.
The Bloodline’s storyline is just getting more exciting week by week. The unexpected twists and turns are keeping the fans hooked and entertained. The storyline has been getting a lot of praise and popularity from the WWE Universe. The fans would be eagerly waiting to see what unfolds next for The Bloodline.
