WWE SmackDown ended tonight with a special episode From a KO show featuring undisputed tag team champions Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, it wasn’t long before the show went off the rails. At one point, Owens called Roman Reigns, but Paul Heyman answered the call. Before he could finish talking, The Usos came out to the ring, much to his surprise, and then things got really messy. During the ensuing conversation in the ring, Jimmy was shocking everyone by saying he was the tribal leader, and this led to Reigns walking out to the ring. Things would end up going even further, and in the end, the fractures between Jamie and Reigns were at an all-time high, and this could be the first major step in the bloodline’s collapse.
After Owens called out Reigns, The Usos came to the ring and interrupted Paul Heyman. Heyman tried to win them back but they were already in the ring talking to Owens and Zayn. “You’re here talking like everything’s fine,” said Ji. “As if we haven’t forgotten what you did to us last week. You’re so worried about tomorrow night, but real talk, you’ve got more trouble standing up to Sammy’s face!”

Zayn went to fight back but was stopped by Owens. “No no no no, I get this. You know what. Paul, I just want to give you a little spoiler. I knew Roman wouldn’t come out because I didn’t care. You two were the ones I wanted to talk to,” Owens said. “Months ago, this guy told me we needed The Usos’ help. After everything we’ve done. After everything I’ve done and what happened between all of us. I don’t care, I have to tell you. But if I say what I think, maybe it’ll pass.”
Owens said, “Admit it. He (Sammy) was right about everything all along. He was right about the way Roman Reigns treats you. He was right about what you deserve better.” “Roman Reigns, this narcissistic delusion… calls himself the head of the table. He can call himself whatever he wants, but I’m looking at the heart of that table right in front of me. What do you think the bloodline would be like without you?”
“But he treats you like you’re a table appendage. Like he doesn’t really need you. Look at you guys. He’s using you. You guys think about it. You guys don’t do anything unless Roman Reigns tells Jamie. You know I’m telling the truth.” What’s going on in your head knowing you’re one of the greatest tag team guys in WWE, and there’s no scratching it, more than just being Roman Reigns’ little errand boys,” Owens said.

Jimmy didn’t take it kindly. “Check this out,” Jimmy said, “Zayn, standing right in front of you, is the greatest tag team duo in the world. When it comes to day one, I’m the leader of the tribe.” Heyman’s face was priceless, and then Roman’s music hit as the chieftain stepped out into the ring.
When he got there, Reigns confronted both Jey and Jimmy, knocking the microphones out of their hands and throwing them away. “Hey Roman, you know it’s over right? You know it right? You know the bloodline is falling apart, and it’s all your fault,” Zen said.
Reigns then walked in on Zayn and threw his microphone, and that’s when Owens hit Reigns with the Stunner. Then Zayn hit The Usos and chaos ensued. The tide turned when Solo hit the ring, as he was able to knock out Zayn and then reverse a stunning Owens and spike. Then Reigns fired Zayn, but the drama wasn’t over yet.
The Usos snapped up the tag team titles, causing Reigns to stare at them angrily. Jey will give his titles to Solo, but Jimmy won’t hand the titles to Reigns. Reigns got in the face and J tried to convince Jimmy to dump them, but he wouldn’t. Then Jimmy backed away with the addresses and Jay had to talk to him, almost pulling them away from him. Then Jey gave the titles to Reigns, but there was still some hesitation. Reigns and Sikoa then held the titles, with Jey holding No. 1, but Jimmy wasn’t having any of it, turning his back on the group and heading into a corner, choosing not to join them.
What do you think of the clip, and will Jimmy be the one to cause the bloodline to lose in Night of Champions? Let us know in the comments and as always you can talk all things wrestling with me on Twitter @MattAguilarCB!
