In an explosive WWE SmackDown episode leading up to the Night Of Champions event, Jimmy Uso left the WWE fandom and fellow members of The Bloodline utterly astonished as he audaciously declared himself The Tribal Chief, a title formerly reserved solely for Roman Reigns.
On the night's card was The Kevin Owens Show, featuring guests Roman Reigns and Solo Sikko, hosted by the ever-combative duo Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Despite the anticipation, Reigns and Sikko were notably absent, their absence filled instead by Paul Heyman.
The indomitable Heyman emphasized that The Tribal Chief graces the ring when he chooses, not at the beck and call of others.
Usos Disrupt Heyman's Introduction
However, the evening was far from smooth sailing. The Usos, unexpected visitors, disrupted Heyman's heralding of Reigns.
Ascending the ring to face Owens and Zayn, the Usos were taunted as mere puppets, executing commands only at the whim of Roman Reigns. The derisive comment labeling Jimmy Uso and his brother as Reigns' 'errand boys' was the last straw for Jimmy.
Assertively, he seized the microphone, declared the Usos, the world's top tag team, and shockingly pronounced himself The Tribal Chief. His audacious claim sent shockwaves throughout the WWE Universe, sparking rampant speculation on social media.
This incident has stirred questions: could Jimmy Uso's newfound boldness spell doom for The Bloodline? Over recent weeks, Jimmy has grown reluctant to remain within the stable. His discontent was further apparent when Paul Heyman declared that Reigns and Solo Sikoa would challenge for the Tag Team Titles at the Night Of Champions, leaving the Usos displeased.
Several WWE fans suspect that The Bloodline's unity is hanging by a thread, with Reigns and his Special Counsel scrambling to retain control. There have been earlier indications of discord, but Jimmy Uso's self-proclamation appears to be a critical breaking point.
His conspicuous absence from the family celebration after SmackDown suggests he may question his place within The Bloodline. Fans are now eagerly anticipating the Night Of Champions, speculating that the end of the faction may be imminent. Yet, as is often the case in the WWE Universe, we must patiently watch as the drama unfolds.
