In a dramatic and surprising turn of events on Friday's "WWE SmackDown," Jey Uso boldly marked his intentions. Not only was he present to compete, but his primary objective was crystal clear: to snatch the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship from Roman Reigns.
The event kicked off with an intriguing setup, touted as a "Tribal Court," in response to the recent defeat of Reigns and Solo Sikoa at the hands of The Usos during Money in the Bank. Unfolding over a drawn-out segment that spanned over thirty minutes, Reigns, dubbed "The Tribal Chief," questioned the court's legitimacy.

Subsequently, a montage of Reigns' less than stellar moments was displayed, catapulting him into a state of manipulation. Emotions ran high as tears were shed, pleas were made, and Reigns declared with firm conviction, "I don't want this.
I'm done." He then performed an unexpected act. Reigns removed his lei, draping it around Jey's neck, and knelt down, symbolizing his submission. This unanticipated move, however, soon spiraled into a familiar outcome: an explosive clash instigated by Reigns and Sikoa, which culminated in such violence that Jimmy Uso had to be rushed to the hospital.
However, Jey Uso was not so easily dismissed. As the night was drawing to a close, Jey returned, emerging from the crowd to eliminate Sikoa and land a chair shot on Reigns. Reigns hastily retreated, leading Jey to redirect his assault towards Solo, whom he pummeled relentlessly.
In the wake of this chaos, Jey's gaze fell upon Roman's championship belt, still lying untouched in the ring, and a resolute message reverberated through the arena. In an atmosphere bristling with tension, Jey declared with palpable determination as "SmackDown" neared its end, "I don't give a damn about no brothers, no 'Wise Man.'
Just me and you, one on one. You better accept my challenge, so I can whoop your a** one more time." His words, an open challenge to Reigns, promise an exciting showdown in the future.
