Roman Reigns is gearing up for an intense showdown at WWE SummerSlam, as he is set to face off against his own cousin, Jey Uso, in a Tribal Combat match. The highly-anticipated bout was officially announced on SmackDown recently, with a twist that no family members will be allowed to interfere during the fight.
To ensure a fair fight, Reigns made it clear that he won't allow Solo Sikoa, who has been seen as an ally to the Tribal Chief, to intervene on his behalf. This also means that Jimmy Uso, Jey's brother, won't be able to come to his aid at any point during the match.
Behind the scenes, Bobby Lashley has been quietly assembling his own army, seemingly with the sole purpose of taking down The Bloodline. Having faced defeat at the hands of Reigns and his family in the past, Lashley seems determined to assemble a formidable faction to finally dethrone the Tribal Chief.
Reigns Raises Stakes
As the stakes are raised, Reigns shocked the WWE Universe during a contract signing on SmackDown by putting both his coveted title and his esteemed role as the Tribal Chief on the line. This bold move has sparked speculation that if Reigns loses the Championship, he will also relinquish his position as the Tribal Chief.
This development has left fans wondering if this strategic decision is a clever way to write Reigns off television for a few months, as he is not expected to make appearances at any premium live events between SummerSlam and Crown Jewel.
Amidst the rumors swirling around SummerSlam, speculations have also surfaced regarding the potential presence of Bray Wyatt at the event. If the rumors hold true, Wyatt could be looking to reignite his rivalry with Roman Reigns, but WWE's exact plans remain unclear at this point.
With the impending Tribal Combat match and the possibility of a formidable faction led by Bobby Lashley, SummerSlam 2023 is shaping up to be an event of epic proportions. As anticipation builds, WWE fans eagerly await the action-packed event that promises to deliver thrilling surprises and unforgettable moments in the world of professional wrestling.
