Paul Heyman Promises Jey Uso Will Make His Choice On WWE SmackDown

The Wise Man says Jey will decide where his loyalties lie after events of last week.

The Bloodline saga will continue to play out with another expected high-tension, high-stakes family drama on SmackDown this week.

Paul Heyman appeared in a backstage segment on Raw Monday night announcing that Jey Uso would make a "historic choice" on Friday about whether he will join his brother Jimmy after he was drummed out of the Bloodline for attacking Roman Reigns at Night of Champions, or if he will indeed "fall in line" as the Tribal Chief suggested.

The Wise Man offered his usual spoiler, not a prediction, saying that Jey will choose to stand with his brother... Solo Sikoa. He then declared that despite being twins with Jimmy, no bond is stronger than that with the Tribal Chief. Just more gaslighting from Roman through Heyman.


The Bloodline drama has been pure soap opera stuff in recent months, but it's also been among some of the most entertaining stuff WWE has produced. Jey's journey throughout this entire saga has been a meandering one of opposing Reigns, joining him, questioning him, rejecting Sami Zayn, accepting him, contemplating leaving the Bloodline, and finally falling in line.

Now, he faces his toughest decision about whether to stand with his brother or once again fall in line behind Roman. If he sides with Jimmy, it would likely set up the rumored Usos/Roman & Solo tag match at Money in the Bank.


That alone makes SmackDown as close to a must-see as it can get, but it also begs the question of how much juice does WWE have left in this Bloodline saga? Surely at some point, they're going to run out of twists and have reduced reactions. But for now, this is really enjoyable stuff.
