The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, is set to return to the ring for his first televised title defense since Wrestlemania 39 at the much-anticipated SummerSlam. Aiming to reclaim his glory after a surprising defeat by Jey Uso at Money in the Bank, Roman now faces a new challenge – his own cousin.
However, the plot thickens as Jimmy Uso, Roman‘s intended opponent, has been sidelined due to a genuine injury. Sources reveal that Jimmy suffered a ruptured rib cartilage injury, which was a result of an assault by his former stable.
Despite the setback, rumors indicate that Jimmy Uso’s injury is being cleverly woven into the storyline. The wrestling world is buzzing with speculation that he will remain off television temporarily to heighten the drama surrounding the upcoming match.
Interestingly, this turn of events harkens back to a similar situation years ago when Jey Uso was granted an opportunity to face Roman Reigns. At that time, Jimmy Uso was also sidelined due to injury, and now, history seems to be repeating itself, coming full circle with an intriguing twist.
As we await the unfolding of The Bloodline saga, fans can’t help but wonder if Jey Uso possesses the strength and determination required to overcome the formidable Roman Reigns in this intense showdown.
What happened to Jimmy Uso during the WWE Smackdown?
Chaos erupted at WWE SmackDown’s Tribal Court of Roman Reigns last week, leaving fans in shock and wrestlers injured. The tension escalated as The Usos confronted Roman Reigns about their grievances with him. Unexpectedly, Reigns announced that he was stepping down from leading the faction, passing the torch to Jey Uso. However, in a jaw-dropping twist, he dealt a low blow to Jey, setting off a chain of events that no one saw coming.
With Reigns and Sikoa by his side, a brutal assault ensued on the Usos. Jey Uso could only watch helplessly as his own brother, Jimmy, bore the brunt of the relentless attack.
As the dust settled, Jey rushed backstage while his injured brother was carefully stretchered out of the arena, as mentioned on the Wrestlezone. The extent of Jimmy Uso’s injuries was uncertain at that moment, prompting immediate hospitalization for a thorough medical evaluation.
Wrestling fans are left anxiously wondering about Jimmy’s condition and whether he will need time off to recover from the assault or he will jump right at it!
