WWE star Jey Uso has been one of the most loved names on the Monday Night RAW roster ever since he made the shift to the red brand. As Jey is arguably the face of RAW now, The Judgment Day has tried continuously to make him join the faction.
Despite efforts by the heel stable, Main Event Jey turned down their offer during last week’s show. Jey’s actions have possibly started a feud between the two parties. But in the midst of this saga, the 38-year-old has hinted at a love triangle with Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio.

Sharing a story on his Instagram, Jey shared a fan-made picture. On one side of the photo is Jey with Ripley, and on the other side, Rhea is seen hugging Dominik. As Jey shared this on his official handle by tagging Dirty Dom, fans have been feeling bad for Rhea’s real-life partner Buddy Matthews.
Sharing that Buddy should jump in this storyline, someone from the pro wrestling audience said, “Where is Buddy in all of this.” “Somebody watch Murphy,” a member of the WWE universe wrote, while suggesting everyone keep a look on Rhea’s fiance. (Via: X)
Even though Main Event Jey has shared this story by himself, it’s uncertain what his intention was behind it. Is he trying to pitch himself as a better option for the Women’s Champion, than Dominik? Or it’s just his way of taking a dig at his rivals from The Judgment Day.
Is WWE really planning a love angle between Jey Uso and Rhea Ripley?
While it’s true that Jey Uso gave a cryptic message through this picture, what WWE’s plans are for the entire storyline are currently unknown. A lot of people initially believed that Jey could join the heel faction because of Rhea Ripley, but that didn’t happen.
The equation of joining the stable was struck away by the fan-favorite, but it’s still possible that he could be involved in a love angle with The Eradicator. Main Event Jey might try to win the trust of Mami and thus provoke her to end her love story with Mysterio, and he can thus start a romantic on-screen angle with Ripley.
WWE may have thought about having Dom, Rhea, and Jey in a love triangle in the coming weeks, but it seems like Dominik is totally against this idea. The NXT North American Champion shared a response to the photo shared by the fan-favorite Uso, and it was a very interesting one.

As the 38-year-old tagged Dirty Dom on his Instagram story, Mysterio added it back, but with a twist. Dominik reposted the photograph on his story by putting a sticker on Main Event Jey’s face, thus showing his annoyance with the picture.
With the two taking shots at each other on social media, it’ll be interesting to see what’ll happen if they come face-to-face on the upcoming episode of RAW. It remains to be seen how this storyline will be handled on the red brand and if we’ll actually get to see a love angle between Jey Uso and Rhea Ripley.
