Jey Uso made his in-ring return on this week’s WWE RAW in Norfolk, marking his first match since his defeat in the Tribal Combat main event against the undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, at WWE SummerSlam.
On this week’s RAW, Mr. Main event started the show by entering the ring to an enthusiastic reception. He expressed his relief at being independent of The Bloodline and now a part of RAW.

As he continued, Kevin Owens swiftly interrupted. Owens shared his own experiences, mentioning how he used to do questionable things but has since aimed to change and make amends.
Roman Reigns is receiving accolades from fans for his role in transforming Jey Uso, originally a tag team specialist, into a main event singles star. A fan posted on X: “This is why Roman Reigns is the greatest WWE superstars of all time”. Another fan wrote, “Roman Reigns got him to this point if he didn’t pin him they wouldn’t take him as serious”. (Via-X)
Currently, Dominik Mysterio is enticing Jey to join Judgment Day, and the unfolding events in the coming weeks will determine how that plays out.
Massive storyline in the works for Jey Uso at the upcoming WWE event
If recent reports hold true, WWE may plan an encounter between Jey and Jimmy Uso at the Royal Rumble event next year. Subsequently, Jey would transition back to the SmackDown roster.
The storyline between Jey and Jimmy is currently one of WWE’s most gripping narratives. Jimmy’s betrayal occurred during Jey’s match against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at SummerSlam 2023.

In response, Jey Uso declared his departure from the promotion but was reintroduced as a member of the RAW roster by Cody Rhodes at Payback 2023. However, indications point to a potentially brief stint for Mr. Main event on the red brand, as WWE intends to further develop the feud between Jey and Jimmy Uso.
According to a recent report from Xero News, WWE has been plotting a storyline between the brothers during the 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble match, where they would engage in a confrontation.

Furthermore, reports indicate that this sequence would be succeeded by Jey Uso’s return to the Friday Night show. If these developments are any indication, it becomes evident that the promotion is earnestly considering a headline match between the brothers at WrestleMania 40, where they would engage in a high-profile showdown.
