Last updated

In a surprising turn of events, the latest major twist in the Bloodline saga took place at Money In The Bank. Jey Uso handed the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, his first pinfall loss since December 2019 to Baron Corbin.

This victory puts Jey next in line to challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam in Detroit next month.

As the Bloodline story continues to unfold, many fans now see Jey Uso as the man who should ultimately topple the Tribal Chief to become champion. However, it’s not just the fans who feel this way.

Who will beat Roman Reigns? WWE Stars Weigh In

In a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, current Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were asked about who they would want to see dethrone Reigns.

Owens responded, “Either Jey or Jimmy, I think both those guys deserve the world, and both those guys would be fantastic Universal World Champions. I think they’d be a shoo-in for that spot, they’d be great at it, and honestly, with the way everything has progressed, and the new heights they’ve reached, it certainly wouldn’t look out of place.”

Sami Zayn agreed with his tag team partner, adding, “I think from a character and story perspective, it does make sense to see Jimmy or Jey do it. I think a lot of characters have come along throughout the last three years who could have been a very fitting ending. I think I was one, Cody [Rhodes] was one, and even Drew [McIntyre] to a certain extent.”
