The WWE universe was abuzz with anticipation as Roman Reigns and Jey Uso faced off at SummerSlam 2023.

The outcome, however, left some fans scratching their heads. Reigns, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, managed to retain his title against Jey Uso.

But the twist in the tale was the unexpected interference by Jey’s twin, Jimmy Uso. Jimmy’s surprise attack on his brother allowed Reigns to seize the moment and secure his victory.

Behind the Scenes: The WWE Perspective

Many fans believed that this was the opportune moment for Reigns to relinquish his championship, especially considering the precedents set by matches involving Sami Zayn and Cody Rhodes earlier in the year.

However, the WWE had a different vision. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer shed light on WWE’s thought process regarding the match’s outcome.

According to Meltzer, there was hardly any chatter within WWE about Jey emerging victorious. The company had long-term plans for Roman Reigns as the reigning champion.

Meltzer emphasized that while arguments could be made about other wrestlers deserving a win, in this case, Sami was in a stronger position than Jey. The direction WWE wanted to take with Cody could have gone either way, but the business metrics indicated that their decisions were on point.

As for Jey Uso’s trajectory, there’s talk about a possible face-off with his twin, Jimmy. This potential match-up is generating significant interest, and fans are eager to see how this sibling rivalry unfolds.
