In the main event of the WWE SummerSlam 2023 premium live event, Roman Reigns defeated Jey Uso in a Tribal Combat match to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and remain The Tribal Chief.

The match saw interference from Solo Sikoa, but that wasn’t enough, as there was a miscommunication between Reigns & Solo, and Reigns accidentally hit Solo with a Spear.

It looked like Jey had Roman beat once again, but Jimmy Uso returned and stopped Jey from pinning Roman.

Jimmy turned heel and superkicked Jey. Roman then speared Jey through a Table set up in one of the corners in the ring and pinned his former “Right Hand Man” to pick up the win and continue his 1,070 day title reign.

On this Friday’s episode of SmackDown after SummerSlam, a “Hail To The Chief” segment is scheduled in which Jimmy Uso is set to acknowledge Roman Reigns as his Tribal Chief and join The Bloodline again.

WWE is obviously gearing up for a first time ever match between Jey and Jimmy.

According to WrestleVotes, at least one WWE writer wants to wait for WrestleMania 40 to do this match:

“Hearing that at least one creative force backstage wants WWE to wait for WrestleMania to do the first Uso ‘Brother vs. Brother’ match.

However that’s unlikely at this point I’m told, with the feeling that 35 weeks is too long of a stretch.”

Jey vs. Jimmy will likely take place at the Payback premium live event, which will take place on September 2nd.
