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.
Reigns tweeted the following after his win:
The Only Tribal Chief.”
