• Spoiler For Bloodline Storyline On Tonight’s SmackDown
During a backstage interview on last week’s SmackDown after WrestleMania 39, Kayla Braxton asked Paul Heyman if he knows why Brock Lesnar attacked Cody Rhodes on RAW.
Instead of answering the question, Heyman talked about how Roman Reigns is approaching 1,000 days as champion. Jey Uso interrupted and asked Heyman & Solo Sikoa if they have seen Jimmy Uso.
Heyman said The Tribal Chief called Jimmy to talk with him, so Jimmy won’t be here, and that “Main Event” Jey Uso will have to solve the Sami Zayn problem all by himself.
When Jey left, Heyman teased turning on Jey when he said the following to Sikoa:
“Either he solves the Sami Zayn problem tonight or you solve our problems tonight.”
Jey was able to defeat Sami in the main event of the show, after Solo hit Sami with a Samoan Spike behind the referee’s back.
After the match, Solo attacked Sami. Solo was about to hit Sami with another Samoan Spike, but Jey stopped him. Jey & Solo had a face-off, but then Jey said they’re going to do it his way. Jey then superkicked Sami.
RAW Superstar Matt Riddle then made the save for Sami to end the show.
According to WRKD Wrestling, the tension between Heyman & Jey will continue on tonight’s SmackDown:
“Tension between Paul Heyman and Jey Uso will continue to rise even further during SmackDown. Eventually, The Tribal Chief will have his say.”
