Below are some top WWE & UFC news stories of the day:
– The Bloodline Civil War is still going on. Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship will main event SummerSlam 2023 on August 5th.
During an interview with Muscle Memory, Zilla Fatu (son of late WWE Veteran Umaga) was asked to pick his side in this highly-rated feud.
Zilla picked “Main Event” Jey Uso:
“I got Jey. Team Jey. I got Team Jey. I don’t know, I’m just more built on respect than loyalty. So that’s what, you know, is kinda going on. Roman disrespected Jey and Jimmy.”
Umaga was the brother of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi (father of The Usos and Solo Sikoa).
