WWE SmackDown Fans Losing It Over Sami Zayn Acknowledging Jey Uso

Jey Uso made his WWE return on tonight’s episode of SmackDown, where he would reunite with Jimmy to successfully defend their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships against Braun Strowman and Ricochet. Jey’s story wasn’t over, because later that night Sami Zain would find Jey and thank him for turning his back on Roman Reigns and The Bloodline when they attacked Zayn. Zayn also told Jey that he was going to defeat Reigns and that there was a way out for Jey, then he told Jey that he recognized him. The moment had WWE fans losing their minds, and you can find some of the reactions from the next slide.

Zayn told Jey he recognized him and held out his fist for a punch. Jey didn’t give it back right away and told Zayn he should walk away with it. Zayn kept reaching out and said “I’m leaving” and then Jey hit him with the punch. Zayn turned to leave and Jey walked away.

Earlier that night, Jimmy asked Jey if he was in or out of The Bloodline, and Jey said he didn’t know yet. Paul Heyman overheard this conversation and when Jey left he confronted Jimmy about it without saying he had already heard what was said. Jimmy covered for Jey, and later that night Heyman told Jimmy Reigns not to worry about Elimination Chamber and to stay home. He also indicated what was seen on television.

It remains to be seen what Reigns does with the information, and if they also saw Jey talking to Sami or just the interaction between Jimmy and Jey. Reigns will face Zayn at Elimination Chamber for the undisputed WWE Universal Championship, and it could possibly set up the Tag Match that many want to see happen at WrestleMania.

One theory is that Zayn will be screwed with a win at Chamber, then team up with Kevin Owens to take on The Usos and ultimately take them down. Another theory is that Jey will turn heartbreakingly on Jey in Chamber, costing the match. Both are compelling options, and it could end up being a mix of all of those ideas.
