The WWE stable known as the Bloodline is highly regarded within the organization. Its notable members consist of Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Solo Sikao, Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, and Sami Zayn. Reigns holds the title of “Tribal Chief” within the faction, while Heyman serves as the wise advisor.
The creation of this notorious group is one of the most captivating storylines in WWE. But what sparked its beginning? And how did Reigns become a crucial member of the faction?
“The Bloodline” has become increasingly prominent.
The initial addition to the group was Jey Uso, who joined the stable first. In 2020, Jey Uso and Roman Reigns went head to head in a Hell in a Cell showdown. Despite his defeat, Jey Uso aligned with Roman Reigns in July 2021. For some time, the stable consisted of only Roman Reigns, Jey Uso, and Paul Heyman.
Jimmy Uso had not yet accepted Reigns as the Tribal Chief. During the July 9th, 2021 episode of SmackDown, the Uso brothers officially joined forces with their Tribal chief and Jimmy Uso joined the stable.
The Usos were rapidly rising in the hierarchy as they triumphed over the father-son duo of Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. They also emerged victorious against the tag team RK-Bro, made up of Randy Orton and Matt Riddle. Meanwhile, Roman Reigns claimed the title of undisputed champion by defeating Brock Lesnar. In mid-2022, Sami Zayn became an honorary member of the group known as the ‘Honoury Uce’, while in September of the same year, The Usos’ real-life younger brother Solo Sikoa also joined their faction.
Dwayne Johnson and Roman Reigns have received tragic news as a member of their real-life family has passed away. Fans are sending their condolences as they mourn the loss.
Paul Levesque’s involvement with Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns in the creative process has gained a lot of support from fans for the faction. However, fans were surprised to see the faction fall apart.
The fall of The Bloodline
There were significant developments at this year’s Royal Rumble event. Reigns, who had been subjected to a brutal attack by most of the stable members, instructed Zayn to strike Kevin Owens. However, Zayn had a change of heart and decided to use a steel chair to attack Reigns instead. As a result, Zayn left the faction and Jey Uso distanced himself from The Bloodline.
The situation escalated when Sikao nearly used a Samoan Spike on Jey Uso during a six-man tag team match. Later on, Solo Sikao and Roman Reigns issued a challenge to Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn for the Undisputed Tag Team championship. With the Usos in their corner, the events took an unexpected turn.
Solo Sikoa was unintentionally struck with a superkick by The Uso Brothers. This event ultimately resulted in a tag team match between Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa against The Uso Brothers. However, Jey Uso made the decision to depart from The Bloodline, as he was tired of fighting with his brothers and was considering leaving WWE altogether. Fortunately, Cody Rhodes stepped in and helped him join Monday Night Raw. Now that the true motives behind The Bloodline’s creation have been exposed, it is intriguing to see what the future holds for Jey Uso and Roman Reigns.
It was disheartening to witness the departure of the most faithful Uso from The Tribal Chief’s side. Share your thoughts in the comments about the potential motives for Jey Uso leaving The Bloodline.
