Jey Uso Breaks Down Why He Betrayed Sami Zayn

Jey Uso addresses the crowd on SmackDown.

So far 2023 has been a rough year for The Bloodline. Although Roman Reigns is still the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, the situation involving Jey Uso and Sami Zayn threatened to undermine all of their hard work.

At the Royal Rumble, the problems within the faction came to a head and Sami Zayn broke free of the group smashing Reigns with a steel chair. In the aftermath, Zayn was beaten to the ground, but Jey Uso stood back and eventually left the ring.

What followed was weeks of uncertainty. While The Bloodline worked to get Jey back into the fold, Zayn tried to reason with the conflicted star. However, on the March 6th episode of Raw, it was revealed that his efforts were for nothing.

After appearing through the crowd, Jey inadvertently cost Jimmy a match against Zayn before appearing to snub his brother after the bell. Jey then embraced Zayn to huge cheers, only to Superkick him and reunited with Jimmy and The Bloodline.

On SmackDown, The Usos came to the ring and Jey promised to explain his actions. As it turned out his explanation was simple. Jey blamed all of the Bloodline’s problems on Sami and said he turned his back on the star because he had to. Jimmy needed help, so he did what needed to be done because that’s what families do.

The pair then turned their attention to Cody Rhodes, which brought out the American Nightmare. After some back and forth Zayn rushed into the ring and tackled Jey. With the brawl underway the action spilled to ringside. Rhodes and Zayn eventually gained the upper hand and stood tall in the ring as the show went off the air.

Jimmy And Jey Uso Still Undisputed Tag Team Champions

Through the chaos, Jimmy and Jey Uso have retained their World Tag Team gold. The pair won the SmackDown titles at Money in the Bank in July 2021, before adding the Raw titles in May 2022. The brothers are the longest-reigning WWE Tag Team Champions in history.
