WWE has announced that WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will be present on Friday Night SmackDown tonight in order to reveal the consequences for his Hell in a Cell Match this Sunday.
Reigns, who will defend his coveted prize against cousin Jey Uso in an ‘I Quit’ Hell in a Cell Match, promised that there would be severe consequences for rising up against him a second time should Uso fail to topple ‘The Tribal Chief’.
The official WWE statement reads:
The long-standing family rivalry between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Jey Uso was only intensified when Uso refused to acknowledge his cousin as The Tribal Chief. And now, following a vicious altercation between them last week on the season premiere of SmackDown, The Big Dog will reveal the consequences for what he’s promised will be the highest stakes in WWE history.
What will Reigns have to say before their Universal Championship Hell in a Cell “I Quit” Match this Sunday on the award-winning WWE Network? Will his reveal bring Uso closer to bending the knee to his Tribal Chief?
Find out when Friday Night SmackDown airs tomorrow at 8/7 C on FSI.
Devotees have been buzzing on social media as to what these consequences could be. Ideas have ranged from Jey Uso not being able to challenge for the gold again while Roman sits at the head of the table, to The Usos being forced to join Reigns against their will.
This isn’t the first time a potential Bloodline faction has been mooted since the Roman/Jey storyline began. The faction has been hinted at in several interviews with Reigns and The Uso’s and was even referenced by The Rock when asked his opinion on working with his family member.
