Jey Uso Explains His Betrayal Of Sami Zayn On WWE SmackDown
Jey Uso broke hearts and nearly the jaw of Sami Zayn when he dropped him with a super kick on Raw and now he has said that he had “no choice” but to betray the one-time Honorary Uce.
Sami Zayn famously slammed a chair into the back of Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble leading to a huge split in The Bloodline. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa instantly pounced on Zayn showing their allegiance to The Tribal Chief but Jey Uso walked away.
On Raw in Boston, The Bloodline was in action as Kevin Owens took on Solo Sikoa. Sikoa was disqualified when Jimmy Uso interfered with Sami Zayn heading to the ring to even up the sides. Even still, Owens rejected Zayn’s olive branch once again.
Later in the evening, Zayn was in action against Jimmy Uso when Jey Uso made his presence felt in the crowd. The distraction to his brother was enough for Sami Zayn to pick up the win but things were far from over.
Jey Uso walked away from his brother and embraced Sami Zayn before he dropped the former Honorary Uce with a superkick, leading the three-on-one beatdown. It wasn’t Kevin Owens who came to Zayn’s rescue but rather Roman Reigns’ WrestleMania opponent, Cody Rhodes, who chased off The Bloodline to end the heartbreaking show.
On SmackDown in Pittsburgh, Jey Uso sought to explain his actions and says when it came down to choosing between family and anything else, there was little else he could do:
“Y’all wanna know why I did it? Because I had to. I didn’t want to do it. I had no choice. I never had a choice because he [Jimmy Uso] is my blood, my twin, and my brother. You, Sami, are not. And neither are any of you.
“Y’all wanna blame me? You don’t know what I’m going through here. There’s one person I blame that is you, Sami Zayn.”
The Usos then turned their attention to Cody Rhodes who faces Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 39, saying they want to injure The American Nightmare. That brought Rhodes out and in the face of a two-on-one battle, Sami Zayn appeared from nowhere to take down Jey Uso.
Rhodes and Zayn ran off the WWE Tag Team Champions to end the show with the belief that Zayn will team with Kevin Owens to face The Usos for their gold on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
