Jimmy Uso made his return to WWE tonight on SmackDown, confronting Roman Reigns over his recent attitude.
He returned at the start of tonight’s show, being introduced by Reigns, who said he would “replace” the banished Daniel Bryan. Later, after being confronted about playing a part in Cesaro scoring a match against Reigns at WrestleMania Backlash, Jimmy refused to be told down to, saying he wasn’t Roman’s bitch. At the end of the show, Jimmy brought up being attacked by Roman Reigns last year at Hell in a Cell. After Roman gave him an ultimatum to fall in line or go home, Cesaro attacked Reigns and Jey. Although he interfered on their behalf, Jimmy was also laid out.
Jimmy has been out of action for over a year, last wrestling at WrestleMania 36, suffering a knee injury in a singles triple threat ladder match over the SmackDown Tag Team titles that also featured John Morrison and Kofi Kingston. This allowed Jey Uso to branch out as a singles wrestler, first feuding with Roman Reigns upon his return from a hiatus and later joining his side after accepting him as the “head of the table”.
