On last night's SmackDown, The Usos teamed together for the first time since March 2020.
Jimmy Uso had been out of action with a torn ACL until making his return earlier this month. The Usos defeated The Street Profits in last night's opening match. After their win, The Usos went to WWE authority figure Adam Pearce and wanted him to give them a SmackDown Tag Team title shot next week. But when Pearce made the match official, Jey Uso looked concerned.
Roman Reigns wasn't happy about Jey teaming with Jimmy in next week's title match. Reigns reminded Jey that he's "Main Event Jey Uso" now and said that -- as soon as Jimmy came back -- Jey was relegated to the opening match. Reigns said he doesn't want to see Jey go back to the point where people are asking him which Uso he is. Jey told Reigns that he hadn't thought about it like that.
Jimmy and Reigns have been at odds since Jimmy made his return.
It will be The Mysterios vs. The Usos in next Friday's SmackDown Tag Team title match. Last night's show ended with a staredown between the two teams. The Mysterios defending their SmackDown Tag Team titles against Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode was last night's main event. But after an angle where Rey was attacked backstage before the match, Dominik faced Ziggler & Roode on his own. Rey coming out to the stage caused a distraction that allowed Dominik to pin Roode and retain the titles.
Ziggler and Roode claimed that they weren't responsible for Rey being attacked.
The Mysterios vs. Usos Tag Team title match won't be the only championship bout on next Friday's SmackDown. Apollo Crews will also defend his Intercontinental title against Kevin Owens in a match where Commander Azeez will be banned from ringside. Owens defeated Crews by disqualification in a non-title match last night. Azeez caused the DQ by hitting the Nigerian Nail on Owens as Owens was going for the pin.
