The thrilling events in the storyline in WWE keep the spectators glued to their seats. Likewise, an unexpected incident happened last night when Sami Zayn got his chance to fight on his home turf for his shot at the Intercontinental Championship Match at the Clash At The Castle.

The audience welcomed Sami Zayn with loud applause in his hometown. Zayn fought in the Fatal Five Way match. At a point in the match, it looked like Sami was going to win but, at the last moment, Sheamus took the opportunity and won by pinfall. Sheamus will compete against Gunther for the Intercontinental Title.

However, the backstory of Sami Zayn getting the match is much more interesting than the match itself. Last night, when Roman Reigns pulled up in style at the parking lot of the Vancouver Canada arena of WWE, he was alone. Usually, the Tribal chief is accompanied by the USO brothers, but that didn’t happen in last night’s SmackDown.

Trouble at the border for The Usos

The Tribal Chief welcomed Zayn into the Bloodline locker room, encouraging him to bring the championship to the group. Jey Uso called Roman Reigns at that time, only to be answered by Sami Zayn. When Reigns asked what the purpose of the call was, Zayn replied, “Oh yeah, trouble at the border. I don’t think they are going to be here tonight.” It was then revealed that the Uso brothers won’t be coming to the SmackDown to save Roman Reigns. 

The WWE writers pulled out the appearance of the Uso brothers from the show due to legal issues. According to a report from PWInsider, Jimmy Uso was not allowed to cross the border to Canada due to his recent DUI arrest on July 25. Jimmy had the court appearance for the charges on 15 August.

When Roman Reigns entered the arena, to have a face-off with Drew McIntyre, Michael Cole took a dig at Roman. ” For 719 days Roman Reigns has been a World champion, but tonight he looks like a bit naked without The Bloodline,” said Cole. The absence of the Uso brothers cost Roman a Claymore kick from the Scottish warrior. Even the new companion of Reigns, Sami Zayn, failed to protect his Tribal Chief.
