Jey Uso rise to the top as a Main Event star

Jey has been a star in the WWE since making the main roster. However, since his move to RAW and betraying Roman Reigns and The Bloodline, he has become a hot commodity. Immediately joining forces with Cody Rhodes on RAW elevated him as a babyface. His feud with The Judgment Day and winning the trust of Sami Zayn have fans interested in the 38-year-old star.

The continuing feud with his brother Jimmy and cousin Reigns is still a focal point of his storyline. With Reigns back from his brief hiatus, it is a matter of time until the two end up in the squared circle again. With Dwayne The Rock Johnson around as well, this could be very interesting.
