Reigns returned at SummerSlam 2020 after Bray Wyatt defeated Braun Strowman for the Universal Championship title. He speared both of them and stood tall with the title in hand.

However, his primary heel turn surfaced when he was booked against his cousin Jey Uso. When he didn’t spare Uso, everybody knew Reigns had gone over to the dark side. There was very little anybody could but acknowledge him as The Tribal Chief.
