WWE SmackDown kicked off with the one and only ‘Tribal Chief’ Roman Reigns. Of course, Reigns did not come out alone and had his Special Counsel and right-hand man, Paul Heyman and Jey Uso, alongside him. Reigns sent a loud and clear message to Cesaro ahead of their match on Sunday and then set his sights on his cousin, Jimmy Uso.

This week, Jimmy Uso interrupted Roman Reigns as the latter sent a message to Cesaro ahead of their match. Jimmy said all he could hear was Roman running his mouth, and Jey Uso acting like his b***h.

He added that he’s unsure if Roman will even make it past the ‘Swiss Cyborg’ at WrestleMania Backlash.

Jimmy Uso continued that Roman Reigns might be a part of their family, but he isn’t all of it. Just as he said that, Reigns’ displeasure was evident. In fact, it seemed like he would even attack Jimmy if the latter goes beyond his line. And guess what? Jimmy did cross the line.

The other half of The Usos said Roman can’t beat Cesaro on his own. But he can beat him together with his brother, Jey. He then asked Roman what if they win the Tag Team Titles and he loses the Universal Title? Will they become the new ‘Head of the Table’ or ‘Tribal Chiefs?’

This statement didn’t sit well with Roman Reigns. He couldn’t control himself and snapped at Jimmy Uso. Luckily, he didn’t get physical and only shut him up with his words. He said, “That’s not how it works! That’s not who you are! That’s not your part, that’s not your position.”

“Understand this, I’m who I’m and you are who are. I’m the Head of the Table, I’m the Tribal Chief. I’m the Universal Champion. 5-time WrestleMania main event. I’m the one that puts the food on the table. I’m the one that carries the burden of this company, I’m the face of this company and responsibility that you’ve never handled,” Reigns concluded.
