Is Jimmy Uso's return to the Bloodline the spark WWE needs right now?

Roman Reigns and Jimmy Uso are speculated to return to WWE together. The two cousins left on hiatus a week apart but are rumored to come back together. Neither of the two stars was present at Money in the Bank in Toronto. Fans are actively trying to find the Samoan cousins together to confirm they may be on the same page.

During the memorial service held for Roman Reigns’ father, the Anoa’i family was seen together and some of the pictures and clips from the event started circulating on the internet. But was Jimmy Uso there?

The memorial service for the Samoan legend was held in private among family members and close friends only. However, some of the moments that were uploaded by these attendees went viral on social media. In various pictures and clips, fans can get a glimpse of their former Tribal Chief, but Jimmy Uso is nowhere to be found.

Poll of the day

Do you think Jimmy Uso will rejoin Roman Reigns and the Bloodline?

Absolutely

No way

Maybe

Only if the storyline demands it

So, to answer the question that you began reading with, the older Uso twin did not get close with his former team leader. Although the reason behind this is unknown, kayfabe may be what’s keeping them apart.

This means that Jimmy Uso was most probably present at the event to pay respect to his uncle one last time, but they were not spotted together to avoid their kayfabe from being blown away. This wasn’t the only instance where the Anoa’i family protected the kayfabe at this funeral.

Roman Reigns gave up his Ula Fala

Due to his absence in WWE, Solo Sikoa gradually took over The Bloodline. The last few SmackDown episodes have been all about the former Enforcer of The Bloodline making advances to assume full control of the family stable. He now has the power to adorn the red Ula Fala that his older cousin used to wear for important events as per the traditions. This means that Sikoa has control over the Anoa’i clan in kayfabe. That’s not the case in real life, but the Samoan wrestling family still respected the storyline.

Reno Anoa’i posted a picture of his father standing with Roman Reigns and one of their uncles, while all three of them wore Ula Fala. The difference was that neither of the garlands was colored red, which is a color usually kept for royalty in the Samoan culture. Reno also called the three men in the frame the ‘chiefs’ of the family. So, the Anoa’i clan respected the tradition and real-life posts while also keeping the kayfabe intact. The same could be going on with Jimmy Uso’s absence from the memorial service.

Could he and Reigns be cooking something behind The Bloodline? Comment your thoughts below.
