To recapitulate, Roman and Uso were up against the babyface duo of Kevin Owens and Otis. Roman set the match up to give KO a lesson in respect.

Unfortunately for Uso, Roman didn’t show up for the match. This meant that he was left to fend for himself against the confident Owens-Otis duo.

As Owens and Otis cornered Uso, Roman’s music hit. ‘The Tribal Chief’ charged to the ring and took out both the behemoths with an array of offences, saving his cousin in the process.

Roman and Jey soon gained control of the match as they systematically obliterated their opponents. To finish things off for good, Uso went in for his trademark splash.

However, Reigns demanded that Uso tag him in. As Uso looked to comply with the command, KO took advantage of the distraction and nailed him with a stunner.

An enraged Roman entered the ring without tagging himself in and locked in the guillotine choke on Owens. Despite all the other shenanigans that went down in this match, the referee deemed this offence illegitimate and disqualified Roman and Uso.

However, Roman and Uso weren’t done yet. They decimated Kevin Owens with stinging chair shots across his chest and body. To finish things, Uso placed a chair across Owens’ chest and delivered a massive splash on his lifeless body.

Shockingly, Roman backstabbed his cousin before he could get up. Roman planted a chair shot to Uso’s back and closed another eventful episode of SmackDown.
