WWE SmackDown Preview and Predictions: Jimmy Uso is back
It’s expected that Jimmy Uso will return to SmackDown. Inquiring about The Bloodline’s status, Kayla Braxton spoke with Paul Heyman during Friday’s SmackDown. Heyman stepped aside to answer a phone and refused to disclose further information. When he got back, Heyman said he found out Jimmy Uso was going to make a return appearance on SmackDown the following week.
In Jimmy Uso’s appearance in the previous segment, he was challenged by Jey Uso about his treason at SummerSlam. He gave an explanation, saying that he was acting to prevent Jey from rising to the rank of tribal head, similar to Roman Reigns as A**h*le. Jimmy insists it was his duty to do so, as he loves Jey Uso. But this foolish explanation didn’t work for Jimmy, and the segment concludes with Jey Uso delivering Superkick to his dear brother. After Jey gave Jimmy a superkick and announced his exit from WWE, the segment came to a close.

The schedule for next Friday’s show also includes a match between Rey Mysterio and Grayson Waller.
