It’s fair to say the landscape of WWE has changed massively during his time on the sidelines, with his brother Jey and cousin Roman Reigns joining forces to dominate on the Blue Brand.
Of course, we did see Jimmy briefly back in October, when he interfered in the Hell in a Cell match that led to The Tribal Chief putting him in the Guillotine submission.
That, in turn, forced Jey to say ‘I Quit’ and fall in line with Reigns and the pair have been on the same page ever since.
Jimmy made his full return on SmackDown last week but didn’t seem too impressed with the alliance between his brother and cousin.
In fact, his interference in Cesaro’s match with Seth Rollins led to the former picking up the win and earning a shot at Roman’s Universal Title.
However, by the end of the night, when The Swiss Superman jumped Reigns from behind, Jimmy did indeed come to the aid of his brother and his cousin.It seems then, that WWE are planting the seeds for him to join Roman’s stable and according to WrestlingNews, the company have big plans for The Usos.
The next several months are already reportedly mapped out for Reigns and his faction and part of that plan will see Jimmy and Jey win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles from a babyface team.
Currently, the heel duo of Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode hold the gold, which means they would need to drop the belts to a face team soon.‘The Dirty Dawgs’ are set to defend against Rey and Dominik Mysterio at WrestleMania Backlash and if these reports are true, they could lose the gold as soon as this weekend.
It seems WWE do indeed have big plans for Reigns and his stable and their dominance over the SmackDown roster could soon reach another level.
