If Roman Reigns wins at WWE Hell in a Cell 2020, Jey Uso can never wrestle for a world title

I think this is the softest idea I can come up with, because it’s not necessarily the scariest consequence Jey Uso could face for stepping up to the Big Dog and losing for a second straight Pay Per View match.

But still, it’s a pretty big deal if a competitor can no longer compete for a world title, especially since Jey showed that he belongs in the main event scene over the past month. Roman Reigns’ star power has counted for a lot in the success of this feud, but it takes two to make a great rivalry. And Jey has been a phenomenal babyface, putting together the performance of his life at Clash of Champions.

So it would be quite something for Roman to give Jey a taste of the main event, world title spotlight on Friday Night SmackDown, then brutally take it away from him in what will likely be a Hell in a Cell match.

I’d also like to add that Jey showed his main event quality against a second former multi-time world champion in AJ Styles. Jey pinned him clean on this week’s episode of SmackDown, showing his talent in singles competition against an entirely different opponent.

But what prevents this from having truly high enough stakes befitting of Roman’s chilling words is the simple fact that we have no expectations of Jey Uso ever winning a world title.
