Roman Reigns kicks Jey Uso out of the family if he loses at WWE Hell in a Cell 2020

Now we’re talking about stakes! I’m not sure how much I’m comfortable with speculating about this one, but I’ve seen fans wonder if Roman Reigns could give Jey Uso the ultimate dismissal if he doesn’t fall in line, loses badly, and refuses to acknowledge Reigns as the “Tribal Chief”.

The defiant Jey is not going to relent ever. He’s never going to give in to the self-aggrandizing, manipulative Reigns by calling him the “Tribal Chief”, so there’s only one outcome possible at Hell in a Cell.

Jey is going to face the consequences for what Reigns believes is the ultimate act of insubordination. Reigns will eventually pay for his deeds – via the Rock, most likely – but not before he drives a wedge in his own family. With Reigns, it is all about control. He is the mob boss, the leader of the family. And if someone in the family doesn’t want to respect his standing, he has no choice but to act.

Again, if Reigns wants to up the ante and make this one of the most memorable rivalries in WWE history with stakes that truly do beat out any other match we’ve seen in the company, then this is a way to do it. I’d still have to do some thinking on how this would work, but it feels like anything – no matter how dramatic – could happen in this excellent storyline.
