– Tonight’s WWE Raw opened with The Bloodline of SmackDown – Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman, and Sami Zayn making their way to the ring. Reigns stands tall with the title and calls on Brooklyn to acknowledge him. Reigns says he likes to move forward and not dwell on the past, but he can’t seem to get over what happened Friday. Reigns recalls something his father told him a long time ago – the loudest in the room is also the weakest in the room, so in his mind if you’re the loudest int he room and part of The Bloodline, that just makes you a fool. 
Reigns calls Jey Uso up and asks if he’s a fool. Reigns speaks to Jey but Sami quickly interrupts. Heyman yells at Sami for interrupting The Tribal Chief. Fans chant for Sami.

Reigns says Sami really is the Honorary Uce and says Jey is all Sami’s, go ahead.
Fans chant for Sami again. Sami says Jey here’s the thing buddy – we all love you very much, you are family, but Reigns and I were talking about our future direction the other night, it was a pretty good talk and we connected. Reigns is still staring at Sami and laughing. Sami says “we” feel like Jey’s behavior as of late hasn’t been very Uce-y. Fans chant “Uce-y!” now. 
Sami points to how everyone loves Jimmy Uso and how he has such a great smile, and how can you not love Solo? Sami says they’re all pretty cool so they need Jey to be cool as well. Can you do that? Jey looks at Reigns. Reigns says don’t look at me. Jey asks Reigns if this is a joke, if he’s ribbing him. Sami interrupts Jey and says he hates to be this guy, but Jey kind of… the music interrupts and here comes Matt Riddle.
Riddle says they should be talking about Saturday, not Friday, when he made Seth Rollins tap out in the Fight Pit, bro. Riddle says he knows Reigns has beat him before and due to a stipulation, he can’t challenge him for the title… but come on. Riddle wants a match with Reigns, for the title, tonight. Fans chant “Bro!” now. Reigns asks Brooklyn if Riddle should get one more chance. They want the match but Reigns says no, a deal is a deal and Riddle needs to get back to the back of the line. 
Riddle says if Reigns won’t step up to the plate, maybe one of his Bloodline Bros will. Fans chant for Sami. Jey encourages Sami to step up and face Riddle. Sami asks Riddle if he thinks he’s funny, and Riddle does. Sami yells at Riddle for saying “yeet!” but he says it again. Jey says Sami is being disrespected, so he should handle his business.
