Looks like Roma Reigns and Jey Use are teaming up once again on tonight’s WWE Smackdown to face off with Sheamus and King Corbin in a new stipulation.
A day after AEW Dynamite had a street fight, this match was labeled a Samoan Street Fight, which is meant to play on Reigns and Uso’s heritage.
We assume there are various things added into this, and it could have already been planned, but the timing is a little circumspect for fans.
Still, this should have some drama in it between whether Reigns will be there at the start for once, and how soon will he turn on Jey?
It's a Samoan Street Fight!

For us, it’s not about if there’ll be a betrayal, but when and how many times.
While there’s little doubt that Reigns and Uso will win, we expect Reigns to allow his cousin to serve his tribal chief and take on Sheamus and Corbin himself for the most part, only stepping in when he has to.
This will continue to wear Jey down and allow Reigns to further establish himself as the dominant one by stealing the win again.
But will it end here?
We’re waiting for Reigns to turn on Jey and attack him.
It feels right for it to happen tonight so the two can jaw back and forth next week to set up their match.
Jey will be grateful, but feel like he’s being used, which he is. And Reigns will feel like he’s giving Jey a chance and Jey has to work to earn it.
Reigns turning on Jey will help elevate him as a face, and that’s something WWE Smackdown definitely needs at the moment.
They’re short of faces and legitimate stars, so it’s not a surprise they’re experimenting to tread water until their next draft in October.
Of course, there’s always the chance that Corbin and Sheamus end up winning, which will be by pinning Jey, which will cause Reigns to looks down on him heading into next week.
This will allow family tension to create some drama for the Clash of Champions pay-per-view match.
The WWE has a long history of using family bonds and drama to sell storylines and tickets, so it’d make sense since that’s that the promotion likes to do.
It should make things interesting for Jey to be the first sacrifice for Reigns’ Universal Championship run.
