Triple H is announced and comes to the ring for the celebration of Roman Reigns’ championship reign. Triple H then announces The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, who comes to the ring with Paul Heyman and Solo Sikoa. Triple H then congratulated Roman for surpassing 1000 days as champion and presents him with a brand-new WWE Undisputed Championship. Roman then holds up the new title and Triple H helps him snap it on his waist.

Roman is all smiles and says the entire Universe acknowledge me. Right after he said that the Usos music hits and they are shown on the stage.

Back from break, The Usos are now in the ring and Jimmy is staring at Roman. Roman tells Jey to kick him in the face. Jey just walks back and forth in the ring. Roman says kick him in the face and fix this right now. Jimmy then grabs the microphone and says the only one that needs fixing around here is you. Jimmy says he did what he did as a brother and lately Roman hasn’t been such a good brother.

Jimmy then tells Roman he has gone crazy. Jimmy then says he is Jey’s brother, and he is Solo’s brother, and he has their backs and after Roman is done using him, he will do the same thing to him.

Solo then takes the microphone and says I acknowledge you my Tribal Chief but these two right here they are my brothers. And walks over to the Usos. Jimmy then asked Roman if he wanted to run this thing together with respect of stand on his island as the Tribal Chief all alone. Roman steps to him and starts yelling to shut his mouth and Jimmy pushes him away to the side of his face.

Roman again starts to go after Jimmy but Jey stops him and tells Jimmy he is doing it wrong.  Jey then tells Jimmy he needs him and turns to Roman and says I need you and we cannot fight like this; we are better than that and we are family.

Jimmy then says Jey is right and says Jey is his brother and Solo is his brother and so are you Roman. We are stronger together so let’s run this place like we have been doing. Jimmy says let’s do this we are still the Bloodline we are still the ones. Roman then grabbed him and they hugged for a minute Roman then said no. As they stepped away from each other Solo gives Jimmy a Samoan Spike. Jey kneels down by Jimmy as he stares at Solo as Roman exits the ring. Solo soon follows. As they pause up the ramp, Paul asks Tribal Chief what about Jey? Roman says Jey will do what he always does he will fall in line.
