In the ring are Paul Heyman & Solo Sikoa. Before Paul could finish Jey Uso comes to join them.

Jey tells Solo he doesn’t know if he can forgive him for what he did to Jimmy. Paul tells Jey that Roman wants to groom him to be the next Tribal Chief and Jimmy knew that and resents him for that. To prove it to him, he has scheduled him as the right-hand man to face Austin Theory and beat him for the United States Championship.

Paul tells him he needs his answer now. Jey looked at Solo and looked at Paul while Paul held his hand out to shake. Jey said he will take him up on that United States Championship offer but he will get back to him on the handshake.

In the locker room, Paul Heyman is talking to Jey Uso again. This time Jey said he doesn’t know why Paul is so happy because if he is in the Bloodline, that means Paul is out of the Bloodline.
