The Usos save Roman Reigns from another dog food incident

WWE rolled out a newsy edition of SmackDown on Jan. 3. The show featured returns from Sheamus & John Morrison, but we also got the first appearance by Jimmy & Jey Uso since last July.

It happened at the end of the night, after The Fiend teleported into the main event. The Universal champ brushed off some offense by his Royal Rumble challenger Daniel Bryan, then slammed him through a barricade while delivering the Mandible Claw.

After he teleported away again, Bryan’s tag partner Roman Reigns went to check on him.

Dolph Ziggler used that opportunity to blind side the Big Dog. Ziggler and his tag partner King Corbin then got the handcuffs & dog food out, looking to recreate a scene from last month (or maybe set the stage for some upcoming “Loser Eats Dog Food” house show matches).

That was when Reigns’ cousins made their return, sending the heels running and freeing Roman.

Jimmy & Jey are still technically listed as Raw Superstars on WWE’s roster page, but we all know the company bends the rules as needed to do whatever they want or need to on television.

Will The Bloodline remain affiliated for a program with Corbin & Ziggler (and maybe an off-suspension Bob Roode)?

We’ll let you know as soon as we find out. In the meantime, check up on everything that happened during an eventful SmackDown in our live blog here.
