One Comment

  1. WWE overstated jey! Who gone believe, if jey pin the tribal chief with that inefficient super kick or spear, that he brought to his style🙄.
    You need to percieve the past event, when you are designing the future storyline between roman & jey. And, when you remember the past event wether in “I Quit Match” or “Clash of the Castle Match” jey is almost dead. Roman acted like a “Monster”, yeaa he is a “Monster”, but now WWE shifting his character in “Caword”. How is it possible?
    The “Tribal chief” never pinned with any of “Super Kicks” Jey delivered either in “I Quit Match” or ” Clash of the Castle Match”, but before a couple of weeks Jey pinned “The Tribal Chief” with a “Super Kick” . You see this is unrealistic, the storyline should be real, that must convince the audiences. Totally, the story is unfit. “The Tribal Chief” is a “Monster”, who defeated the “Beast” Broke Lesna trio time, “The Winner takes All Match” without the help of Usos. So my question is “How Jey Uso beats ” The Tribal chief”?. The “Tribal Chief” Mastered F5, Suplex City, Claymore, Super Kicks, Arkao, spears from Goldberg & Edge. So ” How Jey can Pinn him”?. WWE must watch the flow of the story between “The Tribal Chief” & “Jey Uso”. The story must be “Real” to convince a person like me!🤔
    I just watch & follow WWE only for a reason watching “Roman or the Tribal Chief”, because i am tired of watching meaningless & unreal storyline. “Jey Never Beats the Tribal Chief” according to the real storyline, if it’s vital to have a feedback!
    Here is Recommendation:
