The Bloodline is United Again?
Last week, Roman Reigns gave an ultimatum to Jimmy Uso that he will hold him responsible if Jey does not get back into The Bloodline fold. Earlier this week On RAW, Jey teased an union with Sami before hitting him with a superkick. Many fans believe that Jey is just faking a turn on Sami to accomplish bigger plans. Is that the case or is Jey really back with The Bloodline?
