“Nah, this was a one and done, supposed to be” – Jey Uso on why his feud with Roman Reigns has continued beyond Clash of Champions.
Jey Uso’s emergence as the number one contender to Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship left many surprised. Even more surprising is the intrigue the Tribal Chief’s cousin has bought to the mix. A man accustomed to tag team matches had no right to perform like he did in his first ever World title match and yet after Clash of Champions, all people could talk about was Jey.
He will go up against Roman in yet another match. This time they will face each other in a Hell in a Cell match. As if the structure wasn’t a demanding stipulation already, the bout will also be an ‘I quit’ match. But Jey is far from scared. Instead, he is thrilled with the opportunity and everything this experience has taught him about himself.
This is the hottest thing in wrestling right now
“You know uce, when they come to you and they put you in that position, they running with you. It’s the #1 guy and whoever you’re feuding with that’s the #2. As of right now, I’m the #2,” Jey Uso told Peter Rosenberg for ESPN’s Cheap Heat Podcast.
Speaking of his singles run, he said: “It’s a dope transition, I think it’s a good transition to make at this point cause I’ll always revert back to the tag-team game, that’s my ish right there. I do like this singles competition, it’s really making me find out something about myself, uce, that I didn’t know that I could do.”
“Even all the outside stuff, social media, interviews, everything is getting real busy, man. Especially before Clash of Champions and after Clash fo Champions, ain’t no stopping this. If you seen that PPV you know damn well that this is the hottest thing in wrestling right now.”

Jey then revealed that this was supposed to be a one-off match but the emotions they displayed made it the hottest storyline in wrestling right now.
“This was a one and done, supposed to be. They were like ‘this sh*t is fire right here, bro’, You see the storytelling, this is real. The feeling’s right there, the promos right there. If you watch the match back, the match was basic, what grooved is the damn story and that is the main thing. We showing you real emotion, we showing you feeling.
“You can put the Fiend with Roman, you can put Seth Rollins with Roman, whoever, whatever, whatever top guy they got, put him with Roman, I guaran-damn-tee you, uce, they didn’t pull out emotion, they didn’t pull out real feeling, they didn’t pull out storytelling the way me and uce did that thing. Tell me you didn’t feel like you were watching a damn movie, you forgot you were watching wrestling. When I watched it back, I was watching that thing like I wasn’t in it. I was like ‘man, this is good, this is my best work.'”
