Jey Uso acknowledged that there are probably a lot of superstars on the RAW roster who don’t want him there and revealed that it was, in fact, former AEW EVP Cody Rhodes who pulled the strings to get him back after a three-week absence.
He was then confronted by the man he betrayed earlier this year – Sami Zayn. Zayn, who wasn’t with Kevin Owens, was surprisingly welcoming to Jey, telling him that he was proud of him for breaking away from The Bloodline. Jey acknowledged the betrayal by asking, “It wasn’t very Ucey of me, was it?” The two men then embraced.
Sami Zayn is coming off a loss to The Judgment Day, where he and Kevin Owens lost the Undisputed Tag Team titles. However, with Owens absent, he decided to be the first one to welcome Jey to the brand.
