This past Friday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown saw an in-ring segment take place between Bloodline members Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Paul Heyman as well as “The Viper” Randy Orton, where Reigns named Solo the “Tribal Heir” in case anything happens to him and this clearly upset Jimmy Uso. Orton then challenged Reigns to a match at Royal Rumble for his WWE Undisputed Universal Championship, then tried hitting him with an RKO, but Roman escaped.
