Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns & SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos lost to Drew McIntyre, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods in a six-man tag match after this week’s RAW went off the air.
McIntyre evaded a spear from Reigns, and then connected with the Claymore on Jey Uso for the pinfall victory.
At one point, Paul Heyman got upset over some fans at ringside taunting him, which led to Reigns consoling his Special Counsel. As seen below, Reigns hugged Heyman while asking the vocal fans to pipe down. Heyman has recreated the exact moment in several other dark matches in recent months.
This week’s RAW ended with The Usos dropping RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton with a double superkick. As noted, The Usos vs. RK-Bro is expected to be a Title Unification Match, possibly at the upcoming WrestleMania Backlash premium live event. On last week’s SmackDown, Roman Reigns urged The Usos to bring RK-Bro’s RAW Tag Team Titles to The Bloodline. The storyline continued on this week’s RAW as The Usos defeated The Street Profits in the main event, before their confrontation with Orton & Riddle.
