Ever since Roman Reigns returned at WWE SummerSlam, he's reclaimed his spot as the top dog in WWE. His current feud with Jey Uso has been critically praised from a storytelling perspective.
At Clash of Champions, Uso and Reigns battled in a story-driven bout that ended with Jimmy Uso throwing in the towel for his brother, saving him from a further beatdown from his cousin.
Speaking to Peter Rosenberg on Cheap Heat, Jey touched on the feud and why he believes it's the best thing going.
"When they put you in that position, they are running with you. It's the number one guy, and whoever he's feuding with, that's number two. I'm the number two," Jey said about being a singles star now. "It's a dope transition and a good transition to make at this point. I always revert back to the tag team game, that's my ish I do like the singles competition, it's really making me find out something about myself that I didn't know I could do. I can bang with them and hang in there. Everything has been real busy, especially before Clash of Champions. After Clash of Champions, aint no stopping this. If you saw that pay-per-view, you know damn well, this is the hottest thing in wrestling right now. No one ever expected this thing to take off the way it did and we're showing you real emotion. You can put 'The Fiend' with Roman, Seth Rollins with Roman, whatever top guy they got, I guarantee you they didn't pull out emotion and storytelling the way we did. It hit another level. We know how to do this. Tell me you didn't feel like you were watching a movie, you forgot you were watching wrestling."
Jey finished his statement by saying, "The match was basic. What grew was the damn story."
Jey and Roman are set to clash once again at WWE Hell in a Cell in an I Quit match, which will be held inside the Hell in a Cell.
