Roman Reigns and The Usos might work together because of their heritage as The Bloodline, but Samoa Joe needs a better reason than heritage to join the group.
Joe and Reigns were once rivals in WWE with Joe being one of the men accused by Reigns for trying to murder him in the summer of 2019. Joe's name was eventually cleared in the storyline and Joe's involvement tailed off from there.
Speaking to Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT, Joe reflected on the storyline and gave his thoughts on the trio of Reigns and The Usos.
"I think it kind of just unfolded the way it did. Obviously, there’s always these thoughts, but yeah, I don’t think there really were [any other plans]. I mean, yeah. I think the same thing could be said for The Usos, we definitely probably could gel and it would work out well, but at the same time, we’re all real individual personalities and I’d hate to be grouped with a bunch of people just because we share the same cultural heritage. That’s weird, in this day and age," he said. "We’re all pretty awesome. But it’s not like we’ve got nothing else in common except for one glaring, obvious thing. Why do you want to group us into a group together? Everyone really wants to do that. Everyone wants us in a group together so we’re easily identifiable or something, I don’t know! [laughs]."
Joe teamed with Owens against Rollins & Murphy on WWE Raw, but was pulled mid-match after landing poorly on a dive to the outside. He was evaluated backstage by medical officials and reportedly suffered a concussion.
