Chaos ended in tribal court.
The July 7 episode of WWE SmackDown opened with The Usos making the Tribal Court after Jey pinned Roman Reigns at Money in the Bank. Paul Heyman and Solo Sikoa initially faced The Usos first before Reigns made his way separately.
At first, Reigns pulled off Cousins, stating that he was a WrestleMania headliner long before The Bloodline and that he didn’t need the faction. He then claimed to be done with The Bloodline and put his necklace around Jey’s neck. He took off his world title and bowed to J only to have him beat him.
Jimmy went after Reigns in revenge, but was countered by Sekoa. After Sikoa looked at the necklace on the mat, Jimmy Balsamoan hit Spike and picked up the necklace. As Reigns was waiting for Sikoa to hand it over, Jey attacked them both for a moment. Sekoa planted him on the mat and then Reigns hit Jimmy with a Superman Punch.
Sekowa tied J to the ropes while Reigns hit Jimmy with the steel steps at ringside. But once Jey broke free, he continued to punch Reigns until Sikoa punched him again. To finish it off, Sikoa sprays through the advertising desk with Jimmy on top of him.
After the attack, Jimmy was taken out of Madison Square Garden while J stayed by his side.
