The Bloodline storyline took a surprising turn Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas when Jey Uso turned his back on The Bloodline. The event was one of the most startling in WWE history, and the crowd reacted in bewilderment.
The 39th edition of Royal Rumble lived up to its reputation as one of WWE’s most entertaining PPV events by introducing even more unexpected elements than usual. For the 50,000 viewers, Sami Zayn’s decision to not heed Roman Reigns’ direct order and Jey Uso’s decision to depart were both worth the wait.
How fans reacted to Jey Uso turning his back on The Bloodline?
With The Tribal Chief at the helm, The Bloodline was undeniably one of WWE’s most stunning narratives. Many people, however, thought that the inclusion of Sami Zayn meant that The Bloodline’s dissolution was only a matter of time.
As soon as Jey announced he was leaving The Bloodline, wrestling fans went wild with speculation over whether or not this marked the end of the narrative. The following are some of the most interesting Twitter fan reactions to The Bloodline saga.
“you’re ours. we’re yours. look at this guy! he don’t care about you! he’s dragging you down since day 1. he’s an anchor. I CARE about you. I LOVE YOU. I give you everything. this ring is yours when you’re with the bloodline. otherwise go to jackass shit”
roman to sami. DAMN

Had a few hours to digest that Rumble main event and yeah… the Bloodline saga is the most complete storyline I’ve seen as a wrestling fan.
Every chapter, every new character added, every callback and revelation, WWE elevated this story to heights unseen.

I think in the whole Bloodline storyline, the best actor of the bunch might be Jey Uso.

When the Bloodline story is all said and done Jey Uso needs to be the guy to send Roman packing. In the end Jey can be just as big of a babyface as Sami is.

The crowd cheering and clapping when Jey walked away from the Bloodline just proves how big the pop will be when he beats Roman

Seriously, if WWE puts the Bloodline Saga on DVD or Blu-ray, I'm buying 3 copies.

Super show finish. They destroyed Kevin, Sami hit Reigns with a chair and got destroyed and Jey Uso walked out on the other Bloodline members.

The bloodline story is what everyone is talking about but indie wrestling promoters still wonder why they can’t sell tickets when all they do is book matches for the twitter gifs

Long Term Booking🔥
Sami Zayn saves Kevin Owens & betrays Roman Reigns, Jey Uso walks out, Fuck You Roman chants, The Bloodline destroys Sami Zayn. This was the GREATEST WWE PPV ending ever. #RoyalRumble pic.twitter.com/VlirKrusuv

A 6 year difference between the “Fuck you Roman” chants…
One wasn’t necessary, the other was earned. You can’t convince me Roman Reigns HASN’T busted his ass to get to where he is today, his journey from then up until The Bloodline story has been incredible.#RoyalRumble pic.twitter.com/Rfyq8IWNIH

For The Bloodline, what do you predict? Does this mean the plot has reached its climax, or will there be more surprises in store?
