WWE has been dominated by The Bloodline for the final 12 months, thanks largely to Roman Reigns and The Usos unifying singles and tag group championships.
Whereas that has helped strengthen the faction’s recognition and given the corporate a prime act to construct round, it has left the Uncooked and SmackDown manufacturers with out prizes for his or her unique stars to battle over.
The purple model, specifically, has been hit hardest contemplating The Bloodline are nonetheless technically a SmackDown act. The tv product has suffered considerably, and the absence of championships is extra obvious throughout reside occasions.

After months of increase Finn Bálor, Damian Priest, Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley as a dominant faction on Uncooked, it feels just like the time has come to crown them by the use of some championship gold.
There is no higher place to do it than a high-profile, WWE Uncooked XXX broadcast celebrating the wealthy historical past of the flagship present. The win additional establishes The Judgment Day as a pressure whereas starting what must be a gradual decline for The Bloodline within the coming months.
Splitting the tag group titles would solely add to Reigns’ paranoia in current weeks as he watches all he has constructed since August 2020 start to crumble. He’ll undoubtedly take it out on his cousins, creating dysfunction throughout the faction.
