Jimmy Uso is set to make his return to WWE SmackDown this week. Initially, WWE announced him to make his comeback on last week’s episode of SmackDown. However, Bray Wyatt’s shocking death forced the company to change their plans at the last moment, leading to Uso’s return being scrapped from the show.
The Bloodline Saga took a whole new turn at SummerSlam, when Jimmy hid his face and returned to cost Jey Uso a chance to dethrone Roman Reigns as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. On the fallout SmackDown episode, Jimmy explained that he betrayed his twin brother because he did not want to lose another family member to power.

Jey Uso was not so pleased with the explanation given by Jimmy, and he decided to attack everyone from The Bloodline. He hit Roman Reigns, Solo Sikoa and Jimmy with superkicks before shouting at the cameras that he was done with The Bloodline, SmackDown as well as WWE.
Will Manu return to WWE as the new ally of Jimmy Uso?
Jimmy has turned heel, and it looks likely that he will have a lengthy feud with Jey Uso, when he finally returns to WWE. A showdown between the Uso brothers is on the cards. To ensure that Jey gets the maximum amount of support from the fans, the WWE creative team can bring back Manu.
In case you forgot, Manu, whose real name is Afa Anoa’i Jr. worked in WWE until 2009, where he even joined Randy Orton’s Legacy group once. Manu can work as a heel alongside Jimmy. During his time outside WWE, Manu has continued to wrestle in the independent circuits.

This storyline can help Roman Reigns take a lengthy break from WWE before he eventually returns to battle the Usos. It will be interesting to see if WWE writers think the same way as fans.
