#5 WWE RAW Superstar Naomi to join Roman Reigns?
In a recent edition of SK Wrestling’s Writing with Russo, former WWE writer Vince Russo talked about why Naomi could be joining Roman Reigns’ faction on SmackDown. Vince Russo believes that Naomi joining Reigns is a ‘no-brainer’ given that she is the wife of Jey Uso’s brother Jimmy Uso.
“Storyline-wise, I would tie her in to that whole Roman Reigns storyline. That whole Samoan family and the roots, the relationships throughout the family. I mean, I can’t believe that they’re missing the boat on that, you know. That’s a no-brainer to me.”
The WWE Universal Champion has been ruling SmackDown with an iron fist ever since he declared himself as The Tribal Chief. Being followed by Paul Heyman and his cousin Jey Uso, Reigns has become almost untouchable on the blue brand.
It had been reported that Jey Uso’s brother Jimmy Uso will soon return to WWE and will likely join the faction as well. In such a case, his wife Naomi returning to SmackDown and becoming part of the stable can be seen as a major possibility.
