#5 Roman Reigns to lead heel faction on SmackDown
'The Tribal Chief' Roman Reigns has been dominating SmackDown ever since he returned at SummerSlam. Reigns won the Universal Championship at Payback by defeating Bray Wyatt and has been ruling the Blue brand ever since.
The Big Dog has been feuding with his cousin Jey Uso lately and will be facing him in an 'I Quit' Hell in a Cell match. It is being reported that a new heel faction is in the works with Roman Reigns leading The Usos as well as some other Superstars.
Here is what WrestlingNews.co have stated:
"For what it’s worth, there has been talk in creative about Reigns leading a stable with Jey and Jimmy (when he’s healthy) and others added in the future. We were told that the match at Hell in a Cell would be the next big chapter in the story being told and there are many other players that will be involved in the storyline with Reigns."
Roman Reigns has himself stated in the past that he is open to the idea of forming a heel faction which would showcase WWE's Samoan Superstars.
