Solo showing he’s the enforcer, that’s “ussy”. Zayn continues on stating that The Usso’s being the longest reigning tag-team champions, that’s “ussy”. Zayn then states that Riddle thinking he was coming out running his mouth thinking he ever had a chance at beating The Bloodline… that is NOT “ussy”. Zayn then warns Riddle to turn around and go home.
Riddle turns around for a moment then turns back to say he DID find a partner, and there will in fact be a tag-team championship tonight. Riddle then shares that he may not be friendly with his partner, but it’s someone that also doesn’t like The Usso’s. With that, Kevin Owen’s entrance theme sounds.
