Owens & Zayn def. The Usos in a WrestleMania Title Rematch
In an extremely hard-fought WrestleMania Main Event rematch pitting Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn against The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships, Solo Sikoa emerged on the ramp. Before he could make his way to the ring, however, Matt Riddle came out of nowhere and attacked The Bloodline's enforcer. Although The Original Bro neutralized Sikoa, Jimmy and Jey Uso took Sami Zayn out of action and looked as if they would reclaim the titles in Roman Reigns' name. Before they could, though, Zayn dragged Jey out of the ring and hurled him into the steel steps. This paved the way for Owens to hit a Stunner on Jimmy. A revitalized Sami then finished him off with a Heluva Kick to give the reigning titleholders the huge victory.
With the loss, the future of The Usos in The Bloodline was left completely uncertain as SmackDown went off the air.
