WWE 'SmackDown' Results: What is Next for Roman Reigns and Jey Uso?

It's the SmackDown after the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view and the blue brand has seen some changes coming out of the big show.

While Universal Champion Roman Reigns retained his title, Sasha Banks defeated Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship. This is the first time "The Boss" has captured this title, but what will it mean for the rest of the SmackDown women's locker room?

Will Bayley look for a rematch, or will a new player step up to Banks?

Reigns' defense against his cousin Jey Uso has led to Roman being recognized as the tribal chief. Reigns gave Jey an ultimatum before the match; if he lost he would either become an "indentured servant" under him or he and his family will be out of the family forever. How will Jey react and what is next for Roman?

Otis lost his Money in the Bank contract to The Miz at Hell in a Cell. How will the SmackDown superstar react to the loss of his golden ticket and will we see the continuation of the battle between him and former best friend Tucker?

The WWE is building up towards Survivor Series and the brand vs. brand warfare that will take place there. All of the blue brand's champions will compete against Monday Night RAW's but will Sasha Banks, Roman Reigns, Sami Zayn and The Street Profits still be champions when the November pay-per-view comes around?

Big E is going solo as Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods have been moved to Monday Night RAW. Big E has vanquished Sheamus and is now on to the next opponent, but who will that be? What will the next chapter for Big E be?

Here's everything that happened on the October 30 episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
