WWE SmackDown Salt Lake City, Utah
The commentators are Michael Cole and Corey Graves.
– Tonight is WWE SmackDown, the blue show begins with the commentators who welcome us, then the music of Roman Reigns plays. The champion enters with the Bloodline. Once in the ring, Roman Reigns asks Salt Lake City to recognize him. Paul Heyman takes the microphone, introduces himself and then tells us about Roman Reigns who is still champion.
People say it was Drew McIntyre’s moment… no. Cardiff, Wales or Scotland are not Drew McIntyre’s territory. The whole planet belongs to the tribal chief and it is Roman Reigns. But since Drew McIntyre now has to deal with Karrion Kross, then he will be talking about Solo Sikoa. He was sent by the elders of the Samoan dynasty and will be there to ensure that Roman Reigns remains on the throne. This will allow Usos to focus on finding him.
Roman Reigns takes the microphone and tells Solo Sikoa to recognize him and the fighter obeys. Bloodline was about to leave but Sami Zayn takes the microphone and says to cut the music. He knows he’s not technically family, but he wants to publicly acknowledge Roman Reigns.
Roman Reigns says he likes her but wants to know why Sami Zayn is talking. He wonders why Sami Zayn is wearing his shirt. Reigns wants Zayn to take his shirt off. Jey Uso rips off Sami Zayn’s shirt.
Roman Reigns gives Sami Zayn a new shirt with “SZ Honorary Uce”. Sami Zayn is very happy and recognizes Roman Reigns, before giving him a hug. Jey Uso is the only one who is not happy.
