• Clarification Regarding What Happened With Roman Reigns After SmackDown
There are some reports going on regarding WWE doing a match with no outcome after SmackDown.
Reports state that Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton was the dark main event of this week’s SmackDown (after 205 Live went off the air) and the match ended with Reigns being declared the winner (with his music getting started) without a finish.
However, that’s not the case. Orton vs. Reigns was scheduled to happen, but Orton attacked Reigns before the match could begin and the fight ended with Reigns laying out Orton with a Superman Punch and a Spear.
As seen in the main event segment of this week’s SmackDown, Reigns is now a part of the SmackDown roster.
