– Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Solo Sikoa & Paul Heyman kicked off tonight’s episode of SmackDown.
Roman told the fans to acknowledge him and they did. Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn came out next.
The Head Of The Table said the fans already did it, now it’s Kevin & Sami’s turn. Roman told them to acknowledge him, drop his new titles in the ring and leave.
Reigns said he has had a special career. He has seen the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, but he has one regret – wasting his time on Owens & Zayn.
Sami then said he also has a regret – not hitting him with a Steel Chair sooner. Sami said Roman’s greed for Titles has led to them being in the same ring again. Sami said Roman isn’t going to win the Tag Team Titles because he isn’t as good as them, and that he isn’t as good as The Usos either.
Roman said he took it easy on Sami and then The Usos attacked Kevin & Sami from behind. This angered The Tribal Chief, as he yelled at The Usos about doing things his way and he didn’t ask Jimmy & Jey Uso to do this.
Reigns turned around and accidentally bumped into Solo, and Solo didn’t like it. Roman then left the ring.
After the commercial, The Usos apologized to Roman in the locker room. Roman yelled at them and said he makes the decisions around here because he’s the one that keeps The Bloodline at the top. Roman told Jimmy & Jey to get out.

– NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn def. Valentina Feroz & Yulisa Leon
– Michael Cole announced on tonight’s SmackDown that Liv Morgan isn’t cleared to compete due to the injury she suffered last week, which means Liv & Raquel Rodriguez have been forced to vacate the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship.

In 2 weeks on RAW, the following Fatal 4-Way match will take place to crown the new champions:
Raquel Rodriguez & TBA vs. Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler vs. Damage CTRL (Bayley & IYO SKY) vs. Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville
– United States Champion Austin Theory complained about being ganged up on by Bobby Lashley & Sheamus last week. Theory said Lashley follows him on every brand because The All Mighty is jealous of him. Theory then turned his attention towards Sheamus. Theory said he has a lot of things in common with The Celtic Warrior. They both defeated John Cena, only difference is he did it this year at WrestleMania, while Sheamus did it 12-13 years ago.
Sheamus then came out, had a face-off with Theory and laid him out with a Brogue Kick.
