• SmackDown Results – Heel Turn, Roman Reigns Apologizes To Sami Zayn

– Tonight’s episode of SmackDown kicked off with The Bloodline. Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns declared that he didn’t lose last week, Sami Zayn did.

Roman asked Sami why he promised a win last week and failed to deliver. Roman yelled at Sami and asked him if thinks he can be him, if he wants to be The Tribal Chief and run The Bloodline?

Kevin Owens interrupted and said Roman has a KO Problem and wants a match against him at the Royal Rumble 2023 premium live event.

Reigns agreed to face him and said he wants Owens to disappear. Owens ended the segment by saying he’ll see Reigns at Royal Rumble and he’ll see Sami when he takes his balls out of Roman’s pockets.
