• What Happened In The Opening Segment Of Tonight’s SmackDown?
Tonight’s SmackDown kicked off with Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns coming out with The Bloodline to a huge pop.
As Roman is posing with his Titles in the ring, Mr. Money In The Bank Theory comes out on the entrance ramp. We then go to commercial. When we return, Theory is gone.
Roman tells Texas to acknowledge him. He said there are some “Roman sucks” chants going on, there are some “Roman” chants going on – in the end business picks up when The Tribal Chief arrives on his show SmackDown!
Reigns asks Paul Heyman why he looks so concerned. Heyman says we have a problem – Brock Lesnar. However, he says Roman is The G.O.A.T. who has been the champion for almost 700 days and holds both the Heavyweight Titles.
Heyman reminds how Lesnar wasn’t supposed to be anything, but he ended up becoming the youngest WWE Champion and The Conqueror of The Undertaker’s 21-0 undefeated WrestleMania Streak.
Paul then hyped up Reigns and said The Head Of The Table will perform at the highest level at SummerSlam and defeat The Beast again.
After this, Theory came out with the Money In The Bank contract, ran around the ring, laughed and left.
