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 greeting us, then the music of Roman Reigns plays. The champion enters with the bloodline. In the ring, Roman Reigns asked Salt Lake City to recognize him. Paul Heyman takes the mic, introduces himself and then talks to us about Roman Reigns still being a 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 him tribal leader and it’s Roman Reigns. But now that Drew McIntyre has to deal with Karrion Kross, he will be talking about Solo Sikoa. Sent by the elders of the Samoan dynasty, he will be there to ensure Roman Reigns remains on the throne. This allows Usos to focus on their quest.
Roman Reigns takes the mic and tells Solo Sikoa to recognize him, and the wrestler agrees. The Bloodline was about to leave but Sami Zayn takes the mic and says cut the music. He knows he’s not really family, but he wants to publicly acknowledge Roman Reigns.
Roman Reigns says he likes him but wants to know why Sami Zayn is talking. He wonders why Sami Zayn is wearing her t-shirt. Reigns wants Zayn to take off his t-shirt. Jey Uso rips Sami Zayn’s shirt off.
Roman Reigns is gifting Sami Zayn a new t-shirt that reads ‘SZ Honorary Uce’. Sami Zayn is very happy and recognizes Roman Reigns before hugging him. Jey Uso is the only one not happy.
