During the Friday Night SmackDown broadcasts via FOX, superstar Kevin Owens received a brutal attack from Roman Reigns and Jey Uso that shut down this week’s broadcasts.
After insisting with Commissioner Adam Pearce throughout the episode, Kevin Owens received a showdown against Jey Uso for the main event of SmackDown.
The fight did not last long, and was largely dominated by Owens who managed to finish off his opponent by applying a Stunner for the count of three. Uso found no respite, as his opponent did not stop attacking him after the bell rang.
Kevin Owens demanded the presence of Roman Reigns as he led Jey Uso to the heights of the ThunderDome. When he was about to throw it on a table, “The Big Dog” appeared out of nowhere and attacked him with a Superman Punch.
Roman and Owens hit each other using the virtual audience screens. Uso got up and reached for chairs to attack “KO” alongside Reigns. The two cousins closed this punishment by throwing him from the platform towards the tables below.
Roman Reigns would have made an important announcement tonight
Several hours prior to this episode, a very different segment had been announced involving Roman Reigns placing a request to the blue show authorities. Remember that “The Big Dog” managed to defend the Universal Championship against Kevin Owens on two consecutive occasions. The first time he came out with the victory of a TLC match in Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2020. The following Friday on SmackDown, Reigns won a Steel Cage Match that opened the special Christmas day.
