What happened last week on SmackDown’s opening segment
Roman Reigns opened the broadcast of Friday Night SmackDown to address Brock Lesnar ahead of his match at WWE SummerSlam 2022 for the Undisputed Universal Championship.
The Head of the Table made an appearance as usual with The Usos and Paul Heyman. Reigns wondered why Heyman was so worried. He calms him down by claiming that The Tribal Chief was there, and that he shouldn’t be so nervous. He handed her the microphone so she could explain his attitude.

Heyman assured that he loves the Usos and Reigns, but that he had a big problem: Brock Lesnar. Paul explained that he is aware that Reigns is the greatest of all time and that he has the numbers to be the greatest, but that Lesnar didn’t care about any of that. Heyman talked about Brock’s achievements, something that bothered the champion a lot.
The advisor assured Roman that he would have to give the best fight of all time, since Lesnar is capable of doing anything given even 10 seconds. He finished his speech and knelt before Reigns.
Theory made an appearance for him, with the briefcase held high, but instead of entering the ring with the champion, he just circled the ring and ran back to the ramp.
