WWE Smackdown Results 8th January 2021

WWE Friday Night SmackDown: coverage and results for January 8, 2021

Big E will face Apollo Crews, while there will be a five-way match to define Roman Reigns’ next opponent.

Roman Reigns, accompanied by Paul Heyman and Jey Uso, is the first to enter the ring. He takes the mic and says he respects someone with as many ambitions as Kevin Owens.

He admits it put him on the ropes, and he had to do things he didn’t want to do. He adds that he loves the entire SmackDown roster, and that he cares about all of them.

He says that if people think he’s evil, it’s because of Adam Pearce, whom he invites into the ring. He claims that it is because of him that Owens got the green light to get hurt, and then he does not face the circumstances.

He says that from now on he will not let a useless person decide for him. He warns him that from now on, it will be the Cacique himself who will make the brand’s decisions.
