WWE SmackDown Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania

The commentators are Michael Cole and Pat McAfee.

– Tonight is WWE SmackDown, the blue show starts on a video of the Main Event of WrestleMania Backlash 2022. The commentators welcome us then the RK-Bro arrive in the ring. The crowd sings for Randy Orton, who welcomes us to SmackDown! They are very very excited to be there tonight but they are also tired of chasing the Usos. It’s obvious the Usos don’t have the balls to make decisions on their own. Roman Reigns is the only decision maker in the Bloodline. Riddle says they had things under control at WM Backlash, but Roman Reigns speared him and they lost, he’s sorry. Randy Orton says they want to become undisputed tag team champions and demands that Roman Reigns step into the ring.

Sami Zayn’s music hits and he enters wearing a Bloodline t-shirt. He asks them if they know how things work on SmackDown. Do they think they can snap their fingers and bring in Roman Reigns? As locker room leader, Sami Zayn speaks for the Bloodline, the locker room and the WWE Universe: no one wants to see this unification match. RK-Bro also don’t want to see this match because they will lose! Sami Zayn asks RK-Bro to take their belts, go back to RAW and not come back.

Randy Orton suggests a match between Sami Zayn and Riddle tonight. If Riddle wins, they have the unification match. Sami Zayn leaves the ring and says it won’t happen tonight, maybe in a week or two. He needs to talk to Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns. Adam Pearce comes on stage and says we’d all like to see a match between Zayn and Riddle, so the match is official…and it’s starting now!

– Roman Reigns enters the Bloodline. The Universal/WWE champion asks Wilkes-Barre to recognize him. He says the Bloodline crushes their opponents on Sunday and arrives on Friday to say who’s next. This was the case with John Cena or Brock Lesnar. But this time it’s different. They ran over RK-Bro and Drew McIntyre and there’s no one left. the Tribal Chief is untouchable. The Usos have a challenge… The RK-Bro are entering.

Randy Orton tells Roman Reigns that John Cena is 10 times the Superstar he will never be. Riddle goes on to say that they want this tag team title unification match. Randy Orton says the Usos have one brain for two, so he’s going to say this very slowly so they understand: they…want…a…match…for…the… titles! By having these belts, they will be able to combine them so that only two belts remain and be the undisputed tag team champions. Jimmy Uso says they accept…but not tonight, next week!

Jimmy Uso says that after this match, they will both have belts! Roman Reigns raises his two belts but Riddle knees him then the RK-Bro leave the ring! The show ends like this.
