Smackdown opens with Bloodline arriving The Usos and Sami Zayn in one car and Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns in another.

Sheamus & Drew McIntyre VS. The Viking Raiders

After a very physical match it was Sheamus who hit the Brogue Kick on Ivar for the win.

Winners: Sheamus & Drew McIntyre

Sami Zayn goes in to talk to Roman about last week and Roman tells Sami just get out, I am not doing this every week, I don’t have to run my plans though the honorary Uce. Just get out and stop using my family and go find Kevin.

Raquel Rodriguez says she is going to win the Royal Rumble.

LA Knight VS. Ray Jones

As the match started the lights went out and Bray Wyatt’s firefly comes on the screen, LA refocuses and gets the win.

Winner: LA Knight

After the match, more mind games from Bray Wyatt showing the Firefly Funhouse being rebuilt and characters coming back to life.

Los Lotharios VS. Hit Row

After B-Fab tripped Humberto, Ashante rolled him up for the pin as Top Dolla held Garza’s ankle to prevent him from breaking up the pin attempt.

Hit Row will face Sheamus and Drew McIntyre next week.

Cody Rhodes video package shown with Cody announcing he will return at the Royal Rumble.

Charlotte Flair is out in the ring and calls out Sonya Deville. Sonya says she deserves another title match and Charlotte challenged her to a fight and Sonya said no unless you put the title on the line. Adam Pearce comes out and says this is enough and before he could continue Sonya sucker punched Charlotte and bailed out of the ring and Pearce yelled at Sonya.

Heyman tells Roman he recommends as the wise man since they are about to sign the contract to face Kevin Owens it would be better to have Sami Zayn in the castle pissing out of the castle rather than pissing in.

Ridge Holland & Butch VS. Imperium (Ludwig Kaiser & Giovanni Vinci)

After giving Butch a brain buster on the floor, Imperium hit the Imperium bomb on Ridge for the win.

Winners: Imperium

In the back Paul Heyman walks up to Sami Zayn and tells Sami the Tribal Chief would like to see him.

Shayna Baszler in the back saying she will be in the Royal Rumble and tear apart everyone limb by limb.

Killer Kross says in one week he is going to step in the ring with Rey Mysterio and usually he gets amped up for a match but not really for this match and he is going to take Rey out then go on to Royal Rumble and take everyone else out.

Legado Del Fantasma VS. Maximum Male Models

With pinning Man’soor

Winners: Legado Del Fantasma

In the back Roman and Paul welcome the arrival of Sami Zayn. Roman says he has a temper, says he put people in places like the wiseman to help him with the anger and he wasn’t hearing him and he just wanted communication and wanted to be part of the team. Roman says he expects the same love he gives out and Sami says we love you. And he will always put the bloodline first. They first bump as Sami walks out.

Adam Pearce is in the ring and the ring is set up for the contract signing. Out first is the WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman and Solo Sikoa. As Roman sits in a chair smiling, Kevin Owens sneaks in from behind and sends Solo flying with a superkick, a stunner to Roman followed. The Usos come out, Owens superkicks Jey over the barricade and sends Jimmy into the ring steps after another superkick and gets back in the ring and gives Roman a pop up powerbomb through the table. Then he goes over to Paul Heyman and signs the contract. Now Sami Zayn is out, and Owens bails out of the ring and runs through the crowd.
