Next is the RKO show hosted by Randy Orton and Kevin Owens. They talk about bringing out their guest Paul Heyman but never announce him and Paul came out on his own. Paul asked if he could enter the ring and Randy said yes and Kevin said if you invite him into the ring, you just can’t RKO him. Randy said he is the out of nowhere kind of guy. Paul said there will be no RKO this evening and Randy said he begged to differ. As Paul then started talking the crowd chanted “We want Roman”.

Paul said he had great respect for them both and he wanted to beg them to back out of the match tomorrow and Randy asked who the real Tribal Chief was. As Paul started to answer, Solo Sikoa and Tama Tonga attack Kevin and Randy.

Face-to-Face AJ Styles and Cody Rhodes

Cody asked the crowd what they wanted to talk about in French and AJ stopped him and said he doesn’t care what they want to talk about because he is in the ring with the phenomenal AJ Styles.

Cody started saying he started out in Georgia and watched AJ growing up and AJ stopped him and said he doesn’t need to hear that kind of crap; He might be older than Cody, but he is still in his prime. AJ then said he wasn’t welcome to WWE like Cody was he had to work for years to get here, and he is going to get back to the top to prove he is phenomenal.

Cody tells AJ he will always be phenomenal but tomorrow night might be a dream match and their first match. Cody says he is looking at AJ as his first and that’s too sweet and AJ stuck his hand up for the too sweet gesture and as Cody went to do it, AJ slapped Cody in the face.

Right after that, the camera cuts to a disturbance in the back and Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga, Randy Orton and Kevin Owens are fighting again as Smackdown goes off the air.
