Smackdown TV report for 12/15/2023

Arena: Resch Center
City: Green Bay, WI

Smackdown opens tonight with the return of the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns along with Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa and the Wiseman Paul Heyman. They stop after the entrance to pose and for fireworks prior to being announced and then they proceed to the ring.

Roman begins telling the crowd to be quiet and then says it’s the holiday season and he is there to celebrate and its promotion season and then goes on to name Solo Sikoa as the next Tribal Chief for sacrificing everything he has and doing a good job.

Randy Orton then interrupts. Randy says he thought for 18 months about what he was going to say to him, and he told Roman he is coming after him and he is challenging him for the championship at the Royal Rumble. Roman tells him he hasn’t even thought about him for 18 months and he hasn’t done anything to earn a title match and go back to the end of the line. Roman then says he is above him and everyone else. Roman tells Randy he will never come back if he challenges him.

Randy then tells him he has changed, and he is now a legend. Then he says he has changed too but one thing he will always be is a legend killer then attempts to RKO Roman and Roman falls and avoids it. Randy tells him maybe he better start thinking about him and the voices in his head say Roman may have just crapped his pants and he will leave you with this “Daddy’s Back”.
