WWE SmackDown begins this week’s broadcast by showing highlights from last week’s episode featuring Randy Orton vs Jimmy Uso, as well as AJ Styles returning home.

At this moment, AJ Styles appears in the arena to the delight of his opponents and fans alike. AJ asserts that Randy Orton wants Roman Reigns at Royal Rumble while LA Knight wants him anytime, anyplace and anywhere, yet neither man is to blame; in his eyes, neither matters; all that matters for AJ is his goal is getting Roman Reigns himself! In conclusion, AJ announces himself as “number one when it comes to getting their hands on Roman Reigns – specifically at Royal Rumble 2018.

LA Knight’s music plays, and out comes the former WWE Star to meet with fans who chant his name; LA Knight informs them, with everyone else responding as expected by saying Roman Reigns will get him first and his music playing to discuss this topic further. Fans chanted “LA Knight”, while LA Knight said, “Let me talk to ya”. LA Knight wasn’t out here to argue who gets Roman Reigns first because there’s nothing left for debate after what transpired at Crown Jewel; instead, following what transpired there and observing what happened, there’s nothing for anyone involved to argue about; it all boils down to Roman Reigns will get him first with fans cheers echoing back as everyone said: “LA Knight, yeah”. Fans then began chanting: LA Knight “LA Knight, yes”.

He continues his attack and claims AJ Styles will get to him first because LA Knight forgot they stepped over his body to secure Roman’s match at Crown Jewel. LA Knight will learn if anyone gets in his way again, they too will get dropped – telling LA Knight if anyone gets in his path, they too will get dropped as punishment for doing so.

As soon as Randy Orton’s music hit and out comes Orton he addressed both Roman Reigns and The Bloodline as well as their issues, emphasizing how Roman had to go off-tour for 18 months, missing both home life as well as competing and telling both of them not to get in his way. He pledged his undivided attention towards Roman, adding nothing will get in his way in future matches.

LA Knight informs them that while the Bloodline had taken down AJ and Orton, no one managed to strike against him, and thus, they can join his journey, though, in return, he will get Roman Reigns as their passenger.

Nick Aldis intervenes and suggests that each one has an equally valid claim to face Roman Reigns next. According to Nick, each will get the opportunity they deserve to do just that.

Aldis reports that in two weeks is SmackDown: New Year’s Revolution, where there will be an exciting triple threat match featuring AJ Styles, LA Knight, and Randy Orton for Roman Reigns at Royal Rumble. The winner will then claim victory as Roman will become available as Roman will join this lineup at the Royal Rumble!

AJ Styles promises that they’ll all see them at New Year’s Revolution and that anyone attempting to enter his match with Solo Sikoa could face swift punishment from him as soon as they step nearer the ring during this match.

Nick Aldis enters Roman’s locker room, instructing Paul Heyman to leave. Aldis sits before Roman and asks how he knew they weren’t talking; Aldis tells Roman that even if that were the case – he wouldn’t care anyway.

Roman asks Aldis whether he booked the triple threat match against Adam Pearce and Solo against AJ Styles; Aldis says yes. Roman says these ideas are good but suggests running them by him first as being Tribal Chief would make things even better; everything must go through him, according to Roman. Adam Pearce understood this concept well enough.

Aldis informs Adam he doesn’t care much for feeling; Adam, on the other hand, is more of a middle management type who operates like an executive and serves as SmackDown’s sharp end of the stick. Solo is one big boy taking care of John Cena that not even Roman would.

He states his enthusiasm about Solo’s battle against AJ Styles is equalled only by that triple threat match. He hopes they get acquainted, leaving Roman fuming behind with Aldis as champion of the Undisputed Universal Championship. He further expresses hope they develop more vital chemistry before Aldis leaves Roman fuming behind with Roman furious.
