After Uso had spent most of the night assaulting various SmackDown superstars, Owens took to the ring to face off against Uso.
The match ended in a chaotic brawl and then devolving into a brutal message from Owens to Roman Reigns to end the night.
In a surprisingly brutal match between two superstars who clearly weren’t fond of each other, it was Owens who won, although it came after a brutal chair shot from Uso late in the match to cause the referee to ring the bell for a disqualification. Following the end of the match, Uso continued to attack Owens with the chair, with Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman watching from a monitor backstage.
After attacking Owens for a bit more, Jey Uso eventually got hit with a Stunner to drop him for a moment. Owens then picked up a chair and began his own assault of Uso, viciously hitting him in the back over and over again as he turned to the camera and told Reigns that he wasn’t afraid of anything, including him. The segment ended with Owens once again hitting a Stunner on Uso, then taking a seat at the head of the commentary desk and telling Reigns that if Roman has a problem with him then he can say it to his face.
The show ended with Reigns looking down and Heyman looking on as they faded to black. It is clear now that Kevin Owens will be next in line to challenge for the Universal Championship at the TLC pay-per-view.
