We are live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, where The Usos are already in the ring. They say they are here for reason only – to acknowledge the longest-reigning WWE Universal Champion, who has been champion for 508 days. They say there have been a few big names to hold the Universal Title but not that long – not Kevin Owens, not Seth Rollins, not current WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, but there is one – the Head of The Table, the Tribal Chief. They go on with the grand introduction for their cousin, Roman Reigns. The music hits and out comes Reigns to a loud reaction.
Roman tells Nashville to acknowledge him. Jimmy says it is time to witness the highlights of the most dominate Universal Champion.
We have a video package.
After the video, Seth Rollins interrupts with his entrance before Reigns can speak again.
Seth asks what kind of party would it be without Seth Rollins? He says it was a hell of a package. He congratulates Roman on being the longest reigning Universal Champion. Seth says we should celebrate the title coming to him shortly. He says that Roman should be congratulated for making him a changed man. Seth says Roman took everything he said last week literally. You sent you cousins to Raw to send a message to him. Seth says if you had a message for him, you can text him.
Seth says they should be celebrating the longest reigning tag team in Smackdown history. Seth says they are the foundation for the family. Just like him and Mox (yep, he didn’t say Dean Ambrose but Mox) in the Shield.
Roman asks Seth if John Cena wrote that promo for him. Roman says their match at the Royal Rumble will be one on one. You have his word. Seth asks Roman if he is going to say Believe that. One time, your word was good as gold. Why not put your money where your mouth is. I find a partner and we face the Usos and if he wins, the Usos are barred from ringside at the Rumble.
Roman thinks about it and Jey accepts the challenge. Jey says that there is no one crazy enough to team with him. Seth says that Jey has a point and not too many people like him.
Kevin Owens’ music plays and he comes out.and hugs his tag team partner. Kevin says that he likes Seth.
Roman tells them to cut his stupid music. Roman says it ain’t final until the Tribal Chief says so. If you are a betting man, let’s raise the stakes. When you lose tonight, you lose your match at the Royal Rumble and I am going on vacation until WrestleMania.
Seth says that Roman is on and then he laughs.
We go to commercial.
