WWE SmackDown Results (5/19) – We are live from the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina, as Roman Reigns, Solo Sikoa and Paul Heyman make their way to the ring.
We see what happened last week on Smackdown and the announcers wonder if that is why The Usos are not with Roman, Solo, and Paul.
Roman is handed the mic, like Jim Brown would have been handed the ball on the field of Municipal Stadium. Roman says that isn’t how we start things here. Roman asks Columbia to ACKNOWLEDGE HIM.
Before Roman can say anything else, he is interrupted by Kevin Owens’ music, which transitions beautifully into Sami Zayn’s music and the WWE Men’s Tag Team Champions make their way to the ring.
Roman says this is perfect. They seem excited and this was his plan all along, to bring them out here. There are two things to do and let’s get that done now. Columbia acknowledged him and then you can do it and then leave the tag titles and see your way out.
Kevin tosses the mic away and tosses the title belt down because he wants to fight, so Roman puts Solo in position.
Roman says it figures. Fight Owens Fight. You aren’t here to talk. They don’t want to talk to him. Roman starts to address Sami. Roman says he has had a special career. He experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Roman says he had one regret and that was wasting his life on Sami.
Sami says that is funny and he says he has one regret and that is not blasting you sooner with the chair. We haven’t been in the ring together since Montreal. I didn’t think I would have this chance and now your greed has led us to this moment. Sami says he has nothing to say to Roman, except . . . your whole life everyone told you were the best and you got everything you wanted. Now you want the tag titles. Sami says Roman is not going to get the tag titles. Sami says he is going to tell Roman why. You are not as good as us. For that matter, you aren’t as good as the Usos either.
Roman has an increduluous look on his face and he asks Sami how that is how he feels. Roman says he took it easy on Sami. He gave him opportunity after opportunity…
Jey Uso attacks Sami while Kevin goes after Jimmy on the floor. Jimmy and Jey with a double super kick to Sami.
Jimmy and Jey get in the ring and Roman refuses to shake hands with Jimmy. Roman tells him that wasn’t his plan. Roman bumps into Solo and then leaves the ring. Solo appears not to be happy…
We go to commercial.
We are back and Roman is in his room and Jey is trying to explain what they did. Roman yells at Jey for talking about things they do. Roman says he had something he wanted to say. Roman says he gave a good part of his career and life to that fool and now he can’t say it. Because you had to do what you had to do. Roman says is the one who keeps them on top and he makes the choices. Roman tells Jimmy and Jey to get out.
