Tonight’s SmackDown does not currently have any confirmed matches, but it has been teased that the episode will feature the Bloodline trying to remain in control of SmackDown after the new era following Universal Champion Roman Reigns being absent from last week’s SmackDown.

Heyman answers that the New Day won as the fans begin to chant for the New Day. Reigns says the New Day is entertaining, but they’re not better than the Bloodline. Reigns asks the Usos which one of them got pinned, and Reigns goes up to Jimmy Uso and Reigns asks Jimmy how he’s going to fix this problem. Jimmy says he’s going to make Woods acknowledge who the real king is.
The New Day come out to interrupt the Bloodline. Kingston formally introduces King Woods. Woods and Kingston mock Reigns being “the head of the table”.
