SmackDown begins with Kayla Braxton in the ring welcoming the crowd to the show. Braxton says that rumors are spreading about Brock Lesnar’s suspension. Before she can say more Universal Champion Roman Reigns comes out to the ring accompanied by Paul Heyman.

Heyman tells Braxton to report on facts next time she’s out there with the tribal chief. Heyman tells Braxton to leave the ring and Braxton does with an angry look on her face.

Reigns says that rumors give losers false hope, and compared to him everyone is a loser around here, because he has beaten them all. Reigns says that Lesnar is the number one loser and that he doesn’t care about rumors because these are the facts. Reigns calls Big E a loser after he defeated him at Survivor Series. Reigns says management is getting desperate in creating the battle royal tonight. Reigns says that he’s the best of the best and that he’s “your tribal chief”.
