It should be interesting to see how things play out on tonight’s show.

SmackDown kicks off with Triple H in the ring, Triple H welcomes everyone to the season premier of SmackDown, immediately after this Triple H is cut off by Roman Reigns’ music and out comes the entire Bloodline. After their entrance, Reigns gets the crowd to acknowledge him before Logan Paul makes his way out to the ring to interrupt the Bloodline’s 20-minute opening promo, in front of Triple H no less.

Reigns begins to laugh as Paul approaches the ring. Reigns says this is his show and Paul is his guest, and he invites Paul into the ring and Paul enters the ring as we hear very loud “Logan sucks” chants from the crowd. Reigns says there are a lot of things they can teach Paul. Heyman calls Paul this generations version of Mr. T and Cyndi Lauper, the outside star that they bring in to get more viewers so that more and more people will get the chance to acknowledge Roman Reigns. Heyman calls Paul pseudo-celebrity male Kardashian who will be laying on a hospital bed making internet content about the time he got smashed by Roman Reigns.

Logan Paul calls out Jey Uso which causes Jey to need to be held back by Jimmy as the crowd is entirely in favor of the Bloodline here as they loudly cheer for their favorite Uce, Sami Zayn, who gets on the mic to tell everyone to calm down for a second. Zayn says to Reigns that Jey Uso did nothing wrong, Zayn calls out Logan Paul, Zayn tells Paul that after Reigns smashes Paul at Crown Jewel, The Bloodline will still be there after Paul is defeated and gone.
