Tonight’s edition of WWE SmackDown featured an in-ring segment by The Bloodline. Roman Reigns cut a promo wherein he voiced his frustrations over the loss him and Sami Zayn suffered at the hands of KO and John Cena last week on the blue brand.


Roman Reigns asked the Honorary Uce if he wanted to be The Tribal Chief because if the big promises Sami had made to Roman before their tag team match against KO and Cena. The top champion threw a fit at Sami, who backed into a corner until KO arrived to interrupt the segment.

Kevin Owens said Roman Reigns had misdirected anger because if was Owens who handed his team the loss. The Prized Fighter asked the Tribal Chief to deal with the “KO problem” by facing him for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble.
