It should be interesting to see how things play out on tonight’s show.
SmackDown kicks off with Paul Heyman in the ring holding both of Reigns’ championship belts. Heyman says that ever since he and Brock Lesnar conquered Undertaker’s streak at WrestleMania, he doesn’t offer predictions, he gives spoilers. Heyman says the Island of Relevancy is under two prongs of attack; Sami Zayn, who is not here this evening, and also from Cody Rhodes on RAW. Heyman calls the two title belts he’s holding the plasma in the blood flowing through the entire Bloodline, Heyman says without the titles, there is no Island of Relevancy, no Bloodline, no Paul Heyman and no Roman Reigns.
Heyman is interrupted by Sami Zayn who slides in the ring behind Heyman’s back. Zayn takes the mic from Heyman. Zayn says that if this were a month ago, Solo Sikoa or The Usos would’ve ran to the ring and taken Zayn out already, but right now, Heyman is out there all alone. Zayn says that Heyman knows that Reigns’ days as champion are numbered. Zayn says that him leaving and Jey Uso walking out of the Bloodline is causing everything to crumble around them. Zayn says that Jimmy will side with his twin brother over his abusive cousin. Zayn says the Bloodline is on it’s way out, as everyone knows it. Zayn gives a spoiler to Heyman, Reigns has eight days left as champion. Zayn grabs Heyman close and tells Heyman to tell Reigns he doesn’t have to worry about Cody, because Sami Zayn will be the one to take Reigns down.
