Sheamus says WWE came to his hometown and Sheamus went to try to get advice from WWE talent. Sheamus says everyone else there ignored him, except for Edge who gave Sheamus the best advice he’s ever heard and bought him a pint of Guinness.

Edge smiles and asks Sheamus for a match next week, Sheamus asks the crowd what they think as the “yes” chants roar, Sheamus accepts and the two shake hands before Sheamus pulls Edge close and tells Edge he hope he didn’t make a mistake.

SmackDown returns with Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns making his way out to the ring along with Paul Heyman and Solo Sikoa. Reigns gets the Calgary crowd to acknowledge him before Reigns asks Heyman where Jimmy Uso is. Heyman says he does not know, Heyman tells Reigns he spoke with Jimmy earlier today when Jimmy walks in out from the crowd to loud boos from the fans in attendance.

Jimmy slowly enters the ring as the crowd informs him that he sold out. Reigns tells Jimmy the crowd means nothing. Reigns says that he owes Jimmy one and Reigns tells Jimmy to name his price. Jimmy says he doesn’t want anything from Reigns, and what he did at SummerSlam has nothing to do with Reigns. Reigns says he can make anything happen, he can make Jimmy the new right hand man, the Uso’s music hits to a huge pop from the crowd and Jey Uso makes his way down the ramp.

Jey enters the ring and gets right in Jimmy’s face as he takes the mic out of his brother’s hand. Jey says he’ about to throw 37 years down the drain if Jimmy doesn’t tell him right know why he did it. Jimmy says he did what he did because he loves him. Jimmy said that he was afraid to lose Jey, Jimmy says if Jey became Tribal Chief he would’ve inherited the power that would have corrupted him like it did to Reigns. Jimmy says he couldn’t live with himself if Jey became like Roman Reigns. Jimmy says if Jey wants to kick him in the face he understands but what he did he did out of love for Jey. Jey turns his back to Jimmy and Jimmy leaves the ring with disappointment and frustration on his face. Reigns laughs and says that Jey messed everything up like he said he would. Reigns says tonight is about him and he demands Jey acknowledge him. Jey super kicks Reigns in the face which causes Sikoa to go after Jey.

Jey Uso ducks under a super kick but is hit with a Superman punch from Reigns. Reigns goes for a spear but Jey hits a super kick and then hits a spear of his own. Jey then picks up a mic and screams for Jimmy Uso to come back to the ring. Jey holds out his arms and Jimmy runs in for a hug only to be hit with the face with a super kick from Jey. Jey looks right in the camera and says he’s out of the Bloodlone, he’s out of SmackDown and he’ out of WWE. Jey Uso leaves through the crowd holding the peace sign up in the air as SmackDown comes to an end.

That’s it for this week’s SmackDown. Let us know what you thought and we’ll see you back here next Friday for more SmackDown coverage. Until then, stay safe!
