WWE’s New Year’s Revolution SmackDown was an action-packed night. The event was capped off LA Knight, AJ Styles, and Randy Orton battling in a main event match, where the winner got a Undisputed Universal Title match at the Royal Rumble event on January 27th. This was quite a match, and there was also blood.
New Year’s Revolution marked the season premiere for the blue brand. Roman Reigns and the Bloodline invaded the main event match, where they demolished LA Knight, Randy Orton, and AJ Styles. In the process, LA Knight bled.
LA Knight was actually busted open previously in the match, as AJ Styles laid in some punches on his skull. It’s not clear if he bladed, because this cut was to his forehead, but he certainly bled on camera.
WWE didn’t pull LA Knight to the side and tend to the blood as they have in the past. He stayed in the match, and it only added to the drama of the moment, as he almost won the triple threat match, only to have Roman Reigns invade the match to ruin everything.
This is not the first blood in recent memory. Becky Lynch also bled during her match against Nia Jax on RAW’s DAY 1 episode.
Roman Reigns will face face AJ Style, Randy Orton, and LA Knight in a fatal four-way match at the Royal Rumble. Only time will tell how they book that match for Tropicana Field, but there could always be blood at a big event like the Royal Rumble.
