Kane kicked off SmackDown live and started talking about Royal Rumble and how much it means to him. Bray Wyatt interrupted him and showed us that Ramblin' Rabbit was recovering, before showing up in the ring as The Fiend. Kane asked what took him so long before Daniel Bryan attacked The Fiend, as it turned out that Kane and Bryan were working together.

The Fiend escaped but Bryan stole some of his dreadlocks. Backstage, Bryan challenged him to a Strap match at Royale Rumble so Wyatt couldn't run away.

Segment rating: A


John Morrison vs. Big E

After being gone for nearly a decade, Morrison was introduced as the Prince of Parkour. Morrison had the upper hand early on as he hit a huge kick and sent Big E outside.

The Usos vs. The Revival

A great return match from the Usos

The Usos were well in control as the match started, with Scott Dawson in all sorts of trouble. Jey Uso got the tag and things changed up again. Jimmy Uso hit a Samoan Drop and then a crossbody for a near-fall. 

The Usos hit the tandem Superkicks and took down Dawson with a suicide dive on the outside before hitting the splash in the ring for the win.
