So if Cena/Reigns was Team Jorts vs Team Cargo Pants, what is Balor/Reigns? Questions for later, I guess.

01:58 (GMT)24 JUL 2021

Reigns denies Cena's challenge for SummerSlam and is interrupted by Finn Balor. The Prince says he's not here to acknowledge Roman. However, if he's not interested in Cena, maybe he's interested in Balor. In a shocking turn of events, Roman accepts! We're getting The Tribal Chief vs The Prince!

01:53 (GMT)24 JUL 2021

Roman Reigns demands that Cleveland, and everyone watching at home, acknowledge him. He says that John Cena has acknowledged him. He did so at Money in the Bank, RAW, and even tonight on SmackDown. He figured that Cena would try something new, but it's been a nostalgia act since he returned. The same clothes, the same entrance, the same insults.

01:42 (GMT)24 JUL 2021

Edge looks back to 2015 when Seth Rollins threatened to break his neck live on TV. He didn't pull the trigger then, and that was a mistake. Edge says he's learned from the evilest minds in this industry. He was in the Brood and the Ministry of Darkness. Rollins has no idea what Edge is capable of, but he'll find out soon enough. 

At that point, Seth Rollins emerges from the back.

01:14 (GMT)24 JUL 2021

Edge is out and the Cleveland crowd is rocking. The Rated-R Superstar nearly won the Universal Championship at Money in the Bank, but was attacked by Seth Rollins. He thanks the fans for their support, and they know just how hard he's worked to get back here.

The tank accidentally fires and hits Corbin in the crowned jewels, allowing Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode to steal his money.
