Thanks for following along with us, folks! We'll see you next week for Monday Night RAW!

01:58 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Roman tries to appeal to Jey and says he needs to prove himself to their family. He sends the chair to Jey, wanting the former tag champ to use it. He turns his back on Jey, giving him the chance to hit him. 

Jey doesn't do it. Jey can't do it. Roman smiles and comes in for a hug, thinking he's finally gotten through to Jey. 

Nope. Jey rocks him with a right and superkicks him before cracking him with the chair a few times. Roman, thanks to help from the officials, knocks Jey down with a Superman punch. 

He's incredibly upset that he has to hurt his cousin again. That was Jey's last chance. At HIAC, he makes an example out of him. 

01:55 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Roman beckons Jey to the ring and gets a chair from Paul Heyman. Braun Strowman is left gasping for air, struggling to stand. 

Roman breaks the chair over Strowman's back and says that he doesn't want to do this to Jey at Hell in a Cell. They're family, and he loves him. But if he can do this to the Monster Among Men, imagine what he can do to Jey. 

01:53 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Roman sets up for another spear. Strowman makes it to his feet and almost counters with a running powerslam. Reigns escapes and locks in a guillotine. 

Strowman drives Roman spine first into the corner, but can't break the grip of the Tribal Chief. Strowman is forced to tap. 

Roman Reigns defeats Braun Strowman via submission. 

Jey Uso immediately comes out, not giving Roman a chance to celebrate. Strowman sends a message to Jey by spearing Strowman one final time. 

01:50 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Roman avoids an attack in the corner, but the Superman Punch is caught. Strowman plants Roman with the dominator. A chokeslam gives the Monster Among Men a two-count. 

Roman's kick out also allows him to hit Strowman with a low blow. 1-2-not enough! 

01:48 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Back from the commercial break, Strowman is tossing Roman around like a ragdoll. Roman kicks out of the club to the chest at two. 

01:48 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

01:46 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

01:44 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Braun manages to catch Roman coming off the steps, slamming him into the ring post and launching him over the table. The Strowman Train sends Roman over the barricade to the concrete floor.

Roman's drive-by apron dropkick connects. Braun kicks out of the pin, with Braun launching Roman up to his feet. Braun sends Roman into the turnbuckle but is shocked with a big right hand. 

Roman seems to have an answer for everything Strowman does. 

01:41 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns lock up, with Roman managing to dump Strowman to the ground. As he gets up on the apron, a Superman Punch sends him off to the floor again.

I can't believe WWE remembered the Greatest Royal Rumble. I can't believe I remember the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Next week, SmackDown will make a one night only move to FS1.

01:26 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Banks signs the contract, but Bayley doesn't. 

What uh...what happens now? If she doesn't sign it, do we not get the match? 

01:26 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Banks says she could've turned on her at any time, but she would never do that because they were best friends. Friends don't do that to each other. 

Banks is the reason Bayley showed up on the main roster years ago. She was there for Bayley when she won her first main roster belt, and more. Bayley didn't understand that, so now Banks has to take the one thing she holds dear. 

01:24 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Banks and Bayley both say that they've been waiting on this moment for a long time. Banks says that Bayley didn't get where she is with any help. It was all by herself. 

The Role Model says that Banks has been waiting to turn on her for such a long time, and Banks is just mad she didn't do it first.

01:16 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

01:16 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

The SmackDown Tag Team Championship match doesn't last long. Dawkins nearly gets pinned early, but Montez breaks it up. Roode and Ziggler brawl with Montez until the bell rings. 

No Contest 

Dawkins is planted with a spinebuster/Zig-Zag combo, but Montez responds with a high angle crossbody, laying out both contenders. 

01:12 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Rollins asks Bryan to join him in his fight with the Mysterios. Bryan, obviously, declines. 

Murphy then rushes the ring, but instead attacks Rollins, rocking him with a flash knee strike. Rey and Dominik Mysterio aren't sure what to do or say regarding Murphy. 

The former Cruiserweight Champion offers his hand to them, but they decline.  

01:05 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Bryan says he's all for positive change, but Seth Rollins' crusade seems a bit dumb to him. Rollins gives him a chance to take it back, but that's a no-go. 

Rollins attacks Bryan, but the leader of the Yes Movement responds with a flying clothesline and a series of Yes Kicks. Rollins hastily retreats to the ramp, only to be met by Rey and Dominik Mysterio. 

01:03 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

01:03 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Rollins says that he'll be the one leading SmackDown into a new age, then asks if Daniel Bryan is going to join him on the quest of the greater good. 

01:01 (GMT)17 OCT 2020

Daniel Bryan loves being inside the ThunderDome. While he enjoys his time at home, he's happy to be here. He points to Brie Bella and Birdie on one of the screens, waving to them. 

Bryan is excited about the newest Superstars that have joined SmackDown. Bianca Belair, The Riott Squad, Kevin Owens, Aleister Black, Apollo Crews and more have Bryan ready to get back in the ring. 

He's interrupted by the Friday Night Messiah Seth Rollins.
