Roman Reigns decided to give the Leader Of The Yes Movement yet another shot at the title. However, Reigns raised the stakes of the match by adding an interesting condition.
The Tribal Chief said if Bryan loses, he will no longer be allowed to perform on SmackDown and will be banished from Friday Nights.
As Michael Cole suggested towards the end of this week's show, this could be one of the biggest main events in SmackDown's history. It will be interesting to see just how the match unfolds considering what is at risk for both men.
This will be Daniel Bryan's fourth Universal Championship match this year. He previously faced Reigns at Elimination Chamber, Fastlane, and WrestleMania 37, but his efforts were thwarted by The Tribal Chief.
The circumstances are different this time around, so we can expect Bryan to bring his A-game.
