So without further ado, let us take a look at the 5 biggest rumors and stories affecting SmackDown:
#5 SmackDown Superstar Roman Reigns to make an announcement
Roman Reigns continues to dominate SmackDown as the Universal Champion and Tribal Chief of the blue brand. Reigns have been feuding with his cousin Jey Uso over the past few weeks.
Last week on SmackDown, Jey Uso attacked The Big Dog with a steel chair only to get beaten by his elder cousin once again. The two men will be facing each other at Hell in a Cell and WWE.com have revealed that Roman Reigns will be making a major announcement this SmackDown.
The long-standing family rivalry between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Jey Uso was only intensified when Uso refused to acknowledge his cousin as The Tribal Chief. And now, following a vicious altercation between them last week on the season premiere of SmackDown, The Big Dog will reveal the consequences for what he’s promised will be the highest stakes in WWE history.
It will be interesting to see what The Big Dog will have in store for Jey Uso on SmackDown. It has already been announced that the two cousins will face each other in the first-ever I Quit match to take place inside Hell in a Cell.
