A wild night on SmackDown

SmackDown kicked off after a tribute to the late Pat Patterson and Roman Reigns, Jey Uso & Paul Heyman were out first for an in-ring interview. Reigns and Uso were set to face Otis and Kevin Owens in a tag match later tonight after KO called Roman out last week.

Kayla Braxton was conducting the interview and Reigns called her an amateur whose biggest moment was this interview after she asked him if he was scared of Owens. She then asked if Roman was manipulating Uso and Reigns denied, throwing shade at Kayla again and told Heyman to 'handle it'.

Heyman stepped in and started spouting FOX's ratings for SmackDown since Reigns' return before Kevin Owens interrupted them. Owens challenged Roman to a title match at TLC or even right then. Reigns accepted but then walked out of the ring, saying that he wasn't a savage and would wait till the right time.

Owens called out to Reigns as he was walking away and called him a 'b*tch', not a gentleman'.

Backstage, Uso was furious and apologized for stepping out of line before. Roman said that he still loved him but also that his actions would have consequences.
