Edge kicked off SmackDown and was about to talk about who to challenge at WrestleMania when he was interrupted by Roman Reigns.

Reigns, Uso, and Heyman walked up to the ring and Roman said that Edge's decision should be easy since Roman was the only real main-eventer.

Edge asked Roman if he really wanted to go against a veteran who could expose his weaknesses, making him an easy target for future opponents.

Sami Zayn interrupted them and walked up with his film crew to say that he was the Master Strategist before Jey Uso took him out with a Superkick. Roman whispered something in Edge's ear before leaving the ring.
