Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman came down to the ring before the main event. Reigns said that he came out first because this is his yard, his ring, and his WWE. Reigns challenged anyone to come and try to take it from him. Reigns and Jey Uso battled King Corbin and Sheamus in a Samoan Street Fight.

Opinion: The first hour of SmackDown was bad but I thought it second half of the show was good. Sasha Banks’ promo was excellent and I find the Reigns and Jey storyline compelling. Roman Reigns as a heel has been awesome so far.
