Roman Reigns Returns To Action After WWE Smackdown Went Off The Air
Roman Reigns fans must have been disheartened for not seeing him on SmackDown, this week. But the fans in attendance had the pleasure to witness the franchise player in action once the main show went off the air. He was there on the show for a dark match segment giving a pleasant surprise to the local Arizona fans.
As reported by wrestlingINC.com, the dark main event after this week’s WWE 205 Live in Glendale, Arizona had Roman Reigns on the card. He defeated King Baron Corbin in singles action. Whereas Reigns was kept out of the TV, Corbin did appear for a backstage segment to hype up their upcoming matchup on February 27th.

These two will be locked inside a Steel Cage at the WWE Super ShowDown 2020 pay-per-view event next Thursday. Corbin said this match will finally end their feud that is ongoing for the past several months. At this point, Roman Reigns is still favorite to pick up the win against the Lone Wolf of the WWE since he will be gearing up for a marquee match at WrestleMania 36, moving forward.

There was another non-televised match on this week’s SmackDown for the local audience, as reported by the source. This one took place before the main show kicked off from the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona featuring Apollo Crews and Gran Metalik in singles action. Crews picked up the win and also reportedly worked as a heel in the match. Later on the taped show, he also confronted Shorty G talking as a heel persona.
One of the most loaded editions of SmackDown was presented last night which also served as the go-home edition for WWE Super ShowDown 2020. A huge tag team match opened the show whereas the final match of the night determined the new number, one contender, for SmackDown Women’s Championship. Via this contest, we will now receive a historic first-ever Women’s Championship match in Saudi Arabia during WWE Super ShowDown.
