The post-Royal Rumble edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown opens up with a look back at how Sami Zayn turned on Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble. Kayla Braxton is now outside of the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina, waiting on The Bloodline. A SUV pulls up and out comes The Bloodline – Reigns, Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa, and Paul Heyman. 

Braxton asks Roman Reigns about the status of Jey Uso but Roman Reigns and the others just keep walking. Paul Heyman stops at Braxton and says that was such a cold-blooded question from such a warm-hearted lady, but at this time they cannot confirm or deny the status of Jey in The Bloodline. Heyman thanks Braxton for wearing their colors tonight, red and black. He then follows the others into the arena.
We’re now live from inside the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville as the pyro goes off. Michael Cole welcomes us and he’s joined at ringside by Wade Barrett, no sign of Pat McAfee yet. They say Roman Reigns will give a State of The Bloodline Address tonight.

Reigns says not only does Jey walk out but he doesn’t care enough to communicate. He says it’s one thing to walk out but to not hear from Jey for an entire week?

No. Jimmy says Jey will be there, Reigns needs to chill out. Reigns says Jey may be there for Jimmy, but what about all of us, what about the entire Bloodline? Reigns asks Solo Sikoa if he’s talked to his brother. Solo just stares head. Jimmy says if he hasn’t talked to Jey, no one has. 
Roman Reigns says he doesn’t think everyone understands the urgency that is needed here. Roman Reigns asks Wise Man if this is not WrestleMania Season? Yes it is, my Tribal Chief.

Reigns just doesn’t understand, of all the times for this to happen, it happened when they were doing so good, no problems, no hiccups. Reigns asks if they know how much he has on his plate, if they understand the stress and burden of his position. Jimmy nods. Reigns feels like he’s being pulled in two different directions, like he’s being spread too thin right now. 
Roman Reigns says he loves them and he apologizes for speaking the way he did earlier. Jimmy says don’t worry about it. Reigns says he needs them and he needs us to be as strong as we’ve ever been because if we’re not, there’s no more of this – Reigns holds up his 1.

Reigns then marches to the ring and raises his finger in the air. Before Roman Reigns can speak a “Sami!” chant starts for Sami Zayn. Reigns calls on Greenville to acknowledge him and it sounds like most cheer. Fans chant “Sami!” again and Heyman looks a bit concerned. Reigns was going to ask who they want hm to talk about but it’s pretty obvious. Reigns says he would rather talk about Cody Rhodes, the guy who won the Royal Rumble, the #1 contender, someone who actually deserves his attention. 
Roman Reigns says but you simple folks have reduced me to talking about the past. A “Sami!” chant starts back up. Reigns says fine, he will talk about Sami but remember there are two sides to every story and we’re going to hear his. Reigns goes back to WarGames, when he looked Sami in the eye and told everyone he saw everything he needed to see. He says he saw greed, the same thing he sees with every person he interacts with these days. 
Roman Reigns goes on about how if a restaurant is lucky to have him these days, the entire staff says says they want this or that, not what can we do for you. Roman Reigns says he did the same for Sami Zayn, he gave him the opportunity of a lifetime but Sami just used him, used his Bloodline, and used his Island of Relevancy, no different than you fans because all you do is want, you can never give back.
A man in all black and a hoodie suddenly drops Reigns from behind. The man stands up and takes the hoodie off, it’s Zayn. Fans go wild.

Sami swings the chair but Reigns quickly rolls out of the ring. A shocked Reigns looks on from the ramp as Heyman joins him. 
Sami screams Reigns’ name and says he was wrong, Sami never wanted anything from Roman Reigns until now. Sami wants something from Reigns now and he’s going to take it because he’s coming for Reigns and the Undisputed WWE Universal Title. Fans pop big. Sami turns around to Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso leveling him with a superkick. Solo Sikoa joins in and they beat Sami down. Sikoa with a Samoan Spike. Reigns slowly makes his way back to the ring. Sikoa beats Sami down in the corner. Jimmy wraps a chair around Sami’s neck in the corner now. Solo charges for the Umaga splash into the chair but Reigns stops him.
Roman Reigns looks down at Sami and asks him if he wants something. A “we want Jey!” chant starts up now. Reigns asks Sami if he hears that. Reigns says he doesn’t have Jey because Sami broke up his Bloodline, his right hand man isn’t here because of Sami. Reigns goes on in Sami’s face about how he broke his family up. Reigns is going to give Sami what he wants, but he wants Sami at WWE Elimination Chamber in Montreal. Reigns says Sami broke up his family so he wants to destroy Sami in Montreal, in front of all his family, his friends, his child and everyone else close to him.
