This week’s episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown (throwback edition) kicked off with Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, and Jey Uso giving a moment of silence for Daniel Bryan, who was “banished” from SmackDown. He is also no longer under WWE contract.
Reigns then said that Daniel Bryan could still be around on SmackDown if he only acknowledged Reigns. After that, Reigns then introduced Jimmy Uso as the newest member of his stable. WrestlingNews.co first reported last fall that Jimmy Uso would join his brother and Roman when Jimmy got cleared from his knee injury. Cesaro walked out to clap back and then Seth Rollins attacked Cesaro from behind.
Teddy Long walked out (since this is a throwback show) and he said that if Cesaro can beat Seth Rollins tonight, then he will get his match against Reigns at WrestleMania Backlash.
