WWE is loading up this Friday’s episode of SmackDown with two title matches as they’re going up against the second night of the NFL Draft.
Apollo Crews will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Big E and Daniel Bryan is putting his SmackDown career on the line in a Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns.
If Bryan loses this match then he’ll be “banished” from SmackDown and likely be heading to Monday Night Raw.
Reigns took to Twitter to send a warning to Bryan. He shared a photo of calluses on his hands as he prepares for the match. “The Big Dog” also sent out the following in the caption:
“Trained, abused and calloused. These are the hands that were built to end Daniel Bryan’s career.”

Reigns retained the Universal Title against Bryan and Edge in a three-way match at WrestleMania 37. Edge hasn’t been seen since on WWE television, which has fans speculating that Edge may cost Bryan the match this Friday.
