Just by watching WWE Friday Night SmackDown you can see that WWE is going forward with the Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin program.
WWE will air episodes of SmackDown at the SAP Center in San Jose on February 7th and in Vancouver on February 14th. The promotion material for both shows is out and WWE is advertising Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin in a “loser eats dog food” match.
Here is the advertisement from SAPCenter.com:
WWE Friday Night SmackDown is coming to San Jose! Double Main Event!
