WWE Universal Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns went face-to-face with Edge at the end of WWE Smackdown on FOX, but there was an unexpected distraction to the events unfolding. According to WWE.com:
Returning from injury, Edge started this year’s Royal Rumble Match at No. 1 and outlasted 29 other Superstars to earn the right to to challenge the World Champion of his choosing at The Showcase of the Immortals. In the wake of his Herculean effort, The Rated-R Superstar traveled first to Raw to inform WWE Champion Drew McIntyre that whomever he decided to face, he would be walking out of The Show of Shows with the World Title. He then ventured to NXT and put both NXT Champion Finn Bálor and Pete Dunne on notice as well.
Tonight, The Ultimate Opportunist journeyed back to SmackDown for the first time in several years. As he discussed his decision on which World Champion to face at The Show of Shows, Universal Champion Roman Reigns interrupted Edge in order to be on hand and demanded that Edge acknowledge him with respect. But before Edge could answer one way or the other, Kevin Owens suddenly emerged from out of nowhere and unleashed a wicked stunner on Reigns as SmackDown went off the air.
