In-Ring: Roman Reigns, The Usos, King Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode
WWE SmackDown kicks off with Roman Reigns walking down to the ring. Out come The Usos and all three men are in the ring. Roman hypes up the crowd. He says the Rumble past, the good news is he whooped Corbin’s ass all over the baseball stadium. The bad news is that he lost. But they will bounce back with the help of the Usos and focus on WrestleMania.
Out comes Corbin with Ziggler and Roode. Corbin says Roman knows for a fact that without the help of the Usos, he would not have won on Sunday. Corbin says Roman cheated his way to victory and if the three of them would not have attacked him, he would have been in better shape for the Royal Rumble match. And he would have been the one pointing at the WrestleMania sign and taking his place in the main event of WrestleMania.
Corbin says that’s not happening and tonight, he demanded a six man tag match. And the three of them will pay for what they did. The Usos ask why he is mad? They say he must be confused because the last time they checked, there was a super kick to Dolph, Roode, Superman punch to Dolph, Roode, spear to Dolph, Roode. But Corbin got Superman punched, super kicked and speared. They say he is a king in the wrong game. He is playing checkers while they are playing chess.
Baron says a lot of them had time for board games after they sat at home for embarrassing their family. Corbin mentions how they embarrassed Roman Reigns as we see a clip of SmackDown from weeks ago where they threw dog food onto Reigns. Roman says the funny thing is that he is still living in the past as if that’s the best moment of his career. Either that or he has a sick dog fetish. Roman says they’ll add a stipulation. The loser of the six man main event eats dog food.
Corbin accepts the challenge as Dolph and Roode don’t look too sure about it. The Usos say they have a surprise and to bring it out. A WWE staff member brings out an entire cart full of dog food.
