In-Ring: Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Jey Uso, Kevin Owens
Kayla Braxton is in the ring as she welcomes everyone to SmackDown. She introduces the WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns to the ring naming his achievements in the WWE. Roman makes his way down to the ring with Paul Heyman and Jey Uso.
Roman tells Kayla that she forgot an accolade as Heyman jumps in and concludes the introduction. Kayla says that Roman has become a commanding figure in the WWE ThunderDome and what happened last week. We see a clip of last week’s show with Jey going up against Kevin Owens.
She asks Roman if he fears Kevin. Roman laughs and tells her this is probably the most viewed thing she has ever been a part of and she asks him stupid questions. They have someone like Michael Cole who could have asked him questions but instead they waste it on her. Next questions.
Kayla asks if he is using Jey as a pawn and manipulating him. Roman says those are stupid words for stupid people. Does he look like someone who manipulates? He is a protector, a provider. Jey, one half of the greatest tag team of his generation, but what has he done in the past few months? Has she done any research? They give her a huge opportunity. And she wastes it in her first two questions.
Heyman cuts in and says that according to his friends at Fox, the ratings have been as high as they have ever been the entire year because of Jey Uso being in the main event. Roman is a motivator.
Kevin’s music hits and out comes Kevin Owens. He says last week he made it clear that he doesn’t fear him and why wait until later tonight. They can settle this right now. Kevin gets in the ring. Jey tells him they run this show, they accept, easy. Kevin tells Jey he wasn’t talking to the buss boy, he was talking to the head of the table. He asks Roman if not now, TLC. He is the head of the table, let’s get a table in there, a ladder, chairs. Put the title on the line and they could settle it like men. Or they fight now.
Roman laughs. He says they don’t back down or fear anyone. They accept and he’s lucky because if he was the man he used to be, he would beat him up. But there’s a time and a place for everything. He’s a gentleman, there’s a lady in the ring. He throws the microphone and leaves the ring.
Kevin tells Roman that he’s not a gentleman, he’s a bitch.
Backstage: Jey Uso, Roman Reigns

— WWE (@WWE) December 5, 2020

They have been training together since the Performance Center. Sasha says Carmella is the first woman to ever win the Money in the Bank.

On a whim, walks into the PC and she becomes a star. With half the work, she is better than her. She has held onto the SmackDown Women’s Title longer than all of Sasha’s reigns combined.
