WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: TWO TITLE MATCHES TONIGHT, ONE NEXT WEEK, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2022-05-13 22:00:00

Your announcers are Michael Cole and Pat McAfee.

We begin with highlights from the main event of Backlash.

Raw Tag Team Champions, Randy Orton and Riddle, make their way to the ring.

Randy welcomes everyone to Smackdown.  He says they are very very very very excited to be here tonight.  They are also sick and tired of the chase.  It is obvious that the Usos don't have the balls to make any decisions for themselves.  It is obvious to them that Roman is the only person who makes any decisions in the Bloodline.  Riddle says he has to give Roman props.  He thought they had things under control but Roman hit him with a spear and they lost.  Riddle says he is good at seeing patterns.  Every time the Usos can't handle business, Roman comes in and handles it for them.

Randy says they are sick and tired of it.  Since the short and swett of it is that they demand to become the Undisputed Tag Team Champions, so whatever you want to call yourself Roman, bring your happy ass to the ring.

Sami Zayn's music plays and he is wearing a Bloodline shirt.  Sami asks if they understand how things work on Smackdown.  Do you think you can snap your fingers and get Roman Reigns to come out whenever you summon him.  As locker room leader, I will address this on Roman's behalf.  Sami says he speaks for the Bloodline, the locker room, and WWE Universe that no one wants to see this unification match.  More importantly, you don't want this title unification match because if it happens, you will lose.

Sami enters the ring and he says he is trying to handle this like a leader and with diplomacy.  Everyone loves RK-Bro and what he suggests is that they take their titles and go back to Raw and don't come back.  

Randy says he told Roman he wanted him to come out and he asks if Sami is Roman's errand boy.  Riddle tells Sami he will call him 'Rusty' because his hair looks like rust.

Sami corrects the crowd after chanting 'Rusty'.  Sami says this is not a threat, but they should think about they talk about Roman and the Bloodline.  The last person to talk the wrong way to Roman was Shiinsuke Nakamura.

Randy asks Sami if he is making calls for Roman and he says that is very cool.  You aren't out here running your mouth, you are a vital part of Smackdown.  Randy says he has a suggestion.  If you are out here and you are a shot caller, you should do this.  Make the match tonight, Sami Zayn versus Riddle and if Riddle wins, they get the Unification Match.  They ask Rusty to do it.

Sami thinks about it and he tells everyone to calm down.  Sami says that will work.  Sami rolls out of the ring and he says this is complication.  It won't happen tonight, maybe a week or two.  He says he has to talk to Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns.

Adam Pearce comes out and he says while he cannot agree with Sami competing on behalf of the Bloodline, people do want to see a match between you and Riddle so the match is official.
