During the Friday Night SmackDown broadcasts via FOX, it has been confirmed that Roman Reigns will defend the Universal Championship against Adam Pearce at Royal Rumble 2021 WWE’s next pay-per-view.
The Smackdown main event saw Shinsuke Nakamura King Corbin Daniel Bryan Rey Mysterio and Sami Zayn competing in a Gauntlet Match for a shot at the Universal title. Before the match, Paul Heyman announced to Commissioner Adam Pearce that champion Roman Reigns chose to add him to this match. The match started when Rey Mysterio quickly finished off Sami Zayn using the 619 and Frog Splash.
Shinsuke Nakamura entered the ring and surprised with his performance by
knocking out Mysterio, King Corbin, and Daniel Bryan. However, “The King of Strong Style” was not spared from the dirty games of Roman Reigns and Jey Uso. The two attacked Nakamura before Adam Pearce entered the ring. Refusing to iron his rival, Adam received a Superkick from Jey and was dragged towards Shinsuke for victory on the count of three.
