Welcome to EWrestlingNews’ WWE Friday Night SmackDown results for September 23, 2022!
Roman Reigns and The Bloodline, with Paul Heyman, are out to open the show with a promo. Heyman puts over Reigns and The Usos, who vow to still be Unified WWE Tag Team Champions by the end of the night. Reigns’ music plays but Sami Zayn tells them to cut the music. He said he wants to take a moment to acknowledge Reigns.
Reigns says he likes Zayn, but doesn’t know why he’s talking. He orders Zayn to take off his Bloodline shirt, but when Zayn refuses, Reigns has The Usos rip the shirt off.
