Following the events of last week's SmackDown that would see both Jey Uso and Otis require medical attention, this week's SmackDown will be headlined by a tag team match where Roman Reigns will tag with Jey Uso to face Kevin Owens and Otis.
Otis was originally supposed to face Baron Corbin last week, but that all changed when Roman Reigns would give his cousin a tongue lashing about not having his Survivor Series team in check. These words would send Uso into a rage and he would brutalize Otis with a steel chair.
Later in the evening, Kevin Owens would stop Jey Uso from doing further damage to Daniel Bryan and challenge Uso to a match which would see Kevin Owens brutalize Uso with a steel chair before telling Roman Reigns that he had intentions of taking his Universal Championship.
WWE confirmed tonight's tag team match on social media:
It is also very likely that Paul Heyman will be ringside for this main event. On last week's episode of WWE Talking Smack common Paul Heyman and Kevin Owens engaged in a verbal confrontation where Kevin Owens told Paul Heyman that he is not fooled by Paul Heyman’s new persona and he knows that Paul and only works for one person, and that's himself.

Also announced for tonight's episode of SmackDown, via email blast, is a Pat Patterson Memorial Six-Man Tag Team Match which will see Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio, and Big E team up to face Sami Zayn, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Dolph Ziggler.
Fightful will cover SmackDown tonight, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern.
