WWE Smackdown: Tonight’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown ended in a chaotic brawl between Kevin Owens and Jey Uso, with a match ending rather quickly and then devolving into a brutal message from Owens to Roman Reigns to end the night.
After Uso had spent most of the night assaulting various SmackDown superstars, Owens took to the ring to face off against Uso. In a surprisingly brutal match between two superstars who clearly weren’t fond of each other, it was Owens who won, although it came after a brutal chair shot from Uso late in the match to cause the referee to ring the bell for a disqualification. Following the end of the match, Uso continued to attack Owens with the chair, with Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman watching from a monitor backstage.
After attacking Owens for a bit more, Uso eventually got hit with a Stunner to drop him for a moment. Owens then picked up a chair and began his own assault of Uso, viciously hitting him in the back over and over again as he turned to the camera and told Reigns that he wasn’t afraid of anything, including him. The segment ended with Owens once again hitting a Stunner on Uso, then taking a seat at the head of the commentary desk and telling Reigns that he’ll be waiting.
