Reigns celebration, Kingston vs. Moss rematch set for WWE SmackDown

Roman Reigns & The Usos will acknowledge Reigns' record-breaking Universal title reign.

A pair of announcements have been made for tonight's episode of SmackDown.

On tonight's show, The Bloodline (Roman Reigns & The Usos) will "acknowledge and celebrate Reigns for his record-breaking 508 days as the Universal Champion." Reigns' current title reign recently surpassed Brock Lesnar's 2017-2018 reign for the longest in the history of the Universal Championship.

Reigns won the Universal Championship by defeating "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match at Payback in August 2020. He's set to defend the title against Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble later this month.

A face-to-face confrontation with Reigns and Rollins headlined last week's SmackDown. Rollins was able to avoid an ambush by The Usos then, but they showed up on Raw this Monday and laid him out with a superkick.

A rematch between Kofi Kingston and Madcap Moss has also been added to tonight's SmackDown. Moss defeated Kingston when they faced off last week.

Tonight's SmackDown is taking place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The episode will also feature SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Naomi in a non-title match.
