WWE SmackDown live results: Crown Jewel fallout


The fallout from Crown Jewel takes place on tonight's SmackDown from Wichita, Kansas.

Brock Lesnar has issued a threat to Universal Champion Roman Reigns after losing at Crown Jewel yesterday. The finish revolved around Paul Heyman throwing the Universal title in the ring, but it's unclear if he was trying to help Reigns or Lesnar. Lesnar got the belt but dropped it when The Usos interfered, allowing Reigns to win. Heyman ended up leaving with Reigns.

"The moment I arrive at SmackDown, I will beat Roman Reigns senseless," Lesnar said after Crown Jewel.

Tonight's SmackDown will also be the first show where WWE's post-draft rosters are in effect. With SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch and Raw Women's Champion Charlotte Flair each switching brands, WWE is teasing that they'll be swapping their title belts tonight.

Plus, there will be a coronation for Xavier Woods following his King of the Ring win.

Our live coverage begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
