Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre face-to-face set for WWE SmackDown


A face-to-face meeting between Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns is set for next week’s SmackDown.

In addition, The Viking Raiders are set to hold a ‘viking funeral’ for The New Day. The opening round of the WWE Women’s Tag Team title tournament is also set to finish next Friday, with Natalya & Sonya Deville facing NXT’s Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark.

On Friday’s SmackDown, Drew McIntyre was jumped by The Usos after Scarlett came to the ring, serving as a distraction. Later backstage, McIntyre jumped the Usos, saying he was tired of them interfering in his business. McIntyre and Reigns are set to meet for the WWE Universal title on September 3 at WWE Clash at the Castle.

Friday’s show also had The Viking Raiders attack Kofi Kingston prior to Ivar’s match against Kingston. The two had also recently taken out Xavier Woods after using their viking shields to attack Woods’ leg, which was wrapped in a chair.

  • Face-to-face between Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns
  • The Viking Raiders to hold ‘viking funeral’ for The New Day
