After weeks of speculation, the WWE has revealed that AJ Styles will face Roman Reigns in a match at SummerSlam. With rumors swirling about who would be challenging for the Universal Title, it was finally made official this week on SmackDown!-
The “aew news” is a website that covers the professional wrestling promotion, AEW. The site has revealed that Roman Reigns will be challenged by a new opponent in his upcoming match at WrestleMania 34.
The main event of tonight’s WWE SmackDown was supposed to determine who would be the No. Contender for the Universal Championship held by Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, however a simple one-on-one or triple threat match would suffice. Instead, WWE announced a Black Friday Battle Royal for the No. 1 Contender spot, which featured Sheamus, The Viking Raiders, Sami Zayn, Jinder Mahal, Shanky, Drew Gulak, Angel Garza, Humberto Carrillo, Ricochet, Jeff Hardy, Boogs, Cesaro, Ridge Holland, Baron Corbin, and Madcap Moss, but oddly enough, Drew Mcintyre was left out. Zayn was the first to go, followed by the Viking Raiders.
Then everyone was in the ring, but McIntyre walked down to the ring with his sword and cleared the ring. Adam Pearce stepped out to confront McIntyre, who was enraged with everyone. McIntyre stated it was his fault and instructed him to make him go since he wasn’t leaving until the Battle Royal was over.
During the break, McIntyre decided to go on his own, and as the bell rang, everyone began fighting. Backstage, Reigns and the rest of The Bloodline were waiting to see who would be the next challenger, and it wasn’t Gulak, who had been eliminated by Zayn. Holland attempted to eliminate Ricochet, but he remained in the fight. Sheamus then eliminated Mansoor when he almost recovered.
Mace hoisted Moss, but he escaped, and Cesaro was on the verge of collapsing. Next, Moss was able to eliminate Mace, while Seamus focused on Hardy. Shanky and Moss battled it out, and Moss was successful in eliminating Shanky. Cesaro attempted to eliminate Moss, but Holland and Sheamus attacked Cesaro. They hauled him up, but he was able to go down on his own.
He was even able to toss Holland over, removing him, but Moss then threw Cesaro over, eliminating him as well. Moss and Corbin then rejoiced, but Moss sought to get rid of Corbin as he looked away. They fooled about for a while, but then Corbin grabbed Moss and flung him over, which they both laughed about afterwards.
While Zayn danced around Sheamus, Ricochet managed to avoid elimination. Zayn made it through, while Boogs was eliminated by Garza. Garza, along with Carrillo, was the next to be dispatched by the Raiders. Sheamus attempted to flee the Raiders, but he was struck unconscious. They attempted to throw Sheamus out by lifting him up, but Sheamus defeated both Erik and Ivar. Ricochet then went after Sheamus and won the match. He then had to defend himself against Hardy and Corbin, but Corbin nailed him with a clothesline.
Ricochet landed a flurry of punches on Corbin, but the latter lifted him up and applied a Choke Slam on his knee, then grabbed him and attempted to throw him out, but Ricochet retaliated with a missile dropkick. He attempted to drag Corbin over, but Corbin seized his foot and hit an Enziguri instead. Ricochet was booted and then thrown over the top rope by Sheamus.
Sheamus attempted to free Corbin, but he refused. Hardy then punched both Sheamus and Corbin, and Sheamus knocked Hardy out. Hardy grabbed him with an elbow, then went to the top rope and performed a Whisper in the Wind, but Corbin attempted to escape away. Hardy smacked Corbin with a Twist of Fate and struggled to his feet.
SAMI ZAYN IS THE WINNER.

Sheamus kicked him down again before attacking Corbin. They joined up to toss Hardy over, but he fought back. Corbin then sent Sheamus, and Hardy dispatched Corbin, and that was the end of it, or so we thought. Then Zayn, who had barely gone out of the middle rope moments before, startled Hardy by throwing him over the rope, winning the Battle Royal and becoming the next challenger for Reigns.
