The current WWE World Heavyweight champion started SmackDown with a promo that was met with boos from the Houston crowd. It was very similar to what he said on Monday Night Raw saying that he’s not a good guy or a bad guy, but “The Guy.”

New number one contender A.J. Styles came out to a huge pop and confronted Reigns. The two superstars traded words before the WWE champion left the ring.
