Roman Reigns to clash with Buddy Murphy tonight on SmackDown LIVE
Roman Reigns has accepted the challenge of the man he interrogated last Tuesday, and will go one-on-one with Buddy Murphy tonight on SmackDown LIVE.
The Big Dog first confronted Murphy at the conclusion of last week’s show, demanding that Murphy give answers on what happened to him the previous week in what was assumed to be a forklift accident. When Murphy refused, Reigns pummeled him until he gave up a name: Rowan.
Daniel Bryan’s massive peer attacked Murphy during the SummerSlam Kickoff, telling Murphy to keep his name out of his mouth. After a rough week, The Best Kept Secret did not lay low, instead taking to Twitter to issue a challenge to Roman Reigns:
Been saying for months I want an opportunity to show what I can do. What do I get? A cheap shot and an attack during what could’ve been a GREAT #SummerSlam match. I’m not waiting… I’m challenging @WWERomanReigns to a match tomorrow on #SDLive. GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!

Will Randy Orton respond to Kofi Kingston’s Kendo stick attack?
At SummerSlam, Randy Orton looked to disrespect WWE Champion Kofi Kingston by humiliating him in front of his family. However, Kingston wasn’t having any of that. The WWE Champion unleashed his fury on The Viper, first with a barrage of strikes, then a Kendo stick, and capped off with a thunderous Trouble in Paradise.
Will The Apex Predator have any response to Kingston’s attack?
What’s next for Kevin Owens?
After risking his WWE career to get his hands on Shane McMahon at SummerSlam, Kevin Owens found success at The Biggest Event of The Summer, staggering “The Best in the World” with a Stunner to pick up the victory.
With the win, can KO put McMahon in his rearview mirror, or will Shane-O-Mac continue to be a thorn in his side?
Who will step up to Bayley next?
SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley took on a tenacious Ember Moon Sunday night at SummerSlam and emerged victorious, connecting with a top-rope Bayley-to-Belly to retain her title.
Having turned back The Shenom, what’s next for The Hugger? Who will be next to step up and come after her title? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA!
