Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman and Kayla Braxton Segment 

Kayla Braxton: Hello everyone and welcome to the post Thanksgiving edition of Friday Night SmackDown. Now, rumors continue to heat up that Brock Lesnar’s indefinite suspension could be lifted.

Paul Heyman: Rumors? Rumors about Brock Lesnar. That’s the best you got, rumors? We don’t do rumors on the island of relevancy. See, that’s your problem, you parade around here like you’re a journalist, like you have breaking news about Brock Lesnar and his suspension when you know how personal it is to The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns and your special consul. But you just wanted to come out here and get some spotlight for yourself with some rumors. Please don’t boo her, none of you are worthy of delivering any judgment upon any of us.

See, I defended you as a co-worker, a co-worker that I’m ashamed of, ashamed of because you bring rumors to Roman Reigns. Here’s what you need to do, dig for some sources, get a confirmation or a denial and come out here with facts, facts next time you’re in the presence of Roman Reigns, because Roman Reigns doesn’t deal with anything but facts and that’s everything wrong about you, Kayla. I used to like you because other people thought you were pretty and here you are, instead of digging for sources, you’re living your life through an Instagram filter. And there’s no Instagram filter to be a legit journalist. And until you’re a legit journalist, this will be your cue to leave the ring of The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. Thank you for your time. Goodnight.

Roman Reigns: Wise Man, would you like to know the problem with rumors? Rumors give losers false hope. And compared to me, everyone is a loser around here, because I’ve beaten them all. I beat them all. And Brock Lesnar is the number one loser around here. I beat him and it wasn’t even ideal conditions. I flew all the way around the world and I smashed his ass. So I’ll repeat it, Brock Lesnar is a loser. I don’t care about the rumors, those are the facts. You want to know who else is a loser? Big E, The WWE Champion is also a loser because I smashed him last week at Survivor Series. But these fools are just part of a big list, I’ve beaten them all.

As a matter of fact, I’m running laps around this roster. It’s getting embarrassing now. Management is getting desperate. What’s the thing they did for tonight? A Black Friday Battle Royal to determine the number one contender to the head of the table? Come on. Battle Royal, Elimination Match, Gauntlet Match, 3-Way, 4-Way, 5-Way, it don’t matter to me. How about we let three of them win tonight? How about four of them could win because I’ll smash them all. And I could do that because I’m the best of the best. I am the Universal Champion. I’m your Tribal Chief. And I’m the greatest of all time. And when my days are done around here, which could be sooner than later, the whole world will acknowledge me.

Charlotte Flair & Toni Storm Segment

No. The only thing I’m disappointed about is the poor officiating in that match, I mean, you saw, all of Greensboro saw, everyone at home saw that the only way Becky Lynch can beat me is by cheating. And congratulations to her, I mean, she’s just as underhanded as I always said she was. Michael, it was a hollow victory. She wasn’t the superior athlete. She’s not stronger than me. She just got lucky. And all that match proved, is Becky is everything that I ever said she was. Becky Lynch knows, deep down, that I’m the better woman.

You’re gonna come after me because I was daring enough to stand up to the high and mighty, Charlotte Flair. So I figured I’d make it easier for you. I’m right here.

Charlotte Flair: Aww, that’s so cute. Toni, you think I was coming after you,  I barely even know you exist.
