Tonight’s SmackDown (January 12) promised a WWE match that never came to fruition following a pre-bell assault. Grayson Waller, scheduled to face Cameron Grimes in the opening bout, saw their match disrupted.

Waller and Austin Theory, his close ally, had already entered the ring when Cameron Grimes was attacked before making it down the ramp. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa, with Paul Heyman joining in, targeted Grimes, not only incapacitating him but also taking down security guards.

In response, Waller and Theory decided to exit, leaving the ring to the marauding faction known as the Bloodline. Heyman, addressing the crowd, shifted the blame for the chaos onto Nick Aldis.

Summoning SmackDown’s General Manager to the ring, Heyman’s hopes of canceling Roman Reigns’ Fatal Four-Way match at the Royal Rumble were dashed. Aldis, however, announced a main event featuring Randy Orton, AJ Styles, and LA Knight teaming up against Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa, and Roman Reigns.

Heyman scoffed at the idea of Reigns being in Nebraska, but Aldis retorted that the decision was up to the Bloodline. If they declined, it would become a 3-on-2 handicap match in the main event.

Post-commercial break, the match was listed with a series of question marks regarding the partners. When Jimmy Uso inquired about their teammate, Heyman revealed that the entire locker room had been vying to join the Bloodline, and he would find a suitable partner. Solo Sikoa, however, expressed unwavering confidence, stating, “I never worry.”
