WWE SmackDown Twist: Randy Orton, LA Knight, AJ Styles Join Forces to Confront The Bloodline

In the most recent episode of “WWE SmackDown,” General Manager Nick Aldis reached the point of exasperation with The Bloodline’s interference in unrelated matches. Expressing his dissatisfaction to Paul Heyman, Aldis made it clear that they did not share equal footing.

Consequently, Aldis orchestrated the main event featuring Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso, and Roman Reigns against Randy Orton, LA Knight, and AJ Styles.

When Heyman reminded him of the absence of “The Tribal Chief,” Aldis humorously remarked about the reigning Undisputed WWE Universal Champion’s penchant for initiating confrontations he couldn’t see through. He then informed Sikoa and Uso that, in the absence of a partner, a handicap match awaited them.

Throughout the night, Heyman attempted to entice someone into being the mystery partner but faced repeated rejections. Ultimately, the main event shifted from a six-man to a 3-on-2 handicap match, with Sikoa and Uso preemptively sidelining Orton during his entrance to level the playing field.

Knight and Styles traversed the familiar babyface narrative of questioning their ability to coexist for the majority of the match.

Styles reminded Knight of his past betrayal, although it was “The Phenomenal One” who assailed Knight upon his return last month. While they eventually collaborated to dismantle their opponents, the situation looked dire when, inevitably, Orton’s music played.

“The Viper” entered the scene, getting tagged in by Styles. Following Orton’s successful clearing of the ring and victory, the trio of faces sequentially executed their finishing moves on Sikoa.

They then united to neutralize Uso before subjecting Sikoa to the announce desk, collectively sending a forceful message to their Royal Rumble adversary, Reigns. Reigns is slated to defend his title against Orton, Styles, and Knight in a consequential fatal four-way match.
