The first Friday Night SmackDown after the Elimination chamber was all about Roman Reigns who successfully defended his title at the last pay-per-view and Bianca Belair who finally revealed the name of the champion that she will face at WrestleMania 37.

Roman Reigns kicked off the show by saying, “I don’t think it’s a secret: SmackDown needs me,” basking in the glory of his victory over Daniel Bryan. However, he was interrupted midway by Daniel Bryan as the former champion issued a challenge to Reigns for a match at Fastlane before Jey Uso blindsided him, resulting in a match between the two later in the night.
