Tuesday's SmackDown ended with a weird closing segment that involved Roman Reigns almost getting squashed by some backstage props.
All in all, this week's episode of SmackDown was pretty good. So good, in fact, that we're struggling to pick which part of the show was our favorite. Despite some shaky mic skills between Trish Stratus and Jerry Lawler, that segment was saved when Charlotte Flair entered the fray. Plus, everything involving Bray Wyatt's Fiend was terrifically done, as always.
Our favorite part of the show, however, was probably the main event match between Kofi Kingston and AJ Styles. A main event match anywhere in the world, and we got to see it on SmackDown. The match was given time and although it will be better when it hopefully happens on a PPV one day soon, we thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so that we completely forgot there was more to come after the match.
For the duration of the evening, WWE had been teasing that SmackDown would end with Roman Reigns revealing his SummerSlam opponent. After the aforementioned match, the show cut to Kayla Braxton backstage who eas eagerly awaiting Reigns' arrival. We knew something was up when The Big Dog was shown walking casually towards Braxton from a distance. We were not expecting what happened next.
As Reigns approached Braxton, a bunch of scaffolding and boxes fell on top of him. Braxton panicked and employees rushed in to free Reigns from under the rubble. If you've seen the segment, you don't need us to tell you that it was all staged. After Reigns was helped up, he angrily told EMTs that he was fine and that none of the falling debris had actually hit or hurt him.
Reigns then walked off and the show just sort of, ended. No explanation as to what happened or any revelation as to who Reigns will face at SummerSlam. We're assuming someone pushed the scaffolding and props onto Reigns as he walked past, and that person will be his SummerSlam opponent. However, with only one Raw and one SmackDown left until the PPV, that doesn't leave much time to tease who it could have been before the big reveal.
