The date of the latest chapter in the Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar saga has officially been set on tonight’s (December 3) episode of SmackDown.
On last week’s episode of the show, Sami Zayn won a Black Friday Battle Royal to earn the right to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, before it was announced that Brock Lesnar’s suspension had been lifted.
Lesnar opened tonight’s show, where he convinced Sami Zayn to use his title opportunity tonight, with him facing the winner at WWE Day 1. Sami reluctantly accepted, and well you can guess how well that went.
