The Roman Empire will confront Adam Pearce again on SmackDown next week.
It was announced in an advertisement during the NFL report this afternoon that the world champion Roman Reigns will face a new first contender, the official WWE Adam Pearce. The Royal Battle between the two has officially begun.
Reigns played against Pearce in this week’s SmackDown game, and was frustrated that Pearce had Kevin Owens and Jey Uso in the show last week. Reigns hinted that Pearce hopes to participate in the challenge later in the show, which will determine Reigns’ next challenger. Pierce denied this. Paul Heyman later told Pearce that he was backstage and he pulled some rope to put him in the game. After Reigns and Uso attacked Shinsuke in Nakamura and ordered Pearce to cover, Pearce finally won the challenge. He strives to become the new first competitor.
According to the closing angle of the show, Nakamura and Uso will also be paired for next week̵
