This is the final Friday Night SmackDown before it moves to Thursdays starting next week, January 15. This show was taped Tuesday at Laredo Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas. The Authority’s golden boy, Seth Rollins, will kick of tonight’s episode. We’ll also see a triple threat tag team championship match with The Usos vs. Miz, Mizdow vs. Gold & Stardust. We’ll see the drama between Big Show and Roman Reigns continue to unfold. There will also be a new WWE Superstar announced as a participant in the upcoming 2015 Royal Rumble match. After Naomi was attacked by Alicia Fox backstage on Raw, Naomi will get the chance to settle the score tonight. Join us here at PMN for live updates and match results from tonight’s episode of SmackDown. We will also post video highlights as they become available.
Seth Rollins opens the show and announces the HW championship match at Royal Rumble will be a triple threat match with Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena. Rollins asks to toll the bell in remembrance of Ryback, Ziggler and Rowan. As the bell starts to sound, Roman Reigns walks out. Rollins is accompanied by Mercury and Noble. Reigns cleans house and runs all three of them off. But as they’re about to go backstage, Big Show and Kane come out. Kane announces Reigns will face Rollins and Big Show tonight, and he can have a partner if he can find one — keeping in mind what happened when Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan went up against the Authority.
