WWE FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN/FOX: Tonight's lineup


Posted on 2/02/124 by Bob Magee



Roman Reigns returns to begin his Road to WrestleMania

After overcoming Randy Orton, LA Knight and AJ Styles in a
Fatal 4-Way Match at Royal Rumble, Undisputed WWE Universal
Champion Roman Reigns makes his triumphant return to
SmackDown to begin his Road to WrestleMania.

Standing supreme for more than 1,240 days, The Head of the
Table has conquered the best in the business and seems all
but unstoppable on The Island of Relevancy.

Moments after winning the Royal Rumble Match as well as
during the press conference after the Premium Live Event,
Cody Rhodes made it clear that he had every intention of
challenging Reigns in an attempt to finally finish his story
at The Showcase of the Immortals. His path hit an unexpected
turn, though, when World Heavyweight Champion Seth "Freakin"
Rollins confronted Rhodes on Raw and declared that he was
the man that Rhodes needed to defeat for the "true
championship" on The Grandest Stage of Them All.


Logan Paul journeys to SmackDown following Royal Rumble
controversy

Moments after he got disqualified for using the brass
knuckles that Logan Paul introduced during an intense United
States Title Match at Royal Rumble, an irate Kevin Owens
responded by powerbombing the arrogant titleholder through
the announce table after the match.

This Friday, Logan is set to make his return to the blue
brand after his controversial victory, and KO will likely be
looking to get another piece of the outspoken titleholder.


Bayley to declare who she will challenge at WrestleMania
after Royal Rumble victory

Just 48 hours after outlasting 29 other Superstars to win
the Royal Rumble Match, Bayley came to Raw seemingly ready
to declare which Women's Championship she would pursue at
The Grandest Stage of Them All. While most believed that she
would select Women's World Champion Rhea Ripley, considering
that WWE Women's Champion IYO SKY is her ally in Damage
CTRL, The Role Model had her announcement cut short when Nia
Jax attacked the emerging Eradicator.

With Ripley laid out in the ring, Jax warned Bayley that The
Eradicator won't even make it to WrestleMania. In response,
Bayley explained that she plans on making her decision this
Friday on the blue brand.


Cody Rhodes comes to SmackDown after Rumble victory

2024 Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes will be at SmackDown to
discuss his historic victory as well as what's on his mind
following an explosive encounter with World Heavyweight
Champion Seth "Freakin" Rollins on Raw.

The American Nightmare seemed determined to challenge
Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a rematch
from their main event match at WrestleMania 39, but Rollins
threw a wrench into that idea by daring Rhodes to challenge
him instead.

What will Rhodes have to say on The Road to WrestleMania?
