Two nights before The Bloodline goes to battle, Roman Reigns will share his side of the story on his relationship with Jey Uso before their Universal Title Match.
The cousins have teamed up for a pair of wins over Sheamus & King Corbin in recent weeks on the blue brand, but the possible rifts in the relationship have bubbled up. After last weeks Samoan Street Fight win, an icy staredown from The Big Dog followed what originally appeared to be a heartfelt celebration between Reigns and Uso.
With WWE Clash of Champions on the horizon, what will Reigns have to say before stepping into the ring with family?

Jeff Hardy and Sami Zayn to go head-to-head before WWE Clash of Champions
Before they share the ring with AJ Styles at WWE Clash of Champions, Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy and Sami Zayn will face off in a non-title match on Friday Night SmackDown.
Controversy continued to find Zayn last week on the blue brand, as The Great Liberators pin was called off due to him grasping Styles tights during the maneuver. The Phenomenal One capitalized on the distracted Zayn and secured a roll-up win of his own. The chaotic situation surrounding the Intercontinental Title continued, as The Charismatic Enigma then entered to attack both competitors and lay down a challenge for the pay-per-view event.
Who will leave the blue brand with the upper hand before the Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat Winner Take All Ladder Match on Sunday?

Alexa Bliss to take on Lacey Evans after last weeks Sister Abigail attack
Alexa Bliss will battle Lacey Evans on Friday Night SmackDown following Bliss shocking Sister Abigail attack on The Sassy Southern Belle last week.
The Fiend continues to have some sort of hold over Bliss, as the energetic Superstar has snapped into a trance multiple times in recent weeks. After falling to Nikki Cross, Evans uttered The Fiends name, and Bliss once again fell into a hypnosis-like state before dishing out the Sister Abigail.
Will Bliss be able to stay focused on the match? Or will a stronger force pull her in another direction?
