Edge attacked Roman Reigns and Jimmy Uso
One week after making history against Rey Mysterio in SmackDown’s first-ever Hell in a Cell Match, Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his Special Council Paul Heyman emerged to carry out a State Of the Universal Championship Address. After Heyman ran down the list of Superstars that The Head of the Table had overcome and claimed that they had wiped out the entire division, Reigns was set to take over the mic.
Then out of nowhere, WWE Hall of Famer Edge returned for the first time since losing to Reigns in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania! The frenzied Edge unleashed a brutal attack on The Head of the Table that culminated with an earth-shattering Spear. Before Edge could hit the Con-Chair-To on Reigns, however, Jimmy Uso emerged to suffer in his cousin’s place. Moments later, Edge Speared Uso through the barricade and began screaming for Reigns.
