The undisputed WWE universal champion Roman Reigns addressed his impending championship clash against Drew Mclntyre at the latest SmackDown episode on Friday.

Mclntyre tried to interrupt the Bloodline. At that very moment, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made an appearance surprising everyone. After their unfamiliar theme song, while Scarlett stood on the entrance ramp, Kross attacked Mclntyre from the back.

Mclntyre will be aiming for the WWE Universal Championship at the Clash at the Castle. He won the right to challenge Reigns after beating Sheamus in an Irish Donnybrook match in the last SmackDown episode.

SmackDown ended with a close-up of Kross’ doomsday clock ticking in the ring. The end of the show was as surprising as boring the entire episode was.

However, a few new championship contenders were decided on Friday night. Shinsuke Nakamura will challenge Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship. Whereas, Shayna Baszler won the Gauntlet match and became the number one contender for SmackDown Women’s Championship.
