WWE SmackDown results: Live recap, grades as Roman Reigns returns ahead of Logan Paul match at Crown Jewel

Roman Reigns is back on WWE SmackDown. The undisputed WWE universal champion returns to his kingdom ahead of a title defense against social media sensation Logan Paul at Crown Jewel in November. The action kicks off from Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah at 8 pm ET on Friday night.

Paul challenged Reigns to a one-on-one match on last week’s broadcast of the blue brand. A Las Vegas press conference took place the next day and officially cemented their Saudi Arabia headliner. Reigns is set to appear on this week’s episode of SmackDown ahead of that big-ticket matchup.

Two matches are scheduled in advance of SmackDown. Undisputed WWE tag team champions The Usos defend their titles against Ridge Holland and Butch, representing the Brawling Brutes. Holland and Butch won a fatal four-way tag team match on last week’s show to earn the status of No. 1 contenders. Also on the card, Braun Strowman will wrestle his first WWE match in 16 months against Otis.

CBS Sports is with you all night with recaps and highlights of all the action from Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City.
