A contract signing segment has been announced for SmackDown’s Royal Rumble go-home show.
Before challenging “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble, Daniel Bryan will take part in a contract signing with Wyatt on SmackDown tomorrow. The Fiend vs. Bryan at the PPV will be a strap match.
The strap match stipulation was made official after a challenge issued by Bryan on SmackDown last week. The show opened with an angle where Kane and Bryan tried to set a trap for The Fiend, but The Fiend escaped back through the ring when Bryan attacked him.
Bryan then did an interview challenging The Fiend to make their title match at the Royal Rumble a strap match.
During his promo, Bryan said the stipulation was his idea for how to beat someone who disappears every time they’re in trouble. And while he understands that The Fiend will try to whip the flesh off his body and try to rip his arm out of his socket, Bryan is done with the mind games.
The American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas is hosting tomorrow’s SmackDown. Roman Reigns & The Usos vs. Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode is also set for the show.
