Roman Reigns makes special request of WWE Management

The specifics of the request have not yet been disclosed.

Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair battle Bayley & Carmella

Although the tag teams of SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair and Bayley & Carmella both came up short against WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Charlotte Flair & Asuka last week, the loss did nothing to quell the respective rivalries.

Considering King Corbin’s propensity for doing anything to win, and the certainty that his loyal The Knights Of The Lone Wolf will be at ringside to tip the scales in his favor, is the new titleholder Big E destined to celebrate the New Year (and his new title reign) with a loss?
