What's up gang and welcome to Wrestling Lockup with Brandon: WWE Smackdown Edition, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE.

- This week's Smackdown took place in Newark, New Jersey and what a week it's been in WWE. Roman Reigns left this past Sunday's WWE TLC event wondering if he still had a job going into RAW, after attacking the company COO, Triple H, at the finale of the event. WWE Owner and President, Vince McMahon, spared Reigns a firing, as long as he could defeat Sheamus and win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on RAW. Reigns did what hasn't been done too often on RAW in it's 22 year run and walked out the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, defeating Sheamus. Now we look ahead to the Royal Rumble, as the Roman Empire has begun.

- Roman Reigns Promo: Smackdown kicks off with the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns. Reigns says it felt great winning the title on his daughters birthday, showed his family the title to show his sacrifices were paid off, thinks he doesn't have long left in WWE after hospitalizing Triple H and Superman Punching Vince McMahon, but until then he'll savior this moment. Sheamus interrupts and stands on the ramp. Sheamus congratulates Reigns and is happy for him, but Reigns should definitely savior this moment because Sheamus will soon get back the title. Reigns tells Sheamus to bring the fight.

Sheamus says Stephanie McMahon figured Reigns would say that so she hired security. A group of security guards head to the ring to escort Reigns out of the building. Reigns unloads on security, tossing a couple of them to the floor and Superman Punching a few others. Reigns celebrates to end the segment.
