Roman Reigns Appearance, Braun Strowman vs. Otis Set For 9/23 WWE SmackDown

The Tribal Chief returns to WWE SmackDown next week.

WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns will return to SmackDown on September 23 in his first appearance since Clash at the Castle. In doing so, he will likely further his new feud with Logan Paul a few days after their press conference on September 17.

Additionally, that episode will feature Braun Strowman taking on Otis. The bout will mark Strowman’s first WWE match since WWE WrestleMania Backlash in May 2021. It will also be the first singles match between Strowman and Otis. Alpha Academy attacked Strowman on the September 16 episode of SmackDown, and “The Monster Among Men” will surely be looking for revenge next week.

Plus, Butch and Ridge Holland of The Brawling Brutes will challenge The Usos for the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championship. Butch and Holland earned the title match by winning a four-way contender’s match on September 16.

Below is the updated lineup for next Friday:

  • WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. Brawling Brutes
  • Braun Strowman vs. Otis
  • Roman Reigns appears

WrestleZone will have complete coverage of SmackDown as it airs.
