First aired on June 4, 2021
Today’s show begins with WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman. Reigns says he wasn’t happy last week that Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso will be fighting for the Tag titles. He had a week to think about it and he changed his mind. But if Jimmy says he’s going to win, he’d better win too. Reigns doesn’t want to waste any more time as he has a lot to do. He calls out his cousins, whereupon The Usos make their way into the hall. Jey confirms that Reigns is the “Tribal Chief and the WWE Universal Champion wants to hear this from Jimmy too. Jimmy explains that they will win the Smackdown Tag Team Championship today, after which Roman reiterates that he should better turn his words into actions. He reminds Jimmy that the whole family is watching.

WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair comes in for a promo. She thought Bayley would have noticed by now that the fans were more laughing at her than at her. Bayley isn’t the first person to try to keep her down. She used to be called a show-off or manly because she is muscular and athletic. But Belair left all of these people behind as it brought in one success after another. She’s been through a lot, but no one has ever laughed in her face. That was disrespectful and she won’t accept it either. So she challenges Bayley to a match on “Hell in a Cell”. There she will be the one who laughs. Bayley now laughs and speaks over the big screen. She accepts the challenge and says she won’t be the only one laughing.
