Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.
Roman says it is a day late but in his household if you have leftovers in the fridge, it is still Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving means three things. Family, good health, and happiness. Roman says he had one of them last year and that was family. It was a tough year but to be in the ring with good health surrounded by new family it means a lot. Roman says he has a lot to be thankful for. On Sunday, Smackdown whooped some ass and he didn’t do it on his own.

Roman says there was one dummy on the team and you know who it is and he won’t thank the dummy. That dummy should be thanking him. Roman says we should bring the dummy out here and make him apologize.
Baron Corbin’s music plays and doe makes his way to the ring.
Corbin says Roman thinks he should come out and apologize. Baron says it was his fearless leadership that won it for Smackdown. He eliminated two people before you selfishly got him eliminated. You had some ulterior motives and your ego couldn’t accept the fact that he would win and be the sole survivor.
Roman reminds Baron he didn’t. He gave Baron a Superman punch and spear and you were eliminated. You can try to get the job done tonight in the ring in Birmingham.
Baron says Roman doesn’t have him fooled like the fans. You are an egomaniac who is a step behind. Baron says with this lack of respect, he will tell you what Thanksgiving was like for a King. He had the finest turkey and wine with servants serving him. Baron says he expected that Roman’s wife burned your turkey but you couldn’t tell. Baron says he is thankful he doesn’t have to put on a fake smile and live in this part of the country where the foot is worse than the football.
