Adam Pearce Becomes The New #1 Contender For The Universal Championship on SmackDown


This week on SmackDown Roman Reigns called out WWE authority figure Adam Pearce after he booked a match between Reigns and Kevin Owens last week on the show. The Tribal Chief was less than pleased about it as well. Paul Heyman then later ran into Pearce backstage, and let him know he used his influence to get him into the gauntlet match. Despite being a long time wrestling veteran Pearce has been serving in an authority figure role on WWE TV till now.

The match itself came down to Shinsuke Nakamura and Adam Pearce, but Roman Reigns and Jey Uso took out Nakamura and threw Pearce on top of him for the pin. Yes..that means Adam Pearce will now challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the upcoming Royal Rumble event.

Scrap Daddy Vs The Tribal Chief is set, now the only question is..can Pearce do the unthinkable and finally achieve a long time goal in the business, becoming WWE Champion.
