WWE Universe, brace yourselves for an electrifying start to 2024! The first SmackDown episode of the year, slated for January 5th, is gearing up to be a sensational event. Fans have been buzzing with anticipation, especially regarding the appearance of the renowned "Tribal Chief," Roman Reigns.

Despite his recent shift to a part-time schedule, Reigns is confirmed to make a grand appearance at the New Year's Revolution-themed show, set to take place at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, is not just gracing the January 5th episode; he is also scheduled to appear on the January 19th episode at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta.

This assures fans that Reigns will not be missing the initial SmackDown of 2024, much to the delight of his legion of followers.

Triple-Threat Showdown Set

The New Year's Revolution episode is shaping up to be a blockbuster, with WWE announcing several high-stakes matches and segments.

Among these is the eagerly awaited triple-threat match featuring Randy Orton, LA Knight, and AJ Styles. The victor of this intense showdown will earn a coveted title shot against the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion at the Royal Rumble.

Current storylines hint at a brewing confrontation between Reigns and "The Viper" Randy Orton at Royal Rumble 2024. Orton has been on a determined quest to dismantle The Bloodline, making his intentions clear since joining the blue brand.

His ultimate goal? Snatching the Undisputed Title from Reigns. This escalating feud, a highlight of recent SmackDown episodes, is poised to reach its climax at the January 27 spectacle at Tropicana Field. The showdown between Reigns and Orton promises to be a breathtaking encounter, potentially setting the stage for Orton to triumph in the triple threat match at the New Year's Revolution.

Such a win would pit him against the Undisputed Champion in a match that's sure to captivate the WWE audience. As we step into the new year, the WWE continues to deliver top-tier entertainment, blending athletic prowess with compelling storylines.

With Roman Reigns' presence confirmed, the first SmackDown episodes of 2024 are guaranteed to be unmissable events, setting a high bar for the rest of the year in sports entertainment.
