Following this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown, there has been a big change to the Universal Championship match at the Royal Rumble. Kevin Owens will now face Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing match for the title after Adam Pearce revealed that he had a knee injury and wouldn’t be able to compete.
