Roman Reigns defeated Daniel Bryan in the main event of this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown. As part of the stipulation of the match, Daniel Bryan is now ‘banished’ from the blue brand and Friday nights on FOX.

Reigns sent out a video on social media, saying that Bryan should be ‘thanking him’ for finishing his SmackDown career.

“Already putting in the work, just a few hours removed on Saturday morning” Reigns said in a mid workout video. “Last night, I achieved greatness once again. As I’m hitting this cardio, I’m sitting here thinking, the whole world should be thanking me.”

“Daniel Bryan, you should be thanking me” Reigns continued. “I’m a man of my word, I did what I said I was going to do. Not only did I give the audience what they need, I got rid of you and I’m driving us forward, taking care of the future, getting rid of the old.”

“I gave you what you wanted. You made it clear; you were looking for a new door” Roman Reigns exclaimed. “What better way to go through the new one when the old one hits you in the ass? That’s what I did, I closed this door on you.”

“We’re going to live the ‘Show up and Win’ mantra and keep putting work in” Reigns added. “Next Friday on SmackDown, not only do I expect you to acknowledge me — we’re not talking about you Daniel Bryan, we’re done with you. Go have fun, be a dad, save the world, hug a tree, whatever you want to do — To the WWE Universe.”

“Some of them call you that, but to me your mine. You’re my audience and my people” Reigns concluded. “Not only are you going to acknowledge me on Friday, you’re going to thank me.”
