WWE has pre-taped tonight’s edition of Friday Night Smackdown in Manchester, England. The show will air in its normal timeslot on FOX tonight at 8:00 PM ET. Obviously, major spoilers to follow. Proceed at your own risk.
– King Corbin kicked off the show and trashed Manchester and Roman Reigns to loud boos. Reigns came out and the two went back-and-forth on the mic to set up a match for later, which is what they’ve been doing at house shows. People did not seem to like this segment.
(1) THE NEW DAY (KOFI KINGSTON & BIG E) def. THE REVIVAL (c) to become the new WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions
– New Day celebrated their big win until… they’re jumped by all four members of Imperium from the NXT UK brand! The beatdown continued until several members of the Smackdown roster made the save. I think I saw Heavy Machinery in there, as well as a few others.
(2) SHINSUKE NAKAMURA & CESARO def. ALI & CHAD GABLE
(3) SASHA BANKS def. NIKKI CROSS
– Sasha Banks has a remixed version of her theme song with the lyrics from Snoop Dogg from her WrestleMania 32 entrance, according to several reports.
– Bayley attacked Nikki Cross after the match once Sasha was done with her. NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler once again made a surprise appearance, attacking Bayley and laying her out with the Gutwrench Flatliner she used last week.
(4) CARMELLA & DANA BROOKE def. MANDY ROSE & SONYA DEVILLE
(5) KING CORBIN def. ROMAN REIGNS after interference from Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode
– Tyson Fury is out to close the show to a tremendous reaction. Braun Strowman out next to confront him. Fury talks about their match at Crown Jewel and basically pitches that they’d be unstoppable if they teamed up together. The B-Team came out and got themselves absolutely destroyed.
