In recent weeks, one of the most eventful storylines of Friday Night Smackdown's mid-carding has undoubtedly been the one between the King of strong style, Shinsuke Nakamura and the king of the WWE ring, the last King of the Ring in its history: Baron Corbin.
After seeing Rick Boogs' main roster debut in the ring, right alongside the Japanese, with the former NXT showing off his electric guitar-in-hand skills to all WWE Universe fans, we also witnessed the sensational defeat of the king of the ring, who lost his crown against Nakamura in one of the last episodes of the McMahon blue show.
Latest update on Baron Corbin
If in the last episode of the blue show we saw Baron Corbin no longer being called "King Corbin" by the show's commentators and interviewers and the same athlete would then also have been spotted without his classic ring attire complete with cape and scepter, now we also the official return to "normality" for the athlete.
After over a year of being the king of all fans of the WWE Universe, King Corbin is now back to being simply Baron Corbin, for WWE and its fans, as also confirmed by the new (old) graphics shown on the official website of the Stamford-based company.
Having thus lost his crown, King Corbin would also be raised the "ranks" of the king of the ring, with his character changing from week to week in the Stamford company ring. After this week's coronation of Nakamura, Corbin's archenemy, we will see where the WWE will go with this storyline, which will also see some changes later in time, which will surely lead to great things the last king of the ring of the recent history of the Stamford company.
Shinsuke Nakamura's coronation on the recent episode of SmackDown wasn't the only highlight of the night. The final segment of the show was scheduled for WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns to address his future. However, before Reigns could even open his mouth, he was interrupted by the return of none other than WWE Hall of Famer Edge.
Edge hasn't been seen on SmackDown or WWE programming since his loss in the triple threat main event at WrestleMania 37. He has now returned to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Money in the Bank.
The Rated-R Superstar is also expected to confront Roman Reigns on the upcoming episode of SmackDown. It's safe to assume that he will be trying to ascend the throne once again as soon as possible on SmackDown.
