WWE has modified SmackDown once again

The WWE has accustomed us, especially in recent years to making numerous changes in its shows, from the timing of the matches or the actual format of the same, such as Monday Night Raw which has passed a few years ago to be a three hour show and no longer a show for two, or like many other aspects that McMahon have wanted to change over time, such as the NXT brand, which in the last year has undergone a real total revolution.

If all this were not enough, the WWE also changes numerous plans from week to week, with its shows that very often do not air as they were expected, but undergo numerous changes and numerous changes in the course of work, especially in the last period, due to the positivity linked to the covid of the world pandemic.

Even the last episode of Friday Night SmackDown would have undergone some changes, with the creative team of the company that has been at work until the last second, to modify in detail what Vince McMahon had asked them for evening.

According to what was stated in the last hours by the journalists of the usual Fightful Select, in this week's episode of Friday Night SmackDown we should have heard and seen a promo made by Ridge Holland, against the former WWE Champion Big E, who was injured on last Friday, precisely because of a move by European talent.

What happened on SmackDown?

According to reporters, Ridge Holland should have raged over Big E's terrible neck injury, which resulted in him fracturing two cervical vertebrae, but for some reason, WWE ultimately decided to trash those plans.

The other change was the one that saw Drew McIntyre join forces with the Viking Raiders against Happy Corbin, Jinder Mahal and Shanky. Apparently, Shanky was not initially scheduled for the match but was added later, to replace Madcap Moss, who was absent for reasons as yet unknown.

Last week’s best match on WWE SmackDown saw Sasha Banks and Naomi lock horns with Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan in an epic in-ring battle. However, their match ended in DQ after Natalya and Shayna Baszler ran an unexpected interference.

Later in the night, Sonya Deville added Natalya and Baszler to the women's tag team title match at WrestleMania 38. Shinsuke Nakamura and Rick Boogs engaged in an impressive tag team match against Los Lotahrios on the show. Boogs was particularly impressive as his team looked to gain momentum ahead of the title match against The Usos.
