Ludwig Kaiser shows up on stage and solemnly introduces the ring general Gunther! Of course, Kaiser is none other than Marcel Barthel, also with a new name. Or maybe he is Barthel's younger brother? I don't know, but he's the same.
- Gunther vs Joe Alonzo. Do I really have to describe the match? Some chop and powerslam, a kick on the teeth and final Powerbomb, which gives the first victory on the main roster to the Austrian general. - Backstage Kayla Braxton introduces us to the new SmackDown purchase ...
RAQUEL RODRIGUEZ! But stop changing names at random? Happy Corbin made his way to the ring for another episode of Happy Talk after his loss to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 38. While Madcap Moss seemed to be in a good mood, Corbin was distraught.
Sami Zayn left the ring early on, and Drew McIntyre chased him out before dropping Sami on the barricades. The former WWE Champion sent him back into the ring but Sami tried to bail once more through the entrance ramp.
Sami Zayn has lost again
Drew chased him down and dragged him back to ringside before sending him through the ropes and back into the ring.
The Scottish Warrior set up for the Claymore, and Sami Zayn managed to escape one last time before disappearing into the crowd as the referee counted him out. Madcap Moss continued with his jokes on the mic and then attacked Corbin, to the delight of the fans.
The two men brawled before Moss got the better of Corbin and destroyed the Happy Talk set. Corbin has done a fantastic job at being one of the most despicable characters in WWE over the past few years. Fans were overjoyed at seeing Moss attack his former partner, and the segment helped him turn babyface and get over with the crowd immediately.
The ex Gonzalez shows up but is joined by Angel and Humberto. C'mon, please. The two try to flatter her in their own way, but Raquel pushes them away with a simple and direct, "You don't have the slightest chance."
Zayn’s decision didn’t impress the management. In addition, it prompted the company to strip the star of his title and have an 8-man tournament to determine the new champion. Zayn wasn’t happy with WWE’s call and posted several tweets claiming he was still the champion.
Journalist Dave Meltzer, however, shed some light on the future of the championship and Sami Zayn. He revealed some information that will undoubtedly please the star.
