Hello and welcome to the Friday Night SmackDown report. Roman Reigns will return to defend his WWE Undisputed Universal Title against Riddle, but in recent days the Vince McMahon scandal has definitely overshadowed every other event.
In the Target Center in Minneapolis, everything is ready, at the keyboard your SimoneSian, we can begin. - The episode opens with the entry of Vince McMahon! The now-former Chairman (just writing it feels surreal) says that it is a privilege to be in front of the WWE Universe and adds that he just wants to remember the four keywords that have accompanied the company for years: then, now, forever, together.
Welcome to SmackDown! Vince leaves without saying anything else, waiting for a judge to decide what will become of his future. And, perhaps, we should all learn to do the same. - Riddle reaches the square! The Bro says he has been waiting for this opportunity for a long time, he knows that all of his friends and his family are watching him from home, including Randy Orton.
Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss competed in the final match of their rivalry on this week’s show. The first-ever Last Laugh match had no special stipulation - making it just another regular match.
Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss competed
For 20 years his "best Bro" killed legends, threw The Undertaker into the fire and sacrificed everything to entertain us, so now he thanks The Viper on behalf of the entire WWE Universe and promises he will win the title to dedicate it to him.
Riddle starts Orton's theme and the segment ends like this. - Madcap Moss vs Happy Corbin. Unreleased matches, which they have not been repeating for a month practically every week. And always with the same winner, by the way.
Moss's first Punch Line only leads to a 2 count, but Madcap repeats the move and takes home the win. After the match Moss takes the microphone and simply says the name of his opponent, then starts laughing. - Backstage the Street Profits summarize the evening's card and then remind us that, at Money In The Bank, they will face Usos for the Tag Team titles.
And we want the smoke! Ok. The match was entertaining and Moss deserved to win it. The events that followed could lead to a match between Corbin and McAfee at SummerSlam. The former NFL star proved himself against Austin Theory at WrestleMania 38, and he could be in for another big match in the months to come.
