A new SmackDown Money in the Bank event led to a one-time “Good Old-Fashioned Battle Royal” that featured competitors from the match as well as other wrestlers.
SmackDown featured a segment with Max Dupri that revealed two new clients for his male model agency, Maximum Male Models MA.CEO and MAN.SWEAR. This was an entertaining segment.
On the last episode of Raw, there were 2.231 million viewers, coming off a high number in the previous week.
Based on crowd reactions, Rollins or Riddle will most likely win the match.
Amos dominated the match before being eliminated by Sheamus and McIntyre. He eliminated himself because he didn’t want the smoke.
I’m not sure a “Good Old-Fashioned Battle Royal” is the best way to increase your Black following.
There was one person who received overwhelming crowd support throughout this match, which was Riddle. Fans loudly chanted his name, and no one else’s. For what it’s worth, there were also chants of “bum-ass Corbin.”
Sheamus received a lot of heat after eliminating Riddle from the Final Five. I hope WWE doesn’t think they can get Riddle over by beating him repeatedly. If they want to push Riddle, as they should, he should be built up as a winner and not a lovable loser.
Corbin won the Good Old-Fashioned Battle Royal by hiding from under the ring and eliminating both Sheamus and Drew McIntyre. Pat McAfee was not impressed.
The Viking Raiders Destroy The New Day
Michael Cole talked up the “New Vicious Viking Raiders” as Vikings who plunder, pillage, and raid. He took his time to make sure he carefully said that third word in order to not create any confusion.
It appears that the joke “Julien” was good enough for Xavier Woods to pay Kofi Kingston $5 since it technically worked.
The Viking Raiders are still new and debuting against WWE superstars from the past may be used to determine if the Viking Raiders will have a bright future.
The Viking Raiders obtained new shields that we’re able to withstand the assaults and actually push back against the onslaught of The New Day.
CEO Dae Sung Ryu Wins Battle of the Brands
Becky Lynch made an unadvertised appearance on SmackDown
Becky Lynch claims that she’s “Big Brainy Becks,” and Michael Cole cleverly replies back by stating that she’s had a lot of “mental problems.”
Liv Morgan crashed and burned by doing a suicide dive to the outside and only was able to pull it together to win the match for her team with an Oblivion.
The Usos and Street Profits: Ask Them Anything
The WWE is trying to keep the ratings high on SmackDown with three different segments called “Ask Them Anything,” “Battle of the Brands,” and “Good Old-Fashioned Battle Royal.”
Kayla Braxton of the Street Profits said in this portion that there might be bad blood between members of the team. Montez Ford brushed off this claim as coming from “dirt sheets.”
Max Dupri Introduces ‘Ma-se’ and ‘Man-swah’
This introduction of “Max DuuuPREEEEE” will get LA Knight over his old career and previous robberies.
Max Dupri introduced a new product, Mace and Mansoor. He was entertaining in the way he described their appearances and talked about what their qualities are. This has a lot of promise for the future, you should check it out!
Madcap Moss Wins Fatal 4-Way
Why does Happy Corbin have to compete in a Fatal 4-Way if he already won the Battle Royal? What type of victory did he need exactly?
Madcap Moss has just defeated Happy Corbin to compete for the Universal Championship in SummerSlam. I predict tomorrow, during the Money in the Bank PPV, WWE will run an angle to set up this match between Corbin and McAfee.
