After being taped in Manchester, England earlier in the day, SmackDown aired on FOX last night and was headlined by Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin.
Corbin cut a promo mocking Reigns in the opening segment. In the main event, Corbin defeated Reigns after getting help from Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.
The episode included a segment that wasn’t shown to those in the arena at the tapings. As Sami Zayn was talking to Daniel Bryan backstage, Universal Champion The Fiend appeared and put Bryan in the Mandible Claw.
The New Day’s seventh Tag Team title reign in WWE began as they defeated The Revival, Shayna Baszler attacked Bayley for the second straight week, and NXT UK’s Imperium stable made an appearance.
