WWE Friday Night Smackdown Taping results:
– With both Smackdown and Raw taping on Friday, WWE brought over a simplified version of their set:
– Smackdown opened with an in-ring confrontation between Roman Reigns and King Corbin, with Corbin accusing Reigns of having marble-sized testicles. This was to set up the main event for later in the night.
1. Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E) defeated The Revival (c). Before the match, New Day joked about needing more title reigns to keep pace with Charlotte Flair. Sure enough, they’re the new Smackdown Tag Team Champions. After the match, NXT UK faction Imperium attacked. Heavy Machinery tried to make the save, but were also beaten down. Ultimately, the locker room emptied out and Smackdown stars chased Imperium away.
