Friday night’s edition of Smackdown included several NXT crossover surprises due to several main roster superstars being delayed in Saudi Arabia due to flight issues. One of those was NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler laying out Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley and her best bud, Sasha Banks.
Crown Jewel 10-man tag match team coaches Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan return tomorrow night on Smackdown.
Those drafted (or traded) to Smackdown.
WWE announced yesterday that Bruce Prichard will be the new Executive Director of Friday Night SmackDown, replacing Eric Bischoff. Bischoff only held that role for a few months.
The draft started Friday night on Smackdown on Fox and continues tomorrow night on Raw on the USA Network.
Kevin Owens defeated Shane McMahon last Friday night in a ladder match on the premiere of Smackdown on Fox. The stipulation was that the loser is terminated from WWE.
Not that I’m really surprised, but in like 5 seconds?!
