WWE Smackdown Friday Night Results: Roman Reigns and Baron Corbin collided in Manchester, England, but The Big Dog ultimately had to deal with a lot more than just The King of the Ring by match’s end.
The King of the Ring insulted The Big Dog’s “bark” before revealing that Reigns had yet to arrive to the building, but Corbin promised to make Roman and the WWE Universe bend the knee to their King whenever The Big Dog showed up.
Reigns battled through it as best he could, but when Ziggler inserted himself into the ring, prompting Reigns to vanquish him with a Spear, The King of the Ring took advantage of the situation by catching The Big Dog with an emphatic End of Days for a controversial victory in Manchester.
Also, Tyson Fury and Braun Strowman came face-to-face yet again in a WWE ring, this time with a potentially even more shocking conclusion. Fury was less than pleased after Strowman, who was still steamed after his count-out defeat at WWE Crown Jewel, dropped The Gypsy King with a Running Powerslam after the contest had concluded.
In a shocking turn though, Tyson simply told Braun ‘thank you’ for the fight in Saudi Arabia and then suggested that they should become a tag team if they were ever again to compete in the ring together.
