WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: WWE CHAMPIONSHIP 'MATCH', THE ROCK, THERE IS A PPV ON SUNDAY, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-10-04 21:58:00

We are in Los Angeles, California and your announcers are Michael Cole and Corey Graves.

Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon make their way out to start things off.

Stephanie welcomes everyone to history.  She welcomes everyone to Fox.  Vince welcomes everyone to Smackdown.  

Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring.

Becky says it feels good to kick off the first episode of Friday Night Smackdown.  This show is in her blood.  This is where she smashed through glass ceilings and changed her game.  This is where your voices raised her up.  Becky says she might as well kick someone's ass.

Baron Corbin interrupts and he makes his way to the stage.  

Baron says the King is here as he walks down the ramp.  Baron asks Becky if she is listening and everyone knows that the King should be starting things off.  Do you think you are the man?

Becky tells Baron to take one more step and we will find out.

Baron enters the ring and then the Rock's music plays.

The Rock makes his way to the ring.  

The Rock has a mic and he says many many moons ago, the Rock uttered a phrase to some jabroni that changed the WWE Landscape forever.  He said he would lay the smack down.  Smackdown has become a show and in front of the MILLIONS of the Rock's fans, the Rock came into the People's ring and you look like a broke ass Burger King on crack.  We are all here in front of the millions . . . with the Man and Cracky to hear the Rock say

FINALLY . . . THE ROCK HAS COME BACK . . . 

HOME.

Baron interrupts The Rock.  He says he needs to make a correction.  This is not the Rock's home.  You are no longer the Great One.  You are looking at the Great One and the most electrifying King in Sports Entertainment.  The King says, know you roles and your shut your mouth.

Rock asks Becky if he can take this.  Rock says winning King of the Ring doesn't make you a king and doesn't make you look like a 35 year old virgin walking around ComiCon.  Becky is the man but you don't see her walking around with a pair of testicles. 

Becky says if she did, they would be bigger than Baron's.

Baron says his testicles are perfectly adequate.  Baron says he will dress however he wants and do whatever he wants because he is superior.  There is only one king in this city and it is not Lebron James.

Rock tells Baron he is superior to him and Becky, and the people in the building, and superior to his man Lebron.  

Becky tells Baron it does not matter what you think.

Rock mentions what Baron has done.  He says that Baron is a badass.  Becky asks Rock if he is trying to say that Baron is a super tough dude.  Rock says this is an inclusive show and he engages the people.  Since you are a super tough dude, the people will be chanting what they think of you when they see you . . . STD.

Becky says that will stick with you for life.  Rock says everyone will be chanting STD for you.  Rock says he can see something in Baron's eyes.  You are getting angry.  That is what happens when you insult the man, when you insult the people, and when you insult the Rock.

Becky takes off her jacket and Baron backs up and he puts down his crown and robe.  Becky with a punch and Rock with more punches.  Becky with a twisting leg drop and the Rock with the People's Elbow.  Becky with a kick that sends Baron into Rock for a Rock Bottom.

Rock with an IF YOU SMELL what the Rock is cooking.
