SmackDown’s FOX premiere kicked off with The Man, a king and The Most Electrifying Man In Sports Entertainment.
After Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon welcomed SmackDown to a new era in the cold open, the opening segment saw Becky Lynch, Baron Corbin and The Rock engage in verbal fisticuffs. However, it was essentially a two-on-one beatdown from The Rock and Lynch to Corbin, both verbally and physically.
The segment concluded with The Rock and Lynch beating up Corbin, hitting the People’s Elbow and Rock Bottom on the 2019 King of the Ring winner.
