WWE has released this week’s quick hits preview for WWE SmackDown. You can view them along with some excerpts below to get ready for tonight’s episode as we gear up for The Undertaker’s return to SmackDown
Of course, eWrestlingNews will have all of the blue brand coverage tonight beginning at 8 P.M. Eastern. Now, onto the WWE SmackDown Preview:
King Corbin ready for his coronation
All hail King Corbin!
Baron Corbin remained confident throughout the King of the Ring tournament, foreshadowing his eventual reign by donning the crown after winning each of his matchups. On SmackDown LIVE, it becomes official, as the coronation of Baron Corbin takes place following his defeat of the underdog challenger Chad Gable.
Will Corbin begin his rule with a modest celebration, or will The Lone Wolf deliver the pomp and circumstance fit for true royalty?
Shane McMahon to address the firing of Kevin Owens
With Elias forced to withdraw due to injury, Shane McMahon stepped up to face Chad Gable in the King of the Ring Semifinals. With Shane-O-Mac’s promise of lifting Kevin Owens’ $100,000 fine, KO accepted McMahon’s proposal to assume the role as Special Guest Referee for the match.
Despite Owens’ audible to a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match following an early Gable roll-up, “The Best in the World” couldn’t overcome a vicious Ankle Lock and tapped out. Following the match, a furious McMahon blindsided Owens and shockingly fired the former Universal Champion.
Will McMahon rescind his decision and give Owens another shot at supporting his family? Or have we finally reached the end of the road for KO?
