Samoa Joe defeated Ali in the dark match that took place prior to Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown! Live TV tapings.
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley commented on Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown! Live broadcast. He praised Buddy Murphy for his recent matches. Foley said,
“Watching #SmackDown on DVR, so I’m a little late to the pardukey, but @WWE_Murphy is the real deal, isn’t he? Two great performances in a row is no fluke.”
