Friday Night SmackDown results: Roman Reigns and King Corbin clash before Royal Rumble match as Bobby Roode makes shock return

It was another night of pulsating action and shock returns as SmackDown continued in explosive fashion on its exclusive new home in the UK and Ireland.

WWE SmackDown continued in style on its exclusive new home in the UK and Ireland with an action-packed show full of pulsating matches and shock returns.

The main event between The Usos and King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler descended into chaos as Robert Roode made a shock return at the expense of Roman Reigns.

Earlier in the night, John Morrison appeared as The Miz’s guest on ‘Miz TV’ after he stunned the WWE universe with his return last week.

Braun Strowman defeated Shinsuke Nakamura in a non-title fight to take a step closer to The King of Strong Style’s Intercontinental Title and Mandy Rose, with the help of Otis, beat Alexa Bliss.

Elsewhere, Daniel Bryan was subject to Bray Wyatt’s mind games once again ahead of their Royal Rumble match.

Match results

The Miz beat Kofi Kingston

With Big E and John Morrison providing guest commentary, The Miz beat Kofi Kingston in a rematch from last week’s Friday Night SmackDown.

During the match, JoMo cannonballed from the steel steps to take out Big E and with Kingston distracted, Miz connected with a Skull-Crushing Finale for the win.

Mandy Rose beat Alexa Bliss

God’s Greatest Creation defeated Bliss on Friday Night SmackDown as both Nikki Cross and Sonya Deville watched from ringside.

Otis arrived during the match with the cake that Mandy gave him earlier in the evening, distracting The Goddess enough for Mandy to pin Bliss and claim the victory.

Braun Strowman beat Shinsuke Nakamura

With his sights set on Nakamura’s Intercontinental Title, The Monster Among Men defeated The King of Strong Style despite Sami Zayn and Cesaro’s best efforts.

Strowman celebrated with the Intercontinental Title before Zayn quickly ran into the ring to snatch it from him.

King Corbin and Dolph Ziggler beat The Usos via disqualification

The Usos were disqualified from the tag team main-event when Reigns speared Corbin outside the ring after being taunted by the 2019 King of the Ring.

With Reigns ready to powerbomb Corbin, Roode made a shocking return, which led to Corbin, Ziggler and Roode attacking Reigns, leaving him buried under the announce table.
