The Rock, Becky Lynch, and King Corbin In-Ring Segment 

Becky says that 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, so thank you. It’s time to kick someone’s ass. King Corbin walks down to the ring. The King is here. Everyone knows that Corbin should be starting this show. Is Becky still the man? Take one more step and we will find out. King Corbin gets interrupted by The Rock.

Many many moons ago, The Rock uttered a phrase to some jabroni that changed the WWE Landscape forever. He would lay the smack down. Smackdown has become a word in the dictionary. Over 1,000 episodes in front of the millions of Rock fans, The Rock stands in the ring with The Man and a guy who looks like a broke ass Burger King on crack. Finally, The Rock has come back home. Corbin needs to make a correction. This is not The Rock’s home. He’s no longer The Great One. You’re looking at The Great One and the most electrifying King in Sports Entertainment. With that being said, know your role and shut your mouth. Can Rock take this for a second?

Winning King of the Ring doesn’t make you a king and doesn’t make you look like a 35 year old virgin hanging out at Comic-Con. Becky is the man, but you don’t see her walking around with a pair of testicles. If Becky did, they would be bigger than Corbin’s. Corbin says that his testicles are perfectly adequate. He will dress however he wants and do whatever he wants because he’s superior to all of you. There’s only one king in this city and it’s sure as hell is not LeBron James. Becky tells Corbin that it doesn’t matter what he thinks. Rock goes over Corbin’s resume. He’s a badass. Is Rock calling Corbin a super tough dude?

This is an inclusive show and he engages the people. Since Corbin is a super tough dude, the people will be chanting, STD. Becky says that will stick with Corbin for life. Rock can see something in Corbin’s eyes. He’s getting angry. That’s what happens when you insult the man, when you insult the people, and when you insult the Rock.
