WWE Smackdown begins with Vince McMahon’s music hits as he makes his way down the new stage set with his daughter Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie welcomes everyone to history, to Fox. Vince welcomes everyone to Friday Night Smackdown.
A new Friday Night Smackdown intro plays.
Pyro hits the stage and the fans are absolutely hyped for the start of what is truly a new era.
The WWE Raw women’s champion Becky Lynch walks down to the ring as her song fills the arena. Becky says it feels good to be kicking off the very first episode of Friday Night Smackdown. She says the show is in her blood, where she changed the game. Where they all used their voices to raise her up and she thanks the crowd.
Lynch says she wants to repay them by kicking someone’s ass. Baron Corbin’s music hits as the WWE 2019 King of the Ring winner walks out with a microphone in hand.
Corbin says the king is here. Corbin says everyone knows who should be starting the show off and it’s the king. He asks if she really thinks she is the man. Lynch tells him to take one more step and we’ll find out.
The Rock’s music hits and the crowd goes absolutely nuts. He takes off his jacket and walks down to the ring. He stands on the second rope, right arm in the air and the crowd continue to cheer. He fist pumps Becky Lynch and ignores Baron Corbin as he walks the opposite turnbuckle and salutes the crowd.
A loud “Rocky” chant fills the arena. The Rock says many moons ago, The Rock uttered a phrase to some jabroni which changed the landscape forever. The Rock said he was going to lay the Smackdown. But since then, the word Smackdown has become a show, over 1000 episodes in front of the millions of The Rock’s fans. The Rock, The Man and he calls Baron a broke ass Burger King on crack. The fans chant “Burger King”. The Rock says we are all here live on Fox in front of the millions as they, The Man and Cracky are waiting for The Rock to say “Finally, The Rock has come back…” The fans chant “Rocky” as he concludes by saying “Home”.
Baron interrupts The Rock to a chorus of boos. He says he needs to make a correction, this isn’t his home anymore. He’s no longer the great one. As a matter of fact, you are looking at the great one. At the most electrifying king in sports entertainment. And the king says know your roles and shut your mouths.
Rock tells Becky if he can take this one. Really quick, he has to ask Corbin. Just because you won King of the Ring, it doesn’t make you a king nor does it make you want to walk around looking like a 35 year old virgin at Comic Con. Becky Lynch is The Man. However, you don’t see her walking around holding a pair of testicles. Lynch says but if she did, it would be bigger than Corbin’s. He says his testicles are perfectly adequate. He’s the king, he will dress and do what he wants. He is superior to all of them and the way he sees it is this city only has one king and it sure as hell isn’t LeBron James.
The Rock says just so we are clear, Corbin thinks he is superior to them both or the fans? Is that what he thinks? Corbin is about to answer as Lynch tells him it doesn’t matter what he thinks. She and The Rock first pump. The Rock says he knows all about him, he’s legit. Won Money in the Bank, King of the Ring, he’s a badass. He is a super tough dude but this is an inclusive showm this is where The Rock engages the people. In 3 seconds, people will chant something everytime they will see him, STD as in Super Tough Dude. Lynch says that will stick to him for life as the fans chant STD.
Rock says they are live on Fox and The Rock sees that Corbin is angry but that’s what happens when you cone out and insult the man, insult the people and when you insult the jabroni eating, pie eating, tail training, eye brow raising, all the way from Japan, you are about to get your ass kicked by The Rock and the Man.
