WWE SmackDown on FOX: The Rock returns & teams up with Becky Lynch to fend off Baron Corbin
"Finally, The Rock has come back... home!" Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson had helped elevate SmackDown as a top-tier show on WWE alongside RAW and hence, it came as no surprise that SmackDown on FOX's premiere episode will kickstart with The Great One. Becky Lynch was the first to come out and the applause for The Man was aplenty, but the RAW Women's Champion was quickly interrupted by The King of the Ring, Baron Corbin. However, without much further ado, The Brahma Bull was in full force while the crowd stood up with a big pop as "If you smell what The Rock is cookin," erupted on the speakers at the arena.
Dwayne was quick to target Baron, who tried his best to bully both The Rock and Becky, but to no avail. One of the funniest lines out of The Rock's mouth was how Corbin looked like a 35-year-old virgin at Comic-Con. The camaraderie between Johnson and Becky was a breath of fresh air as The Man took a page out of The Rock's iconic dialogues of 'It doesn't matter what you think!' against Corbin. Eventually, calling Baron a 'Super Tough Dude', Dwayne and Becky had the WWE Universe present at the arena chant 'STD!"
Corbin was then ambushed by the Most Electrifying Duo in Sports Entertainment, as Johnson and Lynch punched The King of the Ring in turns. Eventually, a leg drop by Becky followed by the People's Elbow and a Rock Botton sealed the fate for Baron. The segment ended with the crowd chanting, "Rocky! Rocky!" followed by The Great One and The Man posing together.
