The Rock
has finally returned to
SmackDown
!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
 treated his millions—and
millions—of fans to a special appearance on WWE SmackDown as the
show made its historic debut on the Fox Network, and it was
almost like he’d never left.

As WWE Raw Women’s Champion
Becky “The Man” Lynch
 attempted to start SmackDown’s 20th
anniversary with a speech, she was interrupted by King Baron
Corbin. The two had a little verbal back-and-forth before the most
electrifying man in sports entertainment came out to a raucous
cheer from the Los Angeles crowd.

King Corbin, as usual, was on his high throne—figuratively
speaking—before The Rock and The Man teamed up to issue a verbal
beating on him.

Lynch also channeled her inner Rock for a brief second, as seen
in this video: 

Does King @BaronCorbinWWE
think he is superior than @KingJames?

After the verbal beating was finished, The People’s Champ and
The Man teamed up to give Corbin a physical smack down that ended
with a Rock Bottom and the most electrifying move in all of sports
entertainment—the People’s Elbow.

The Rock seemed to enjoy his appearance on the show he helped
launch into the limelight. He tweeted some kind words of Lynch, and
even a few for Corbin, throughout the weekend.

I know where to find you,
champ.

As if that opening wasn’t enough, the action on SmackDown only
got wilder as the night went on. Heavyweight boxer
Tyson Fury
sat ringside during the event and traded a few words
and taunts with Bruan Strowman during the “Monster Among Men’s”
eight-man tag match. After Strowman’s team won, Fury attempted to
charge the ring, but was held back by security. 

ARE YOU SERIOUS?!@Tyson_Fury
has jumped out of the crowd and wants a piece of @BraunStrowman

And in one final shock,
Brock Lesnar
 was greeted by a familiar face after
he annihilated Kofi Kingston in mere seconds to win the WWE
Championship—Cain
Velasquez
. Yup, the same guy who defeated Lesnar for the UFC
Heavyweight Championship now apparently wants to take on “The
Beast” in the WWE. 

WHAT?!?!@cainmma is
HERE and he is getting a piece of the NEW

Velasquez, who was accompanied to the ring by Rey Mysterio, is
known for his work in the Octagon, but he’s no stranger to the
squared circle, either. He’s wrestled in Lucha Libre AAA
Worldwide and reportedly trained in the WWE Performance Center in
2018. 

SmackDown came to the Fox Network with quite a bang, and it’ll
be interesting to see what else it has in store for its new
home.
