The era of Gunther is here as the Austrian beast won the intercontinental championship over Ricochet last week:
In the championship match tonight there is one major stipulation for Riddle. If he loses, he cannot challenge Reigns while he is still the champion. Not ever, but just while Reigns holds the title putting even more pressure on the former tag-team champion.
This match was originally going to be on the Money in the Bank pay-per-view but everything with that show had to be reassembled like a shook-up snow globe.
The rest of the scene on Friday night should feature more build for the SmackDown women’s championship with Natalya challenging Ronda Rousey at Money in the Bank and more in the vacant WWE women’s tag-team championships.
Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss will battle in a last-laugh match, which will be a match but there are no clear rules or guidelines for it right now.
The rest of SmackDown should be centered around the build for Money in the Bank, which will take place on July 2, just over two weeks away.
As always, expect the unexpected on WWE Friday Night SmackDown!
