WWE debuted SmackDown on Fox last Friday night with a show that saw groundbreaking performances from wrestlers from both brands, with the debut of UFC veteran Cain Velasquez and the return of the great one – Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Velasquez running through Lesnar was a cherishing moment for the many fans in attendance, but the People’s Champ returning to join forces with The Man Becky Lynch in the opening segment of the show was the highlight of the night.

While there is no denying the magnetic appeal of The Rock, to say that the WWE Universe was thrilled to see ‘The Great One’ would be an understatement. The Rock, as he does, entertained the crowd at Staples Center from the get-go; from captivating the fans with his famous catchphrases to delivering the witty lines to insult the newly crowned King. Corbin, who has had enough of the embarrassment ultimately decided to trade jabs with Becky Lynch and The Rock only to fall victim to the People’s Elbow followed by a Rock Bottom.
