Friday Night SmackDown Quick Recap for June 17, 2022

Matches Tonight: Four (approx. 33 minutes)
  • Last Laugh Match: Madcap Moss vs Happy Corbin. Moss won and is now 3-0 against Corbin. After the match, per the special stupidlation, Moss "laughed" Corbin out of the arena (or rather, laughed as he left the ringside area). 8:22-8:32pm EST.
  • Tag Team Match: the New Day vs Jinder Mahal & Shanky. The New Day won after Shanky's dancing and Jinder's displeasure at Shanky's dancing cost them yet another match. 8:50-8:53pm EST.
  • Money in the Bank Qualifying Match: Raquel Rodriguez vs Shayna Baszler. Raquel won the short match. 9:14-9:18pm EST.
  • Undisputed WWE Championship Match: Roman Reigns(c) vs Riddle. Special Stipulation: If Riddle fails to capture the gold, he's banned from challenging for Roman for the title. As expected, Roman Reigns retained and Riddle can not challenge him again. 9:36-9:52pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Corporate Address: In light of this week's breaking news regarding allegations of affairs and cover-ups, Vince McMahon addressed the WWE Universe. Vince came out, stated it was a pleasure to be in Minnesota for a cheap pop, welcomed us to SmackDown and left. That's it. All that "hype," unofficially of course. 8:02-8:04pm EST
  • Riddle: Riddle cut a pro-Orton promo, wishing him well in his upcoming surgery and stating he was dedicating tonight's title match to Orton. 8:10-8:14pm EST.
  • Maximum Male Models w/ Max Dupri: Introducing LA Knight's Max Dupri's first acquisition.....absolutely no-one, with Max claiming the "lighting" was too bad for his models to make their debut this week. Maybe next week.
  • See those big gaps in timestamps?: A lot of filler tonight, especially between Vince's ninety second-or-less promo and Riddle's promo (six minutes of nada).
  • Next Week on SmackDown: Shotzi vs Aliyah in a Money in the Bank qualifying match. The Viking Raiders return to SmackDown. More MitB madness.
  • Money in the Bank Match Added: WWE Official Adam Pearce added both Drew McIntyre & Sheamus to the Money in the Bank ladder match. The Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions the Usos vs the Street Profits. SmackDown Women's Champion Ronda Rouse vs Natalya. Raquel Gonzalez will join Lacey Evans, Alexa Bliss and Liv Morgan in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match.
  • Brock Lesnar is Back: Brock showed up after our main event and hit F5's on the Bloodline to end our program. 9:56-9:59pm EST.
