Matt Riddle made his SmackDown debut a couple of weeks ago, and has already angered some of the established superstars on the roster. During tonight’s episode, Baron Corbin made his down to the ring during a segment with Riddle, and set in motion a match for Riddle to take on John Morrison.

After coming into the ring and telling Riddle that he didn’t appreciate how Riddle had attacked him during Corbin’s loss to Jeff Hardy last week, Corbin then summoned Morrison to the ring to try and take down Riddle. Unfortunately for Morrison and Corbin, Riddle came away with the win, avoiding interference from both Miz and Corbin to lock Morrison in a modified prawn clutch for the win. Following the win, Riddle began backing up the ramp, but was attacked from behind by AJ Styles, who had surprisingly lost to Riddle two weeks ago. Luckily for Riddle, Gulak – who is set to take on Styles tonight – came out to save the day, allowing Riddle to run off.
