In the opening match of Tuesday’s SmackDown Live, Finn Balor was the first Superstar moved from Raw to SmackDown as the Intercontinental Champion took on Ali in a title bout.
A great match to open the show, both competitors put on a showcase of what might be some of the best wrestling in WWE as SmackDown shifts to more of a wrestling product as it prepares to move to FOX on Fridays. Balor ended up winning his SmackDown debut reached out his hand as a show of respect for a hard-fought match.
Who else would be joining the blue brand as the night rolls on? Vince McMahon is set to announce the biggest acquisition in SmackDown history, and while Balor is a big name, it’s assumed he’s not that Superstar.
