John Morrison to face Big E on WWE SmackDown next week


John Morrison will be back in action on next week's episode of SmackDown.

WWE has announced that Morrison vs. Big E will take place on SmackDown next Friday. This is the first announced match for Morrison since he made his return to WWE.

Morrison's appearance on Miz TV kicked off tonight's SmackDown. Morrison said he was disappointed in the fans for turning against The Miz just because Miz had a bad day when he attacked Kofi Kingston after their match last week.

Kingston and Big E interrupted the Miz TV segment, and Miz mocked Kingston for how quickly he lost the WWE Championship to Brock Lesnar. Miz then faced Kingston in a match that started with Morrison and Big E both on commentary.

Morrison and Big E moved to ringside after Miz shoved Kingston into Big E. Miz got into it with Big E on the outside, Morrison hit a move where he jumped off the steps and laid out Big E, and Miz won with the Skull Crushing Finale after Kingston was distracted.

In storyline, Miz has been unraveling since his feud with Bray Wyatt.

The Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina is hosting next week's SmackDown. It will be the second-to-last episode of the show before the Royal Rumble.
