Murphy vs. King Corbin rematch announced for WWE SmackDown


A rematch between Murphy and King Corbin has been announced for next week’s SmackDown.

Commercials airing during football games airing on Fox today confirmed the match would take place next week.On Friday, Corbin wrestled Murphy in an impromptu match after Corbin’s original opponent, Otis, was taken out by Jey Uso with a steel chair. Corbin later confronted Murphy, leading to their match.

The Mysterio family constantly interfered in the match, helping Murphy and impeding Corbin every time he was in control. The finish had Murphy pin Corbin after Dominik Mysterio took Corbin’s foot off the bottom rope following a knee strike by Murphy.

After the match, a livid Corbin told Murphy he wanted another match, and promised that he would be prepared the next time he and Murphy faced one another.

The commercial also said that Kevin Owens would continue his feud with Roman Reigns. This follows an angle that took place at the end of SmackDown where Owens laid out Jey Uso, challenging his cousin Roman Reigns to do something about it.
