Reigns vs. Riddle WWE Universal title match set for next week's SmackDown

Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss will also face off on next week's show.

Riddle will face Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship on next week's SmackDown. 

Riddle defeated Sami Zayn in the main event of this week's SmackDown episode, with the stipulation that he would earn the shot at Reigns with a win, but would be banned from SmackDown with a loss. Riddle pinned Zayn with an RKO, then fought off an attack from The Usos after the match. 

Next week's title defense will be the first for Reigns on television since he unified the WWE and Universal Championships at WrestleMania 38.

Also announced for next week, Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss in a "Last Laugh" match, plus Max Dupri will unveil his first Maximum Male Models client. Dupri's reveal was originally announced for this week, but a storyline reason of "travel difficulties in Europe" was given for the postponement. 

Here is next week's lineup:

  • Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Riddle
  • Last Laugh match: Happy Corbin vs. Madcap Moss
