WWE Smackdown: 5 Must-See Moments

Brock Lesnar challenges Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns and the Bloodline kicked off Friday Nigth Smackdown in front of a red hot crowd at MSG. Within minutes, Brock Lesnar’s music hit as he head to the ring to the roar of the crowd. Lesnar accused Paul Heyman of withholding his Summerslam appearance from Reigns, which caused the Bloodline to leave the ring. Heyman attempted to suck up to Lesnar which caused Brock to life him on his shoulders for an F5. Reigns rushed back into the ring and attacked Lesnar, but Brock pushed him off and beat down the Usos. The crowd was hot from the start and it was one of the best WWE TV moments of the year.

Sami Zayn trolls MSG
Before the start of a massive 10-man tag, Sami Zayn got on the mic wearing a Knicks jersey. Zayn said he invited a man who knew how to win in NY to be in his corner before Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young came to the ring. Young was a standout during the Hawks series win over the Knicks earlier this year, with the crowd loudly booing him in the process. The tag match was fun, but Young’s appearance took the headlines.
