Complete results from the June 3, 2022 episode of WWE SmackDown.
On the program for this June 3, 2022 episode of WWE SmackDown Madcap Moss is back, a new challenger for Ronda Rousey and a main event tag team championship match.
McIntyre’s Summer Project
The New Days open this episode and welcome Drew McIntyre who after blackmailing Big E’s name to the audience, challenges Roman Reigns to a WWE Championship match and Universal to WWE Clash of Champions. No time to spread out on this challenge launched, McIntyre continues with attempts at salacious jokes and calls himself “Big D”.
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods stop him, and give him a gift to thank him for leading them to victory last week against the Brawling Brutes: Shorts with the name “Big D” on them—his birthday being next Monday (6 June).
The Brawling Brutes interrupt the scene. Sheamus explains that they were at a disadvantage because they didn’t expect the McIntyre surprise, they weren’t ready — We’ve heard that excuse before, haven’t we Seth Rollins? Butch doesn’t want to talk and rushes into the ring to attack, but McIntyre quickly stops him. When the pub returns, there will be a match again.
The Brawling Brutes beat Drew McIntyre & The New Day by pinfall with Butch’s Bitter End on Xavier Woods.
Riddle and Shinsuke Nakamura are in an interview, Riddle explains that their team is only in their beginnings but tonight they intend to win the tag team titles and avenge Randy Orton. Michael Cole hints that Randy Orton may no longer wrestle.
Max Dupri announces to Adam Pearce that he has found his first client, whom he will reveal next week. We also learn that a Six Pack will take place tonight to determine Ronda Rousey’s challenger.
Jinder Mahal beat Humberto by pinfall with a roll up, Shanky distracted the action by dancing at ringside. The public loves dancing, Samantha Irvin too apparently.
Natalya as Ronda Rousey’s challenger
Ronda Rousey takes her place at the commentary table for the 6-pack. Shotzi walks in but not Aliyah who got locked up (along with the cameraman) in the locker room too after last week.
Natalya defeated Raquel Rodriguez, Shotzi, Aliyah, Shayna Baszler and Xia Li by pinfall after a powerbomb by Rodriguez on Shotzi which Natalya took advantage of to pin while Rodriguez had just suffered the Kirifuda Clutch from Baszler.
Ronda Rousey finds Natalya in the ring. No question of playing the friendship card like in the good old days, they are rivals and will face each other soon. The match is not for Hell In A Cell.
A video clip of Lacey Evans is broadcast, here she is really back on SmackDown after a very short stint on RAW.
The new Madcap Moss
Madcap Moss is back. He gets out of the ambulance—because in the WWE world the ambulance takes you back to where they picked you up when you were hurt—and walks to the ring. Moss no longer has suspenders, he wears a classic wrestling outfit and looks a little more physically impressive this way.
He calls Corbin to join him in the ring to make him pay for the attack with the trophy and the chair after explaining that it was the end of former Madcap Moss. No more limits, no more jokes, he’s not here to laugh anymore.
Corbin enters, and thinks that Moss wants to recover his place by his side but it will not be, Corbin refuses it to him. Moss makes it clear to him that he came to fight, but Corbin refuses. Bad luck, Adam Pearce comes to announce that he cannot refuse and that the match takes place immediately.
Happy Corbin defeated Madcap Moss by disqualification after Moss hit him with a chair.
After the match Moss attacked Corbin with a chair in front of a very happy audience and visibly very behind Madcap Moss. Referees ended up stopping Moss under the boos of the public.
Backstage at commercial return Adam Pearce tells Corbin he will face Madcap Moss again, but this time it will be at WWE Hell In A Cell 2022 and in a match No Holds Barred.
We are told through promos from both wrestlers that Ricochet will defend the Intercontinental title against Gunther next week on SmackDown.

DJ Sami Zayn on the sound system
The Usos then Riddle and Nakamura come in for the next game. The Unified WWE Tag Team Titles are on the line in this main event. Michael Cole repeats that Randy Orton may never wrestle again. This fad is strange.
The Usos defeated Riddle and Shinsuke Nakamura by pinfall with a splash from Jey Uso on Riddle to retain the tag team titles.
Shinsuke Nakamura had to leave the match after injuring his knee (it’s part of the storyline) and Sami Zayn started the distraction from the backstage by launching Roman Reigns’ theme song himself, which is obviously not came. The distraction still worked.
Sami Zayn comes to join the Usos to celebrate their victory and threatens to fight with Riddle who for his part screams that the story is not over. They will meet again.
A fairly simple episode of WWE SmackDown, we are told of championship matches that will not take place at WWE Hell In A Cell 2022 but next week. Only Happy Corbin and Madcap Moss will participate in SmackDown this Sunday.
