This week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown was certainly a special one as it took place in front of a live audience, for the first time in well over a year.

The show was full of great matches and memorable moments as fans simply have an amazing time. The show ended with Seth Rollins sitting atop a ladder while holding the Money in the Bank briefcase.

After the show went off the air, an impromptu battle royal took place and included the likes of Dolph Ziggler, Big E, Robert Roode, Apollo Crews, Commander Azeez, Finn Balor, King Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro.

Now it seems former Retribution member Shane Thorne also worked the impromptu battle royal match. Thorne was seen wearing new gear and appeared to have been a babyface.


This didn’t count as a match, but any chance to get involved is one that Shane Thorne is not going to pass up.

Reckoning and Slapjack had their names changed back to Mia Yim and Shane Thorne recently. It is also to be noted that the WWE roster still lists Reckoning and Slapjack as Superstars on Monday Night RAW and the changes have yet to be reflected on official roster pages for Yim and Thorne. We will have to wait and see what the company will have planned for Shane Thorne now that he is back.
