This week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown further built towards WrestleMania 38 and its various feuds heading into the event. Last-minute changes can happen at any time. It happened on this week’s show as well.

According to Fightful Select, Ridge Holland was supposed to do a promo during the show that addressed Big E’s injury, which took place last week. However, what fans got instead had his one-on-one match with Kofi Kingson, and the update about Big E via social media aired.

There was also a shift in direction regarding the six-man tag match between Drew McIntyre and The Viking Raiders against Happy Corbin, Jinder Mahal, and Shanky. It was said that Madcap Moss was originally scheduled for the match but Shanky was put in his place for some reason.

Roman Reigns & Usos vs. McIntyre, Boogs and Nakamura was slated for the dark main event as well. Michael Hayes was the producer for the match.
