New matches were added to the WrestleMania 38 map during the March 4 edition of Friday Night SmackDown.
WrestleMania 38 is less than a month away, and the March 4 edition of Friday Night SmackDown added two new matches to the map.
The show began with Sami Zayn defending his newly won Intercontinental Championship against Ricochet. Zayn got distracted when the donkey The theme song hit the arena’s sound system and his opponent Johnny Knoxville walked down the ramp and stood on the ring apron. As Zayn was about to strike, Knoxville ducked, allowing Ricochet to take the win and the title.
An enraged Zayn wreaked havoc backstage before facing the camera and giving Knoxville a WrestleMania challenge. Later that night Knoxville accepted and the match is on.
That very night, SmackDown commentator Pat McAfee found out who his WrestleMania opponent would be after WWE Chairman Vince McMahon offered him a match during his interview on The Pat McAfee Show. Austin Theory walked down the ramp, verbally ran down McAfee and revealed that he is his opponent. Theory then punched McAfee in the face before retiring backstage.
Here are the confirmed matches for WrestleMania 38 following this latest episode of SmackDown.
