“Just because you won King of the Ring, it doesn’t actually make you a king” Rock, also known as “The People’s Champ,” told Corbin, adding, “And it certainly sure as hell doesn’t make you want to walk around here dressed like a 35-year-old virgin hanging out at ComicCon!”

The Rock and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch then combined forces to defeat Corbin.

The Rock's return to WWE SmackDown is his first WWE appearance since 2016, when he appeared on the pay-per-view WrestleMania 32.
