Find out who took home the SmackDown World Cup trophy as tonight’s WWE SmackDown (December 2) featured the final of the tournament.
With his Legado del Fantasma faction at ringside (including Zelina Vega on commentary,) Santos Escobar took on Ricochet in the final of the SmackDown World Cup tournament.
After some interference in the match, the stable was ejected from ringside including Vega who was given the boot, finally evening the odds.
As the fight went on, both competitors got the opportunity to showcase impressive offense as they battled for the SmackDown World Cup.
With massive back and forths and near falls in the final third, it was anybody’s cup to win as the excellence from both was genuinely impressive.
In the end, it was finally Ricochet who was able to pull out the win after hitting a 630 Splash off of the top rope onto Santos Escobar.
As a result of the win, Ricochet has earned an Intercontinental Title shot against GUNTHER.
Elsewhere on tonight’s edition of SmackDown, the first WWE star declared that they were entering the Royal Rumble 2023.
