After The Match: Imperium Strikes!
Once the match was over and the title change occured, NXT UK's Imperium hits the ring to attack until eventually Heavy Machinery runs down to try and even up the numbers game against WWE UK Champion WALTER, Fabian Aichner, Marcel Barthel and Alexander Wolfe. That wasn't enough, so eventually more SmackDown stars hit the ring to chase off the dominant NXT UK faction.
Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Ali & Shorty G
Next up inside the ring here at the Manchester Arena for SmackDown is a tag-team match pitting WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro against the duo of Ali and Shorty G.
This one is given a little bit of time to develop, and featured Sami Zayn still trying to get Daniel Bryan to join he and Nakamura's team.
Bryan simply watched the match from the entrance stage, despite the fact that Zayn invited him to watch the match from ringside. When all was said-and-done, the team of Cesaro and Nakamura got their hands raised.
Winners: Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura

Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin
The advertised featured match for this week's SmackDown, "The Big Dog" Roman Reigns vs. "King" Baron Corbin is up next. We've still got Tyson Fury's return and much more to go.

Tyson Fury & Braun Strowman Join Forces?
Finally, as advertised, lineal boxing heavyweight champion of the world, "The Gypsy King" Tyson Fury, makes his WWE return as he comes down to the ring for the final segment of the taping.
"The Gypsy King" talks about making his WWE debut with a win at WWE Crown Jewel and then calls his opponent from the show, "The Monster Amog Men" Braun Strowman, to join him in the ring.
Strowman makes his way out and Fury tells him he wants to form a tag-team with him. They end up getting confronted by The B-Team -- Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel.
Dallas and Axel come out and get in Strowman and Fury's face, leading to a brawl that saw "The Monster Among Men" and "The Gypsy King" take out the smaller opposition. They pose together in the ring after clearing house to end the show.
