Former WWE and pro wrestling veteran referee Jimmy Korderas took to an episode of his Reffin’ Rant to talk about a variety of topics such as how the finals of the SmackDown World Cup between Ricochet and Santos Escobar should have been the main event of a bigger show on FOX, instead of FS1 as well as how they could have had a bigger audience and a platform of elevating these two WWE Superstars.
Jimmy Korderas said:
“I know a lot of people are questioning the finals of the World Cup tournament on Smackdown this week in where it was placed, but I think there was a bigger miss here.” “I know some people are saying, ‘That shouldn’t have been the main event on Smackdown this past Friday. You know, Santos Escobar vs. Ricochet, the names aren’t big enough stars to main event a big-time show like Smackdown.’ And that’s the reason they put them on last this week is because it was on FS1.”
“I think there was a bigger miss here. That should have been a main event match when Smackdown aired on… Fox Network. It would have had a bigger audience and maybe some more people would have gravitated towards these two young stars. And that’s the idea of elevating two new stars. So in front of a bigger audience, I think that match would have better instead of on FS1.”
