After last nights edition of Smackdown, WWE taped their latest episode of Talking Smack. The show featured Finn Balor, an appearance from Bianca Belair, as well as a visit from Jimmy and Jey Uso.
Kevin Patrick welcomes everyone to the show, and reminds the viewers that we’re just one day away from Money In The Bank. Kevin is joined by Matt Camp in the studio, and the show has a completely new look. Kevin and Matt cover a few of the highlights from Smackdown, including the return of Finn Balor, and Bianca Belair successfully defending her title against Carmella. Kevin throws things over to Kayla Braxton in Houston, who is with the first guest.
Kayla begins by asking Bianca how it was to be in front of the fans, and Belair tells Kayla “tonight was amazing. Just being out there in front of the fans again was genuinely like homecoming night. I really wanted to celebrate with them. It was amazing.” Kayla talks about Belair’s successful title defense, and brings up a few Twitter comments Carmella had after the match. Bianca says “typical Carmella. People go on Twitter when they get bothered, but all I can say is if she wants a rematch, let’s do it again next week.” Kayla wonders if Bianca really means that, and Belair says “all I’m saying is she better be careful what she wishes for.” Kayla thanks Bianca for her time, and tosses it back over to Kevin in the studio.

Finn does have a message, and he tells the fans “I’m eternally grateful for the support throughout the pandemic, buckle your seatbelts, and get ready for the ride.” Kayla thanks Finn for stopping by, and Talking Smack returns to the studio.

Tomorrow it’s The Uso’s versus The Mysterio’s. We know what we doing. Rey is the best luchadore to ever do it.” Jey chimes in, and adds “but we’re the best tag team to ever do it. On Sunday, we make the family proud. On Sunday, the family gonna be draped in gold. On Sunday… seven time champs.” Kayla quickly wraps up the interview, and sends it back over to Matt one last time.
