Madcap Moss Wins Battle Royale on WrestleMania SmackDown

WrestleMania SmackDown begins with Andre the Giant Battle Royal in 2022. In a field filled with famous champions, an unexpected artist won the match. Madcap Moss overcame other competitors by eventually eliminating US Champion Finn Balor.

Moss outlasted several other WWE stars, including Balor, Dolph Ziggler, Shanky, Jinder Mahal, Apollo Crews, and Damian Priest. Standing in front of Stand & Delivery, veteran NXT Tommaso Ciampa also participate in the match.

The final opponents include Ciampa, Ziggler, Robert Roode, Balor and Moss. Moss prevented elimination a few times when Happy Corbin appeared briefly in the early game. Both his fear of elimination came at the hands of Ciampa.

Moss also gave fans in Dallas one of his signature jokes after his big win. They booed him as usual. The crowd was clearly behind Balor as he was the most child-faced in the match.

What does victory for Moss mean after WrestleMania?

While lately he’s been a punching bag because Drew McIntyre, victory could mean that Moss gets a little boost. He showed his mettle in multiple matches against McIntyre. However, Corbin used Moss as a sacrificial pawn, so the duo will likely part ways this year.

However, if Corbin and Moss stick together, and if a babyface still holds the Intercontinental Team Championship or SmackDown Tag after WrestleMania, Happy Folks could pursue those titles. Since Ciampa almost eliminated Moss twice, perhaps that is a sign that Ciampa will join SmackDown after Stand & Deliver.

Things could change after WrestleMania over the weekend, so everything is on the table in terms of future angles. While he wasn’t expected to win, Moss has appeared consistently on SmackDown over the past year. He delivered when he got the chance, at least in games.

However, jokes can take more work.

Guess who signed the long-term IMPACT Wrestling contract? More details this.
