Intercontinental Title Match, Lacey Evans' Return Set For 6/10 WWE SmackDown

Plus Max Dupri reveals his first client

An Intercontinental title match and several other segments have been announced for next Friday night's episode of WWE SmackDown.

For the title bout, Intercontinental champion Ricochet will put his belt on the line against Gunther. On last week's SmackDown, Gunther teamed with Ludwig Kaiser to defeat Ricochet and Drew Gulak.

This will be Ricochet's first televised defense of the IC title since April 22, where he defeated Shanky.

Lacey Evans will also finally return to action, facing a to-be-announced opponent. The recently-returned Evans was quietly moved from the Raw brand back to SmackDown this week.

Also on next week's program, Max Dupri will reveal the first client of his agency, Maximum Male Models. In untelevised match segments prior to his official SmackDown debut, Dupri had appeared alongside the likes of Mace and Mansoor, but neither has associated with him in official storyline as of yet.

The current card for the June 10 edition of WWE SmackDown, taking place at Raising Canes River Center Arena in Baton Rouge, LA, is as follows:

* WWE Intercontinental: Ricochet (c) vs. Gunther

* Lacey Evans vs. TBD

* Max Dupri reveals first Maximum Male Models signing
