Riddle To Challenge For WWE Universal Title On 6/17 SmackDown

Plus Madcap Moss faces Happy Corbin once more

The WWE Universal title will be on the line on next week's edition of SmackDown, as Roman Reigns defends his title against Riddle.

Riddle earned the shot with a win over Sami Zayn on Friday night, pinning Zayn following an RKO. Had Riddle lost, he'd have been banished from SmackDown.

The match will be Reigns' first title defense since unifying the WWE and Universal titles at WrestleMania 38 on April 3.

Also announced for next week's card is a "Last Laugh" match between Madcap Moss and Happy Corbin. Moss defeated Corbin in a No Holds Barred match this past Sunday.

In addition, Max Dupri will reveal the first client of his Maximum Male Models group. The unveiling was supposed to take place on Friday's show, but was postponed in storyline due to some sort of travel issues.

The current card for the June 17 edition of SmackDown, taking place at the Target Center in Minneapolis, includes the following:

* WWE Universal: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Riddle

* Last Laugh match: Happy Corbin vs. Madcap Moss

* Plus, the reveal of the first Maximum Male Models client
