It was the last episode of Smackdown before WWE TLC, that takes place on December 4. The main show came to an end with Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles brawling at the backstage area. They were not finished when the cameras stopped rolling.

A dark match took place between them in the non-title capacity. The faces do win these types of matches and the same result was followed. Dean Ambrose picked up the victory after hitting Styles with a Dirty Deeds.

After Smackdown Live, the 205 Live premiered on WWE Network where the Cruiserweight championship was on the line. The champion Bryan Kendrick defended his title against Rich Swann.

Swann defeated the veteran to become the new Cruiserweight champion.

In the fall-out show, Alexa Bliss was all fired up to face the Smackdown women’s champion, Becky Lynch at TLC. It’ll now be a tables match.

Carmella was bruised after Nikki Bella attacked her on Smackdown Live. She was fuming over it and said she’s ready for Sunday’s No DQ match where anything goes.

Ziggler and Kalisto also seemed ready for Sunday heading into their respective matchups. Ziggler said he is done with The Miz and the feud will end when he wins back the IC title.

The Talking Smack show also took place on the WWE Network with the host Renee Young. Smackdown GM was not present there as the Miz replaced him. Ziggler was the first guest on the show as a heated confrontation brew out on the show.

Becky Lynch and AJ Styles were the next guests. Both looked pumped up and vowed to win their respective championship matches at the TLC PPV.
