As the final stop before the WWE Network special, WWE Roadblock, WWE Smackdown saw a huge tag team match which gave the Lunatic fringe one hell of a momentum before heading towards the championship match against Triple H. (WWE Smackdown results from courtesy wwe.com)
WWE Smackdown kicked off with the Miz TV with the special guests Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, bitter rivals from their starting days. After Sami Zayn talked about his turbulent past with Kevin Owens, the “A-lister” called out KO to offer his side to the story. Zayn desired to fight for the Intercontinental title against Owens at Wrestlemania. The Prizefighter obviously walked away backing down from the challenge but Neville showed up expressing his desire to be the IC title holder as well. The insulted show host attacked Zayn from behind which set up for an impromptu tag match up.
Sami Zayn and Neville vs. Kevin Owens and The Miz
KO initially was interested in getting into the match and beat down his former buddy Zayn in the tag match. The Prizefighter was dying to get his hands on a red-hot Zayn. But, later he changed his mind and decided to walk away from the contest and left Miz alone in the ring. Zayn delivered a Helluva Kick to finish him off.
Brie Bella vs. Summer Rae
After having an upset loss on RAW, Brie, this time, overcame Summer Rae on WWE Smackdown, despite Lana’s presence in the commentary. She took help of her husband’s pendant move of YES lock to force Summer tap out. After the match, Lana attacked Brie from behind and hit her with Brie’s own move of Bella Buster.
Y2AJ destroys in flames
Just three days after the “trifecta of codebreaker” attack to the WWE’s hot favorite superstar the ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla addressed the WWE universe to describe his actions on Smackdown. Focusing the bitterness towards the Universe he accused each one of them of disrespecting him. Jericho did not stop with that only as he burnt down “Y2AJ” written t-shirt in the ring to officially let us know that their tag team is over and promised that, he will be responsible for destroying the career of The Phenomenal One.
Sheamus and King Barrett vs. The Lucha Dragons
The League of Nations is on the hunt for the tag team titles as they continue to be on the winning streak for weeks. On Thursday night’s hottest show, Rusev’s interference set up King Barrett to hit with a British Bull-hammer to pick up the victory. The two will challenge the New Day for the tag titles on Saturday. Will they be able to win it?
Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler & The Usos def. The Wyatt Family
SmackDown’s huge 8-Man Tag Team main event had no shortage of action as Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler & The Usos took the fight to The Wyatt Family with an Uso Crazy attack. With the Wyatts and the Lunatic Fringe involved in the contest you always expect things to get chaotic. That happened exactly when Dean’s attempt to pin Eric Rowan got cut by Luke Harper. Eventually, after the Wyatts’ Black Sheep Strowman missed a spear in the corner, the unstable Ambrose nailed Dirty Deeds on the monstrous Rowan to pick up the pin. Triple H should be watching as Dean Ambrose was standing tall on WWE Smackdown heading towards the championship match on Saturday.
