WWE Smackdown was taped this week from Manchester, New Hampshire. It kicked off with Roman Reigns calling on his phenomenal challenger AJ Styles to admit the “truth” that he is advising Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Instead, he got the Miz with his lovely wife Maryse. A confrontation happened between the Intercontinental champion and the WWE world heavyweight champion Roman Reigns. The Miz was still seething from his last week’s encounter with AJ Styles. The Awesome One also managed to insult WWE’s top titleholder and ate a punch to get packed from the ring. This set up the main event for the night between the two of them. (WWE Smackdown results from wwe.com)
United States Champion Kalisto, Sami Zayn & Cesaro def. Sheamus, Rusev & Alberto Del Rio
It was a classic team heel vs. team face battle all in all which saw the faces win the contest after the heels started fighting against each other and leave the arena one after another. It has Rusev who tagged himself first into the match which prompted Del Rio to leave the rest of the two leaving in between the match. The Bulgarian Brute followed suit after Sheamus seemingly inadvertently hit him with a right forearm off the top rope. The Irishman was left alone in the ring and the faces started an all over mugging on him which left him with no option but to leave the contest.
