Smackdown came live last night with several questions in mind from Summerslam. We were eager to hear from AJ Styles and Becky Lynch in their respective segments. The tag team championships were on the line. Also, two bitter rivals received the first shot to beat up each other in a match. Here are how all of those went by from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The Miz and Maryse appeared in the arena to open Smackdown Live. They continuously mocked Daniel Bryan for the Summerslam loss and hinting his retirement. But an enraged Daniel Bryan made his way to the ring. Brie Bella also headed to the ring slapping Miz to the face. They announce a mixed tag team match at Hell in a Cell where Daniel & Brie will team up against Miz & Maryse.
Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton was the opening contest of Smackdown. Hardy was in firm control of the match hitting a Twist of Fate. But Orton put his fingers on Hardy’s ear-piercing hole. An angry Hardy low-blowed Orton to disqualify the match. A fight broke out between these two that ended with a Swanton Bomb from Hardy off a box!
Naomi came back on Smackdown TV after a long time. She took on against Peyton Royce. Billie Kay was there to provide the distraction. But Naomi pulled her off the ring sending face-first into the mat. Peyton sent Naomi into the ring post and hit the Fisherman Suplex to get the win.
Becky Lynch addressed her actions from Summerslam turning heel on the audience. She blamed each of the fans for not supporting her. Rather they cheered Charlotte Flair for winning the title. Smackdown women’s champion came out and a brawl broke out outside the ring. Women’s division members ran out to separate these two.
Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega vs. Rusev & Lana took place for a Summerslam rematch. Vega failed to get pinfall after hitting a modified 619. Thereafter, Rusev kicked out of a double knee. Almas tried to use a chair but Aiden English pulled it off from him. Rusev hit a kick and locked the Accolade for the win.
Renee Young conducted an interview with AJ Styles on the ramp. The WWE Champion was in no mood to apologize after getting disqualified at Summerslam. He also did not want to hear his family’s name from Samoa Joe’s mouth. But Joe attacked him from behind and locked in the Coquina Clutch to choke him down. He also took Wendy Styles’ name to finish the segment.
The tag team championship match was the main event of Smackdown Live. It was a brutal match that witnessed Harper throwing a chair to Kofi. The Bludgeons also put him through a ladder with a power-bomb. But he kicked out to continue the match. Later, he hit Harper with a Mallet and Woods connected a flying elbow through the table to get the pinfall. The New Day won the Smackdown tag titles to end this week’s show.
