Smackdown was able to heat up the Summerslam PPV for one final time. It was the go-home edition of the show that consisted of multiple confrontations. There was a first-time matchup on the show hyping up the upcoming mixed tag team match. Also, a six-man tag team melee broke out during the show. Here are the results from the show that took place at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Greenville, South Carolina.
Smackdown kicked off with a face-off featuring Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Carmella. The champion went right after Becky as expected. She verbally attacked her for being irrelevant on the show. At Summerslam, she does not stand a chance. Charlotte, in turn, blasted her for being a Diva in the women’s era.
Smackdown GM Paige arrived on the scene and announced a tag team match
Charlotte and Becky Lynch had to team up against Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. Becky Lynch got the hot tag and gave an exploder suplex to Mandy. Sonya ate a kick to go outside the ring. Becky locked in the dis-arm-her on Mandy to pick up the win.
SAnitY took on against the New Day in a six-man tag team match. Kofi Kingston received a beatdown from Eric Young and Killian Dain for the most part of the match. But a top rope fly from him took down Young and Wolfe. Inside the ring, Woods tagged in Big E. They connected with the Up Up Down Down to pick up the win on Smackdown.
The Bludgeon Brothers were part of another squash match on Smackdown. They beat the hell out of a team known as The Triple Threat. Backstage, Charlotte Flair seemed unhappy about how Becky stole the show during the tag team match. Also, Samoa Joe ensured Paige that face-off with AJ Styles will go in a smooth way.
Aiden English competed in a match against Andrade Almas on Smackdown. Almas dropped English’s neck onto the ropes and followed it up with a Hammerlock DDT to pick up a win. Zelina Vega blasted Rusev and Lana with the mic in hand after the match. The couple came out to give a suitable reply to them. They vowed to crush Vega and Almas at Summerslam.
We witnessed several segments on Smackdown featuring Daniel Bryan and The Miz. These focussed on the rivalry between these two that is continuing since 2010.
Jeff Hardy was back in action on Smackdown Live. He took on against another returnee Shelton Benjamin. Jeff was on the verge to finish off the match but Shelton gave a big kick to the face. But Jeff came back with a Sling Blade setting up for a Swanton Bomb. He hit it successfully to win the match. Nakamura tried to attack from the back but digested another Swanton to end the segment.
AJ Styles and Samoa Joe featured in the main event segment of Smackdown. Both men promised to keep it less physical to save the match at Summerslam. AJ talked about his family before getting interrupted by Joe. The contender went personal, yet again by reading a letter from Styles’ wife. It claimed that she lost her husband many years ago due to his grueling schedule. The verbal attack from Joe ended the show on an eerie note.
