Furthermore, there was a rap battle featuring three veteran tag teams of the blue brand. Also, we saw a debuting 205 Live superstar competing against the WWE Champion. Here’re the happenings from the show hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Daniel Bryan kicked off this week’s episode of Smackdown Live talking trash about the fans. He blasted the Las Vegas fans that they don’t care about any of the superstars. Soon, Mustafa Ali showed up asking what happened to Daniel Bryan. The WWE Champion also took verbal jabs to Ali before slapping him into the face. Ali jumped on him to create a physical altercation.
Mustafa Ali received his debuting match on Smackdown against Daniel Bryan. The champion started the match with some big kicks to Ali who came back with a superkick.

Bryan continued to punish Ali with the heel hook locked in after the match was over.
The New Day hosted the rap battle between The Bar and The Usos. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods dressed like Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels from the Dumb and Dumber movie. The Bar started the rap battle and New Day rated it with a trash can. These led The Bar to attack the New Day and The Usos and lay them down.
The Miz was in the ring with the Best in the World trophy. He invited Shane McMahon to come out and team up with him. After a bit of delay, two local wrestlers showed up to have a tag team match against them. The jobber attacked Shane from the back but Smackdown commissioner fought back. He applied the triangle lock to tap one of them out and pick up the win.
Randy Orton came out on Smackdown to inform us that a Chairs Match will take place at WWE TLC. He will square off against Rey Mysterio in this match.
