A Gauntlet main event match was the main attraction of last night’s Smackdown. It took place to decide whether Kofi Kingston can become the challenger for WWE title at Wrestlemania 35. The Miz returned on the show to address his match with Shane in three weeks. Also, women’s tag champs were in the house to talk about their next challenge. Check out full results from the show hosted by the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Miz kicked off this week’s episode of Smackdown Live and went straight to address the betrayal by Shane McMahon. He showed us a clip of the backstab from WWE Fastlane before saying that he sacrificed a lot of relationships in the past. So we can imagine how much his friendship with Shane meant. Now that it happened, an ass-whopping of a lifetime is waiting at Wrestlemania.
WWE women’s tag team champions Bayley and Sasha Banks vs. The IIconics were the opening contest of Smackdown. The IIconics cut a promo on how the tag champs showed up on Tuesday night for the first time. The match started with Sasha and Bayley controlling until Lacey Evans interrupted. Kay helped Sasha to trip from the ring as Royce rolled up Bayley to pin their opponents.
Rey Mysterio appeared on Smackdown Live to make a big announcement. He will be facing Samoa Joe for the United States championship at Wrestlemania after pinning him last week. His son Dominic also appeared in the ring to encourage his father. He should shut down another bully and brought in another WWE title, home.
The Kevin Owens Show was back on Smackdown Live with the special guests Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair. Owens went on to instigate the two of them saying that they have talked enough. Now it is time for them to settle out the differences with a fight. So all hell broke loose as they created a brawl inside the ring. The officials ran down to stop them and keep the situation under control.
Daniel Bryan appeared on Smackdown Live to cut a heel promo on Kofi Kingston who does not deserve a chance to the WWE Championship. Soon, Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods joined the ring as the Gauntlet match was in progress.
Up first was Sheamus against Kofi Kingston to start things. The New Day was not present outside the ring as they were not allowed. Cesaro was standing by the ringside to provide distractions for Kofi. Sheamus was able to lock in the Clover Leaf by virtue of this. But Kofi got out of it, dodged a Brogue Kick and landed the Trouble in Paradise to eliminate Sheamus.
Cesaro was next to challenge Kofi in this Gauntlet match. He locked in the Boston Crab but Kofi grabs Cesaro’s leg. Cesaro still went for the Walls of Jericho but Kofi got out. Cesaro tried for the Neutralizer but Kofi reversed with an SOS to get the win.
Rowan joined next in the match on Smackdown and took out Kofi with multiple clotheslines. He took the fight to the outside and hit Kofi with a steel chair to get eliminated. He threw Kofi into the announce desk before leaving.
Samoa Joe vs. Kofi Kingston was next on Smackdown. Joe attacked a tired Kofi with some big chops and shots. The Coquina Clutch was locked in but Kofi got himself out of it. Joe went for the Muscle Buster but Kofi reversed for a pinfall count and pick up the win.
Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton was next on the show where Kofi ducked an RKO attempt and rolled him up for the pinfall win. The New Day was out to celebrate but Vince McMahon came out and ordered Daniel Bryan to come out and face Kofi. If Kofi wins, he gets to compete at Wrestlemania. Bryan landed the Running Knee to pin Kofi and end the show.
