WWE Smackdown was able to bring the hypes for Super Show Down in October on last night’s show. The championship rivalry became more intense with a pre-announced segment. A championship contract signing was the headliner on the show. Also, we were about to find out what next for Rusev Day members after the split from last week. Here’s how all of those went by from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
Smackdown Live kicked off with an entertaining segment where Miz TV got replaced with Truth TV. R-Truth and Carmella showed up to cut entertaining promos mocking the show hosted by The Miz. The original host of the talk show came out soon starting a heated confrontation. The Miz became frustrated and went backstage. But Paige sent him back to the ring for a match.
So the opening contest of Smackdown featured R-Truth vs. The Miz. The heel one sent Truth onto the ropes to get the upper hand but Truth fought back with a hip-toss. He was rolling with a Corner-splash followed up with a jaw-breaker. But The Miz poked into his eyes to hit the Skull Crushing Finale. Later, he hit the Running Knee mocking Daniel Bryan to get the win. Bryan ran into the ring but Miz escaped from the ring avoiding a fight.
Big E competed in a singles contest against Sheamus on Smackdown. Prior to the match, The New Day cut s funny promo about how they are going to defeat the Bar at Super Show Down. Sheamus started the match ln a quick note unloading punches on E. E countered with a hip toss to Sheamus following with a big splash. Sheamus later delivered a knee to E to deliver a Brogue Kick to pick up the win.
Rusev and Lana promised to get redemption against Aiden English for his betrayal on Smackdown. They walked into the show and a loud Rusev Day chant broke out into the arena. Aiden English came up to the ramp and dropped a bomb about a one night in Milwaukee with Lana. Rusev however still believed that his wife has done nothing wrong with Aiden.
The IIconics were about to cut a promo when Naomi’s music hit the arena. She alongside Asuka came out to have a match against Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose. The IIconics sat at the commentary table for this match. Asuka started with a German Suplex on Sonya. Naomi got the tag and hit Mandy with a Hurricurana. Later Sona tagged back into the match to digest a double kick from Sonya and Mandy for the victory.
Shinsuke Nakamura competed against Tye Dillinger on Smackdown in a non-title match. The US Champion ran into his opponent only to get a clothesline. Dillinger taunted Nakamura and tried to give a chop. But Nakamura blocked it hitting a kick to the back of the neck. Randy Orton came from nowhere to attack Dillinger making the match disqualified. Nakamura ended the segment with a Kinshasa on Dillinger.
Lana received a singles contest against Becky Lynch on Smackdown. Prior to the match, Rusev told her not to get worried about Aiden English’ comments. Becky slapped Lana in the match to receive a spear. Lana gave a big kick but missed a move from the top rope. Becky locked in the dis-arm-her to get the win. At backstage, Aiden claimed to bring video evidence of what happened with Lana, next week.
The main event segment of Smackdown witnessed AJ Styles and Samoa Joe championship contract signing segment. Joe continued mind games telling that AJ should be with his wife instead of being in Denver. In fact, he promised AJ’s wife that he will be there to serve as a replacement for AJ after winning WWE title at Australia. It will simply be ‘daddy’s home’ from that point. The verbal segment ended this week’s Smackdown with Joe getting the upper hand.
