The already announced lineups for the Summerslam event have given major momentums with this edition of Smackdown Live. Two big matchups were hosted from the women’s division to hype up the upcoming PPV with a big time main event. Here are the full results from the show hosted by the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
WWE Smackdown kicked off with John Cena who was out to address the loss suffered at the hands of Nakamura. Baron Corbin came out with his new music to have a confrontation. This led Daniel Bryan to show up and make a match official between these two at Summerslam.
The Usos defeated the team of Tye Dillinger and Sami Zayn via submission. After the match, they went on to cut a promo against the champions. The New Day came out from behind to seek redemption on them. After digesting some big shots, The Usos decided to run away from the ring.
Charlotte Flair had a scheduled match against Lana as per earlier announcement. Lana came up with insulting Charlotte by slapping her twice. This infuriated the Queen even more and she threw her opponent into the crowd. Then she connected with a big boot to pick up the win.
Naomi had a non-title matchup against Carmella. The champion was in control until James Ellsworth showed up from the crowd. Carmella distracted the referee allowing Ellsworth to wreck into the eyes of Naomi. She then connected with the superkick for the win.
At backstage, Lana had a conversation with her buddy, Tamina. The latter one gloated about getting her a title opportunity since she is quite ambitious. Natalya warned Carmella advising that she should not try to interfere the Summerslam match up or else she will pay for it.
Shane McMahon had a segment with Owens and Styles to hype up the US title match. Owens brought up the Montreal Screwjob context to point out that McMahon should not be the special guest referee. A brawl broke out with Styles accidentally hitting the commissioner with a pele kick to end the segment.
The Fashion police had yet another interesting segment that would continue for the next few weeks. Plus, Shinsuke Nakamura sat down for an interview with Renee Young where he promised that Summerslam will mark the beginning of Nakamura Dynasty.
In the main event, Jinder Mahal locked horns with Randy Orton. The Singh brothers were not present at the ringside and so Mahal could not capitalize. Orton converted a Khallas to an RKO for the win. After the match, Rusev showed up and put Orton down with a kick to close Smackdown.
