The latest episode of WWE Smackdown was taped at the Norfolk Scope Arena in Norfolk this week. Here’s a rundown of all the action that went down on Smackdown. Spoilers!
First up, a few matches for WWE main event were taped. Here are the results for those slugfests:
The New Day defeated The Social Outcasts:
Xavier Woods is wearing Big E’s wrestling gear for tis match, saying that his luggage was stolen at the airport. SUPRISE! It was all the work of the social outcasts apparently, leading to a six-man tag team match that The New Day won.
Paige defeated Summer Rae
The Paige Turner locks in a win via pinfall in this divas match.
Baron Corbin defeated Jack Swagger
Dolph Ziggler was sitting with the commentary team while this match on. Corbin hit Swagger with the End of Days finisher, leading to a staredown on Ziggler afterwards. And now for Smackdown!
Michael Cole is in the ring to discuss Money In The Bank. Dean Ambrose interrupts to talk about Chris Jericho, then Kevin Owens arrives and then he is interrupted in turn by Sami Zayn and Alberto Del Rio. And then almost everyone starts brawling, as Del Rio watches from the top.
Alberto Del Rio defeated Zack Ryder
Del Rio threw his cross armbreaker on Ryder, to guarantee a spot in the Money In The Bank match.
Big Cass and Enzo Amore are in the ring
And they’re there to talk! Yeah! The Dudley Boyz interrupt, but decide to end the segment by heading back to the Smackdown locker room.
Rusev defeated Kalisto
In a rematch for the United States Championship, Rusev walked out with his belt after a solid back and forth match against Kalisto on Smackdown. Titus O’Neil appears afterwards to challenge Rusev for his title, as the big European backs off.
Natalya defeated Dana Brooke via DQ
With Charlotte on commentary, you knew this match wasn’t going to end with shoulders on the mat for three seconds. It takes less than a minute for Charlotte to jump the match and get caught in a Sharpshooter from Natalya, but the daughter of Ric Flair was saved by Dana Brooke.
Fandango and Tyler Breeze defeated R-Truth and Goldust:
A short match between the four men, that left the Smackdown audience very puzzled apparently.
Seth Rollins is in the ring
Returning to RAW and now Smackdown, Rollins tells the fans that he didn’t miss them. Because he’s a meanie and everyone still prefers him over Roman Reigns despite his best efforts to go full heel.
The Miz defeated Cesaro
The final match of the night on Smackdown saw The Miz retain his Intercontinental Championship against the Swiss Superman, in a solid main event.
