WWE Smackdown Live 10/18/16…AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth

WWE Smackdown Live From Denver, Colorado

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Commentators:  Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL

Tonight:  AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth, for the WWE World Championship

Segment Number 1:  Randy Orton Promo

Orton gives credit where credit is due to Bray Wyatt.  The evil side goes deeper than he thought.  The harder you fight, the more you pull into the darkness, the more you suffocate.  Orton feels like he is losing the fight, but Bray has a bigger problem.  Randy is wrath, he is vengeance, and Randy is coming for Bray.  The light cut off, and we see Bray in a coffin.  Bray is coming after Orton, he is about to take him on a journey where he is grasping for his last breath.  And there is nothing he can do about it.  He’s here.

Match Number 1:  Randy Orton Vs Luke Harper

In the middle of the match, Bray Wyatt comes out, with the coffin.  Bray comes in the ring, to DQ Luke Harper.  The Wyatt Family attack Orton.  The casket opens, up, and Kane shows up.  Kane and Orton signal for a RKO/Chokeslam, but the lights go out, and the Wyatts are gone when the come back on.

Winner:  Randy Orton (Via DQ)

Segment Number 3:  AJ Styles Promo

Cathy Dennis has AJ Styles, tonight he is defending the WWE World Title.  AJ can’t believe what is happening tonight.  He is the face who runs this place.  He is the WWE World Champion, and he has to defend his title against the skinny, piece of turd.  And we know he is not in AJ’s league.  Dean Ambrose can do something to cost him the title.  It’s like WCW all over again, with David Arquette becoming WCW Champion.  And he has to face that “noodle”.  But if Dean Ambrose does something, he will find him.

Tonight:  World Championship Match, AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth

Tonight:  6-Man Tag Match, Dolph Ziggler and Beauty and the Man-Beast Vs The Spirit Squad and The Miz.

Next:  Naomi Vs Alexa Bliss

Match Number 2:  Alexa Bliss Vs Naomi

Alexa got the revenge she needed after losing to Naomi a few weeks ago.  Alexa picks up the win with Twisted Bliss.  They can easily set Naomi up to be the next challenger, since she pinned the Number One Contender.  Alexa has a title shot on November 8th, live on Smackdown against Becky Lynch.  Renee Young interviews Alexa after her match, and she said the “Cinderella Dream” ends in 3 weeks, and the wicked witch will be done.  There will be a new princess, and that will be Alexa Bliss.

Winner:  Alexa Bliss (By pinfall)

Video:  Last week on Smackdown Live, with Ziggler Vs The Spirit Squad.

Tonight:  6-man tag match, Ziggler and Beauty and the Man-Beast Vs The Miz and Spirit Squad.

Next:  Curt Hawkins in-ring match.

Match Number 3:  Apollo Crews Vs Curt Hawkins

The match never takes place, because Curt talks some trash about Apollo Crews.  Crews slaps Curt’s face, and Curt Hawkins leaves.

Winner:  No Contest

Tonight:  AJ Styles Vs James Ellsworth for WWE World Title.

Next:  Carmella

Segment Number 6:  Carmella Promo

Two months ago in Brooklyn, New York she was basking in her first PPV match, and who’s music did she hear?  Nikki Freaking Bella, and she doesn’t get why the fans love her.  But Carmella is about to spill the tea on Nikki Bella.  Here comes Nikki.  Nikki is curious to hear what Carmella has to say, so instead of attacking from her behind, she can say it to her face.  Once again, Nikki is stealing her spotlight, but then again she is not surprised since her boyfriend is John Cena.  And she got her spot because she gets to go home to “Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect”.  Nikki is not surprised by this, and Carmella thinks she is hiding it.  But they have two shows together.  Everyone knows, but she chooses not to talk about it in WWE.  Nikki calls Carmella a bully, just like the internet bullies.  Carmella calls John a gold digger.  And we see some edited clips of “Total Bellas” to prove that point.  Carmella can edit, but what she doesn’t know is Nikki paved her own road, she pays her own bills, and wears the pants in her relationship.  You don’t believe her, when they didn’t believe in her, Nikki trained hard to prove them wrong, and when she did get that respect, her world shattered when she hurt her neck.  And she worked hard to get back to where she is at, and she won’t let a princess from Staten Island to hurt her.  Carmella tells Nikki she is a marketing campaign, with her “Fearless” T-shirt.  But she used her looks to get into the company.  She used her sister to get in the ring, and she is using her man to get in this spot.

Segment Number 7:  Interview with James Ellsworth

Renee Young is backstage with James.  James is nervous about tonight’s match, and he knows he’s not in the league of the Champ who runs this camp.  But he is going to be okay, win or lose.  Because he can tell his Grandchildren that for one night, he main evented Smackdown Live with AJ Styles.

Next:  6-Man Tag Match

Match Number 4:  Dolph Ziggler and Beauty and Man-Beast (WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions) Vs The Miz and Spirit Squad.

With some help from The Miz, decking Heath Slater, Kenny pins Slater, with a roll up and wins the match.

Winners:  The Miz and Spirit Squad.

Segment Number 9:  Daniel Bryan and Natalya

Nattie wants to be the first person to volunteer in the Survivor Series challenge.  She quotes Whitney Houston, and wants show her cats Instagram.

Match Number 5:  Jack Swagger Vs Baron Corbin.

End of Days, in very quick fashion.  Probably shorter than the main event.

Winner:  Baron Corbin (By Pinfall)

Segment Number 10:  More Natalya and Daniel Bryan

More cat pictures, but Dean Ambrose come out, dressed in a ref shirt.  He is ready to serve as the special guest ref.  He will call it down the line.  Daniel says he can’t be the ref tonight.  He can do anything else he want, just not a ref for the World Title match.

Next:  WWE World Title match

Match Number 6:  AJ Styles (WWE World Champion) Vs James Ellsworth, for WWE World Title.

Dean Ambrose served as many roles in this match.  Special Ring Announcer, Special Bell Ringer, Promoting WWEShopzone.com.  He did everything, and he made AJ so mad that AJ kept punching James Ellsworth to the point that he made it past the 5 count, so is DQ;d, losing the match to James.  The challenger did lay a offenive move, with Sweet Chin Music.  Dean announcers AJ is the loser of this match, AJ charges the ring, and is hit by Dirty Deeds to end the show.

Winner:  James Ellsworth (By DQ)

Kevin’s Thoughts:

There is 5 weeks left until Survivor Series, so this felt like another filler show.  But I loved the main event, and am sure we will now get a No DQ match between James and AJ, right?  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me.

Quick Results:

Randy Orton def Luke Harper, by DQ

Alexa Bliss def Naomi, by pinfall

Curt Hawkins Vs Apollo Crews ends in No Contest

The Miz and Spirit Squad Vs Dolph Ziggler, Beauty and Man-Beast, by pinfall

Baron Corbin def Jack Swagger, by pinfall

WWE Smackdown Live 9/20/16…Cena Vs Ambrose

Tonight, it’s John Cena Vs Dean Ambrose, and The Miz Vs Dolph Ziggler, for the Intercontinental Championship.

Smackdown Live is now.

We are live in Birmingham, Alabama, 3 weeks away from No Mercy.  Daniel Bryan is in the ring.

We have an official contract signing for the Women’s Championship match at No Mercy.  We will keep things civil, this is Smackdown Live, and this is a new era, and that is how it will be.

Becky Lynch comes out first, followed by Alexa Bliss.

Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to the show.

Bliss tries to get into Becky’s head, but it isn’t working.  Becky is preparing for a fight.

Becky doesn’t even fit as a champion.  Her role is to succeed, then fail miserably.  She gets back to what she does best, get back up, and fail miserably.  She wasn’t born to win, she is born to be a loser.

Becky agrees, she wasn’t born to be a champion.  She was born to live in a small house in Dublin.  She was born to work at a crappy job, and be miserable.  But she has watched far too much TV, and listened when they said she can achieve anything if she wanted to be, and she wanted to be champion real bad.  She wasn’t born to be a champion, but she has worked hard to get where she is at, and she wants this a whole lot more than she wants it.  And if she thinks Alexa will take this away from Becky, she will rip her head off.

Alexa tells Becky she was always destined to finish second place.  And at No Mercy, she will expose her what she was meant to be, a one hit wonder.

She throws the contract at Becky, and flips the table.  Signs it, and Becky goes right after her.  She signs it, and holds the Smackdown Women’s Title high in the air.

Becky Lynch Vs Alexa Bliss, at No Mercy.

The Usos are in action Vs American Alpha, next.

Backstage is The Miz and Daniel Bryan.

We have a problem, it’s the IC Title defense tonight.  Daniel said we can cancel the match, and The Miz is happy about that.  Daniel said they can cancel the match, and cancel the contract.  He didn’t read the fine print.  But that’s okay, they can cancel the match, and the contract.  But then again, Miz can’t do then what Daniel can’t do.  Is there a problem?

No.

Usos Vs American Alpha is now.

Winner gets Tag Team Title shot against Slater and Rhyno at No Mercy.

The Usos win the match with a Samoan Splash.  A fantastic match here that told the story of The Usos working on the injured knee of Chad Gable.  Chad wanted the tag, but Jason refused, in fear of Chad’s knee, and The Usos took over, and won.

At No Mercy, its Slater and Rhyno Vs The Usos.

Slater and Rhyno are ready for their match.  The Usos confront them, and said they got lucky at Backlash.  They have two options, either hand over their Tag Team Titles right now, or they take out Slater’s knee right now, so he and his 26 ragged ass kids can go back where they came from.

Tonight, its Randy Orton Vs Erick Rowan.

Jack Swagger joins us for Baron Corbin Vs Apollo Crews.

Corbin wins with End of Days, after destroying Crews.

Corbin goes face to face now with Swagger, and walks away.

Dean Ambrose is getting ready for his match with Cena.

Intercontinental Title is on the line tonight, The Miz Vs Ziggler.

Curt Hawkins is telling us more facts.

Naomi and Nikki are getting ready for their match, Charly Caruso asks how they keep this momentum against Carmella and Natalya.

Glowing is to be confident about yourself.  Natalya’s glow is corrupt, but she has an antidote for her.  She is going to make sure she feels the glow.

Carmella wants to make a name for herself, but Nikki isn’t the Nikki Bella she was a year ago.  She is fighting like this is her last match.  Nikki is glow, and Carmella is a bootleg.

Renee Young is with Dolph Ziggler.

Dolph hasn’t had many wins lately, but this is Smackdown Live, and anything can happen.  The Miz is desperate, he wants to cling onto that title, but Dolph is desperate too.  He wasn’t supposed to be a World Champion, but he did.  He wasn’t supposed to be a Kent State Hall of Famer, but he is.  There is only one thing left to do, win the whole damn thing.

Ziggler Vs The Miz, for the IC Title is now.

Miz used the spray Maryse had tried to use earlier, and hit Skull Crushing Finale for the pinfall victory.

A great match between these two.

Tonight, Cena Vs Ambrose, one on one.  But next, it’s Orton Vs Rowan.

RKO…BOOM…Match is done.

The lights go out, come back on, and we see the sheep mask in the ring.

Bray is on the screen.  The Viper strikes again.  They love you, but you and I Randy, we are about to embark of the most unholy of matrimonii.  Till death do us part, Randy.  But Randy is just a man, and Bray is a GOD that will never die.

Run.

Nikki and Naomi Vs Carmella and Natalya, next.

Carmella and Nattie are DQ’d when Carmella rammed Nikki on the barricade a few times.

The match ended as quickly as it began.

AJ Styles is polishing his title.  Charly Caruso interviews Styles.  He doesn’t have a rivalry with Cena and Ambrose, because he beat both of them.  The face who runs this place.  The Champ that runs this place.  He is the WWE World Champion.  All of those says he is superior to any of them.  So why should he face them in a Triple Threat match?  Its simple, that is the best way for him to lose the title.  So this is the best part, he gets to watch Ambrose and Cena beat the crap out of each other, and The Champ will watch it all.

Our main event, Cena vs Ambrose is now.

Ambrose rolls up Cena for the pinfall victory.

AJ Styles came from the crowd, laid both Ambrose and Cena out.

Daniel Bryan was impressed by what AJ did.  But last week, Shane McMahon promised Dean would receive a WWE World Title rematch.  That will happen, next Tuesday on Smackdown Live, in Cleveland.

Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds on Styles.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another great show tonight, beginning to end, everything had a purpose, and they are setting up No Mercy fantastic.

WWE Smackdown Live 9/13/16…The Face Who Runs The Place

Right after Backlash, we begin tonight’s program with a look over what happened at this past Sunday’s Backlash.  3 new champions were crowned, including AJ Styles becoming the new WWE World Champion.

We are live in Philly, and our new WWE World Champion, “The Face Who Runs The Place”, AJ Styles kicks off Smackdown Live.

Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to the show.

The Champ Is Here!!

I hate to say I told you so quietly, so let him yell it, I TOLD YA SO!!!  Everything he has said, he has done.  He told us he would beat John Cena at Summerslam, he did, and he is now the face who runs the place.  He told us he would beat Dean Ambrose, and he became the WWE World Champion.

If he told us he can beat Cena and Ambrose with an arm tied behind his back, you can bet its the gospel.  If he told us to buy a lottery ticket, because you’d be a millionaire, you would.

And now he is the champ who runs the camp.  Philly, did you hear him?  He is the champ who runs the camp.  World, he is the champ who runs the camp.

Here comes John Cena.

Philly is giving Cena some love, okay not really, but you know the deal.

You can hear all of these people, you want something that belongs to him, and he decided he wants it back.

AJ threw back his armband, and Cena wants the WWE World Championship, and he decided now is the time to take it back.  Because you know the greatest champion that has said “To be the man, you have to beat the man”, and he wants to make history.

He has one goal in mind, and that is to announce the 16-time Champ is here.

Here comes Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose goes right to AJ, and said he made the biggest mistake of his life.  He can take losing the title, but when he kicked him in the jewels, he stole it from him, and now is his enemy.  And you don’t want to make an enemy out of him.  Ambrose claims AJ did it because he knew he was beat, and there was nothing else he could have done

Cena pushes him to the side, and calls him out for losing after a nut shot.  Cena said Stone Cold was right for calling him out on his podcast.

Uh-Oh, please Dean, go there.

Ambrose didn’t step up, he stepped down, and showed WWE Universe he has no balls, brah.

Now the Philly crowd loves Cena.

I’m sorry, you must be mistaken Ambrose for someone who gives a damn about what Cena thinks, cause he doesn’t.  He has no patience for Cena.  He doesn’t care for his sanctimonious rah-rah bullcrap.  You know what Cena is to Ambrose?

A part-timer.

You’re better off doing those TV shows, those award shows, because you can’t keep up anymore.  WWE uses you as a corporate puppet that goes on morning shows, and look great on cereal boxes, but you can’t get it done anymore.  You can’t get past this chump, what makes you think you can get through him?  You’re nothing but a lazy….

And here comes Shane O’ Mac.

What’s up Philly?  Through all of this emotion, Shane had to come out.  At Summerslam, AJ and Cena tore the house down at Summerslam.  He beat him in the ring, clean.  Now the face who runs this place is getting to Shane, but he earned that.  But he got into Backlash, and tore the house down with Dean Ambrose.  But Styles took the easy way out.  It’s not how Shane would have done it, but he is the WWE World Champion.

And Dean, he knows emotions are getting high, but he is owned a rematch.  But that is not what is going to happen.  Because at No Mercy, he will defend the WWE World Championship against John Cena, and Dean Ambrose in a Triple Threat.

But since these two have so much animosity tonight, they will ne teaming up together to face AJ Styles and a partner of his choosing.  And since he is the champ who runs this camp, he is sure the GM will find a suitable partner for him.

Tonight, Randy Orton will address his status, and tonight, we will have a Fatal 5-Way to determine who the new Smackdown Women’s Champ Becky Lynch will face.

Rematch from Backlash, The Usos Vs The Hype Bros is now.

The Usos win the match with ease, hitting a splash.

Heath Slater contract signing is tonight.

We hear from The Miz, next.

Curt Hawkins is here!!

AWESOME!!!

Here comes the must-see Intercontinental Champion, The Miz.

For weeks, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and most of WWE Universe has been calling The Miz a coward.  But he left Backlash with his beautiful wife by his side, and the Intercontinental Championship on his shoulder.  It is day 162 of being the Intercontinental Champion.  He has held this title more than 132 champions, including Pat Patterson and Dolph Ziggler.

Here comes Ziggler.

He is holding the IC Title, yet he isn’t really the champion.  But no matter what he does, he hear people in the back laugh, Miz knows why.  The ones you can’t pull the wool over you eye, the WWE Universe, you will never be seen as a top guy.  The WWE Universe knows about you.

Miz wants to make this clear, every show Miz is on, he is a top guy.  And if he lives and dies by what the WWE Universe thinks, well then they can bury Miz 6 feet under, just like Ziggler’s career.

Ziggler agrees, he is at crossroads in WWE.  But Miz still has to prove he is the man, so what do you say one more time?  No Maryse, no interference, no girlfriends.  Just The Miz and Dolph Ziggler.

Maryse wants to get this clear.  Dolph Ziggler just wants one more match?

Here comes Daniel Bryan.

I’m sorry he interrupted while his wife was speaking.  Because Maryse cheated to win, and she is the only reason The Miz is still the Intercontinental Champion, so Dolph will get his rematch.

Miz has an issue with this, he told Daniel at Backlash if he wins his title, he wants his contract renegotiated.  So in order for Ziggler to get what he wants, Miz needs to get what he wants.

This prestigious Intercontinental Championship isn’t going anywhere until The Miz gets what he wants.

AJ Styles recruits Baron Corbin to be his tag partner. tonight.

Corbin wants that title, he’d rather be his opponent than his partner.

It’s now Corbin Vs Crews.

The match never takes place, because Corbin took Crew out of commission, and here comes Jack Swagger.

As of 12:01 AM, he is officially a part of Smackdown Live, and we will see a side of Jacl we have never seen.

Coming up next, Becky Lynch will have a few words.

Charly Caruso is with Becky.

How does she feel defying the odds, and become the first Smackdown Women’s Championship.

On Sunday, she was beat down by 5 other performers.  Five became four, then three, then two, and there was one.  They say the journey is better than the destination.

Well not when this is the destination, the Women’s Championship.  Philly is a fighting town, so come at me, bros.

5-Way Women’s match is up now.

Alexa Bliss took the cheap pin after Carmella knocked out Nikki, Alexa rolled her over, and pin.  Alexa Bliss will face Becky Lynch at No Mercy.

AJ finds Kane.

Kane is not impressed by AJ’s offer, and walks away.

Heath Slater’s official contract signing is next.

Shane McMahon introduces the new Smackdown Tag Team Champions, he tells Heath everything is in order for him to sign his contract, and Heath does.  It’s official.  Heath thanks some people, including the fans, Rhyno, and his family.  Now they can get that double-wide trailer.

Just then, The Ascension come out.  They challenge Heath and Rhyno to a tag team title shot, and Shane officially makes the match, now.

Slater and Rhyno win when Rhyno gores Viktor, and picks up the win.

AH Styles still doesn’t have a tag partner, but Daniel Bryan has one for AJ…some goofy guy named “James”.

Randy Orton address the nation, next.

Bray, Bray, Bray, all you do is talk and say you’re The Face of Fear?  He finally knows what that means, Bray is the Face of Fear, he is afraid of Orton.  That is why he attacked him from behind, but he will never be as good as Orton.  So Bray, come on out if you have the balls.

Lights go out, and Bray is on the screen.

A wise man knows when to stay down Randy.  And this world we live in is cruel.  I know this, I am giving you a gift.  I gave you a way out, and all you had to do was take it, but you didn’t.  And you chose to embarrass him, and he didn’t like that.  But now he knows what he has to do.  Don’t sleep Randy, do not sleep.

The spotlight comes back on, and Bray is behind Orton.  The lights go out, come back on and we see Erick Rowan nail Orton from behind.

But one RKO out of nowhere.

Our main event, AJ Styles and “James” Vs Cena and Ambrose is now.

Before James Ellsmore can come to the ring, The Miz attacks James, and hits a Skull Crushing Finale, saying he is the main event.

Cena and Ambrose win when Cena gives Miz an Attitude Adjustment.

Ambrose then gives Cena Dirty Deeds to send a message.

At No Mercy, it will be a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title.  AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose Vs John Cena.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another great show this week, top to bottom.  I wanted to see more interaction between Ambrose and Cena, but going by what we saw at the end of the show, it will happen.

The Miz has become a star, with Maryse by his side, IC Title over his shoulder, and the things he says.  He is fun to watch.

Alexa Bliss gets the nod, and should have a good match with Becky Lynch.

A fun show tonight.  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Send me your thoughts, and don’t forget to tune in read my work this week over at http://ForeverRebuilding.com click on Ringside Seats, and check out my latest Smackdown Vs Raw report.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Backlash 9/11/16

Never forget 15 years ago today.  Tonight’s piece is dedicated to the ones we lost on that September day.

We are 45 minutes away from the Kick-Off show of Backlash.  Smackdown presents their first PPV since the brand split.  And our main event will be Dean Ambrose Vs AJ Styles, for the WWE World Championship.

Keep it locked here tonight.

It’s time for Backlash Kick-Off.  Live in Richmond, Virginia.  Renee Young welcome us to the show, with Booker T, Lita, and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Tom Phillips is in the Social Media Lounge, and his guests tonight will be Heath Slater and Rhyno.

Tonight, The Miz will put his Intercontinental Title against Dolph Ziggler.

The Miz Vs Ziggler video is being shown.

Is this Ziggler’s last chance for a title?

Daniel Bryan is with Apollo Crews, trying to pump him up, giving him some advice.  He’s telling him to get loose.  Oh boy.

Baron Corbin isn’t amused by this.

He tells Daniel 2 weeks ago he beat the WWE World Champion on Smackdown Live, and he handles that by now having him appear on the show, and he’s off the Backlash PPV.  But he handles a nobody like Apollo Crews.

Apollo is free tonight, to kick his ass.  Daniel gives us our Backlash Kick-Off show, Corbin Vs Crews.

Tonight, Orton Vs Wyatt, we see video of that.

We are less than 40 minutes away from the live Backlash.

Last Tuesday, we see The Usos turning on American Alpha.

American Alpha is out of the title match, and we will have a second chance challenge, with The Usos Vs The Hype Bros, and the winner will face Slater and Rhyno.

I love this storyline here, we know American Alpha will be back.

Social Media Lounge, with Rhyno and Slater.

Rhyno is very “excited” about this match tonight.

Slater can’t lose, he won’t get his contract.  He can’t feed his kids.  He can’t get that double-wide.  He can’t build his pool.  He needs this win.

Has his kids trained him for this match?  This is hilarious.

Tonight there is a first ever Women’s 6-Pack Challenge match to determine the new Smackdown Women’s Championship.

Alexa Bliss joins the panel.

Booker T questions her experience in the ring, and Alexa believes she has this opportunity, and who is going to beat her?

Alexa is dressed like Harley Quinn.

Match time, Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL welcome us to the show.

Apollo Crews Vs Baron Corbin is now.

End of Days, Corbin silences Crews.  A good match to start the show tonight.

Renee Young is talking Jaeger Eaton, host of Nickelodeon’s new show.

Video set up for AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Title, tonight.

Is this AJ’s night?

WWE is starting a message saying we will never forget about the events of 9/11.

Backlash is starting now.

We are live in Richmond, Virginia, we welcome you to Backlash.

HERE COMES THE MONEY!!  HERE COMES THE MONEY!!

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan kicks off the PPV.

Welcome to Smackdown Live, presents Backlash.

Shane wants to thank all of us making Smackdown Live a success.  We are responsible for the ratings to soar, we are responsible for social media blowing up, and for new superstars to get their opportunity.

Daniel tells us we will have 2 title defense.  Intercontinental Title, and WWE World Title.  But we will also crown first Smackdown Tag Team Champions, and a new Women’s Smackdown Champion.

6-Pack Challenge kicks off the show.

Alexa Bliss is eliminated after Natalya and Naomi hit a Liger Powerbomb.

Excellent start to the show.

Naomi is eliminated after a Sharpshooter by Nattie.

4 women are left.

Nattie is eliminated by a Northern Lights Backbreaker by Nikki Bella.

Carmella rolls up Nikki, and eliminates her.

It’s now between Carmella and Becky Lynch.

Becky Lynch became the first Smackdown Women’s Champion, making Carmella tap out to the Disarmer.

All 6 women fought hard for this, and what a moment for Becky.

Charly Caruso asks Becky how she is feeling right now.  Becky thanks the fans for cheering for her for all of these years.  “Becky Balboa baby, we did it.  We did it”.

In 2 weeks, Raw presents Clash of Champions.

The Miz comes in Jagger Eaton’s dressing room.  He took Miz’s locker room.  Jagger asks Miz to be on his show, unless they can get John Cena instead.

Bray Wyatt attacks Randy Orton’s leg, will Randy be available tonight?

Second Chance Tag Match is set now.  Winner moves on to face Slater and Rhyno later tonight.

The Usos Vs The Hype Bros is now.

The Usos win with a leg cramp, making Zack tap out.

I love this new look by The Usos, and I can see them winning Tag Titles later tonight.

Renee Young is with Slater and Rhyno.  Slater is ready for The Usos.  He walks off, but tells Rhyno his stomach is upset, everything is on the line.  And Beulah made this crab dip that hit the spot.

But they are live, and Heath has to go.

Later tonight, The Usos Vs Slater and Rhyno to determine the first Smackdown Tag Team Champions.

The Miz Vs Ziggler for the IC Title is now.

Before the match, Miz wants to renegotiate his Smackdown contract, and after his match, things will get trickier.  So Daniel, Miz will do something he can’t do anymore, wrestle.

With some help from hair spray Maryse used on Dolph, Miz won the match with a Skull Crushing Finale.

These two can wrestle anytime.

The Kick-Off panel discuss what we have seen so far.

Earlier tonight in the Kick-Off match, we had Baron Corbin defeat Apollo Crews.

Bray Wyatt comes out now.

Bray wants Charles Robinson to count out Orton.

Greg Hamilton informs us Randy Orton cannot compete tonight, so Charles must count to 10, so he wins by forfeit.

The winner, by forfeit….Bray Wyatt.

However, Bray Wyatt will be competing in a no holds barred match against this man….

Kane.

Kane wins the match, with some help from Randy Orton, who came out with a RKO.  Kane wins with a Chokeslam.

AJ Styles approaches 2 “independent” wrestlers in the back.  Telling them they will never amount to greatness.  But they can tell their kids they were here when the new “Face That Runs This Place” became the new WWE World Champion.

WWE No Mercy is set for Sunday, October 9th.

Smackdown Tag Team Title match is up now, The Usos Vs Slater and Rhyno.

SLATER AND RHYNO WIN!!  SLATER AND RHYNO WIN!!  SLATER AND RHYNO WIN!!

Rhyno helps Slater by giving Jimmy a Gore, and Heath Slater has a job, and Tag Titles.

Heath and Rhyno get to talk about their reactions to being Smackdown’s first Tag Team Champions.

Slater was great in this, Yo Beulah, they are getting a Double-Wide.

Another Chicken Little commercial, with Ziggler and The Miz.  But they already faced each other in the ring.

It’s now Styles Vs Ambrose, our main event, and it’s for the WWE World Title.

AJ Styles just had his career defining moment, when he pinned Ambrose, after a ref bump.  AJ kicked Dean in the balls, and hit a Styles Clash for the win.

My goodness, this match had everything we needed.

The show ends here with Styles celebrating his win.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Going into the PPV, there was a report Orton hadn’t been cleared.  I always try to avoid websites the night of the PPVs, so I can be surprised.  They did what they had to do, but I felt Bray should have won that match.

And while they only had 3 weeks of build-up, I felt like the men and women did a fantastic job to make this a fun show.

It was built around Styles Vs Ambrose, and this was a fantastic match, and it ended the show on the right foot.

Now Raw has 5 weeks to build their PPV in 2 weeks, so I expect that show to try to top tonight’s.  But with Styles winning the big title, not sure if they can top it.

WWE Smackdown Live 8/30/16…The Face That Runs This Place is in Action

We kick the show off with footage from last Tuesday night on “Talking Smack” with Daniel Bryan and The Miz.

This was awesome.

We day 148 of the Intercontinental World Tour, with The Miz.

Shane and Daniel are watching at a monitor.  Shane tells Daniel he owes The Miz an apology, because he got into The Miz’s face, and he can’t provoke talent like this.

Daniel said he won’t be so honest next time, but he finds it ironic coming from the man who has a beef with Brock Lesnar.

We are off and running.

The Miz and Maryse comes to the ring to kick the show off.

Now do I have your attention?  Don’t you dare boo him, when he is being held down by both his General Manager and his commissioner, they are going to boo him?

It took 148 days to get his attention for an IC Title that used to be prestigious, and was held by failures.  But it will rise again, because of The Miz, our Intercontinental Champion.  But he has a “soft” style, he doesn’t like to get hit.  Maybe that is because he is smarter, and he isn’t a loser, who likes to get hit.

And Daniel Bryan wants to apologize to him?  But you people don’t see the big picture.  We don’t see what is going on back there.  Who do they call to be a spokesman?  Miz, then go do a media appearance?  Miz, then go do a movie?  Miz, then win the IC Title and play a chicken?  Miz.

He does it all, day in, and day out.  He never gets injured, but we all seem to think he is unworthy, and he didn’t spend his first 12 years working at a bingo hall at DFW.  But then they sit and cheer people who get opportunity after opportunity after opportunity, yet they fail.  So what does make all of us?  It makes us cowards.  And you know why we are all cowards?

Here comes Dolph Ziggler.

Miz is out here making great points.  He does it all, the red carpets, the movies, the commercials.  But there is a reason why these guys won’t get behind him, because they see right through Miz.

WWE stars, we live for this, we breathe for this.  We go above and beyond to be the best, but Miz just wants to be famous.  That is why nobody will ever believe in Miz.  That is why Daniel Bryan called him a coward, we all see you through this facade.  All you want to do is walk through a red carpet, hold your title, and be famous.  Every week, he has a chance to prove he is not soft, and he isn’t a coward.  Yet you don’t.  You want to talk about opportunities?  You want to talk about proving to people, prove to Daniel Bryan, prove to your wife, prove to yourself.  You want to prove you are not a coward?  Fight Ziggler right now.  No title, just the two of them fighting.  Prove to himself he can do it.  Miz and Ziggler….right now.

Miz is ready to fight, but he steps out of the ring.  Takes his jacket off, up to the apron, and off he goes.

I guess Daniel Bryan was right, the crowd was right, Miz is nothing but a soft, safe coward.

Miz goes right back after Ziggler, but Maryse stops him.

A great way to start the show.

Tonight, it’s Dean Ambrose Vs Baron Corbin.  And tonight, Bray Wyatt’s Sermon for the Serpent.  Bray Wyatt has a message for “The Viper”.

But next, Tag Team Tournament continues.  The Hype Bros Vs The Vaudevillains.

The Hype Bros pick up the win with a Hype Ryder.  Not a fan of Mojo Rawley myself, but this is the perfect spot for him.

They move on to Semi-Finals of Tag Tournament.

1 down, 2 to go.  There are great teams, but the hype train has left the tracks.  They have their sights set on Smackdown Tag Titles.

They will face the winners of the winner between Slater and Rhyno Vs The Headbangers.

AJ Styles greets everyone, he runs into the guy he doesn’t know.  It’s Apollo Crews, as in C-R-E-W-S.

But dude, this isn’t a spelling test, have a good one.

Here comes “The Face That Runs This Place”, AJ Styles.

Smakcdown Live, The Phenomenal One is here.  The face that runs this place is here.  And the face that beat John Cena, and the face that will beat Dean Ambrose.  Dean Ambrose will see this face in his nightmares.  Dean Ambrose will see this face lying down, as he pins him to become the new WWE World Champion.

Here comes the man AJ Styles doesn’t know.  Apollo informs AJ he went to the back, and he got the match.  Crews Vs Styles, tonight.  And that match is right now.

A good, short match here that ended with a Phenomenal Forearm, pinning Crews.

Tonight, Ambrose Vs Corbin is our main event.

Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL join us.  Renee Young traveled to Heath Slater’s home for an exclusive interview.

Rhyno is there, as is his wife, Beulah.

Franks, crackers, and cheese for o’ dours.  Beautiful.

Rhyno is just eating the crackers, hilarious.

Heath and his wife went out for a second, and Rhyno looked at Renee, with a “How ya doin'” look.

Tonight, Slater and Rhyno will face The Headbangers in the first round of Tag Team Tournament, but next, Bray Wyatt has a message for Randy Orton.

Fireflies are out, and here comes “The Eater of Words” Bray Wyatt.

He doesn’t fear snakes.  He doesn’t fear monsters, he fears no man.  Because Bray is FEAR.  And when he thinks of the legend of Randy Orton, he doesn’t think of him as a mythical serpent.  He thinks of him as just another man.  A man who believes he has venom running through his veins, and that excites Bray.  You’re sick Randy, but that is what Bray likes about him.  Now what Brock Lesnar did to Orton was interesting.  He exposed Randy of his flaws.  He went into that fight as a man without fear, but he sees him now as a flawed man.  Bray eradicates the infected, and if he really has voices in Randy’s head, then he prays those voices are telling Randy to run.  Run Randy, run.

Enter Randy Orton.

Actually Bray, the voices in his head, the voices in his head are asking him who the hell does this man think he is.  Bray thinks he is damaged because he has staples in his head?  He’s been damaged for a long time, which makes him go.  So from one damaged man, to another.  Bray has his attention.

There you are, that is the Randy Orton he was hoping for.  The predator he wanted to see.  He shows off his scars, and is still wanting to fight.  But Randy, you are no longer the Predator that you once were.  He is damaged, he is weak.  Bray is the Predator now.  And he should know better than anyone, what does a predator do best?  He kills, and at Backlash, he will cut the head off the serpent, and hold the head like a trophy.

Randy knows about scars.  Does Bray think he know about his scars?  He knows Cactus Jack dropped his head in a bag of thumbtacks.  He knows the scars he got at Hell in a Cell when faced The Undertaker.  But those scars Bray shouldn’t worry about them, he needs to be focused on the eyes of those demons.  Randy even half-ass respect Bray, because he knows he has his demons too.  So if he wants Orton at Backlash?  You’re on.  But fear?  He’s not afraid of kicking Bray’s ass, right now.

The lights go out, and we have a tag team match with the women.  Alexa Bliss and Nattie Vs Naomi and Becky Lynch, next.

Nikki Bella joins the commentary table as we are set with the women’s tag match.

Carmella attacks Nikki Bella from behind, and during the distraction, Alexa rolls up Becky, and win the match.

The return of The Headbangers is coming up next.  Tag Team Tournament continues, with Slater and Rhyno Vs Headbangers.

New music for The Headbangers.

Great music for Slater.

Slater and Rhyno win when a bloody Rhyno gored Thrasher.

Slater and Rhyno will face The Hype Bros in the Semi-Finals.

Ambrose Vs Corbin is next.

AJ Styles joins the commentating team to watch this match.

Daley “The Milkman” Millman is talking in the ring.  He is licensed to compete, but nobody wants to compete.  But he isn’t leaving here until someone comes to the ring and compete.

He takes his shirt, his tie off, and his pants.  He is wearing tiny whites.

Kane answers the call, and he chokeslams.

Such a stupid segment, but Kane leaves, as Baron Corbin comes in.  Future feud?

Our main event, Ambrose Vs Corbin is now.

Ambrose loses, when AJ kicks at Corbin’s head, and all three men battle.  But the show ends when Ambrose catches AJ right by the ropes, and AJ is feeling it in his lower area, Dean has some fun with that.

The show ends with Ambrose celebrating the WWE World Title.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Another good episode here, and it was highlighted by The Miz and Dolph Ziggler’s promo to kick the show off.  This could be a way to make The Miz into a bigger star.  He has done some great things with Maryse by his side, and that makes him complete.

I thought too Orton and Bray Wyatt was a good promo, and looking forward to their match at Backlash.

I love the trek Heath Slater is going, just keep it going.  I want to see how far he can go, the fans certainly love him, and the writing for him has been very good.

Where we go from here, who knows.

What did you think of the show?  Sound off, and be on the look out of my latest piece over at ForeverRebuilding.com under the Ringside Seats.  I will be giving my weekly Smackdown Vs Raw piece.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 8/16/16…Ambrose Vs Ziggler…Miz TV

We are 5 days away from Summerslam, the fine folks of Smackdown will be closing up their Road to Summerslam, with Miz TV.  Miz will have Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler as his guests.  We will also see John Cena Vs Alberto Del Rio.

Smackdown Live is now.

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan have Randy Orton sign the official contract to face Brock Lesnar.

Heath Slater has a bag of fruit, to offer a gift to his two bosses.  He expects a Smackdown contract, because he stood toe to toe with Brock Lesnar.

Daniel and Shane told him they are not interested.  I guess are in a bit of a pickle here then.

Orton has an idea, since he bit into an apple.

We cut right to the music intro.

We are live in Austin, Texas.  Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, and JBL welcome us to the show.

Miz TV starting the program.

Miz starts to welcome us to the show, but Dean Ambrose interrupts.

We are only a few days away from Summerslam, and Dolph Ziggler interrupts the fun.

Sorry to interrupt, actually, Ziggler isn’t.

Dean isn’t in the mood to talk, the two men go face to face.  Miz interrupts, reminding us this is Miz TV.  He invited them to talk, not fight, but talk.

Dolph Ziggler, who would have thought even 6 months ago, he would compete for the WWE Championship, at Summerslam?

Many people thought, including Miz he would turn out to be a flop.  But Ziggler proved the critics wrong in a career resurgence.  But what happens if he fails?

Ziggler isn’t worried about after Summerslam, he is only worried about this Sunday at Summerslam.

There is the new Dolph Ziggler, the fire, the pizazz, the determination.  Many people think this is the new Dolph Ziggler, but he doesn’t buy it.

Miz gives a OOOOOHHHHH

Shut your mouth, Miz.

What do you want Ziggler to admit, Dean?  That he used the company never pushed him excuse, that he always uses that as an excuse.  Dean was right about everything he said.  But he will be responsible for giving him that extra push he needed to beat Dean.

So let’s say Ziggler is right, where do we go from there?  You think the critics will leave you alone?  They won’t, that is where the real pressure comes, and we know Ziggler doesn’t like pressure.  He just caves in, and makes another crappy movie.  Look at this big chip, it just caves you in, because Ziggler doesn’t like pressure.  But he is going to continue to feel it, because Dean will beat him, and he will prove something to all of us.  He never wanted it bad enough, and Ziggler won’t want it bad enough.

Dean will feel pressure, but he will use everything to put Ziggler away, but it won’t be enough.  There will never be anything big enough to put Ziggler away.  When he is looking for one last move.

BAM!!  Superkick!!

This Sunday, you will realize Ziggler is that damn good.

Tonight, John Cena Vs Alberto Del Rio.  Also tonight, Heath Slater Vs Randy Orton.

But next, it’s a 12-man tag, featuring the Tag Team Division.

During the commercial, The Miz was talking about his opponent for Summerslam, even forgetting his name.  It’s Apollo Crews, and he shows up to let him know who he is.

If you’re keeping score at home, we have The Usos, Hype Bros, and American Alpha taking on The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, and Breezango.

American Alpha pick up the win for their team, with Grand Amplitude.

The Tag Team division has been lit.

Dean Ambrose was Superkicked earlier tonight, and he is not happy.  He faces Erick Rowan, tonight.

But next, Eva Marie makes her Smackdown Live in-ring debut.

It’s all red.

Naomi is Eva’s opponent.

Naomi has a new entrance, complete with glow in the dark, and is now a face.

But the awesome announcer guy is now introducing the glorious Eva Marie.

Eva Marie is unable to compete, due to traffic.

Oh my gosh, this is funny.

Flashback of Hell in a Cell 2015, when it was Cena Vs Del Rio for the United States Championship, and Del Rio won the match.

Del Rio runs into AJ Styles.

Styles reminded Del Rio beat up John Cena at Hell in a Cell 2015.  Del Rio isn’t impressed.

He doesn’t need Styles’ pep talk, and AJ reminds Del Rio he is the main event of Summerslam, and Del Rio isn’t even on the card.

Also tonight, Ambrose Vs Rowan, but it will be Orton Vs Slater, next.

Curt Hawkins is coming back to Smackdown, soon.

Orton Vs Slater is now.

Orton is DQ’d, because he thought Slater was Lesnar.

Does that mean Slater gets a contract?  It doesn’t matter, Orton takes Slater outside.  This won’t end well for Heath.

Draped DDT, off the barricade.

Orton is sending Slater to Suplex City, and mocks Brock.

RKO!!

Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan interrupt things.

Austin, Texas….we’re here.

Heath Slater is getting checked on, hurting all over.  Slater won, and we see Shane and Daniel congratulating him on his victory.  Heath thinks Daniel Bryan is Mick Foley.  He needs a pen, Shane hands him the contract.  Heath believes Shane is Stephanie.

But Shane takes it away.

That is cold.

During the break, Bray crossed paths with Orton.

Rowan Vs Ambrose is now.

A competitive match, but Dirty Deeds always does the trick.

Bray is looking at the sheep mask, and leaves Rowan.  Is this the end of The Wyatt Family?

Tonight, Cena Vs Del Rio.

But next, Carmella and Becky Vs Natalya and Alexa.

Carmella and Becky Lynch Vs Natalya and Alexa Bliss is now.

Carmella and Becky win with the Disarmer, making Nattie tap out.  Eva Marie did show up, so the traffic evaporated.  Naomi countered Eva though, and Becky pulled off the win.

Oh lord, Kalisto is getting beat up by Baron Corbin, again.

This is WWE Summerslam Week, on WWE Network.

Video of Lesnar Vs Orton:  15 Years In The Making is showing, now.

Orton Vs Lesnar, this Sunday.  I can’t wait.

Added to the card this Sunday, 6 women match.  Carmella, Becky, and Naomi Vs Natalya, Alexa, and Eva.

AJ Styles comes to the ring, to watch our main event.  That is next.

WWE NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn II is this Saturday, at 8:00.

Cena Vs Del Rio is now.

Cena picks up the win with Attitude Adjustment, and after the match, AJ hits a Springboard Phenomenal Forearm, and lays out Cena.

AJ is sick and tired of hearing the future goes through John Cena.  At Summerslam, after beating Cena, AJ will be the face that runs this place.  Cena says he has a passion of WWE?  That is great, AJ will make this a prison for Cena.  Because your time is up, my time is now.

He lifts Cena up, but John flips up, and hits an AA on AJ.

Now goes the table, John sets up the ring steps, and puts AJ through the table with another AA.

Cena is still breathing, and we end Smackdown here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

No matter what happens, John Cena showed us he is still the face who runs this place.  That will never change.  But I am looking forward to seeing Cena vs Styles.

I absolutely loved this show tonight.  They did everything they needed to do to hype Summerslam.  But my favorite segment still was Miz TV, with Ambrose and Ziggler, setting up their Summerslam main event.  I am also becoming a bigger fan of Heath Slater than I was before.  And what else can I say about Eva Marie?  My goodness, that was hilarious, how the awesome announcer guy told us she was stuck in traffic.

We are now set for this weekend.  If you want to check on my other work, please go to ForeverRebuilding.com, and click on Ringside Seats.  I am doing the new piece on Smackdown Vs Raw, where I tell you which show was the best show of the week.  That appears later this week.

I will not be covering Impact Wrestling this week, but look to continue that next week.

I will be on here for Saturday night’s WWE NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn II.  Send me your thoughts.

Daley “The Milkman” Millman is talking in the ring.  He is licensed to compete, but nobody wants to compete.  But he isn’t leaving here until someone comes to the ring and compete.

Who is this guy?

He’s in his tidy whities, and here comes Kane.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WWE Smackdown Live 8/9/16…The Lunatic And The Show-Off Team Up

After a boring Raw last night, Smackdown has a chance to supreme on top again, will they?

Smackdown Live starts in 5 minutes.

We enter the night with Randy Orton entering the building, and that new woman asks Randy how does he stay focused, knowing he is about to face Lesnar at Summerslam.

Orton said Brock may be big and bad, but it only takes one RKO to get to Viperville.

Alberto Del Rio interrupts, and says that sounds like it’s Disney World.

Randy proposes he finds out first hand, with a match.  Del Rio says let’s see if he can do it, with a broken arm.

We are live in Bakersfield, California.  Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to the show.

Bray Wyatt comes out to the ring, with Erick Rowan.

Last week on Smackdown, Dolph Ziggler put his Summerslam spot on the line with Bray Wyatt, and Ziggler won.  But Erick Rowan came out to counter.

I would like to make something very clear.  Last week, I did not fall to Dolph Ziggler.  Wyatt was a victim.  Ziggler was desperate, and he rammed Bray’s head into the steel, because he knew it was the only way.  Then he realized everything had been taken from Bray again.  But what Dolph doesn’t understand is Bray is a God.  And you can’t ever kill a God.  Ask your friend Dean Ambrose, because he knows Bray very well, he still has teeth marks on his side.  And what you two don’t understand is this is Bray’s show.  There is no blue, there is no red, it’s Bray Wyatt Vs the whole damn world.

Here comes the WWE Champion, Dean Ambrose.

Everything has changed, we have Bray Wyatt in the ring, as always saying some mambo jumbo, as always.  Then we have Erick Rowan standing by his side, but Bray thinks of himself as a victim.  Well listen up, Smackdown Live isn’t his show, it’s the WWE Universe’s show, and the champ runs this show, so Dean Ambrose runs this show.

Wyatt dares Dean to come to the ring, and make him shut up.

Dean is smarter, he won’t come to the ring by himself, but then again the more Bray sprays out his words, the more he wants to shove these big words down his throat.

Here comes Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler just walks to the ring, and fights the Wyatts.

Dean joins in.

I smell a tag team match, later tonight.

Ziggler nails a Superkick on Ambrose, accidentally.  And nails Rowan, but Sister Abigail on Ziggler.

Tonight, Orton Vs Del Rio.

And next, American Alpha are in action.

Ziggler and Ambrose face off, with Ziggler telling Dean that wasn’t on purpose.  Ambrose said he owes Dolph one, and Ziggler dares him to say no other time than the present.

Shane O’ Mac and Daniel Bryan rush in, inform them to save that for Summerslam.  Tonight, they will team up to face Wyatt and Rowan.  And if you don’t like that, then screw you.

Mikey O’ Shea and Mike Vega will face American Alpha.

The Ascension, proving to us they still have a job in WWE come out.  Here comes The Vaudevillains, followed by The Hype Bros.

All watching this match closely.

American Alpha wins the match, and here we go, all tag teams are fighting among each other.

American Alpha are left standing.

Tonight, Orton Vs Del Rio.

But next, the second chance in-ring Smackdown debut of Eva Marie.

Renee Young is with The Miz and Maryse.

Renee Young wants to look at Apollo Crews, The Miz’s opponent, Miz wants to look at Maryse.

Do you blame him?

Video of Apollo Crews is being shown.

Maryse and Miz are looking at each other, which is hilarious.

Eva Marie is going to face Becky Lynch.

The glorious entrance of Eva Marie.

Oh wait a second, Eva has a wardrobe malfunction, Rudy Charles asks for a towel.

No match, Eva can’t compete in the match.  Another no contest.

The new announcer asks Becky about feeling frustrated for not competing, Becky is here to compete.  So she challenges anyone to come out, and she will wrestle them.

It’s Alexa Bliss.

She is Team Blue’s hottest star, and here to bring bliss to Smackdown Live.  And she feels nothing better to knock out Smackdown Live’s first woman draft pick.

Becky Vs Bliss is next.

Eva Marie’s entrance comes out again, and Alex wins with Twisted Bliss.

Charlie Caruso is the woman’s name.  Eva feels bad about not facing Becky.  Alex beat her to the punch, but don’t worry, she will get her shot next week.

Tonight, Ambrose and Ziggler Vs Bray and Rowan.

But next, Orton Vs Del Rio.

We see the footage the last few weeks with Orton and Brock.

Orton Vs Del Rio is now.

Del Rio is DQ’d when he nails Orton with a chair, hurting that arm.

RKO out of nowhere!!

Rhyno is tuning up for his match with Heath Slater.  Heath reminds Rhyno that if he beats him, he can get a contract to Smackdown Live.  Heath tells Rhyno he has kids, and he can’t let him down.  He just bought a pool.  Rhyno just won the Michigan primary, he can’t let his constituents down.  Heath said his 4 kids are his constituents.  But Heath just said he has 2 kids.  Does Heath have an in ground pool?  Does it matter, Rhyno can’t let his people down.

Slater Vs Rhyno is next.

Earlier today, The Miz entered the building, and he runs into Scooby-Doo.

Scooby shoves Miz into Mystery Machine, and takes his car.

Slater Vs Rhyno is now.

Rhyno picks up the win with a Gore.  Slater is not a member of Smackdown Live.

We cut to Wyatt and Rowan.

Wyatt tells Rowan he has always been a good solider, but tonight he is asking him to fight.  To sacrifice his life, if he needs to.  To show the world that they are here to fight.  There is a cause for this fight.

Run.

Ben-Hur trailer, again, this movie will not do well in theaters.  You can’t make remakes from classics.

Daniel Bryan and Shane are impressed with Heath Slater’s work, they might even offer him a WWE Smackdown job.  Heath tells them he is the hottest free agent, he doesn’t need them.  He has 7 kids to feed, and will join The Suicide Squad, if he needs to.

More women’s action, with Carmella Vs Natalya.

Natalya tried to attack Carmella again, but you can’t do that two times.

Bell is run, match is official.

Carmella makes Nattie tap out to a leg lock.

Next, Cena Vs Styles Summerslam Preview.

Renee Young introduces us to the video of Styles Vs Cena, set for Summerslam.

We come back, and Baron Corbin is beating Kalisto a pulp, getting even for costing him at the Intercontinental Championship last week.

Well, alright.

Main event time, Ziggler and Ambrose face The Wyatts.

Ziggler hits a Superkick on Rowan for the pinfall victory on his team.

Ziggler pats Ambrose on the back, but “The Lunatic Fringe” hits Dirty Deeds, to show “The Show-Off” he is still the king on the mountain.

In 12 days, Ambrose Vs Ambrose for the WWE Championship at Summerslam.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

A fun show tonight, much better than last night’s Raw.  We have a little friction between champion and challenger, setting up Summerslam.  No Apollo Crews, and speaking of Miz, why didn’t he act upset Scooby took his car in his segment with Renee and Maryse, and who let him out of The Mystery Machine?

I know, who cares.

I like where they are going here with Heath Slater.

I expect both shows to be good next week, since it’s the final build to Summerslam.  What were your thoughts on tonight’s show?  Send them to me.
