WWE Smackdown Live 10/11/16…No Mercy Fallout

WWE Smackdown Live, from San Jose, California

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Commentators:  Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga

Segment Number 1:  Promo with new IC Champ, Dolph Ziggler.

The weeks leading into No Mercy, Ziggler put his career on the line, and he gave himself one way out…win.  And he didn’t know at No Mercy, walking in if that was the last time he’d see the fans.  The last time he was going to tape his wrists, the last time he’d sit in the back, and devise a gameplan.  The last time he was going to spray tan Zack Ryder’s back.  The last time he would walk into this ring.  For the first time in 12 years, he doubted himself and thought he made a mistake.  He had people approach him and say he didn’t have to do this, but he needed to do it.  He knew that moment he set foot in this ring, he knew this is where he belonged.  And he knew no matter what, The Miz, Maryse, The Spirit Squad, Kerwin White’s caddy, he would walk out as our Intercontinental Champion.  And dammit, they did it.

AWWWWESSOME!!  Here comes The Miz and Maryse.  They are both dressed in black, as if they are at a funeral.  They bow their heads down, for a moment of silence.

The Miz wants to take a moment to mourn the death of the Intercontinental Championship, because no matter how much Daniel Bryan held him back, for 188 days, The Miz was the one who brought back the prestige back to the title.  Not him, not you, not the fans, The Miz was the one.  Your victory is a funeral for the IC Title’s death, because if the mediocrity of Ziggler.  But if you think this is over, this is just act 2, where the hero needs to overcome all odds.  Miz is that hero.  It’s The Empire Strikes Back, because the movies all end the same.  The hero gets the gold, and the girl.  He already has the girl.  He wants the gold.

Ziggler was going to share something with the crowd, and he’s glad Miz is out here, so roll the footage.

Video:  The Miz crying

Was he just crying?  Is Miz about to cry right now?  Miz asks if this is funny, that face is everything he worked for, everything that was sacrificed, and he takes that very seriously.  Miz takes this very, very seriously, and if he thinks for one second that he did so much to keep it, imagine how much he can do to get it back.  Miz isn’t done with Ziggler, and neither are they.

The Spirit Squad.  They tell Ziggler they must face them in a handicap match.  You want some of this, you got some of this.

Match Number 1:  Dolph Ziggler (IC Champion) Vs The Spirit Squad.  (Non-Title Match)

November 20th is Survivor Series.  They want to give these guys an opportunity, which is why they are proposing a traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Match against Raw.  There will also be 5-on-5 Women’s Survivor Series Elimination Match too, will Raw say yes?

Match Number 2:  Carmella Vs Naomi.

Earlier tonight, Carmella attacked Nikki Bella, and this feud is far from over.  Naomi picks up the win rolling up Carmella, after Nikki Bella shows up.  Nikki goes after Carmella, and she runs through the crowd.

Winner:  Naomi (Via Pinfall)

Segment Number 5:  Backstage Promo with Alexa Bliss

Next:  AJ Styles Victory Speech.

Segment Number 8:  AJ Styles (WWE World Champion)

The Champ is Here!!  AJ beat Dean Ambrose AND John Cena, at the same time at No Mercy.  That isn’t just great, its phenomenal.  We live vicariously through AJ, but there is only room for one in this bandwagon.  So go cheer for John Cena.  Wait, he’s trying to be Kelly Ripa’s co-host.  But then again, you can cheer for Dean Ambrose.  You all are pathetic, but enough about you, let’s talk about AJ.  He beat John Cena.  He beat Dean Ambrose.  Some may not like how he did it, but one thing about AJ Styles is he does whatever it takes to win.  Did he say he beat John Cena and Dean Ambrose?  its so nice, let him say it twice, he beat John Cena, and Dean Ambrose.  Now some may take a year off after doing that, but he is about giving opportunities.  So come on out, and he will make them main event material.

Here comes Dean Ambrose.  Dean had AJ beat, but he had to take it the easy way out.  AJ reminds Dean you can’t win when two people make you tap.  Dean wants to remind him nobody on the roster will top him.  AJ says this isn’t a person currently on the roster, so come on out…..James Ellsworth.  The legend.  He had a chance to be AJ’s tag team partner a month ago, but The Miz beat him to a pulp, so now tonight, he gets his chance.  Non-title match, of course.  So scram Dean.

Dean wants to see this match, and here comes Daniel Bryan.  AJ may be the WWE World Champion, and he may be the Champ Who Runs This Camp, but Daniel runs Smackdown Live.  But he likes James Ellsworth, and makes the match official.  And Dean, AJ is right, you can’t be here, unless you’re the special guest ref.

Match Number 4:  AJ Styles (WWE World Champion) Vs James Ellsworth, with Dean Ambrose as special guest ref.

James Ellsworth wind the match, with some assistance from Dean Ambrose, with 2 Dirty Deeds, after AJ hits a Styles Clash.  Like I said, James is a legend.

Segment Number 10: Backstage Segment with Randy Orton and Kane

Orton meets up with Kane, saying being in Bray Wyatt’s world needs to stop.  They need to go in Orton’s world, with pain and agony.  Is Kane in?  Kane is in, but Randy, you have issues.

Video:  Royal Rumble:  Its All About The Numbers.

Moments Ago:  James Ellsworth defeated AJ Styles.

Segment Number 11:  AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and Shane McMahon

AJ is irate at everything that just took place, and was starting to take blame on Daniel.  But Shane doesn’t want to hear that, saying it’s official James Ellerton defeated AJ Styles.  He walks out, and Daniel says he has an idea for next week with James.

Match Number 5:  Randy Orton and Kane Vs Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper

Bray and Luke pick up the win, when the lights go out, and Luke is on the other side.  Kane disappears, and we don’t know where he is.  Bray hits Sister Abigail, and pins Orton.  We end the show with Bray laughing, and celebrating.

Winners:  Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper (Via Pinfall)

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Just an average show really, no big build to Survivor Series, since we are still 20 days away from Hell in a Cell.  For some reason, I loved James Ellerton beating AJ though.  The dude has some great facial expressions.  But nothing else was very good.  Share your thoughts here with me,
