WWE Smackdown – Smackdown Result and Highlights

Roman Reigns and John Cena’s Faceoff- It seems like Roman’s slow walk to the ring checked the patience of John Cena who didn’t hang around a bit and as soon as Roman was in the ring, Cena’s music hit and he came down rushing to the ring.

Roman Reigns started off by saying that a lot of people say a lot of stupid things for me. He said that this man (pointing towards Cena) thinks he can beat me 1,2,3. But this is not gonna happen. He asked Paul Heyman when was the last time i was defeated, Heyman replied, this Roman Reigns is yet to be defeated.

John Cena then started off that he came back last month not to promote his movies, but to pin Roman 1,2,3. He said that he has come back to take the Universal Championship from Roman and make Smackdown a better place, to become a 17-time world champion, to break Roman’s ego.

Roman was pissed after listening to Cena’s words and said that on Saturday, either he is walking out of the stadium as the Universal Champion or he will walk out of WWE. Roman Reigns then lifted Cena on his shoulder, but Cena retaliated by rolling up Roman for a pin that counted 1,2,3. Cena left the ring ecstatically, while Roman Reigns was left shell-shocked in humiliation, on his knees.

Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs vs. Apollo Crews & Commander Azeez- Boogs is making his in-ring debut on Smackdown with this match and he was the one to start the proceedings. His impressive moves surprised the fans present in the arena and he did pretty well until tagging in Shinsuke.

Crews tagged in Azeez but King Shinsuke was too good for Azeez as he was ready with his offense. In the closing moments, Crews was hit by an abdominal stretched slam by Boogs who picked up his first-ever victory on the show.

Montez Ford vs. Otis: Ford started off with a right strike on Otis’ face and then to the midsection. Ford took Otis to the corner and hit him with multiple strikes. However, Otis came back strongly with a sore right hand on the injured ribs of Montez Ford.

Since then, Ford was never able to get back into the match as Otis completely dominated from thereon. His right-hand strikes on Montez’s injured ribs were obnoxious and he wrapped up the proceedings with a middle rope splash on one half of the Street Profit member.

Seth Rollins in the ring- Seth Rollins started off by saying that Edge covered all the bases of excuses in his promo earlier why he will lose tomorrow night on Summerslam. While Seth Rollins was talking, everyone was chanting We Want Edge, Edge! Edge!, You Suck.

Seth further added there is no shame in finding yourself out of the darkness. As Rollins was speaking, the entire arena turned Red and The Brood’s music hit. Edge appeared on the big screen. It was a different side of the Rated-R Superstar, a side he was accustomed to when he was with The Brood.

After a minute or two, a black paint just poured all over Seth Rollins that humiliated him to the fullest.



Shotzi & Nox vs. Natalya & Tamina- Despite defeating them twice, Shotzi & Nox will yet again face Natalya & Tamina in a Women’s Tag-Team Championship contenders match. Shotzi and Tamina started off the proceedings and Tamina was viciously attacking Shotzi exploding her frustration.

Natalya then got in and continued the same momentum. She had her offense placed perfectly on Shotzi and wrapped her hands around Shotzi’s neck to incapacitate her. After a series of attacks, Nox finally got some opening with a neck breaker.

In the closing moments, Shotzi hit a cold knee to Tamina on the apron and then went on to roll-up Natalya to secure a third victory in a row over the Women’s Tag-Team Champions.

Backstage- The EST of WWE Bianca Belair gets interviewed by Kayla Braxton. Kayla mentioned Sasha Banks in the conversation but Bianca stopped her just right there as she wasn’t willing to talk about Sasha.



Baron Corbin vs. Kevin Owens- Baron Corbin made his way to the ring without any intro music and with the stolen Money in the Bank briefcase wrapped around his arms.

As the bell rang, Owens just when after Corbin with a series of left and right-hand strikes and multiple chops on the chest. Corbin then came back and started his offense for good. His right-hand strikes were ferocious that took Owens by surprise. Later Owens somehow get the opening and sent Corbin outside the ring for a Swanton dive from the apron.

As the match was progressing, Big E’s music hit and he came out furious. Corbin was shocked to see him and rushed towards the announce table where the Money in the Bank briefcase was kept. He took the briefcase with him but got attacked by Big E. As Big E was leaving with his briefcase, Corbin pushed him on the ring post and yet again fled away with the briefcase.

Jey Uso vs Rey Mysterio- A lock-up to start off the match and soon Jey Uso sends Rey outside the ring. Rey buys some time outside and returns to the ring and Rey caught him with his leg on the neck to roll him down on the mat.

Rey then got on the shoulders of Jey and hit him with a fierce combination of left & right strikes only to roll Jey outside the ring. Jimmy came to see Jey and Rey just dived with a reverse moonsault on the twin brothers to have the upper hand before heading into the commercial.

After the commercial, both men were inside the ring with Jey’s arm wrapped around Rey’s neck. He followed up with a vicious Samoan Drop to go for a quick 2-count. The two men were on the top turnbuckle and striking each other. Rey got some space to throw Jey with a top-rope hurricanrana.

At one moment of time, Rey went for a sit-top from the top turnbuckle and followed it up by swinging DDT. Rey then hit a 619 and was going for a roll-up pin with his son Dominik’s support, but the referee saw Dominik and send him off backstage.

This made Rey unamused and he went outside to debate with his son. The Uso brothers took advantage and attacked the Mysterio’s in ambush. Jey then sent Rey rolling inside the ring and hit the Uso Splash on him to pick up a pinfall victory.

Edge kicks off the show- Edge is sitting in the middle of the ring and started talking about what Seth Rollins said last week. He said that boot on the back of his neck in 2014 r.eally threatened him.

He then said that he knows what a curb stomp could do to his neck and probably could end his career. The triple-fusion neck surgery has him going through these years. He said he knows what Seth could do to him but he doesn’t fear him and will defeat him, humble him at Summerslam, and most importantly, burn him down.
