WWE SmackDown Live Results – August 8th, 2017
We begin with a look back at last week’s match between John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura. Then we take a look at the post match involvement of Baron Corbin and what happened between Cena and Corbin.
We are in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and your announcers are Tom Phillips, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton. John Cena makes his way to the ring. John says there are some excited people and some upset people. John says he is as fired up as all of you. John says any night, WWE provides moments that will last a lifetime. The stage was set last week. A trip to SummerSlam and a title match. John says it was Super Cena against the King of Strong Style. John says he found out quick that Nakamura is afraid of nothing. John says he did not know why you chanted for Nakamura but he found out that Nakamura hits hard . . . real hard. John says he was doing his thing and he thought he was going to punch his ticket for SummerSlam.
Then the referee was raising Nakamura’s hand. Cena was wondering what happened and it hit him. John says he lost the match. There was no blind referee, no foul play, no Montreal Screw Job. He just lost. John says that does not happen a lot to him but he did the only thing he could do. He shook the hand of the man who earned the right to become the champ. Out of respect, Nakamura shook his hand back. Baron Corbin’s new music plays and he makes his way to the stage with his briefcase. Baron tells John to stop it. He says he is so sick and tired of people talking about this stupid handshake. Who cares about the dream match. You stuck your nose in his business. Baron says he does what he wants, when he wants because he has the Money in the Bank Contract. If you are looking for someone to respect, you should look at him, not Nakamura. He says he is the future and John will be the past.
John calls Baron a skinny fat dumpster fire. The crowd chants ‘dumpster fire’. John tells Baron if he wants to dance, he can sashay down here and he will put Baron through another table. Baron walks towards the ring but he says, why would he do it because he has the briefcase. Baron says he does what he wants, when he wants. Baron says that John has nothing he wants or nothing he needs. He does not have to beat John Cena so John can keep his respect. Baron says John is not worth his time.
Daniel Bryan comes out as Baron gets ready to go to the back. Daniel says it is great to be in Toronto. Daniel says he does not know if Baron is a dumpster fire, and John says he is. He does not know if Baron is the future because he does not have a crystal ball. Daniel says since Baron is not dressed to fight tonight, he will face John Cena at SummerSlam.
The Usos make their way in the back as we go to commercial.
