SmackDown Live in Seattle opens with hometown boy, Daniel Bryan, making his way to the ring. Michael Cole is on commentary tonight in place of Tom Phillips, and for the next few weeks.

Bryan stands in the ring and the Seattle crowd shower him in chants. Bryan announces that tonight there will be a six-woman tag team match, as well as a special announcement from Jinder Mahal, and a rematch between Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler. But first, Bryan wants to talk to someone because of their actions at Hell In A Cell. He says Sami’s actions disappointed him and as SmackDown GM, he always wanted Sami…

Zayn interrupts Bryan and obnoxiously dances his way to the ring. Heel Zayn is cool. Bryan asks Zayn how he can come out here smiling and dancing after what he did. He asks if this is still the same Sami Zayn that he’s known for 13 years. Zayn says that nothing has changed, that he is still a good guy, all he did was take ownership of his career back. The fans boo him and Zayn says he figured “these people” wouldn’t understand but Bryan should.

Bryan says that he understands that frustration but Sami cuts him off and says they aren’t the same. He says that they might both be gifted in the ring, well at least he still is, but the difference is Bryan and the fans. He says the fans are the reason Bryan got to WrestleMania and won the big one, but they haven’t been there for him. He says the fans didn’t hold up their end of the bargain for him but now he doesn’t care. He says it feels amazing not to care, finally, he tells Bryan that he should take ownership of his career and lose his martyr complex. He tells Bryan that if he had worked smarter like him, rather than harder, he wouldn’t be retired right now. The fans chant “Sami Sucks”. Zayn says it breaks his heart, much more than them, because he considers Bryan a once in a lifetime performer, the best of their generation. He says he never reached Bryan’s level, DB was always two steps ahead, but now Bryan is the last person he would want to be like; a man who gave his body for the adulation of fans, only to end up a housewife.

Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring, just as Bryan looked like he was going to explode. Owens says he is so happy for Zayn because he’s finally listening to him. Owens says that he needs to clarify something; Bryan was a pathetic martyr, a housewife, even “Mr. Bella”, but now he’s a hypocrite because he’s the authority figure he tried to overthrow. Bryan says that he sees through Owens poisonous attitude, and he’s poisoning Sami, who he doesn’t care about. Bryan says he cares about doing what’s best for the fans but Owens interrupts and says that Bryan cares about what’s best for business.

Zayn looks disgusted and says Owens is right once again. Zayn calls Bryan a sellout and the fans chant NO! Zayn thanks Owens for saving him from becoming Daniel Bryan and they hug. Bryan turns and leaves the ring, to which KO says walking out of this arena is all he can do. Bryan asks rhetorically where he is going, then says that he’s going to find a couple of guys to punch them in the face.

Up next, a six-woman tag team match, we see still photo’s from Charlotte Vs. Natalya at Hell In A Cell, then a clip of the brawl from last week. Charlotte makes her way to the ring.

United States Champion, Baron Corbin makes his way to the ring for a match.

*Commercial Break*

We come back to see Sin Cara on his way to the ring. Baron Corbin grabs the microphone and asks if the fans want to see him put the title on the line. He then says that’s too bad, because the Open Challenge is closed for good.

Sin Cara Vs. Baron Corbin

They lock up and Baron backs Cara to the corner. The masked Superstar fires off a few right hands and a dropkick to send Corbin out of the ring.

Cara follows up with a suicide dive that sends The Lone Wolf into the barricade. When he tries to get back in the ring, Cara drapes him neck-first on the top rope. He follows up with a cross body from the top turnbuckle all the way to the floor by the announce tables. Corbin can’t get to his feet in time and ends up being counted out!

Winner Via Count-Out: Sin Cara

Sin Cara celebrates big after his huge win, while Corbin looks on from ringside, pissed. Looks like we have a new feud for Corbin.

Renee Young is backstage with Jimmy and Jey, The Uso’s. She asks how they feel about their next challengers, Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable. They says that they’re feeling great because since day one of SmackDown Live they’ve been the boys, they have the tag division on lockdown. Chad Gable and Benjamin walk up and say they feel like doing a little rap as well. They say that they feel good and like they will take the tag team titles, but until then, they offer handshakes. The Uso’s go for the shakes but Gable and Shelton pull their hands away!

Later tonight, Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton face Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Jinder Mahal and the Singh Brothers are shown walking backstage.
