WWE SmackDown Live Results – November 14 2017

1 Comment

SmackDown Live opens with Shane McMahon addressing the SmackDown roster backstage. He warns that tonight may be the night that RAW finally retaliates but they’re ready. Shane says after this Sunday, Smackdown will be known as the dominant brand and they will no longer be the “B” show and instead “the” show. Becky Lynch grabs a mic and says she will be the first person to pin Asuka. Then Baron Corbin talks about The Miz, saying this Sunday will be his End of Days. Shane grabs the mic again and talks about Triple H inserting himself onto Team RAW last night, but how they went out and acquired John Cena for Team SmackDown, going overboard. We also hear from The New Day where they talk about accepting the challenge from The Shield, then they lead the roster in a “SmackDown Rocks” chant.

We go live to the arena in Charlotte and out comes the General Manager, Daniel Bryan.  The fans in NC love Bryan. Daniel says it’s great to be back on SmackDown Live. Bryan said he’s lucky to be standing here after getting attacked by Kane and admits it was his fault trying to make peace. He says SmackDown doesn’t back down and doesn’t stay down. Bryan accuses RAW of being afraid by adding Triple H to Team RAW. He knows how vindictive Stephanie McMahon can be and thinks tonight is a good night for a counter-attack. “We are not afraid and we will be ready. And that is why I bleed team blue.” Bryan talks about things changing around here including John Cena joining Team SmackDown. He also would like to introduce the new WWE Champion: AJ Styles!

The newly crowned WWE Champion AJ Styles heads to the ring. Bryan brings up how the “Champion of the Universe” over on RAW has his own personal advocate. He asks Styles if he wants his own just for tonight. Styles agrees. Bryan begins to do the Paul Heyman introduction for AJ Styles. He talks about the things Heyman mentioned last night and how he thinks just because Brock is bigger that he has the advantage. Bryan says Lesnar has a pattern of quitting including deciding to quit WWE and quitting to a “half-assed kneebar” in the UFC. He says Styles will push Lesnar into deep waters. Bryan says when you are that big you can last for about 10 minutes in the deep water. “Brock Lesnar will mentally quit.” He says Lesnar can’t go all night long and can’t keep up with the Phenomenal One. Bryan has one reason to watch Survivor Series: to watch a 6 foot, 280lb man get mentally broken by the best in-ring performer of our generation, AJ Styles!

Styles takes the mic and says unlike Lesnar he isn’t a puppet, he can speak. He says fatigue makes losers of us all. He does agree with Heyman though, he is the underdog, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Styles says this isn’t a Rocky movie and instead an AJ Styles Production. He promises to find a way to beat Brock Lesnar and will prove that Smackdown Live is the house that AJ Styles built.

Later tonight, Charlotte Vs. Natalya, but up next, Baron Corbin Vs. Sin Cara.

Charlotte takes a second to get her breath back, then says ever since she moved to SmackDown Live, all she has wanted is the Women’s Championship. She worked towards it everyday and it means so much winning it in her hometown, and the crowd chant “you deserve it”. She then says she will go to SmackDown Live and make Alexa Bliss bow down to the Queen, because before there was a Goddess of Raw there was the Queen. Finally, she mentions that Ric Flair has had some health problems as of late and can’t be here but that this victory was for him. She woo’s and walks off as the crowd cheer.
