Welcome to Ringside News’ SmackDown Live results. Please keep refreshing throughout the night and we will keep updating as the show is going on. Everything kicks off at 8:00 PM!
Kofi Kingston won at WrestleMania and it was a big deal when it happened. Since WWE pulled a bait and switch on the RAW After WrestleMania, Kofi is still the WWE Champion. So you better believe The New Day will be celebrating.
The SmackDown Tag Team Titles are on the line in a match that should have probably been on WrestleMania. The Usos will put their titles on the line against The Hardy Boyz meaning you never know what can happen there.
The Miz has a lot to think about after his loss to Shane McMahon at Mania. It looks like he will have something to say about that too.
Becky Lynch said herself that she is a marked woman. Lacey Evans took the first shot on the RAW After WrestleMania. Now we will just have to see if someone steps up on the blue brand to try and ruin The Man’s night.
We also have new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions and they are IIconic. Billie Kay and Peyton Royce are likely to be there with a hilarious sketch planned. You also never know when any title in WWE will be defended next including new champions.
The New Day came out and there was a big balloon arch over the ring the looked like a rainbow. The fans chanted “Kofi” and “You deserve it.”
Big E hyped Kofi in a big way while calling him an A plus player with extra credit and the crowd stated chanting “A plus” as well. They did the hip swivel while saying Kofi is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion and then Xavier took over the promo to get everyone say “New Day.”
They Big E props for his skills at doing the splits and then he did it again while Woods played the trombone. Everyone was having a great time.
Big E gave it up for Becky Lynch for winning and everyone chanted “Becky.” Big E said he is at home on the blue brand even though RAW was fun last night. He admitted how many “butt stuff” jokes they made, but tonight is about Kofi.
They gave it up for Kofi and Woods remembered watching him debut. He said meeting Kofi was like meeting one of his heroes. Big E said The New Day got together to reshape culture and change history. They said that’s what Kofi did at Mania.
Then they said congratulations to Kofi and then the champ got to speak. Kofi said him as champion wasn’t in the script, it wasn’t supposed to happen, but here we are. He gave it up to his family at ringside and talked them up about their support.
Then The Bar came out and they got “shut the f*ck up” chants from the crowd. They challenged The New Day to a 6-man tag match and The Bar’s partner Drew McIntyre.
ALI, Ricochet, & Aleister Black vs Shinsuke Nakamura, Rusev, & Andrade
They spent a majority of the beginning of this match talking up the Superstar Shake-Up and how it could split anyone up.
Ricochet also spent much of the beginning of this match taking abuse from one heel after another. Then ALI took the tag and it turned things around for the babyfaces. Rusev took a double team move and then the heels went in, but Black ran them all out. They all did Black’s sit-down taunt and then they cut to commercial.
The heels eventually took control as Nakamura started laying some punishment on ALI followed by Rusev doing the same. Rusev took everyone out and ALI was the legal man, but he had nobody to tag. Then ALI came back with a tornado DDT and he got to the tag to Black as Andrade took a tag too.
These former NXT Champions were really over with this Brooklyn crowd. Ricochet hit a spingboard moonsault off the apon on Rusev and Nakamura took him out. Then ALI got tagged in and hit a reverse rana on Andrade followed by a 054 for the win.
Then Randy Orton hit ALI with an RKO outa nowhere.
Winners: The babyfaces
Suddenly, Kevin Owens showed up and hit a Stunner on Rusev and walked off too. He looked pissed. I mean, seriously. They left him out of WrestleMania!
R-Truth and Carmella came out and the hyped Becky Lynch and her Mania win and then they hyped Kofi and Mella for winning the Battle Royal. Carmella said she couldn’t have done it without truth because she see bit things in her future. Then Samoa Joe came out.
Truth and Joe brawled and then Joe locked on the Coquina Clutch because he could. Joe cut a promo about beating Mysterio in 60 seconds at Mania and then he said that he can beat any man… Braun Strowman came out and they teased a brawl, but Joe got free and left.
