Welcome to Ringside News’ live results for SmackDown Live. Keep refreshing the page when everything kicks off at 8:00 PM for constant updates.
WWE SmackDown Live only has three segments promoted for the show which means a lot more should be expected. After RAW’s performance last night let’s hope for a better showing from the blue brand.
Kofi Kingston is taking on Kevin Owens this week. KO will not be going to Saudi Arabia so Dolph Ziggler was called back to play a heel in a main event title feud.
Speaking of KO and Dolph Ziggler, The Show Off is promoted to appear on the Kevin Owens Show tonight.
Also, Bayley will take on Lacey Evans who is coming over from RAW in order to take on the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
All that and so much more is expected. So check back at 8:00 PM when the action kicks off.
Kevin Owens vs Kofi Kingston (non-title match)
Owens said he initially scheduled a Kevin Owens Show, but the crowd isn’t worth it. So he’ll just destroy Kofi Kingston instead. He claimed that he had nothing to do with Big E’s attack backstage. Instead, KO blamed it on Big E slipping on his own sweat or injuring himself while posting a hilarious tweet.
Finally, Kofi Kingston interrupted KO. He came out limping and throwing pancakes like frisbees. Kofi called Kevin a liar in a lot of ways. Kofi had some trouble with the lines, but when he fumbled he just started the line again.
Kofi started off quickly with a dropkick and then KO took control soon after that with some strikes. Kofi fired off some mounted punches and a kick before KO hit a shoulderblock and put the champ back down.
Kevin took Kofi down in a rest hold until the champ fought out. This whole time the announce team hyped Dolph Ziggler being in the building and how KO is softening Kofi up for the Show Off.
Then Owens charged at Kofi as Kingston lowered the top rope and sent Owens to the floor before Kofi nailed a trustfall dive over the top rope to KO. They returned to the ring and Kofi blocked a Stunner from Owens to hit an SOS for a near fall.
Kofi went for a springboard move and then KO shoved him to the floor. After a fair amount of selling and KO going to the floor, the action returned to the ring, but Kofi wouldn’t be defeated.
Owens slapped on another rest hold and then Kofi fought back only to get catapulted over the top rope. Kofi tried to skin the cat back in, but Owens kicked him down and nailed a splash from the apron.
Kofi rolled back in just in time for a bullfrog splash from Owens for a two count. They started battling on the top rope and then Kofi got knocked down as Kevin hit a senton for another two count.
Kingston avoided a pop-up powerbomb and nailed a Trouble In Paradise for the win. They are really protecting that finisher.
Winner: Kofi Kingston
Then they showed Shane McMahon with Drew McIntyre talking to Elias before R-Truth and Carmella were shown backstage.
R-Truth said he’s been running everywhere and hiding from people looking for the 24/7 Title. Drake Maverick walked behind them and started putting up his wanted posters for the 24/7 Title.
Daniel Bryan and Rowan
Kayla Braxton was there in the ring with the tag champs asking them what they think the WWE Universe needs to know. Then Daniel called the tag team division a joke and he’s not wrong.
Rowan had a joke too: Knock knock… who’s there… the SmackDown Tag Team division…. the SmackDown Tag Team division who?… EXACTLY! Then Daniel and Rowan laughed.
Then Daniel Bryan got boos for saying that they want to save the planet. Then Bryan brought up how Oklahoma leads the USA in fracking and they cheered that. This is such an awful way to get heat because it spreads an awful message in general, just saying.
Braxton then said that there is a tag team who would like to challenge them. Then Heavy Machinery came out looking happy to be on television.
Tucker said it’s time to get down to business and Otis said that business is the tag team titles. Then a referee came down and they went to start the match. Then Bryan said they’ll have the match, just not in this fracking state of Oklahoma.
Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville were backstage handing out copies of Rose’s Muscle & Fitness magazine. They IIconics were there and they approached Ember Moon who was reading The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. They mocked her for reading and then piled the Muscle & Fitness magazines on her.
Carmella vs Mandy Rose
Rose took some extra time to show off her magazine. She mocked Mella for not wanting to look like her. Then Carmella mounted Rose and laid in some punches. Since R-Truth wasn’t around we can only assume he was hiding somewhere safe.
Rose hit a running knee to the face after some back and forth action for a two count. Then Mella hit a rana and a boot before moonwalking and hitting a bronco buster in the corner for a two count.
Then Sonya distracted Mella and Mandy rolled her up for the win.
Winner: Mandy Rose
Truth was backstage and he avoided getting pinned by Jinder Mahal. Then R-Truth hid in a photobooth backstage while 205 Live Superstars, The B Team, and Matt Hardy went running by to look for him. Drake Maverick ran around the corner just as Truth was walking out of the photobooth and they smashed into each other. Once Drake realized he smashed into Truth they both went running off.
They showed a backstage promo with Aleister Black where said that people are waiting for him to pick a fight with anyone. Black said he is sitting there and waiting patiently for somebody, anybody to pick a fight from him.
Shane McMahon Appreciation Night
Shane said that Drew McIntyre is his best friend and this segment is his idea. Elias was there too and the ring had a red carpet on it. Shane said he came back to help run a family business and he talked about putting smiles on faces before saying that he has something to ensure that smiles are put on faces. Then they aired a Shane-O Mac hype video.
Shane put Kevin Dunn over for the video before saying that there’s no reason to boo Kevin Dunn. Then Elias sang Shane a song about how McMahon is the best.
R-Truth and Drake Maverick ran in the ring to interrupt the song and then Truth pinned Elias. Then Elias and McIntyre beat Truth down. Elias hit a Drift Away and then McIntyre hit a Claymore Kick.
Elias pinned Truth and became the new 24/7 Champion.
Then Shane booked a tag match with McIntyre and Elias vs Truth and Roman Reigns. Shane also said he’s suspending the 24/7 rules until their match is over.
Bayley vs Lacey Evans
This match didn’t go very far before Charlotte Flair (who was on commentary) had a chance to taunt Bayley at ringside after Evans heaved her to the floor.
Bayley eventually fought back, but Evans kicked out at two. Evans kicked Bayley down in the corner before dabbing her sweat with a handkerchief and throwing it at Bayley.
Evans went to the apron and Bayley racked her neck over it as they move to the floor. Lacey almost got the pinfall, but the referee was distracted. Then Bayley turned it around and got the win.
Andrade cut a promo on Finn Balor backstage. His English has gotten so much better. His hard work is obviously paying off.
Roman Reigns & R-Truth vs Elias & Drew McIntyre
Truth was taken out before the bell, but Roman took control and then he tossed Elias in the ring to lay the smack down on The Drifter.
Then Elias created some separation to get the tag off to Drew. Finally, Reigns hit a Samoan Drop on Drew and tagged in Truth.
Drew laid in a Glasgow Kiss to Truth and then went outside to hit a sick slam on Truth to the apron. They returned to the ring and Elias got the tag. R-Truth fought out of a rest hold, but then Elias clubbed him across the back and tagged Drew back in.
The heels tagged in and out with each other as they took turned laying it in on R-Truth. Finally, Truth found a chance to tag Reigns in so he did.
Roman started cleaning house with Elias and he hit a clothesline before knocking Drew off the apron. Roman laid in some short clotheslines in the corner and hit a big boot on Elias before gearing up for a Superman Punch which he hit on Drew on the apron. Then Roman threw Elias outside to run around and hit a driveby.
Roman grabbed Shane McMahon, but he dodged and missed McIntyre’s Claymore Kick. Then Roman hit a spear on Elias and got the win.
Winners: Roman Reigns & R-Truth
After the match was over, Reigns nailed another spear and then he encouraged R-Truth to pin Elias to win the WWE 24/7 Title again.
