Kofi said he’s been a part of a lot of Ziggler’s big moments because when he won his first IC and US Titles he beat Kingston to win them. Then Kofi made them play the footage of Ziggler laying the US Title down in 2017 and walking away for no reason.
“You walked out,” chants started.

Moment Of Bliss

Bliss said that Bayley won the SmackDown Women’s Title because she had a good night at Money In The Bank. Bliss brought up how she cashed in the MITB briefcase on the same night she won it too. She also said that when she was champion the title meant something.
Bayley wasn’t taking the bait. She’s looking for new opponents. Then Bliss told her to hold that thought because her coffee was coming. Bayley slapped the coffee out of her hands.
Then Carmella came out to moonwalk and say that she needs to be challenging for that title. Then Charlotte Flair walked out. She informed everyone that there is a #1 contender’s match for Stomping Grounds. Mella vs Bliss vs Flair.
Carmella went backstage and she was looking for R-Truth who she found hiding out. Truth’s been using Mella’s phone to try and call Shane McMahon. R-Truth said the 24/7 Title is ruining his life. Truth also apologized to McMahon for ruining Shane McMahon appreciation night.
Then Shane McMahon booked a standard rules match for the 24/7 Title.

Everyone swarmed Elias and he got out of the ring and started to crawl away. Then Truth met him and they went under the ring with a referee. Then R-Truth came back out as champion.

Lars Sullivan Speaks
Kayla Braxton was in the ring and introduced Sullivan. Poor, poor Kayla.
Braxton asked Sullivan why he does what he does. Sullivan asked if she would ask a nightingale why they sing their sweet song or why a lion rips their prey apart. He has come to realize he is no man, he’s a freak. He made Kayla say “freak.” The crowd was bombarding him with a ton of awful chants the whole time.
He said his primary function is to cause damage and show everyone that the world isn’t full of rainbows and sunshine. It’s full of pain and agony. This is what he hopes to teach the Lucha House Part at Super ShowDown.
Then Sullivan talked about three blind mice and watching how they run and watch how they’re caught and their tails are ripped off and a portrait is painted with their bodily fluids… just like the Mother Goose nursery rhyme.
Andrade came out and had a short little bit with Finn Balor before they moved on to the next segment.
His entrance started at 10:50 and it was odd seeing him come to the ring with no pyro at all. There were a lot of “Goldberg” chants and then he thanked them.
He said he’s been waiting over twenty years to face The Undertaker… now he finally gets that match he always wanted. It’s going to happen in Saudi Arabia.
Goldberg brought up how he didn’t want to share the ring with a family-man Goldberg. He wants to share the ring ring with the ass-kicker Goldberg. He agreed that the family man Goldberg would fall short “so I left his ass at home.”
Goldberg said he’s bringing the old himself to Super ShowDown. Because at Super ShowDown we will all find out who the better man is between Goldberg and The Undertaker. Then he said “Undertaker you’re next to Rest In Peace.”
Suddenly the lights went out and then Taker was in the ring. He could make the drive because it was in Texas.
Taker and Goldberg stood face to face. Then the lights went back off and then came back on and Taker was gone.
“So that’s it, Friday night it is then.” Then Goldberg told Taker to “bring that jock strap” because it’s going to be a wild ride.
