Tonight’s SmackDown will see The Usos defend their tag team championships against Butch and Ridge Holland as well as Braun Strowman’s return match as he takes on Otis.
It should be interesting to see how things play out on tonight’s show.
SmackDown begins with Undisputed WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns making his way out to the ring with the entire Bloodline and Paul Heyman with him. Reigns tells the Salt Lake City crowd to acknowledge him, and they do of course do, and eight minutes into the show we get to the actual opening promo, Heyman tells the “Salt Lake City-its” there are a lot of items on the Bloodline’s list right now. First, Roman Reigns is still your champion and now that McIntyre has another bridge to “Kross” (get it, like the Karrion guy), it’s time to talk about Solo Sikoa.
Heyman says Solo was sent by the elders of the Samoan dynasty to stop the conspiracies against Reigns. Heyman calls Solo the enforcer to ensure Reigns remains on his thrown on the Island of Relevancy, which allows The Usos to focus on their pursuit of immortality.
Jimmy Uso grabs the mic to guarantee that tonight they will still be tag team champions. Reigns takes the mic from Jimmy and calls out to Solo. Reigns says the elders may have sent him, but he answers to Reigns now and Reigns tells Solo to acknowledge him, Solo does so and Reign embraces him with a big Samoan hug.
Sami Zayn speaks up next as Jey Uso loses his mind with anger. Zayn says he knows he’s not technically blood, but he is grateful for how they have taken him in and that he wants to also publicly acknowledge his Tribal Chief. Reigns says “I like you Sami, but why are you saying anything right now?”. Reigns asks why Zayn even has “our shirt on” and what this is all even about and what Zayn really wants. Reigns says he wants Zayn to take the Bloodline shirt off. Zayn hesitates and Reigns calls out Jey Uso who rips the shirt of Zayn. Reigns says he doesn’t want to see Zayn in a Bloodline shirt ever again….. because he got him a new one. Reigns throws Zayn a shirt that says “Honorary Uce with SZ right about it” Zayn fraks out, daps up Jimmy Uso and Solo while Jey Uso looks so over this entire show already and Zayn hugs Reigns, and Reigns hugs him back.
Liv Morgan vs Lacey Evans
Our opening match begins with Evans backing Morgan to the corner after a lock up. Evans slams Morgan head-first to the turnbuckle and then drags her face across the ropes. Morgan hits a drop kick and follows with a running knee in the corner. Evans sweeps the leg to knock Morgan down to the mat. Evans slams Morgan head-first to the ring post which knocks her down on the outside.
The match continues live with Evans having Morgan in a side headlock on the mat. Evans throws Morgan across the ring and goes for a cover for two. Evans rolls outside the ring and grabs a kendo stick from under the ring. Evans gets back in the ring and Morgan ducks the swing and hits the Oblivion and makes the cover for the three count.
Winner: Liv Morgan
After the bell Morgan picks up the kendo stick but cannot bring herself to use it at first, like Bayley in 2017 but unlike Bayley she just starts swinging relentlessly, Morgan then puts Evans on a table and dives from off the top rope through Evans on a table outside.
Back live with Zayn being confronted backstage by Madcap Moss and Ricochet. Ricochet and Moss make jokes about Zayn and mock him being an ‘Honorary Uce” out of nowhere Solo Sikoa runs up and takes out both Moss and Ricochet in Zayn’s defense.
The New Day vs Mace & Mansoor
The match begins with Woods and Mansoor in a lock up. After running to the ropes Mace makes the blind tag and runs in to hit a knee to Woods’ head before tagging Mansoor back in who hits an elbow drop and lock in a side headlock. Woods hits a back body drop to send Mansoor over the top rope. Woods tries to crawl to the corner but Mace makes the tag to run in and stop Woods. Mace and Mansoor pose for photos taken by Maxxine Dupri, Kingston hits a drop kick and Woods gets a roll up for the three count.
Winner: The New Day
After the match, Max Dupri freaks out and screams at Mace and Mansoor as commentary acts as if Max’s anger is not entirely justified, Michael Cole would act the same way if it were Michael Cole Male Models.
Braun Strowman vs Otis
The big boys only match begins with a lock up, after some shovin Storwman manages to throw Otis across the ring and then Strowman hits a drop kick to knock Otis outside the ring. Strowman rolls outside and begins to charge towards Otis. Chad Gable drops to the ground to force Strowman to jump over and slow him down allowing Otis to take advantage and slam Strowman to the barricade. Otis hits a lariat inside the ring and covers for two. Strowman hits a spine buster and Otis rolls outside the ring. Strowman rolls outside and charges around the corner to slam right into Otis and Gable. Strowman throws Otis back in the ring and goes for a powerslam but Otis escapes and hits a world’s strongest lam and covers for two. Otis hits a Vader bomb off the middle rope and gets another two count from the following cover. Otis climbs to the middle rope and goes for a splash but Strowman rolls out of the way. Strowman hits a power bomb and covers for the three count.
Winner: Braun Strowman
SmackDown returns with Drew McIntyre in the ring. McIntyre says he doesn’t like playing games, but Kross didn’t get the memo and insists on attacking him from behind again and again. McIntyre announces that it is official that at Extreme Rules he will take on Kross in a Strap match that I’m sure will later be called to a Scottish Strap match. Kross’ music hits and Scarlett walks down to the ring. McIntyre turns around before Kross can sneak up from behind again. McIntyre slams Kross to the corner and then ties the strap to Kross’ arm. McIntyre slams Kross down and begins to whip Kross with the strap. Kross tries to leave but McIntyre pulls him back in the ring by the strap. Scarlett runs in to the ring to hit McIntyre with a low blow, saving Kross who then picks up the strap and throws it down on McIntyre and then Kross and Scarlett go to leave the ring but Kross turns back to choke McIntyre out yet again.
Dakota Kai vs Raquel Rodriguez
The match begins with Rodriguez slamming Kai into the corner. Off a distraction by Bayley, Kai hits Rodriguez with a scorpion kick. Shotzi then runs out to attack Bayley which distracts Kai long enough for Rodriguez to get a roll up for three.
Winner: Raquel Rodriguez
The Usos vs Butch & Ridge Holland
Our tag team championship main event begins with Butch driving Jey Uso to the corner with a series of right hands. Butch locks in an armbar and then stomps on Jey’s elbow on the mat. Holland tags in who is hit with a kick to the back of the head by Jimmy, who then tags in. Jimmy hits a series of chops in the corner and Jey tags back in. Butch and Holland team up to hit Jey with 10 beats of the Bohdran, making it 20 beats combined. Zayn causes a distraction and Jey throws Butch to the barricade. Jimmy tags in and The Usos hit a double power slam and Jimmy covers Butch for two.
Our main event continues live with Jimmy hitting Butch with an enziguri. Jey tags in and Zayn goes to throw Butch back in the ring but Jey scares him off and confronts Zayn on the outside. Butch takes advantage off Zayn’s distraction and hits an enziguri and tags Holland in who hits a slam on Jimmy after Jimmy is tagged in. Butch tags in and Butch throws Jimmy over the top as Jey makes the blind tag in. Butch hits a kick to Jey’s head and covers for two. Jimmy tags back in and The Usos hit a double super kick as Butch goes for a moonsault, Jimmy then covers for a two count. Jey tags back in and Butch counters the 1D with a DDT. Butch snaps Jey’s fingers and tags Holland in. Jimmy makes the blind tag and The Usos go for a double super kick but Holland catches and then lifts and slams both Usos at the same time. Sami Zayn grabs a chair outside but Sheamus prevents Zayn from throwing it in the ring as Imperium runs out to take out Sheamus. Off the distraction The Usos hit the 1D and cover Butch for three.
