SmackDown returns live with United States Champion Austin Theory in the ring, who starts his promo with “The champ is here” Theory says that he is going straight to the Royal Rumble where he will win the Royal Rumble. Theory is interrupted by The New Day making their way out.

Kofi Kingston says there’s only three Austin’s he respects, Austin Creed, “Stone Cold Steve, and Austin, Texas”. Woods says that unlike Theory on Raw, on SmackDown they need to get to business immediately. The New Day laugh at the idea of Theory winning the Royal Rumble, and say that one of them will win the Royal Rumble, and when one of them wins, they all win. Next to interrupt this segment is The Miz.

The Miz comes out and says that he has been competing in Royal Rumble matches since before Theory hit puberty. Miz says that he will win the one thing in this industry he never has, the Royal Rumble match. Miz and Theory attack The New Day as Bobby Lashley then runs out to the ring and Lashley proceeds to destroy everybody in the ring, with the ring cleared, Lashley grabs the mic and says he’s going to terrorize everyone in the Royal Rumble match. From out of the crowd emerges Brock Lesnar, who runs in the ring and hits Lesnar with an F5, and Lesnar then announces he will see Lashley in the Royal Rumble match.

SmackDown returns with Hit Row in the ring and Adam Pearce, Pearce announces that Sheamus and McIntyre have forfeited their position in the tournament, but rather than Hit Row advancing, they must face a replacement team, and out come Braun Strowman and Ricochet, which is wildly unfair to Hit Row and ruins the integrity of the tournament as a whole which Wade Barrett address on commentary, and Michael Cole says “stop bringing logic into this and just have fun”, well said, Michael.

Hit Row vs Braun Strowman & Ricochet

This ridiculously-made match begins with Ashante and Ricochet in a lock up. Ricochet hits an enziguri to Top Dolla and off the distraction Ashante runs up and hits a drop kick.

Ricochet takes out Top Dolla with a dive over the top rope and Strowman hits the power bomb and covers for the three count to send Strowman and Ricochet to the tournament finals while only having to win one match against a team that wasn’t expecting to go against them. Did I mention Strowman and Ricochet are the baby faces here?

Winners: Braun Strowman & Ricochet

SmackDown returns with Bray Wyatt’s original theme song playing, as the crowd’s fireflies illuminate the arena, out comes LA Knight in his freshest ugly Hawaiian shirt and a comically small lantern.
