Smackdown in Seattle

Michael Cole filling in for Tom Phillips as Tom is on assignment.

Daniel Bryan in the ring and the crowd going crazy to welcome him home.

Daniel announced 2 matches for tonight and then turned to addressing Samy Zayne. Samy on his way to the ring. (is this setting up a possible heel turn for Samy)

Samy insulting Daniel for giving up his career and all. Here come’s Kevin Owens. Backstage, Daniel delivers the news Randy Orton/Shinsuke vs Samy Zayne

6 Women tag team – Natalya/Tamina/Lana vs Charlotte/Becky/Naomi — with Carmella at ringside. Been a back and forth match, Charlotte in there now to prove a point. Lana had Charlotte’s tights but Charlotte kicked out, the faithful figure 8. Natalya tried to injury Charlotte again with a chair but Charlotte had the last laugh.

Baron Corbin — facing Sin Cara. Corbin as said that the United States open challenge is closed. Sin Cara won by count out. Corbin had no clue what happened.

Promo with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper.

Jinder Mahal with the Singh Brothers to the ring. (rumor is that Jinder will face Brock Lesnar in a non title match at Survivor series). The rumor is now TRUE, Jinder has challenged Brock at Survivor Series. A.J Styles in the ring, Jinder has beaten every worth opponent. No one is worthy of facing him. A.J challenging Jinder for the belt. Semele vs A.J next week.

Brock will be at RAw on Monday to reply to the challenge laid by Jinder.

Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler — They are going for it. Dolph has made the heel turn, holding the tights and Dolph with the win.

Randy/Shinsuke vs Kevin Owens/Samy Zayne – should be another interesting match. Here’s hoping someone punches Samy or Kevin in the face for Daniel. Randy and Shinsuke had the advantage but during the commercials, tables turned. (don’t you love the announce table that just seem to collapse) Owens/Zayne stealing the win at all cost.

Shane returns next week.

Smackdown Live — Fallout from Hell in a Cell

Today should be interesting especially to hear what Samy Zayne has to say, and how Shame’s injuries are. A.J is facing off against Corbin Barron to get his title back.

Kevin Owens and Samy Zayne to talk about what happened.

The Usos coming to the ring. They are walking slow but that was one hell of a match with The New Day. New Day in the ring. The Usos showing New Day respect. Here come the Hype Bros, now Chad and Shelton have joined the mix. Breezango have joined the silliness now, along with the Ascension. It’s the complete tag team division. Here comes Daniel to settle this mess. Fatal 4 way to determine the Usos next challenger. Gable and Benjamin win the fatal 4 way for a title shot.

Randy Orton/Shinsuke vs Rusev/Aiden English – With some awkward tag team work, Randy and Shinsuke pulled out the win.

Update on Charlotte/Natalya match – Nattie uses a chair to escape with the belt.

Renee talking to Baron Corbin.

Becky Lynch vs Carmella – Becky is taking it to Carmella. Carmella turned the tables on the outside. Becky makes Carmella tap out. A much-needed win for Becky.

Kevin Owens on his way to the ring, He’s limping but walking. Shane didn’t break any bones. Bragging that the universe should be thankful Kevin is not gone either. Kevin sent Shane away and that Shane won’t come back. The universe is not liking this very much. Kevin calling Samy his guardian angel. Now he’s calling Samy his best friend. (question – this a set up to pay Kevin back from all the crap he put Samy through). (Samy a heel?) Samy thanks Kevin for showing him that Shane doesn’t care about anyone but himself. Samy saved his Brother Kevin.

Looks like Harper and Rowan have gotten back together.

Rematch of the United States Title with A.J Styles vs Baron Corbin – A.J is giving Corbin everything he’s got and more. Barron is barely able to kick out. Trashing talking. A.J with the calf crusher in the middle of the ring. Corbin with the win but A.J made him work for it.

Bobby Roode on his way to the ring. Not sure if he is cutting a promo or is he is actually having a match. Bobby screaming at Dolph to get in the ring. Bobby won fair and square. The feud continues. Rematch is next week in Seattle.

 

 

Hell in a Cell in Detroit

This could make for a great PPV or it can be a real dud. The 2 matches to watch are Jinder Mahal vs Shinsuke and Shane McMahon vs Kevin Owens.

Tye Dillinger has been added to the United States title defense.

Women’s Title match – question here is depending on who wins does Carmella cash in?

**Pre Show match — Hype Bros vs Chad Gable/Shelton Benjamin — pretty even match so far. No one has really made a mistake to this point. It wasn’t pretty, Hype Bros stayed in it but Gable/Benjamin got the job done in the end.

**Main Show

*The Cell is already down for the Tag Team Titles being defended by The New day against The Usos. This could go either way, both can play dirty and not get caught. Kofi is the odd man out, everyone gong for whats under the ring. This is going to be very ugly, bodies all over the place. What one does not think of the other does. That looked over, where did Xavier come from to save the match? The Usos are 5 time Champions but what a hell of a match.

*Randy Orton vs Rusev – (I have heard that this feud might go on for a bit, wrapping up at Wrestlemania) Rusev having his way with Randy. With Rusev losing some weight, he has picked up speed and added muscle. Once again for No where the accolade gets the job done.

*The United States Belt – Tye Dillinger vs A.J Styles vs Baron Corbin – This can go anyway. A.J trying to get back in the ring. Corbin won’t let him. It has been a seesaw battle, with some good highlights. A.J dug deep to save that one. Baron Corbin steals the win by pinning Tye.

*Women’s Title – Natalya vs Charlotte (is Carmella wondering about). Natalya worked on the knee of Charlotte but Nattie is doing everything to shut Charlotte down. Charlotte loses on a count out but this far from over.

*Shinsuke Nakamura vs Jinder Mahal for the Smackdown Title – (rumors I am read is that Jinder will be champion when the show goes to India in December.Shinsuke could win it tonight but Jinder will win it back.) Waiting to see how long before the Singh Brothers interfere. Once again, thanks to the Singh Brothers nothing changes.

*Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler – This should be good. Dolph scrapped his music and walking out with nothing. Dolph trying his best to take it to Bobby but the crowd is not buy it. This Feud should be good. Roode almost showed the Ziggler full moon.

*Shane McMahon vs Kevin Owens – the boys are beating themselves to a pulp. What one doesn’t think of the other does. I will be surprised to see either of them walking on Tuesday at Smackdown. What was Samy Zayne thinking after everything Kevin did to him? Samy dragged Kevin over to lay him on Shane to get the win. WHAT??

Smackdown in Denver

Anything will be on today with Hell in a Cell only days away.

Show opening with Renee Young waiting for Shinsuke Nakamura in the ring for an interview. Jinder’s music just started and here are the Singh Brothers and Jinder on the way to the ring, the universe is not liking this. Jinder jumped Shinsuke from behind.

Charlotte/Becky vs Natalya/Carmella – (Charlotte/Natalya face off at Hell in a Cell on Sunday for the women’s Title). Charlotte had to tap out. it was a sloppy match.

Recap of Shane and Kevin Owen’s past.

Bobby Roode vs Mike Kanellis – That didn’t take long, Bobby with the win. Bobby facing Dolph Ziggler on Sunday at Hell in a Cell. Dolph just walked out. He and bobby are discussing entrances.

The Usos on the way to the ring. Facing The New Day in a cell at Sunday’s P.P.V. The New Day to the ring, telling the Usos to bring it.

Chad Gable/Shelton Benjamin vs The Hype Bros on the HINC Kickoff show.

Tye Dillinger vs Baron Corbin – Tye with a sneaky roll up and stole the win. A.J Styles on the screen. Telling Baron if he would have pushed himself a little more he might have the things he wanted.

Randy Orton vs Aiden English – out of no where an RKO on English, Rusev tried to get in the ring but Randy was waiting.

Shane in the ring and Kevin is nowhere to be found. It’s now a falls count anywhere match. Kevin lured Shane to the concourse and Kevin powerbombed him.  This match has everything to be the match of the PPV.

Mr. McMahon back to address Kevin Owens. Kevin is laughing at all the changes he thinks he is going to make. Daniel Bryan on his way to the ring.

Tag team belts, Women’s title, United States Title area all on the line tonight.

*United States Belt – A.J Styles vs Tye Dillinger – this should be a good match. Tye is going to push A.J. A.J forced Tye to tap out, offering Tye a handshake post match out of respect. Corbin Barron attacks A.J at ringside and tells A.J that he is his opponent next week.

Jinder Mahal and the Singh Brothers in the ring. Jinder will face Shinsuke Nakamura at Hell in a Cell. Jinder trying to be funny.

*Tag Team belts – The Usos vs @ members of The New Day (Kofi and Big E) its been one hell of a fight. No one is holding back. Who knew that New Day would pull this out, they beat The Usos at their own game.

*Women’s Title match – Carmella at ringside with James Ellsworth. Thanks to Carmella and James Natalya keeps the belt.

Dolph Ziggler trying to find an entrance. Used to life Dolph and now he’s just a joke.

Chad Gable and Benjamin Shelton against the Hype Bros.

Vince in the ring with Kevin Owens. Vince talking about respect and how Kevin doesn’t seem to have any. Owens files the lawsuit and he will be fired. Vince didn’t suspend Shane because he didn’t finish the job. Vince announcing a match between Kevin and Shame in Hell in a Cell. Holy Crap, Kevin just head butted Vince. Kevin frog splashed Vince and left the ring but Stephanie walked up behind Kevin.

 

 

 

 

Smackdown fallout from Summerslam

Should be another interesting show. I really thought Shinsuke Nakamura would take the belt from Jinder Mahal. (rumor has it that Jinder is not going over well with being a heel)

Natalya now has the Women’s belt. Naomi was just out wrestled on the day. I can’t imagine she won’t wait to invoke her rematch clause but then there is Carmella/with the briefcase.

Today’s show has opened with a recap of the Owens/Styles match. A.J on his way to the ring. A.J just issued an open challenge. Kevin Owens just walked out. Shane in the ring. Owens having a temper tantrum per usual. Shane just told Kevin this is it, no more excuses as long as A.J holds the United States belt.

The Singh Brothers and Jinder Mahal in Daniel Bryan’s office. The Singh Brothers to face Shinsuke Nakamura.

Kevin Owens talking to Samy Zayne to ref his match.

Aiden English vs Bobby Roode making his Smackdown debut. You should’ve heard the roar of the crowd when he appeared. The Crowd is behind Bobby. With a glorious ddt, Bobby Roode with his 1st win of many in Smackdown. Renee Young in the ring for a post match chat.

Daniel had Jason Jordan in his office and told him he had a new tag team partner in Shelton Benjamin

The Hype Bros vs The Usos — Another classic Usos match, The Hype Bros held their own but it wasn’t enough

Shinsuke on the way to the ring. 2 on 1 handicap match. A triangle choke forcing the Sign Brothers to tap out. Jinder tried to take out Shinsuke but it didn’t work.

Becky Lynch/Naomi vs Natalya/Carmella (James Ellsworth)  — It’s Carmella that Natalya has to worry about now. Natalya working on her own , Carmella refusing to tag in. Thanks to a mistake by Natalya forcing Carmella in the match, Becky and Naomi get the win.

Renee Young talking with Dolph Ziggler. (Rumor is he has been repackaged)

BAron Corbin is the guest ref for Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles. should be interesting. You know he can’t be trusted. Shane at ring side arguing with Baron, cheap shot on Aj by Kevin. Shane is now the ref, after Corbin walked off. AJ with a legal win. Kevin will be furious.

Today’s show has been better booked. Starting to set up new storylines for the next Smackdown pay per view.

**It’s being reported that Big Cass has an ACL injury and will be out up to 9 months.
