Smackdown had its first tapping since the events of WWE Royal Rumble, and here’s what went down:
– New Day came out to open the show and ran down The Rock following their in-ring segment from Monday’s Raw. The Miz comes out and joins them. The Usos come out and challenge their opinions on The Rock and they’re joined by Titus O’Neil and Dolph Ziggler – which leads to a match
– The Usos, Titus O’Neil & Dolph Ziggler d. The New Day and The Miz when Titus pinned Miz with the Clash of the Titus
– Kalisto d. Neville in a US title match. Said to be a really good match.
– Chris Jericho did the Highlight Reel with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. No Brock Lesnar. Ambrose was cheered and Roman got a mixed reaction. Jericho put over AJ Styles prior to them coming out. Reigns and Ambrose put over Lesnar as a monster and Roman admits that he’s never been able to beat him. The Wyatts come out and say they took care of Lesnar at the Rumble. They will have a six-man tag at the end of the night.
– AJ Styles d. Curtis Axel after The Social Outcasts called him out. Styles actually used the Styles Clash for the win.
– Charlotte d. Natalya in a non-title match. After the match, Charlotte beat down Natalya until Becky Lynch made the save.
– Backstage segment with Team BAD with Banks saying she was splitting from the group.
– R-Truth and Goldust did another comedy segment with Goldust trying to form a tag team with him.
– Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns d. The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper & Erick Rowan) by DQ. This is the fourth straight week of DQ finishes on Smackdown. It might even be longer. They certainly haven’t had a clean finish since it debuted on the USA Network. Big Show came out for the save after Braun Strowman got involved, but they beat him down too. Jericho, Ambrose and Reigns recovered and cleaned house.
