Thanks to readers Brandon Lapp and Cassidey Davis for the following WWE SmackDown! spoilers from tonight’s tapings in Phoenix, Arizona. The following highlights are below:
– SmackDown opens with a vignette of Bray Wyatt talking about The Undertaker and Kane. Their spirits are his fuel. Bray challenges any 3 Superstars to face his 3 monsters later tonight.
– Roman Reigns comes out to a huge pop. He talks about obstacles and getting another shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Title. Kevin Owens interrupts and says Reigns stole the Fatal 4 Way win on RAW.
– Roman Reigns defeated WWE Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens by count out in a non-title match. This was said to be a pretty solid match with lots of “let’s go Roman” chants. Reigns knocked Owens out of the ring with a Superman punch and Owens ran off through the crowd.
– The Lucha Dragons defeated The Ascension, The Dudley Boyz and Sheamus & King Barrett in a multi-team match. The Dudleyz fought Barrett and Sheamus to the back while The Lucha Dragons got the pin on The Ascension. WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day were on commentary.
– Dolph Ziggler defeated The Miz in a Trick or Treat Street Fight. Ziggler won a good match with a roll-up. After the match, Tyler Breeze came out and attacked Ziggler until the referees pulled them apart.
– Paige defeated Natalya. Paige got a huge pop and they had another good match. Team BAD came out and distracted Natalya, leading to Paige winning with the RamPaige. After the match, Team BAD attacks Natalya until referees break it up.
– WWE United States Champion Alberto Del Rio is out next with Zeb Colter, talking about their MexAmerica group. They say the title now represents both countries.
– Alberto Del Rio defeated R-Truth in a non-title match. The crowd was in favor of Del Rio, probably 3-1. Del Rio won a squash with the top rope stomp.
– Cesaro, Dean Ambrose and Ryback accept Bray Wyatt’s challenge from earlier.
– The ghost is back. Mark Henry leveled Bo Dallas. Hopefully that ended the skit…
– Braun Strowman, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan defeated Cesaro, Ryback and Dean Ambrose. Cesaro got a hot tag and the crowd went nuts. He hit uppercuts on all three opponents for a big pop. Harper ended up getting the pin for his team. Apparently The Wyatt Family carried Ryback away like they did with Kane and The Undertaker but he came back, or they tried to carry him away. Bray Wyatt was at ringside for the whole match and the end was very chaotic.
