WWE SmackDown Winners and Match Cards
Logan Paul opens SmackDown
Logan Paul’s return also led to the return of Paul Heyman, who was all accompanied by gold-carrying Bloodline, except for poor Sami Zayn.
Logan Paul vs. Roman Reigns is unlikely to have any kind of suspense over who can win, but at least it’s an opponent outside the box in Reigns’ marathon reign.
Fans always forget how much they love Logan Paul when he wrestles. Because he got booed again in this segment, especially when he punched Zayn.
bounce differential.Sami Zayn
After losing to Carmelo Hayes at Worlds Collide, Ricochet’s push resumed on SmackDown with a win over Sami Zayn. At some point, Bloodline will have to really put pressure on Zayn to win the championship, and he’ll have to respond by winning the dormant 24/7 championship.
Braun Strowman Destroys Biggest Male Model
Alpha Academy actually put Braun Strowman in for quite a bit before rising up like The Undertaker.
WWE appears to be building Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman within the next seven months, but first, it’s building Braun Strowman vs. Otis.
Bailey Def.Raquel Rodriguez
The good news from Raquel Rodriguez’s loss is that she didn’t have to smile throughout the match.
Bailey scored a rare pinfall victory over Raquel Rodriguez.
Shotzi became a babyface with the help of Raquel Rodriguez. Unfortunately there were no tanks.
Backstage, Ronda Rousey and Liv Morgan waged a war of words, with Liv doing most of the talking.
Sorosico Def.madcap moss
Solo Cicore continued to take a liking to Sami Zayn and insisted that Zayn accompany him to the ring.
The match didn’t have much excitement except for Pavlov’s “Uso” chant.
After this match, Michael Cole confirmed a press conference in Las Vegas attended by both Logan Paul and Roman Reigns. , nothing has been announced yet.
Brawling Brutes wins No. 1 Contender Fatal 4-Way
Top Dolla again teased a dive out but was cut off by Ridge Holland.
Ridge Holland used a modified butterfly suplex that looks crazy. That’s it.
Poor Sheamus couldn’t get the crowd to applaud as he hit the mat helplessly alone. He later became successful with the help of Ridge Holland.
Top Dolla marched around the ring with three adult men in tow. Not to be outdone, Ridge Holland hit the Alabama Slam. This deserved the loudest chants of “this is great”, but Anaheim’s lukewarm crowd gave them only faint chants.
