SmackDown featured an epic clash pitting The Viper and The Big Dog against The Wyatt Family, an explosive Six-Diva Tag Team Match and a knockdown, drag-out slugfest between The Human Wrecking Ball and The Bulgarian Brute.
In the height of Dolph Ziggler and Big E’s impromptu match, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston managed to neutralize Bubby Ray and D-Von Dudley. This allowed Woods to distract the referee while Kingston interfered — and then held Ziggler’s feet down, just out of the official’s view, to assure Big E’s victory.
In the latest twist to the Divas Revolution, Team Bella challenged Charlotte and Becky Lynch to pick their tag team partner for a Six-Diva SmackDown showdown. That Diva was Natalya!
In the final moments of the subsequent match, The Queen of Harts thwarted interference from Brie. And while she tangled with both the mischievous twin and Alicia Fox outside the ring, Becky delivered a kick to Nikki, paving the way for Charlotte to make the former, longest-reigning Divas Champion in history tap out to the Figure-Eight Leglock.
After the match, a watching Paige refused to acknowledge “Team NBC” and made it clear that she did not like Natalya noising in on “her girls.”
In a true showdown between the fast and the furious, King Barrett reigned supreme over Neville, taking advantage of a separation by the referee to blast The Man That Gravity Forgot with the Bull Hammer Elbow.
Stardust dealt out cosmic fate
Stardust looked to the cosmos to discover the new subject of his chaos.
After a war-torn Randy Orton fought to tag Roman Reigns into the action, The Big Dog went to battle against both Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman. But when the action spilled outside the ring, The New Face of Face nailed his black-clad adversary with a steel chair and brought an end to the match by disqualification.
When the assault continued after the bell and The Viper reengaged, Strowman locked The Apex Predator in his devastating finishing maneuver, only to be neutralized by the Superman Punch. That left Wyatt to suffer the double-edged onslaught of the RKO and the Spear!
