The bar has been set very very high for SmackDown. Last nights first "New Era" Monday Night Raw was fantastic in every way. Bring on the brand competition! I can't wait to see what they bring to the table with their stacked roster. Cena and Styles will get some time together, and Randy may have his first match back from injury. Dean is still our champ, and the New Era continues!!!
PROMO: Shane and DB kick off the show welcoming everyone to SmackDown Live. They say its not about them, its about the superstars and their talents in the ring, and all about the fans. After the new song is played, DB and Shane are in the ring surrounded by all the members of the SmackDown Live roster. Shane says that the first SmackDown only PPV will be September 11th, Backlash! But first, its all about SummerSlam. SmackDown is the lone show for the WWE Championship, and they must find him an opponent. They then introduce Dean as he makes his way to the ring! Dean says after his successful defense at Battleground, he is ready for a new challenge, and has the SD Live fever. Daniel Bryan says he loves the fact that Dean is ready for a fight against anyone at anytime. Daniel announces that they will have six pack challenge for the number one contendership to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The entrants are.. John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin, and AJ Styles. Although that's only five people. The sixth spot is open to everyone, the sixth person will be the winner of a battle royal and that starts now.
The winner of this battle royal will be the sixth member in the six pack challenge to determine who will go on to face Dean Ambrose at SummerSlam for the WWE Championship.
The final four are: Kane, Zack Ryder, Apollo Crews, and Kalisto
The final two are: Kane and Apollo Crews
Apollo Crews tosses Kane over for the win and will be the sixth member of the six pack challenge.
RESULT: Apollo Crews wins.
THOUGHTS: Wow! Not expecting him. I was figuring Del Rio, but Crews is a great addition to that last match!
PROMO: Renee steps in to congratulate Apollo, and he says he is the happiest man alive but won't start his celebration until he wins tonight.
THEY PLAY A VIDEO AFTERWARDS THAT ANNOUNCES THE GOLD STANDARD, SHELTON BENJAMIN, WILL BE COMING TO SMACKDOWN LIVE.
PROMO: Dolph Ziggler says that he has been so close his entire career, always scratching the glass ceiling. But tonight he becomes number one contender after winning the six pack challenge.
MATCH: Becky Lynch vs. Natalya
RESULTS: Becky Lynch wins via submission
THOUGHTS: Good for Becky. Not a bad match at all!
PROMO: Renee gets ready to interview Becky, but they are interrupted by Alexa Bliss who says she is the biggest female star on SmackDown. Then they are joined by Naomi and Carmella who say they will shine on SmackDown Live. But wait! There's more! Eva Marie. Nevermind. Not as exciting as I thought it would be.
PROMO: Baron Corbin says that he is winning the main event tonight for one person.. Himself. The only one that matters.
MIZ TV: The Miz and Maryse are in the ring for MIZ TV. The Legend Killer, the man that through evolution built his legacy will be the guest.. Himself. That's how he describes himself. And he interviews himself. He says throughout the interview.. With himself.. That he is happy to make people proud who can never be proud of themselves... Them Randy Orton, who I'm assuming was to be the original interviewee, comes out. Randy comes out and says that his introduction fit him perfectly, so he thought he would come out to join the fun. Miz still cannot figure out why he interrupted Miz TV when he takes on Brock Lesnar. The legend of Brock Lesnar, but Randy says there was a time that he made good money killing legends. He may go to suplex city on a bumpy ride, but it takes one RKO to go to Viperville. Miz says that his first match back may be his last at SummerSlam. Randy says that it won't be his last match, and he didn't think it would be his first. He proposes a match against the Intercontinental Champion, The Miz. Miz says no, of course. Randy says there is no title on the line, just a match between two old friends. Miz still says no, and Randy says he must be afraid to get his ass kicked in frnt of his wife. Randy then asks which one in the relationship pitches and catches.. Maryse takes offense and accepts the match on behalf of her husband.
MATCH: Randy Orton vs. The Miz(w Maryse)
RESULTS: Randy Orton wins via pin fall.
THOUGHTS: Ahhh how I missed that RKO. It is a beautiful thing.
PROMO: As some scrub was in the ring getting ready for a match, Heath Slater comes through the crowd and beats the hell out of him. Heath is a little upset he didn't get drafted. He says that DB and Shane should mke the main event a Magnificent Seven challenge with him involved. Shane comes out and says that the show is live, and there is a better way of going about this like send in a resume. Heath takes major offense to that and says that he has the WWE Network as his resume. Type his name in, and itll tell him everything he needs to know. As he is going on a tangent, Rhyno sneaks in the ring behind him and hits him with a Gore spear! The Manbeast Rhyno has made his way up from NXT to SmackDown Live!
PROMO: AJ says this new era feels a lot like the old one. Power hungry authority figures out to get him. He doesn't know what DB and Shane have against him. They didn't draft The Club, and now he has to face five other men to prve he should face Dean Ambrose when he is the obvious choice. But no matter... Without The Club he'll beat up Bray Wyatt, he'll beat up Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, and Apollo Crews. Then he will do his most favorite thing.. BEAT UP JOHN CENA.
PROMO: Bray Wyatt, The Eater of Worlds, says that change is inevitable. All things revolve around him, tonight five men will fall, and he will soon have the whole world in his hands.
SIX PACK CHALLENGE: John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. AJ Styles vs. Apollo Crews
The winner of this match goes on to face Dean Ambrose at SummerSlam for the WWE Championship.
My pick: Bray Wyatt
RESULT: Dolph Ziggler wins via pin fall.
THOUGHTS: Huh.. I was not expecting this at all.. I like Dolph and all but I am little disappointed. I would've liked to see Bray, John, or AJ go. But Dolph Ziggler vs. Dean Ambrose will headline SummerSlam for SmackDown Live.
The night ends with Dolph and Dean staring each other down as Shane and Daniel Bryan come out to congratulate them.
