WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: NEW FACES ON SMACKDOWN, WHO IS THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER?, RANDY ORTON IN ACTION, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-04-11 21:55:00

We are in Boston, Massachusetts and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, and John Layfield.

We begin with the champion of the United States Kevin Owens making his way to the ring.

Kevin welcomes everyone to the new Kevin Owens Show.  He says Smackdown just got a huge upgrade because he is here now.  Kevin says he brought the United States Championship with him.  He says he knows it might be confusing to some of you that he is the United States Champion when he is from Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  You should be thankful that this title is in good hands because it is a known fact that Canada is much better than the United States.  It is a known fact that Canadians make better athletes than Americans.  Kevin asks if you need proof of that, the Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins every time.  Kevin asks if you are mad about that.  Kevin starts to speak in French and then he remembers that the morons in the crowd only speak one language.  He says if anyone has a problem with him, get in the ring.  He says he can beat the hell out of anyone in this arena and anyone in the back.  That is what he is going to do.  Kevin says he is not here for any of you.  He is not here for anyone in the back.  He is not here for anyone watching at home.  Kevin says he is here for himself and he is here to be the new face of America.

Baron Corbin comes out and he has something to say.  He tells Kevin that he can beat up everyone in this arena.  Baron says he is sure that Kevin can beat up most of that locker room, but Kevin, you can't beat him up. 

Baron says he beat the Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose so bad he went and hid on Raw.  Then Dean beat you so bad last night that you tucked your tail and ran to Smackdown.  Baron says if he beat Dean and Dean beat you, then he will have no problem with Kevin.  Baron says he is owed a title match and since Kevin is the only one with a title, then he will beat Kevin and take it.

Kevin tells Baron he has some bad news.  First, you are delusional.  Second, it does not matter who you beat because you do not deserve a shot at his title.

Sami Zayn interrupts and he makes his way to the ring as the newest member of Smackdown.

Kevin says this cannot be real and that Sami cannot be here.

Sami says this is very real and he is here to announce that Sami Zayn is finally on Smackdown.  

Baron says that nobody cares that you are here.

AJ Styles comes out to the ring.

AJ says this is not the Kevin Owens Show, this is Smackdown.  AJ says it is not about the Underdog from the Underground.  It is not about the Lone Wolf.  This is about him.  AJ says this is about the House that AJ Styles Built and he is still here.

Daniel Bryan comes out and he says it was announced before the Superstar Shake Up that Kevin Owens would defend the United States Title at Payback and the winner will become an official member of Smackdown Live.  That means the title will not be defended on Smackdown until after Payback.  The good news is one of you will face Kevin Owens or Chris Jericho for the United States Title.  There will be a Number One Contender Triple Threat Match.  Baron Corbin versus Sami Zayn versus AJ Styles.

Randy Orton walks in the back as we go to commercial.

Match Number One:  Erick Rowan versus Randy Orton in a Non Title Match

They lock up and Rowan misses a punch but Orton does not miss with a kick and then he sends Rowan into the turnbuckles and punches him.  Orton with a kick but Rowan with a back elbow.  Rowan with punches in the corner and then he puts Randy on the turnbuckles and punches him again.  Rowan goes up for a superplex but Orton with punches and he sends Rowan to the mat with head butts.  Orton with an elbow to a charging Rowan and then Orton with a power slam.  Orton with the Garvin Stomp.  Rowan goes to the floor and Orton follows.  Rowan charges at Orton but Orton moves and Rowan hits the ring steps.

Orton sets for the IEDDT and he hits it.  Orton looks around and he sets for the twist to the mat to set up the RKO.  

The lights go out and Bray Wyatt appears.  He tells Randy that he is over here.  He asks if you can smell it.  He says it is fear and Randy reeks of it.  He says their paths will cross again.  He says he is the nagging conscience of a world full of monsters.  He will see Randy soon in the House of Horrors.

The lights go out again and when they come back on, Rowan is on the floor and Rowan hits Orton with the ring steps.

The referee calls for the bell.
