WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: NEW MATCHES FOR BACKLASH, A SIX MAN MAIN EVENT, FASHION POLICE GO UK, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-05-09 22:00:00

We are back and Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring.

Dolph says you are all hypocrites.  For eight years, he has come out to the ring and did what he has done.  He has been a multiple time champion and he has headlined pay per views.  Dolph says he is a movie star.  Do you appreciate him?  You treat him like a contagious disease.  Who do you cheer for?   You cheer for someone who has never had a match on Smackdown.  He has never had match one here.  The crowd chants 'NXT' and Ziggler says this will be edited out (and it wasn't).  He says that Nakamura's music plays and you sing along.

Dolph says he suffers for his art in the ring and he does not call himself 'The Artist'.  Dolph says that is pathetic.  Dolph says he is the strongest man who ever stepped in the ring.  He did it for himself and he did not need any of you.  You never cared.  You will care now.

Dolph tells Nakamura to get out here NOW!

Nakamura's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Dolph says enough of the theatrics.  It has been almost a month of you sashaying to the ring.  If you are going to stand toe to toe in the ring with him, it is time for you to either put up or . . . 

Nakamura takes the mic and he tells Dolph to SHUT UP.  You want to see what he can do?  He tells Dolph to get ready.  He will show Dolph now.

Nakamura takes off his jacket and there is a refere in the ring.

Ziggler takes off his jacket and Dolph says nope.  He says we do this when he says so.  He will expose Nakamura for the fraud he is at Backlash.

Ziggler throws his jacket at Nakamura and then Ziggler with a knee.  Nakamura with a forearm and knees to Ziggler.  

Ziggler goes to the floor.

Sami Zayn is with Randy Orton and AJ Styles and Sami wants to talk about strategy.  Sami says that Randy is the Viper and Vipers strike hard, they strike fast, and they strike first.  Sami says that Kevin Owens is the biggest thorn in AJ's side.  Sami says he will brief AJ later about Kevin.  He wants to make sure that they are all on the same page.  Sami wants everyone to close their eyes and visualize.  Sami opens his eyes and Randy and AJ are gone.

We go to commercial.

We have a video feature for the return of the New Day to Smackdown in 8 Bit glory.

Jey keeps saying twelve days while Jimmy talks about things that Tyler and Fandango can do.

We are back and Brian Kendrick says that Akira Tozawa thought he taught him last week when Tozawa attacked him.  It shows that Tozawa has been listening.  Tonight, we will find out who the teacher is.

Mojo Rawley is with some kids in the back and he wants to tell them a story about the Eighth Wonder of the World.  Mojo says he can talk about his undefeated streak or facing Hulk Hogan, but he wants to talk about a boy who was different growing up.  He turned it around and motivated him to become a legend.  Mojo unveils the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy.

Tom Phillips talks about Rusev and we get his latest comments about Shane McMahon.  He reminds us that he demands a title match at Money in the Bank or he will go home to Bulgaria.  Rusev says he has not heard anything from Shane and that is worse than being turned down.  Rusev says he will get an answer next week when he appears on Smackdown.
