WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: SOMEONE NEEDS TO APOLOGIZE, JOE SETS HIS SIGHTS ON GOLD, TAG MATCH, TRIOS WOMEN'S ACTION, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-05-01 21:58:00

We are back and Renee Young is in the ring and she brings out AJ Styles.

Renee asks AJ about the match on Sunday being no disqualification and whether it will help him on Sunday.

AJ says Nakamura can play his games because that is the benefit of a No Disqualification match.  His goal is to defend the gold while Nakamura seems to be going after the wrong jewels. 

Renee asks AJ about the apology that Nakamura wants from him for the attack after the match.

AJ says Nakamura should be sucking sand in the Saudi Arabian desert.  Nakamura ruined his Wrestlemania, then he took away a match against Daniel Bryan.  Nakamura then went after his friend and tried to injure him.  On Sunday, you can throw the rules the window because he can break them too.  AJ says low blows will be the least of Nakamura's worries.  You will find pieces of Shinsuke in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.  The look on Nakamura's face will be the look of torture.

Renee asks about an apology.

Samoa Joe interjects himself into the segment and he appears on the stage.

Joe says AJ is making a spectacle out of himself filled with rage and anger.  He has lost focus on what is dangerous around him.  You are not focused on the right match.  The match you should be focused on is the one when his hand is raised in victory after proving that Roman Reigns is a failure.  The same Roman who lost in Saudi Arabia.  Brock was the first out of that cage and Brock is still Universal Champion.

Joe turns his attention to AJ.  You need to make peace with one destiny that is coming your way.  After he is done putting the Big Dog to sleep, whether it is you or Shinsuke Nakamura who is victorious on Sunday, he is coming after the winner for the title.  Believe That.

Shinsuke Nakamura's music plays and he waits for Nakamura to come out from the back, but we cut to the ring and Nakamura is in the ring with his forearm in the general area of AJ's genitals.

Nakamura slaps AJ in the back of the head and then kicks him in the head.  Nakamura sets for Kinshasa but he runs past AJ and then he hits it as he goes back the other way.

Becky Lynch is in the locker room and she is talking to herself.  She says she needs to make some adjustments.  She apologizes to Asuka for costing her the first match she had on Smackdown.  Asuka tells Becky to forget about last week because they get to hit back three times as hard.  Charlotte says Billie, Peyton, and Carmella think they are invincible, but they are annoying.  Charlotte says she is going to win back her title on Sunday and she is going to show Carmella about respect.

We go to commercial.

We take a look at Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose talking about Becky being Charlotte's side kick.  

Paige is in her office and Mandy and Sonya enter.  They hug.  Mandy says it is awesome that she is the General Manager.  Sonya says she knows why Paige called her in.  Sonya asks who is it going to be.

Paige says they already know.  She says Mandy gets the match and Mandy thinks she is getting a title match.  Paige tells Mandy she has to earn it.  Next week, Mandy will face Becky Lynch.  Mandy asks why aren't they getting special treatment.  Paige says Absolution is dead.

We go to commercial.
