WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: TITLE MATCHES, WILD CARD FEVER, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-05-07 21:59:00

We are in Louisville, Kentucky and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.

AJ Styles makes his way to the ring.

AJ says he missed Smackdown.  On Raw last night, Mr. McMahon instituted a Wild Card Rule for Raw and Smackdown.  What that means is if you are brave enough and fast enough, you can cross over to a rival brand.  You can be one of the four to crash a rival brand.  If that's the case, AJ says he was going to be the first to do it.  Smackdown is still the house that AJ Styles built.

Sami Zayn comes out and he says he does not want to be here.  He would rather be anywhere else than here on his day off than be surrounded on his day off by Kentucky Fried HIllbillies.  Sami says he knew that AJ would do this so he had to come to Smackdown to confront AJ about his toxic ego that has spiraled out of control.

AJ says his nose is burning and he is glad that Sami got out of the dumpster that Braun threw him into.  The least you could have done was take a shower.

Sami says it is funny to make fun of him because he smells.  Sami says he took a shower, but the smell does not come out that easily.  Sami says that is classic distraction.

The WWE Champion Kofi Kingston makes his way to the ring with Xavier Woods.  

Kofi says y'all gonna come out to have a party without inviting the New Day?  Kofi says he is hurt.  Kofi says he hopes AJ is not going to talk about his architectural contributions.  It is a great catchphrase but you do not live here any more.  Kofi says he wants to know what is AJ doing here tonight.

AJ says he wanted to come to Smackdown and return the favor to the champ.

Xavier tells AJ he might want to check himself before he wrecks himself.

Kofi says he is THE champ.  You came all the way to Smackdown and you stand in a Smackdown ring.  Kofi says he is in the same ring and he asks AJ what does he want to do about it.

Sami interrupts and he says he knows where this is going.  Sami says Kofi is not going to do what he thinks he is going to do.  He is not going to offer AJ a championship match tonight.  Sami asks Kofi if he is really thinking of doing this.  Sami says he loves Kofi and he will tell him the truth since no one else will.  Kofi, these people are not happy for you.  You got a taste of their affection and you are trying to please them at your detriment.  You are giving away WWE title matches when you don't have to.  If anyone deserves a title match, it is him.  WWE fans deserve a champion who will tell the truth whether you like it or not.

Kofi asks Sami what is that smell.  Xavier has the same question. He says Sami smells like his tenth grade sock drawer. 

Kofi says he defended the WWE Championship last night to prove that Wrestlemania was not a fluke.  He is a fighting champion and he will defend it against one of you two.  It does not matter because the result will be the same.  He will be your WWE Champion.

Kevin Owens is in his car and he says he is not starting off Smackdown because today is his birthday.  He doesn't want to have to deal with this crap on his birthday.  That is good news for Kofi but your good news ends at Money in the Bank when he takes the WWE Championship.  Happy birthday to me.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Kofi Kingston will defend the WWE Championship against AJ Styles and Sami Zayn.

Mustafa Ali says that in your darkest times you have to look for the light.  The light will show you the way.  The light shows you a path.  Sometimes that light looks too far away.  As long as you see the light, you must fight.  That contract will be hanging high above that ring and it will seem too far away.  As long as he sees that briefcase, he will fight.  He will fight for an opportunity that was ripped out of his hands earlier this year.  It can change his life.  He will get that chance again.  As long as you see that light, you can't stop.

Zelina Vega says in two weeks, must like the Kentucky Derby, thousands of spectators will gather to watch the Money in the Bank pay per view to see thoroughbreds at their peaks.  Unlike the Kentucky Derby, there is only one thoroughbred and it is Andrade.

Andrade says in less than two weeks, he will win the Money in the Bank ladder match.  He says he will become El Senor del Dinero en el Banco.  You will become envious of the success of Andrade.

Match Number One:  Mustafa Ali versus Andrade Almas (with Zelina Vega)

Almas with a chop but Ali with a super kick and Almas goes to the floor.  Ali with a kick.  Almas sends Ali into the timekeeper's area and he gets on the ringside barrier but Vega distracts ALi long enough to allow Almas to knock him off the ringside barrier.  Almas sends Ali into the ringside barrier and returns to the ring to break the count.  Almas with a rear chin lock.  Ali gets a boot up when Almas charges into the corner.  Ali goes to the apron and hits an enzuigiri.  Ali with a rolling X Factor for a near fall.  Almas gets a near fall.

Shane McMahon makes his way to the ring and he shuffles as only Shane can.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Shane is now in the ring and he shuffles before he speaks.  We see what happened on Raw with him and the Miz by the limo.

Shane says he is here to talk about the Smackdown Tag Team division, but he wants to digress for a moment.  Shane says he was brutally attacked by the Miz in a cowardly manner.  Not with his fists, but with a steel chair?  What human being hits another with a steel chair.  He says it is lamentable and deplorable.  Shane simplifies it and says it was disgusting.  Miz did not get the job done last night and he will not get it done at Money at the Bank.  

Shane talks about the tag team division.  The tag titles had to be vacated by the Hardys because Jeff is injured and he cannot compete.  It was at the hands of Lars Sullivan.  Who would be worthy to be Smackdown tag team champions.  Shane says he scoured the roster and it was looking at him on the page.  Shane introduces the worthy tag team . . .

Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan make their way to the ring.

Jimmy and Jey Uso make their way to the ring and they want to whoa things down.  

Shane wants to know why they are here since they are on Raw.

Jey says it is Roman's yard and they can slide through when they want.  Jimmy reminds Shane of the Uce's Wild rule.  Jey says they worked too hard to build the tag division just to hand them away.  Jimmy says you had to earn the titles.  The New Day, Bar, Hardys, and Usos earned it.  Shane even earned it when he beat them.  Jey says knowing the value and prestige of these tag titles, you are going to give the titles to Patrick and Spongebob, Ren and Stimpy, or Beavis and Butthead.  They want the titles put on the line.

Shane says you have to earn things and he says the match will happen and it will happen righ tnow.  He says he will enjoy watching these guys kick your butts back to Raw empty handed

Finn Balor appears and says he is thinking about winning Money in the Bank.  He will cash in and do something extraordinary.  He will be Intercontinental Title and WWE Title..
