WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: DANIEL BRYAN'S FICKLE MANIFESTO, A CONTRACT SIGNING, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2018-12-04 21:59:00

We start off with a look back at how we got the Smackdown Women's Championship Match for TLC.

We are in Austin, Texas and your announcers are Corey Graves, Tom Phillips, and Byron Saxton.

Paige is in the ring with the official contract signing carpet and table.  Around the ring are some tables, ladders, and chairs.

Paige says that Smackdown is not just the land of opportunity, it is the place where history is made.  Paige says she is honored to sanction the TLC match for the Smackdown Women's Title and it is not a normal TLC match, it is a Triple Threat Match.

Paige brings out Asuka first.   Out next is Charlotte Flair.  The final person to come out is the Smackdown Women's Champion Becky Lynch.

Becky starts off the talking and she talks about history.  It must be a Tuesday because the Man makes history every time she walks into the ring.  She will do the exact same thing at TLC.  Being put through a table or having a chair hit her in the back or being crushed by a ladder is nothing compared to where she came from.  Becky says she does not care how you got into this match and she will do whatever it takes to win.

Charlotte tells Becky to change the song because it is the same one every week.  She is given the opportunity?  Spin it however you want.  Charlotte says she picked up the ball that Becky dropped at Survivor Series and destroyed Ronda with one kendo stick.  Charlotte says it took one punch by Nia to break your face.  Charlotte tells Becky to imagine what she will do with tables, ladders, and chairs.

Asuka stops Becky and Charlotte and she tells Charlotte that Becky already you, but Becky never beat her.  Asuka says you chose wrong at Survivor Series.  She would have beaten Ronda.  At TLC, she will beat Becky.  

Charlotte asks Asuka if she was going to beat Ronda Rousey.  Charlotte reminds Asuka that she beat her at Wrestlemania and broke her streak. 

Asuka says that Charlotte got lucky one time.

Becky says the truth is none of you can beat Ronda Rousey and neither of you can beat her.

Becky signs the contract and leaves the ring.

Charlotte asks Paige if she is going to let the champ leave.  Charlotte says that Becky is all talk these days.  She will beat Becky and Asuka again.

Asuka says something in Japanese.  

Charlotte tells Asuka she shattered the mystique at Wrestlemania and she will finish Asuka at TLC.

Paige has Charlotte sign the contract.

Asuka offers to break Charlotte right now.

Mandy Rose comes out with Sonya Deville.  Manyd asks if this is how you want to make history?  With these two women?  These undeserving women?  What about the two women you groomed for stardom in the WWE?  Mandy reminds Charlotte she lost at Survivor Series. 

Sonya says it was a fluke that Asuka won last week.  Sonya says she made one tiny mistake.  Sonya promises that won't happen again.

Mandy says if you want to see fire and desire, you are looking at it Baby Girl.  Mandy asks what happens if Asuka and Charlotte don't make it to TLC?

Paige suggests that they have a tag match.

We go to commercial.

Shane McMahon is in his office and Miz wants to know why he is hosting MIzTV with Daniel Bryan. 

Shane says it is because Miz is the host of MizTV.

Miz says they need to do the job that he was 2/3 born to do and Shane was 1/3 born to do, become the best tag team in the world.

Shane tells Miz that he needs to get the answers out of Daniel Bryan. 

Miz tells Shane if he does it, Shane owes him.  Shane says he doesn't owe Miz anything.
