WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: ALMAS AND MYSTERIO TWO OUT OF THREE FALLS, BRYAN AND STYLES, TONY CHIMMEL, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-01-22 21:58:00

We are in Wichita, Kansas and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.

Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring.

Becky says it is good to be back.  She says there is nothing more that she likes doing than stand in this ring and fight, but the Man has something to say.  There was a time when no one was paying attention to her.  Now everyone has an opinion about how The man should be acting and what The Man should be doing.  Becky says the only thing The Man should be doing is main eventing Wrestlemania . . . and slapping the heads of everyone getting in her way.

She says that starts in five days at the Royal Rumble.  Asuka. . . she has watched Asuka clean out NXT, steamroll her way through this and she is one of the best in the world.  Becky says she is better.  Becky says that Asuka never beat her for that title and that it is not eating Asuka up tells Becky everything she knows about her as a woman.  She and all of the others are warming them on the fire that she lit.  That all changes on Sunday when she takes her title back.  She dethroned the queen and she will break the Empress because she will walk through fire and she will walk through hell. . . 

Asuka's music interrupts and she makes her way to the ring.

Asuka speaks in Japanese.

Before anything else can happen, Charlotte Flair's music interrupts and Charlotte makes her way to the ring.

Charlotte says as much as she is enjoying this match, nothing will be more exciting on Sunday than her throwing 29 women over the top rope and winning the Royal Rumble.   You talk about the choices.  Ronda versus Sasha.  She has beaten Sasha more times than she can talk.  She destroyed Ronda.  Then you have Asuka versus Becky.  Last year, I broke Asuka's undefeated streak.  Becky . . . The Man, who may have owned her for the last few months, but Charlotte says she has owned this division for 4 years and she is the main event.

Asuka attacks Becky from behind and Becky fights back.  Charlotte watches from the floor as officials make their way to the ring to separate Becky and Asuka.  That lasts as long as it takes them to get to the floor.  Asuka sends Becky into the ringside barrier and then she kicks and punches Becky.  Becky with knees and then Becky sends Asuka over the announce table.  Becky whips Asuka with her jacket.Becky comes off the announce table with a forearm.  

We go to commercial.

We are back and Bekcy and Asuka are still fighting but it has moved to the back.

After the match, Jimmy Uso makes his way to the ring to check on his wife after her loss.  

Rey Mysterio says in 2006 he was in the Royal Rumble for more than an hour on his way to victory.  He used every trick in the bag to stay alive.  His speed allowed him to avoid the bigger opponents.   His training gave him the stamina to win.  Sunday is about history but tonight is about respect.  He gained respect last week against Andrade until he used a shortcut to win.  Tonight, the field is evened without Zelina Vega at ringside.  To get respect, you need to earn it.

Miz is in the back and Shane McMahon joins him to walk into commercial.

We take a look back at what happened last week between Samoa Joe and Mustafa Ali when they were supposed to meet in the ring.

Ali says he used to run up and down these streets as a police officer to protect and serve.  He learned an important lesson.  Eyes do not lie.  Samoa Joe decided to jump him from behind.  Joe kept asking him 'Do you understand'.  Ali says he understands but it wasn't all of the kicks and punches or having his head cracked against the ring post that made him understand.  It was the eyes.  Your eyes told him that he was not worthy to be in the ring with him and that he was not worthy.  Ali tells Joe to look into his eyes.  Ali says he has no fear, only purpose.  His eyes show that there is nowhere to run or hide.  Ali says he can beat Joe.

We see the medical staff working on Shane and Miz.

Vince McMahon watches from the back as he is in the room with the monitor.

We go to commercial.
