WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: ROMAN DOESN'T GET PAID BY THE HOUR, NUMBER ONE CONTENDER, OTIS OUTSMARTS MIZ THIS TIME, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2020-09-11 21:57:00

We start off wit a look back at last week's episode of Smackdown.

We are in Orlando, Florida and your announcers are Michael Cole and Corey Graves.

Universal Champion Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring with his special counsel Paul Heyman.

Paul says he has been authorized to enlighten you on some history.  Two weeks ago, we let the secret out of the bag and told everyone what only the two of them know.  Two days later, Roman Reigns wrecked everyone and he left as the Universal Champion.  Last Friday, your tribal chief said to tell you everything.  He laid all of his cards on the table and on that same night, his bloodline and family, Jey Uso stepped up.  Not only did Jey emerge as the only benefactor of a Fatal Four Way, he dethroned a king, he braved a Brogue, and he solved a Riddle to become the number one contender for the Universal Championship.  Paul says he has been given the opportunity to introduce that number one contender.  He may be his cousin, but he should be his blood brother . . .Jey Uso.

Jey makes his way to the ring.  

Jey says Paul goes way back with his family so he has some love for him.  Jey thanks Paul because he gets to compete against his blood for the Universal Championship.

Paul apologizes for interrupting.  Paul says all of the appreciation should go to your cousin.  This was Roman's idea when Big E went down.  Paul says he did what your tribal chief wanted.  

Roman says Jey doesn't have to thank him because they are blood.  Years, we have thought about this.  Roman says he is proud of Jey.  The whole family is proud of you.  You earned this and you are going to be in the main event.  You are going to take a huge payday home.  This is your moment.  At Clash of Champions, it won't be your moment.  Like when we were kids, I am going to whoop your ass.  This needs to stay on my shoulder for our family to be where it is.  After I whoop your ass, it will all be love.

Jey says they aren't kids now.

Baron Corbin comes out and says this was a set up.  You pulled some strings to get a hand picked opponent for your first title defense and he is your cousin.  This is a classic case of nepotism and it makes him sick.  Baron says he hates when someone walks around and abuses their power.

Sheamus interrupts and he interrupts his trip to go fishmongering to say that this stinks.  Big E took an unfortunate spill when he showed him where his car was.  IT should have been a Triple Threat match but then strings are pulled and it is a Fatal Four Way.

Jey asks if Sheamus is asking for time to prepare.  Why not you prepare for a tag match with him and Big Cuz.  It can be Blood versus Butt Mud.  Sheamus is sent to the floor and Jey with a punch and he sends Corbin shoulder first into the ring post.

Roman leaves the ring without saying anything.

Sami Zayn is in the truck and he is complaining about the graphic for the Intercontiental Title match and he wants it changed but he kills the power. 

We go to commercial.

Match Number One:  AJ Styles versus Jeff Hardy for the Intercontinental Title

Sami Zayn interrupts the introduction and says this is not for the Intercontinental Championship because he won the title.  He never lost the title.  For personal reasons, I took a few months off and the WWE crowns a sham champion.  I am back now.  This is not a title match.  This is an exhibition match and he wants it official.

Adam Pearce and security show up and he says that they are here to get Sami out of here.  Sami agrees to leave but he says that everyone should be ashamed.

Styles attacks Hardy before the bell rings and he kicks Jeff in the back and the leg.  

Hardy with a kick and Twist of Fate once the bell rings.  Hardy goes up top and misses a Swanton when Styles moves.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Styles sends Hardy to the floor.  AJ kicks Hardy on the floor.  Styles breaks the referee's count and then goes back to the floor to kick Hardy again.  Hardy pushes Styles off the steps and AJ hits the ring steps.  Hardy with a leg lariat off the steps but both men hit the ringside barrier hard.  Hardy with a clothesline and reverse atomic drop. AJ blocks the leg drop and pushes Hardy away.  Hardy with a back elbow and Hardy hits Whisper in the Wind for a near fall.  

Hardy with a kick but Styles avoids a Twist of Fate and hits an ushigoroshi for a near fall.  Styles calls for the Styles Clash and Hardy blocks it and hits a double leg take down double leg drop and drop kick.  Hardy with a splash for a near fall.  Styles with elbows to the knee but Hardy with a mule kick.  Hardy misses a hesitation kick in the corner when Styles moves.  AJ goes to the apron.  Styles sets for the Phenomenal Forearm but Zayn pulls Styles off the apron and the referee calls for the bell.

Winner:  AJ Styles (by disqualification) [Hardy retains championship]

After the match, Zayn sends Styles into the ringside barrier and Zayn with a Helluva Kick on Hardy.  Sami leaves with his title belt.

We see Jey Uso in the back talking while Roman Reigns looks like he would rather be anywhere else.

Jeff Hardy finally gets up after Sami Zayn's attack.  Hardy collapses on the ramp as we go to commercial.

We are back with a look at Jeff Hardy collapsing before the commercial break.

Alyse Ashton is in the back and she says that it was dehydration that Jeff Hardy suffered from.

AJ Styles shows up and says this has to stop.  Jeff says he is the champ, but he cheated.  Sami disappeared for months.  Who is the true IC Champ?  AJ says he can beat Sami Zayn and he can beat Jeff Hardy.  He does not care when or how, but he will prove that AJ Styles is the true, one and only Intercontinental Champion.

Michael Cole mentions the Brand to Brand Invitational and he mentions what Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura did on Raw.  We take a look at what happened.

Cesaro and Nakamrua are in the Champions Lounge and Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins show up.  Angelo says they were checking out the champions' lounge.  

Cesaro says they have a match so they don't have time for this nonsense.

Angelo says you can have your match and we will make sure everything is okay in here.  They can also scout their match for next week.

Cesaro tells them not to break anything and then Nakamura tells them not to touch anything.

Kalisto says watching LInce and Metalik displaying their lucha work over WWE made him proud but the tag titles were out of reach.  As the leader of the Lucha House Party, the tag titles will be theirs soon.

Jeff Hardy is in the medical office and Sami Zayn asks if it is more than fluids that Jeff Hardy needs.  Jeff attacks Sami as we go to commercial.

Match Number Two:  Kalisto and Gran Metalik (with Lince Dorado) versus Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura in a Non Title Match

Metalik and Cesaro start things off and Cesaro with a knee but he mises a splash and then Metalik with a satellite head scissors.  Metalik with a kick and then he hits a springboard rana.  Kalisto tags in and hits a splash off Metalik's shoulders for a near fall.  Nakamura gets in Kalisto's way and Cesaro with a clothesline to the back.  Nakamura with a knee and snap mare followed by a knee drop for a near fall.  Kalisto is sent into the turnbuckles and Nakamura chokes him.  Cesaro tags in and hits a running European uppercut into the corner for a near fall.
