SmackDown

Card for next week's WWE SmackDown

Another week, another SmackDown, and what a night it was! The civil war between The Bloodline is just getting started, but we’ve already got a massive episode of SmackDown to look forward to next week. Let’s take a look at everything that’s coming up:

  • Roman Reigns returns
  • Logan Paul appears on The Grayson Waller Effect
  • Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair for the WWE Women’s Championship
  • Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens vs. Pretty Deadly for the Undisputed Tag Team Championships
Solo Sikoa

Solo Sikoa destroys Sheamus and forces the match to end

We come back with Solo in control, getting prepared to deliver the running hip attack in the corner. Sheamus explodes and hits a clothesline to get out of the situation, and now both men are floored.

Solo with some rights, but Sheamus hits back with some of his own, followed by some clotheslines. Sheamus with a body slam now. He hits the Irish curse backbreaker, but Sheamus is hesitating to follow up because of his wounded lower back.

The Celtic Warrior finally gets the Ten Beats of the Bodhran in, forcing Solo to crumble beneath himself. Sheamus goes for the Brogue but he eats a superkick. Sheamus comes off the ropes with a knee to Solo’s face, but it’s only enough for another two count.

Sheamus puts the dead weight of Solo onto his shoulders and gives the White Noise for another close two. What will end this one?! Sheamus can’t hit the Celtic Cross, which allows Solo to use the Samoan Spike, knocking Sheamus out of the ring. Solo uses the Uranage onto the table to Sheamus.

Solo uses the running hip attack on Sheamus, blasting him through and forcing the match to end abruptly. Solo wins by KO, but he’s not satisfied. He starts destroying the EMTs and security, and then pulls Sheamus toward himself.

Here come The Usos! Sikoa looks ready, but The Usos are fresh and ready to go. Tandem superkicks come, leaving Solo laid out. The Usos stand tall as WWE SmackDown goes off the air this week.

Solo Sikoa

Solo Sikoa vs. Sheamus

Sheamus and Solo immediately come to blows, with Sheamus taking over and putting Solo in the corner with uppercuts. Solo with some abdomen and head punches to Sheamus, but The Celtic Warrior returns with some kicks. He goes for a Brogue Kick, but Solo immediately ducks to the outside of the ring.

Back inside, Solo takes control and hits some forearms to the kidney on Sheamus. He keeps on him with shoulders to the back, but Sheamus comes back with an elbow and some more strikes. These guys are just brawling it out here! Sheamus with a hard clothesline and then the ten beats of the Bodhran come next, but, no, Solo battles his way out of it.

Sheamus meets him on the apron and puts him in a fireman’s carry. Solo escapes and shoves Sheamus into the ring post. He then sweeps the leg out from under him and hits a Samoan drop.

Bianca Belaire

Bianca Belair is banned from ringside next week

Backstage, we see Adam Pearce meeting up with Bianca Belair. He understands that Belair wants to be at ringside next week, but he wonders what will happen if one of them take a shot at her. Pearce doesn’t want to do it, but he bans Belair from ringside. Belair clearly doesn’t trust Pearce’s decision with this one.

Sheamus

The main event is next!

Sheamus and Solo Sikoa will collide after out break. It’s main event time!

Charlotte Flair

Charlotte Flair vs. Lacey Evans

Lacey Evans makes her entrance as we return. The bell rings and Charlotte and Evans lock up. Evans uses some hair to back Flair up, but she’s met with a shoulder tackle. She nails a kick on Evans, and then uses some chops. (Flair just said, “I left my dad at home!” in reference to the storyline between Evans and Flair a while back). Evans takes over control again, once again using the hair to drive Flair into the mat.

She goes for a moonsault off of the second rope but Charlotte avoids her and uses a backbreaker/flatliner combo on Evans. She taunts a bit and then runs over and connects with a big boot. The figure-eight follows, giving The Queen the win. Flair is victorious!

Flair refuses to let go, but Asuka appears out of nowhere with a dropkick to Flair’s face. Asuka goes on the attack and does some random salutes of her own to taunt Charlotte.

Charlotte Flair

"The Queen" set to be in action next

Here comes Charlotte Flair! She will be in action next against Lacey Evans.

Elton Prince

Pretty Deadly steal a win on the way to their title shot

We come back with Wilson and Ford fighting near the top turnbuckle. Wilson headbutts Ford and then tries for a back superplex, but Ford shifts his weight and lands with a splash on Kit. Dawkins and Prince tag in at the same time, but Angelo starts taking everyone out.

Angelo with a spinning clothesline and a step-up enziguri. He hits his signature neckbreaker for a close two count, and then tags in Ford. Dawkins tackles Prince into Ford, who turns it into a back suplex! That was cool!

Dawkins uses another shoulder tackle on Wilson on the outside, allowing Ford to hit a uranage on Prince. The Street Profits go for their finisher together, but Pretty Deadly end up pinning Angelo with Wilson holding Prince’s feet on the ropes for leverage

MontezFord

Street Profits vs. Pretty Deadly

Wilson and Ford start the match out, taunting each other a bit. Ford with a couple of headlock takeovers, but Wilson twists out of it and then comes to Ford with a shoulder tackle. It’s ineffective, and Dawkins tags in and shoulder tackles Wilson. Prince is tagged in and Pretty Deadly nails a double shoulder tackle followed by a splash/leg drop combo for a two.

Prince with an uppercut. He boots Dawkins in the face, but Angelo hits a hard right and tags in Ford. Montez with dropkicks to both men and then a chop to Prince. He rips off the top Prince was wearing and then tries it on before hitting a dive over the ropes.

Grayson Waller

The Grayson Waller Effect featuring Pretty Deadly

We return with Grayson Waller on the mic, introducing the crowd to his show. Waller says he’s the hottest new superstar in WWE, so it makes sense that his guest are the hottest new tag team in WWE. Pretty Deadly come down to the ring.

Waller says Elton Prince and Kit Wilson deserve special chairs, which they thank him for. Wilson and Prince say The Grayson Waller show is much better than the KO Show. Waller brings up their upcoming WWE Tag Team Title match in their home country of London. Prince says that they’re annoyed they aren’t given the respect they deserve, with people asking how they earned that title shot last week on SD.

Prince says he and Wilson are on the same page and always have been. Waller says he’s not surprised, but he wants to talk about last week. He praises them for beating those 5 other teams to earn their title shot. Wilson says they did it with blood, sweat, and tears.

Prince praises The Brawling Brutes, but in the end, they won. They talk about LWO, asking what their name means. “We beat them!” they keep saying. Pretty Deadly is interrupted by The Street Profits, who say they are the proper guys to deliver the smoke to Pretty Deadly.

Liv Morgan

Liv Morgan returns!!!

Rousey gets on the mic and asks Raquel where she’s going. She asked why she even came down to the ring in the first place. Rodriguez tells her that she’s her watching because she wants a rematch for the titles they never lost.

Baszler asks who “we” is. LIV MORGAN IS BACK! Liv and Raquel immediately staredown Rousey and Baszler. The new tag team champions cower away as the babyfaces celebrate Liv’s return.

Ronda Rousey

We officially have undisputed WWE Women's Tag Team Champions

Rousey is in control of the match when we get back, but it’s quickly changed up and Alba gets some strikes. Rousey forces her down and secures in the ankle lock. Fyre with a step-up enziguri, allowing her to inch toward Dawn. Shayna tags in and cuts her off. She gets booted off of Fyre, allowing Alba to tag in Dawn. Dawn with a sequence of moves, including a high kick and a saito back suplex. She climbs to the top rope and hits a wonky meteora for a close two count.

As the referee is distracted, Rousey gets a cheap shot on Dawn, allowing Shayna to use the coquina clutch. Fyre breaks it up with a senton splash from the top rope. They sends Rousey outside of the ring and want the team finisher, but it’s futile. Rousey and Baszler both use their submission finishers simultaneously to win the match.

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler vs. Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn

We see Rousey & Baszler enter the ring first, followed by Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn. The bell rings and Baszler immediately beats down Fyre. Alba gets an elbow in on Shayna and tags in Isla Dawn. Dawn ties Shayna up in the ropes, allowing Alba to get a kick to her face.

Rousey tags in and starts destroying Dawn with arm drags and some punches to the face. Dawn with a boot, which allows Alba to do a blind tag. She catches Rousey on the outside with a hard right and a two count. Dawn and Fyre trade tags once more, hitting several maneuvers on Rousey together. Alba puts Rousey on her shoulders, but as Dawn climbs to the top rope, she’s shoved off. Rousey with a poisonrana on Fyre as we head to commercial.

Sheamus

Sheamus challenges Solo Sikoa to a match

Backstage, Adam Pearce helps Ridge Holland by calling for medics. Sheamus shows up and demands to fight Solo Sikoa tonight, but Pearce tells him to wait so he can take care of what’s going on.

Sheamus won’t wait. He comes out to the arena and says he want’s a bleedin’ fight! He tells Sikoa to show up in the ring later on tonight so he can kick his a*s like he wants to.

Solo Sikoa

Solo Sikoa is feeling some type of way

Knight disrespectfully tries to rip the mask off of Rey, which prompts Santos Escobar to run down for the save. He chases Knight off and hugs Rey.

We see Solo Sikoa walking down the hallway backstage, but Ridge Holland nearly bumps into him. He is immediately Samoan Spiked and says he’s not in the mood tonight.

LA Knight

Knight gets the win on the way to MITB

Knight is in control when we come back, but he’s eventually hurricanrana’d into the corner turnbuckle. Mysterio with a senton and a springboard crossbody for a close two count. Knight with a body slam that gets him the momentum back.

Knight with a jumping elbow drop and a close two count on the luchador. Knight catches Rey in the air, but Mysterio turns it into a tornado DDT for another two. Step-up enziguri from Rey puts Knight into the ropes, but he catches Rey on the 619 attempt.

Rey reverses Knight a few times before getting hit with the BFT, Blunt Force Trauma, for the win tonight.

Rey Mysterio

Rey Mysterio vs. LA Knight

Knight immediately takes that advantage, hitting rights on Rey and then shoulders to the abdomen in the corner. He hits a hard Irish whip on Rey and then taunts him a bit. Knight misses a right, and Mysterio follows up with a dropkick. Knight comes off the ropes with a diving shoulder tackle for a close two count.

Rey gets a kick on Knight and then pus him in the corner turnbuckles with a leg scissors. He strikes Knight with punches in the corner, and ends up connecting with a 619. As Rey starts climbing to the top, Knight rolls to the apron but is then kicked off. Rey with a sliding splash to the outside on Knight as we go to a break.

LA Knight

LA Knight is in action next

We see a replay of last week when LA Knight interrupted Santos Escobar and Rey Mysterio last week, leading to a match that Santos won against Escobar. Next is Knight vs. Mysterio!

Jey Uso

The Usos are ready for a civil war

The crowd chants for The Usos as Jey starts his intro. He says “The Bloodline” for a moment, but then corrects himself and says “The Usos” are now in your city!

Jimmy asks Jey how he is, and Jey says he’s being 100 right now when he talks about how family isn’t supposed to fight like this. They are always supposed to be there for one another. Jimmy thinks Jey made the absolute perfect choice last week. They tell each other they love one another.

Jey says he still loves Roman Reigns, but, for three years, they did everything he asked. But where messed up at is when he disrespected them.  Jimmy says they were raised on respect and it was huge, and they fell in line and became the most dominant faction in WWE. Once Roman made it seem like they ain’t worth nothing, they left Roman on the island of relevancy all alone.

The one they don’t want to trust is outside the family: the “biggest snake of them all,” Paul Heyman. Jimmy asks how Paul could act as they love them but then drive a wedge between them. Now, Jey says they’re coming for all of ’em. In London, Civil War starts. Jey is confident that Reigns and Solo Sikoa will be welcomed to the Uso Penitentary.

SmackDown

WWE SmackDown starts now!

Y’all ready for the action?! WWE SmackDown starts RIGHT NOW!

We see a replay of what happened last Friday when The Usos finally split from The Bloodline. Michael Cole and Wade Barrett welcome us to the show tonight, and we’re getting things underway.

First out tonight is The Usos!

LA Knight

LA Knight says you have yet to see the best MITB cash-in

We’re just about a week out from Money in the Bank 2023, and among those competing on the male side of things, one of the fan-favorites to win the multi-man match is the rising LA Knight. The brash, loud-mouth star is confident in himself, too, catching up with WWE.com earlier today and telling them how his eventual cash-in with the briefcase will be the best yet. Of course, he has to win the match first.

What a stupid question. But I’ll tell you what, I’ll give you a more intelligent answer, how about that? Because you’re thinking about who’s my favorite; do you think I give a good damn who over there is winning MITB? Do you think I care to look back at who’s won Money in the Bank in the past? Oh, good for you, you won MITB … Here’s the deal — no matter who’s won Money in the Bank in the past pales in comparison to who’s going to win MITB in the present because any of them want to hold a candle to me? Go ahead and try. Nah, it doesn’t work that way because the greatest cash-in you’ll ever see — that I’ll ever see — has yet to happen.”

SmackDown

Card for the 6/23 WWE SmackDown

We’re less than an hour away from a new WWE SmackDown, so let’s take a look at what the show has in store for us tonight. Not only will we witness what’s next for The Bloodline after The Usos finally departed from the faction, but the hype going into Money in the Bank continues.

You can see the full card for the 6/23 WWE SmackDown below:

  • WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler vs. WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre in a Title Unification match
  • Cameron Grimes vs. Baron Corbin
  • Bayley puts her Money In the Bank spot on the line against Shotzi
  • LA Knight vs. Butch vs. Santos Escobar in a Triple Threat for Money In the Bank momentum
  • What’s next for The Usos, Roman Reigns, and Solo Sikoa?
SmackDown

Good evening!

Good evening, everyone! Let’s get this party started with a new episode of SmackDown starting in the next hour!  We’ve almost arrived in Money in the Bank 2023, signifying that the storylines are going to heat up more than ever. Especially the story between The Bloodline, which is coming to a head in a “Civil War” at MITB between The Usos and Roman/Solo Sikoa.

In the realm of news, it appears the Iyo Sky is the frontrunner to win the Women’s Mone in the Bank briefcase next Saturday. Of course, a higher-up like Vince McMahon can change the direction of this outcome at any time, but, for now, it’s being reported that Sky will walk out of the MITB premium live event with the briefcase in tow.
