WWE LIVE SmackDown Live Results 09/05/17 – London Invasion!!!
Last week on SmackDown Live, Kevin Owens was able to reclaim the WWE United States Championship. In doing so, he has sidelined Chris Jericho indefinitely. But what did his Backlash 2017 opposition AJ Styles have planned for him? How did the stars of the female division deal with the trio of the Welcoming Committee? Did Randy Orton get his championship belt back from Jinder Mahal, or did Mahal and The Bollywood Boyz have something else in store? This weeks edition of WWE SmackDown Live jumped across the pond to The O2 Arena in London, England. WDD will be inside The O2 Arena in London, England with the WWE LIVE SmackDown Live Results 09/05/17…
Smackdown Live kicks off with the WWE Champion Randy Orton in the ring. He address the Jinder Mahal problem. Jinder comes to the ring and proclaims he will take the title from Orton.
Kevin Owens then comes down and says he will take the title from Orton. I sense a theme here… AJ Styles is next down who talks about Owens. Followed by Baron Corbin who is immediately attacked by Sami Zyan.
A massive brawl happens and a six man tag is made for later. Nice and sensible way to open up Smackdown. Gives the three top stories chance to shine and develop. Good work WWE.
Becky Lynch vs Natalya
Charlotte, Naomi, Tamina and CarMella were ringside. Nattie wins with a roll up.
I like the female faction idea, hopefully all six will step up as a result.
The fashion police are up next. They do a hilarious segment dressed up as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson.
Erick Rowan vs Luke Harper
No idea why this match is happening no build or anything. However both men pulled off a great match. As singles stars they are lost on the same show. Stick back together as a tag team.
Winner: Erick Rown
Dolph Ziggler hits the ring and laughs at fans who cheer for a man who has never had a match. Shinshuke comes to the ring and challenges Dolph to a match tonight. Dolph cancels and instead challenges him for a match at Backlash. Dolph’ s “nah” was genius; a great play for his character.
Sami Zayn talks to AJ Styles and Randy Orton backstage. They both walk out.
Breezango vs Ascension
Finally some momentum for the tag team division with two teams stuck on the c shows.
Usos come down and chat rubbish to Breezango. They announce a title match at Backlash .
6 man tag match
Jinder Mahal, Baron Corbin & Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn, AJ Styles and Randy Orton
Naturally chaos ensues as everyone hits their finishers. Jinder hits his finisher and pins Randy Orton for the victory.
A nice cluster of three feuds; a Jinder victory makes perfect sense to give him as much belief as you can. Honestly I sense a JBL style title run incoming…
Winners: Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens & Baron Corbin.
