WWE are recording their second day of TV in Manchester England. Last night, WWE filmed WWE Raw which saw the start of the WWE title tournament; with 5 matches taking place. Smackdown sees this continue and with the scheduled appearance of the Undertaker, what can we expect from Thursday Night Smackdown.
The Wyatt Family walk to the ring to kick off Smackdown. Following the beatdown they recieved on Raw; each member cut a promo on The Undertaker and Kane. Bray ended the promo saying that he has taken pieces from each of them which they cannot take back. Bray then challenged the Brothers of Destruction to a 2 on 2 match at the Survivor Series; not indicating which two members will be part of Team Wyatt.
In the opening match Braun Strowman defeated Fandango. Post match, Bray demands an answer for his challenge.
In the WWE Championship Tournament match Neville defeated King Barrett. This was a very close call to see who might actually win; I am surprised Barrett didn’t go over as him versus Owens would have been brilliant.
Backstage, The Uso’s cut a promo on The Wyatt Family saying they will get their revenge later tonight.
King Barrett came to the ring; cutting a promo on how Wayne Rooney cost Sheamus his WWE Title tournament match on Raw. As Barrett went on, the gongs went off. Leading to The Undertaker coming to the ring. Barrett cut a promo asking if he “could help him mate” to Taker until he failed to attack the Deadman. Taker fought back, hitting a chokeslam and two Tombstones to Barrett.
In a huge shock, Lucha Dragon member Kalisto beat Ryback in the WWE Championship tournament match. WWE needed a shock and if I am honest I did not expect this one!
In the final first round match of the WWE Championship tournament, Alberto Del Rio beat Stardust following a stomp in the corner.
Backstage Roman Reigns speaks with Renee Young saying his is not a sell out and will not side with Triple H.
In the main event The Usos defeated Luke Harper and Erick Rowan by DQ after Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt interfered with the match. The Wyatt Family then beat down The Usos. The Undertaker’s bells toll and his voice can be heard accepting Wyatt’s challenge.
