SmackDown Results : Full Details
“The Ambrose Asylum” with special guests The Miz and Maryse
BATON ROUGE, La. – After taking a moment to officially declare himself as a participant in the Royal Rumble Match, Dean Ambrose welcomed the Superstar he defeated for the Intercontinental Title last week to “The Ambrose Asylum.”
The Miz wasted no time claiming that he, too, has declared himself as a participant in the Royal Rumble Match. He then went on to suggest that Ambrose should hand over the Intercontinental Championship after the controversial ending of their title contest last week. The Lunatic Fringe did not bite on that bait, but offered an olive branch of sorts by re-gifting “The Miz Participation Award” back to the A-Lister.
From there, Miz and Ambrose got into it, with Ambrose ultimately getting the upper hand after he ducked a Maryse slap that wound up connecting with Miz square in the jaw. He then handed Maryse the award as a parting gift.
Nikki Bella vs. Natalya ended in a No Contest
Prior to their highly-personal scheduled match getting under way, Natalya attacked Nikki Bella backstage. This left Nikki in a fit of rage, causing her to lunge at Natalya before the bell could even officially ring on their match. Fearless Nikki went berserk on The Queen Harts for a period of time until Natalya was able to pry away from the security trying to separate the Superstars, connect with a blindside chop block to Nikki and then lock in the Sharpshooter.
Natalya eventually relinquished the Sharpshooter, but not before doing a ton of damage in the process.
Kalisto def. Dolph Ziggler
Despite the fact that Ziggler’s newfound aggression allowed him to dominate the majority of their match, in the end his masked opponent was able to pull out a quick victory. As the dust cleared, however, an infuriated Ziggler wasted no time making Kalisto pay by attacking him relentlessly with a chair. While Crews came to Kalisto’s aid, Ziggler used the chair to take him out as well, before giving one final blow to Kalisto with the dreaded chair.
American Alpha def. Bray Wyatt & Randy Orton of The Wyatt Family
However, in the height of the subsequent contest, some accidental miscommunication by Luke Harper allowed Jason Jordan & Chad Gable to retain when Gable rolled up Orton after Harper inadvertently distracted The Viper.
After the bell, things quickly turned tense between Orton and Harper, causing Wyatt to accidentally get knocked to the ground when Harper kicked The Eater of Worlds when aiming for Orton. Bray arose and stared down both of his followers before promptly exiting.
Daniel Bryan announced first SmackDown Women’s Championship Steel Cage Match
As a result, SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan declared that the Wicked Witch of WWE must attempt to defend her illustrious title against The Irish Lass Kicker next week. Just to assure there’s no interference from outside forces, Bryan decided that the SmackDown Women’s Title will be defended for the first time inside a Steel Cage!
Carmella def. CJ Lunde
John Cena def. Baron Corbin
In SmackDown LIVE’s main event, the leader of the Cenation went to war with The Lone Wolf for the first time, with WWE Champion AJ Styles lurking in the wings. In the height of the knockdown, drag-out match that followed, John Cena ultimately triumphed with an Attitude Adjustment.
With Baron Corbin momentarily tamed, Cena and Styles ended SmackDown LIVE staring each other down, poised to battle for the WWE Title at Royal Rumble on Jan. 29.
