SmackDown LIVE Results : Full Details

 

Shane McMahon announced the participants in this year’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match

TOLEDO, Ohio — SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon kicked off the proceedings this week by announcing the loaded lineup for this year’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match:

However, that announcement was only the beginning, as tensions immediately rose between all six combatants with disrespect soaring through the air just like the Superstars will be in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match itself. Shane-O-Mac implemented some problem-solving, though, and made two major matchups for tonight: AJ Styles & WWE’s Rockstar, Shinsuke Nakamura, teaming up to take on Dolph Ziggler & Kevin Owens and, in a WWE Backlash rematch, Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin.

 

Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch def. Carmella & Natalya

Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya & Carmella: SmackDown LIVE, May 23, 2017

After Sunday's heated Six-Woman Tag Team Match, Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch try to stop the "welcoming committee" on SmackDown LIVE.

Clearly looking for redemption after falling with Naomi in a chaotic Six-Woman Tag Team Match at WWE Backlash against the “welcoming committee,” Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch squared off against Carmella and the woman who made The Irish Lass Kicker tap out on Sunday, Natalya.

Marking your territory was the theme for the Superstars in the ring and for Naomi, who attempted to neutralize the shenanigans of Tamina and James Ellsworth throughout the contest.

Charlotte & Becky broke through when, thanks in part to Naomi keeping Ellsworth at bay, Lynch locked in the Dis-arm Her on Carmella to get the submission victory.

 

Sami Zayn def. Baron Corbin

After Sami Zayn scored what many considered to be an upset victory over Baron Corbin at WWE Backlash, the two collided again on SmackDown LIVE, this time with Money in the Bank momentum very much in play.

Clearly operating with a new level of confidence in the wake of defeating The Lone Wolf two nights prior, The Underdog from The Underground moved swiftly and forcefully, catching Corbin off-guard with a rollup for the win.

After the surprisingly quick loss, an outraged Corbin brutally attacked Zayn, savaging him with a steel chair, brutalizing him around the arena and leaving The Underdog from the Underground in a crumbled heap.

 

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal held a Punjabi Celebration

Following his shocking WWE Championship win over Randy Orton at WWE Backlash, Jinder Mahal, accompanied by The Singh Brothers, wanted to kick off the golden age of The Modern-Day Maharaja in style. He first celebrated with drummers and dancers in grand fashion. He then chastised the WWE Universe for doubting him and basked in his triumph with an amazing pyrotechnics display.

Whether a golden age was beginning remained to be seen, but it was unquestionable that Mahal stood tall on this night.

 

Tyler Breeze def. Jey Uso

Are The Fashion Police turning in their badges?: SmackDown LIVE, May 23, 2017

After a crushing defeat at WWE Backlash, Breezango, SmackDown LIVE's Fashion Police, dejectedly attempt to turn in their badges to Commissioner Shane McMahon.

During a lively edition of The Fashion Files, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon granted Breezango individual matches against an Uso each, starting with Tyler Breeze getting the W over Jey Uso after Fandango distracted him with a water gun, allowing Prince Pretty to roll him up for the win.

 

Fandango def. Jimmy Uso

Breezango & The Usos clash in singles competition: SmackDown LIVE, May 23, 2017

Tyler Breeze takes on Jey Uso, and Fandango battles Jimmy Uso in one-on-one competition.

Fresh off Tyler Breeze’s victory over Jey Uso moments prior, Fandango kept the streak going, besting Jimmy Uso after a wigged Tyler Breeze caused a major distraction, allowing Fandango to also snag a rollup victory.

After the contest, The Fashion Police tried to pluck at the enraged and embarrassed Usos, challenging them to a SmackDown Tag Team Title rematch right on the spot. Still visibly frustrated, Jimmy & Jey accepted and the title match was officially confirmed moments later.

 

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos def. Breezango

The Usos vs. Breezango - SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: SmackDown LIVE, May 23, 2017

The Fashion Police get another chance to dethrone The Usos as SmackDown Tag Team Champions.

Tyler Breeze and Fandango seemed to be firing on all cylinders as they attempted to right the wrongs of their loss to The Usos in a SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match at WWE Backlash. Clearly in The Usos’ heads after their pair of singles victories moments earlier, Breeze and Fandango seemed primed for the win. However, The Usos were just too crafty, landing a splash on Fandango immediately after he hit The Last Dance, catching him off guard and allowing The Usos to retain their titles.

 

AJ Styles & Shinsuke Nakamura def. Kevin Owens & Dolph Ziggler

With the Money in the Bank Ladder Match looming, four of SmackDown LIVE’s top Superstars linked up in tag team action with each side and every individual wanting to shine, as all of them proverbially moved one rung closer to potentially earning a guaranteed opportunity to challenge for the WWE Championship.

The hard-hitting contest saw no shortage of personal exchanges, as both AJ Styles and United States Champion Kevin Owens, as well as The Artist Known as Shinsuke Nakamura and Dolph Ziggler, looked to pick up where they left off at WWE Backlash.

At the end of a chaotic battle, The Phenomenal One and WWE’s Rockstar prevailed when Nakamura nailed the Kinshasa on The New Face of America for the win.
