WWE SmackDown LIVE results, July 3, 2018: Team Hell No hold off The Usos, but the bludgeoning still awaits
Feeling as though Team Hell No was not worthy of their SmackDown Tag Team Championship opportunity at WWE Extreme Rules, The Usos challenged Daniel Bryan & Kane in the main event. If Jimmy & Jey won, they would be added to Bryan & Kane’s championship bout against The Bludgeon Brothers.

The Usos confronted the reunited Team Hell No
OMAHA, Neb. — Following their shocking reunion last week, Team Hell No kicked off SmackDown LIVE by chatting with Renee Young. Kane explained to the WWE Universe that he figured it would only be a matter of time before Daniel Bryan could use some backup and that The Beard’s run-in with The Bludgeon Brothers last week was the time to come to the rescue. However, as the two friends tried to express their excitement about their upcoming SmackDown Tag Team Championship opportunity at WWE Extreme Rules, they also couldn’t help but fall back into their old patterns of arguing over… well, pretty much everything. The two soon found themselves in a shouting match, but they were quickly interrupted by The Usos.
Jimmy and Jey were happy to see that Team Hell No were back together but took great exception to Bryan & Kane receiving a title opportunity right out of the gate. The Usos believed that Bryan and Kane had been awarded the title match for all the wrong reasons, a claim that Team Hell No of course refuted. Seeing tensions rising between the two teams, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige hit the scene with a blockbuster announcement: Team Hell No would receive their opportunity against The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WWE Extreme Rules no matter what. However, if The Usos could defeat Team Hell No tonight in the main event, Jimmy & Jey would be added to the match to make it a Triple Threat.
And, well, how do you say “no” to that?!
United States Champion Jeff Hardy def. The Miz in the Independence Day United States Open Challenge
With the Fourth of July just one day away, United States Champion Jeff Hardy issued the Independence Day United States Open Challenge to anyone on the roster… enter The A-Lister.
The Miz constantly attempted to ground Hardy’s aerial mastery, but The Charismatic Enigma battled back, and after the referee caught The Miz red-handed trying to use the ropes for leverage during a pinfall attempt, Hardy caught an irate A-Lister with a Twist of Fate and a must-see Swanton Bomb for the victory.
SAnitY spoil The New Day’s First Annual Third of July Pancake Eating Contest
Trying to spread some positivity (and pancakes) on the night before Independence Day, The New Day unveiled their First Annual Third of July Pancake Eating Contest. Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods competed in a flapjack-eating challenge set to last for a staggering five minutes. During the contest, however, the lights went out, and SAnitY attacked The New Day from behind. SmackDown LIVE officials rushed out to try to stop the attack, but SAnitY couldn’t be contained. Eric Young, Killian Dain and Alexander Wolfe continued the savage beatdown, and Dain and Wolfe held Woods down on a table while Young elbow-dropped him through it to cap off the assault.
