Welcome everybody to Smackdown live !!
Last week, Kevin Owens thought he had an easy way to regain the United States Championship from AJ Styles after choosing Baron Corbin as the special guest referee. However, when The Lone Wolf bailed after his refereeing skills were called into question, Shane McMahon stepped in for the pinfall that saw Styles retain the title. Now that he can no longer challenge for the title, how will KO react?

I am going to show you the results of this week smackdown and we will be going through every segment of this week’s Smackdown live …..and ranking every segment as a good or a bad segment.
In the end, we will determine whether it was a good show or a bad show.
STARTING THE SHOW WITH THE WWE CHAMPION ⇒ JINDER MAHAL
Jinder Mahal started the show with a promo saying the audience has no idea what it is like to walk in his shoes. He talks about being disrespected nationwide. He talks about being disrespected at every airport or hotel he visits. He raises up the WWE Championship and thinks he should get the respect he rightfully deserves.
Mahal says that he is the best.
The Singh Brothers talk about failing Mahal last week. They want to publicly apologize to everyone on the great continent of Asia, the 1.3 billion people in India and the WWE Champion, the modern day Maharaja, Jinder Mahal. They apologize on behalf of the great nation of India. The Singh Brothers request to kiss Mahal’s royal feet. The Singh Brothers get down on their knees to begin kissing his feet with the lights go out.
And here comes The Artist known as Shinsuke Nakamura…..
The Singh Brothers and Mahal start attacking Nakamura when Orton comes out. Orton destroys Jinder and the Singh brothers and here comes Rusev. Rusev levels Orton with a big superkick. The Singh Brothers pick up Nakamura. Mahal connects with his Khallas on Nakamura to close the segment.
Well, this was a segment to set up the main event of Smackdown live……
Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura VS Jinder Mahal and Rusev
It was a GOOD SEGMENT.
1st MATCH OF SMACKDOWN LIVE ⇒ Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin VS The Ascension
Winner:- Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin
It was the debut match for Shelton Benjamin and it was a good match and a good win for Chad Gable as well. They work well as a tag team.
Another GOOD MATCH, keep going.
AJ STYLES US OPEN CHALLENGE
Tye Dillinger walked out to accept the challenge.
Baron Corbin cuts off Dillinger saying it is his turn. Corbin attacks Dillinger and tells him to try and answer the challenge now. Dillinger throws Corbin to the steel ring post and calls for the bell to ring to get the match officially started.
2nd MATCH OF SMACKDOWN LIVE ⇒ AJ Styles VS Tye Dillinger (United States Championship)
Winner:- AJ Styles
A pretty quick match …..basically a squash match for AJ Styles …..I don’t know why WWE is not pushing guys like Dillinger, Ziggler, Sami Zayn…..
It was not good.
BOBBY ROODE IN ACTION
3rd MATCH OF SMACKDOWN LIVE ⇒ Bobby Roode VS Mike Kanellis
Winner:- Bobby Roode
Another win for Bobby, ending Mike Kanellis with the glorious DDT.
A good match.
Well, for next week, Randy Orton will face Shinsuke Nakamura and the winner will face Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship.
KEVIN OWENS UPSET WITH LAST WEEK’S LOSS
Kevin Owens interrupts Aiden English and tells him to leave the ring. Owens asks what gives Shane McMahon the right to get involved and stop the special guest referee like that. He says Shane has screwed him out of the United States Championship twice. Owens says this would have never happened on RAW and that Stephanie McMahon would never abuse her power like that.
Here comes the commissioner of Smackdown live Shane Mcmahan…..
Shane simply says this conversation is over. He tells Aiden English to return to the ring and for Owens to leave right now.
4th MATCH OF SMACKDOWN LIVE ⇒ Sami Zayn VS Aiden English
Winner:- Aiden English
Kevin Owens slides in and takes off the referee shirt. Owens puts on the referee shirt and gives Sami a pop-up powerbomb and counts very quickly.

The Usos vs. The New Day in a non-title match is up next. The winners of the match get to pick the stipulation for the Smackdown Tag Team Championships rematch.
5th MATCH OF SMACKDOWN LIVE ⇒ The Usos VS The New Day
Winner:- The Usos
A very quick match between them….but still they have the potential to put great 5* matches. Now the Usos will be picking a stipulation which I think will get to know next week.
6TH MATCH OF SMACKDOWN LIVE ⇒ Tamina VS Tina Stock
Winner:- Who do you think ??…..Of course ….Tamina
Series of quick matches by WWE……well I don’t want to waste my time to talk about this.
THE MAIN EVENT
