WWE SmackDown Results


– We go right to the ring and Dasha Fuentes has a mic. She welcomes us to SmackDown and introduces SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. Out comes Flair for a face off with her WWE Fastlane opponent.

Dasha introduces Ruby Riott and out she comes with her partners but they stay back. Dasha starts talking to Ruby but Ruby cuts her off and snatches the mic, dissing Dasha and saying she will take it from here. Ruby says this all began on November 14th, 2017 when Flair became SmackDown Women’s Champion. Ruby says Flair has been set up for success all her life. The perfect women – she’s tall, blonde, athletic and more, she’s the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. Ruby says Flair became the first Superstar to win the Divas, RAW, SmackDown and WWE NXT Women’s Titles when she won back in November. Riott says she watched then as the myth began to form, the myth that Flair is the personification of the women’s revolution. Ruby says that is why she formed The Riott Squad just 2 weeks after Flair’s win, with one sole purpose – to destroy the myth.

Flair says the only myth that exists about her is that she’s been handed anything in her life. Flair says she’s had to work hard, probably harder than others, because of who she is. She has the weight of expectation on her shoulders, which is hard to live up to. Flair says if she loses, the consequences are magnified and look bad on her whole family. Flair goes on and says she has proven by her accomplishments that she transcends any myth about her. Flair says the reality is that she’s standing right here and she’s better than what Ruby has heard. Ruby goes on and says whether Flair put herself there or was put there, she’s on a pedestal and all that is on the line this Sunday. Ruby says when she takes Flair’s crown, she will no longer be the queen and her world will crumble. Ruby says Flair will be just another bleach blonde failure with a famous last name.

Ruby gives a nod and in comes Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan. They all stare down Flair but the music interrupts and out comes Flair’s Mixed Match Challenge partner, WWE United States Champion Bobby Roode. Roode is here to do commentary for tonight’s first match, Randy Ortonvs. Jinder Mahal. Roode stops any attack by distracting everyone as he does his entrance. We go to commercial.

Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal

– Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens are backstage. Sami talks about being ready for the Six-Pack Challenge. Owens is also ready but reminds him that this is every man for himself. Owens reminds Sami how Sami previously said he would lay down for Owens if the match at Fastlane came down to the two of them. Sami says yes. Owens can’t believe Sami would do that and says it’s almost too good to be true but Sami is a really great guy. Owens goes on about Sami and Sami says people didn’t start noticing all of this until he hooked up with Owens. Sami says his time will come but Owens is one win away from main eventing WrestleMania 34 and one win away from becoming a Grand Slam Champion. Sami says he will be so proud of Owens when that happens. Sami thanks Owens for everything he does and says yes, he will lay down for Owens at Fastlane. Sami laughs and hugs Owens to end the segment.

– Still to come, Dolph Ziggler vs. AJ Styles. Back to commercial.
