The April 24, 2020 Edition of Smackdown Live was a Professional wrestling television show of the WWE's Smackdown brand which took place on April 24, 2020 at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. It was originally scheduled to take place at CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska but was relocated due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.
Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro stepped into King Corbin’s corner and helped the regal competitor defeat Drew Gulak and earn a spot in this year’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Corbin delivered a brutal scepter blow to Gulak after the loss to put an evil exclamation point on the victory.
Another man up, another man dispatched by The Celtic Warrior, who quickly defeated Daniel Vidot and then took exception with Michael Cole’s repeated recognition of Jeff Hardy.
Lucha House Party shocked the WWE Universe and left Michael Cole and Corey Graves speechless with a victory over the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
After Bayley got involved in the proceedings, Sasha Banks appeared to have the match sealed with a long roll-up on Lacey Evans, but the distracted referee missed the maneuver. The Boss snapped back at the SmackDown Women’s Champion to stay out of her clash, but The Sassy Southern Belle pounced on the opportunity to deliver a Woman’s Right for the 1-2-3.
Carmella & Dana Brooke got off to a fabulous start, but Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross kept their run going and successfully defended the Women’s Tag Team Titles.
