The New Day kicked off SmackDown in a more serious tone (although not too serious) than the WWE Universe is used to seeing. Xavier Woods, Big E and Kofi Kingston addressed Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson’s attack against them on Raw, to which the Superstars in question came out to say their piece.
It quickly became clear that Gallows and Anderson have their sights set on The New Day’s WWE Tag Team Titles, but just as their war of word started to heat up, AJ Styles appeared to make sure everyone knew that WWE belongs to The Club. The Phenomenal One then took aim at The Dreadlocked Dynamo, before challenging Kingston to a head-to-head showdown in SmackDown’s main event.
WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte and Becky Lynch are no strangers to one another, having battled multiple times in the past. There is one big difference this time, however, and that is the person standing in the titleholder’s corner.
Dana Brooke made her presence felt in this contest after she reached into the ring to try and save the champion from The Irish Lass Kicker’s Dis-Arm-Her submission maneuver. This got Charlotte disqualified, but the two seemed content with this outcome until Natalya arrived. The Queen of Harts and her fiery ally proceeded to unleash a spirited attack against their blonde foes, causing the fiendish duo to escape through the crowd.
The Golden Truth’s troubles continued on SmackDown as the bizarre pairing literally collided in untimely fashion. With Breezeango watching closely from their VIP seats at ringside, Goldust & R- Truth more than held their own against nine-time WWE Tag Team Champions The Dudley Boyz.
Unfortunately, Tyler Breeze thought the middle of the match was a good time to try and snap a selfie on the ring apron, motivating the rapping Superstar to knock him into Fandango’s arms outside the ring. Being the savvy veteran that he is, D-Von Dudley took advantage of this distraction, pushing The Bizarre One into his tag team partner and rolling up the golden Superstar for the pinfall.
Adding insult to injury, Breeze and Fandango celebrated Golden Truth’s hard-luck loss by insulting them and declaring themselves to be “gorgelicious.”
