The June 5, 2020 Edition of Smackdown Live was a Professional wrestling television show of the WWE's Smackdown brand which took place on May 26, 2020 at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
While walking backstage with his lovely peach, Otis grabbed King Corbin’s unattended crown and donned it in his entrance to the ring with Mandy Rose. The Workin’ Man Superstar was lining up a decisive blow when Corbin resorted to a steel chair attack that led to his disqualification. Otis had the last laugh, as he landed an explosive Caterpillar and celebrated with The Golden Goddess in the ring.
After last week’s clash ended with the two competitors counted out following a brawl outside the ring, Lacey Evans and Sonya Deville picked up right where they left off with Deville blindsiding Evans as she entered the ring. An injury to the official halted the match momentarily, but Deville took the delay as an opportunity and delivered a vicious attack on The Sassy Southern Belle. As Deville seemed headed for a brutally earned victory, Mandy Rose appeared with a video message for her former best friend that allowed Evans to rally back and land a Woman’s Right for the win.
AJ Styles was determined to send Daniel Bryan a message ahead of their Intercontinental Championship showdown and challenged his coach Drew Gulak to a match. The Phenomenal One got more than the title tune-up he originally bargained for, as Gulak shocked Styles with a career-changing victory over the former WWE Champion.
Following Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura’s attacks last week, Mojo Rawley became the latest Superstar to try and knock Shorty G down a peg. The New Day teamed up with the scrappy Superstar against the dangerous trio, and the SmackDown Tag Team Champions helped Shorty G silence another doubter.
The current champions took on the original champions in an intense battle for the Women's Tag Team Titles. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross battled valiantly with their teamwork on full display. For Bayley & Sasha Banks, the cohesion appeared off at times, but the singular talents of WWE’s "role models" were on full display as The Boss leveraged a Banks Statement into a roll-up to claim the Women’s Tag Team Titles for the original champions.
