WWE SmackDown (4/19/2024).

  • Corey Graves & Wade Barrett welcomed the audience to the broadcast before transitioning into the opening match.
  • WWE Undisputed Championship - #1 Contenders Match: AJ Styles def. LA Knight via Pinfall (Phenomenal Forearm).
  • Solo Sikoa arrived at the arena in a suit and surprised Heyman with his fit. Sikoa revealed to Heyman that Tama Tonga is now the newest member of The Bloodline, naming him his "MFT". Sikoa then asked Heyman if Kevin Owens was in the arena, to which Heyman said he would take Sikoa to him.
  • Paul Levesque & Nick Aldis introduced the SmackDown Tag Team Champions A-Town Down Under (Austin Theory & Grayson Waller). After some bragging from Theory & Waller, Levesque presented a new set of titles for them before naming them the new WWE Tag Team Champions. Levesque went to shake their hands, but Waller left Levesque hanging. Aldis said that if they tried to pull a stunt like that again, he would guarantee that A-Town Down Under would cease to exist in WWE. This segment was followed up with the #1 Contender’s Match for the new titles.
  • Naomi was interviewed backstage by Kayla Braxton. Naomi said that her friendship with Bayley would not get in the way of their title match, but said she was focused on winning the WWE Women’s Championship tonight.
  • WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship - #1 Contenders Match: Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) def. New Catch Republic (Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate), Legado Del Fantasma (Angel Garza & Berto Carrillo) & Authors of Pain (Akam & Rezar) (w/ Karrion Kross, Paul Ellering & Scarlett) via Pinfall (The Revelation).
  • WWE Women's Champion Bayley was interviewed backstage by Byron Saxton. During the interview, Bayley said she understood her duty as the only active Women's Champion and said she would aim to make a successful title defense tonight against Naomi.
  • Solo Sikoa & Paul Heyman were in the ring, where Heyman named himself the top politician in WWE History. Heyman used this experience to explain what was going on with The Bloodline, but was immediately cut off by Sikoa as soon as he was going to name himself “The Wise Man of The Tribal Chief”. Sikoa then introduced Tama Tonga, who arrived by tossing around a bloodied Kevin Owens to the ramp. Sikoa & Tonga attacked Owens more before multiple producers & referees got in the way.
  • Nick Aldis confronted Paul Heyman in the parking lot, where he showed the cars of Kevin Owens & Tama Tonga. Aldis told Heyman to keep The Bloodline in control because Tama Tonga’s actions would have repercussions for the WWE Draft. After all, losing was not the only thing that had consequences.
  • Santos Escobar (w/ Elektra Lopez) def. Carlito Colon (w/ Zelina Vega) via Pinfall (Phantom Driver).
  • Kayla Braxton interviewed Damage CTRL (Dakota Kai, Kairi Sane, Asuka & Iyo Sky) from the crowd. Kai scolded Braxton for naming Sky as the former Women's Champion and said that DamageCTRL was still the most dominant faction in WWE. This led to Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill and joining them in the section next to them in the crowd. This led directly to the main event of the night.
  • WWE Undisputed Champion Cody Rhodes cut a promo from London, England. Rhodes acknowledged AJ Styles becoming the new contender, saying that he was the new excellence of execution and looked forward to the match.
  • WWE Women's Championship Match: Bayley (c) def. Naomi via Disqualification.
