Good evening Fight Fans and welcome to our coverage of tonight's edition of WWE Smackdown on FOX! We hope you enjoy the show and be sure to stick around afterwards for the post-show podcast!
-The newly crowned Universal champion Goldberg comes out to the ring to start the show and just says that it's not about who's last, but who's next before Roman Reigns comes out to the ring. Roman then gets into the ring and gets in Goldberg's face before they lock eyes and Roman leaves as Goldberg snarls before we go to a graphic for the return of John Cena as we get a video package for John as we go to commercial.
Bayley vs Naomi
Naomi backs Bayley up, but she immediately exits through the ropes several times before grabbing a mic and cutting a promo while the referee holds Naomi back. Bayley introduces the return of Sasha Banks before attacking Naomi from behind when she's distracted and Bayley rocks her with a kick before dropkicking her. Naomi then hits the Rear View before Sasha runs in and attacks her for the disqualification.
Winner: Naomi defeats Bayley via disqualification.
-After the match Bayley and Sasha attack Naomi before she's saved by Lacey Evans and all four women are separated before they make a tag match on the fly.
Bayley & Sasha Banks vs Naomi & Lacey Evans
We come back from the break to the match already in progress with Sasha and Bayley double teaming Naomi before they cut the ring in half and mock Lacey while chaining together frequent tags and offense. Lacey paces back and forth on the apron before Sasha teases letting Naomi tags her in and instead knocks her off of the apron. Naomi kicks Sasha away and gets the tag to Lacey who drops Bayley boots Sasha off of the apron before hitting a bronco buster and Naomi hits a springboard cross body for a near fall that Sasha breaks up. Lacey and Sasha then brawl at ringside before Naomi pins Bayley with a sunset flip.
Winner: Naomi and Lacey Evans defeat Bayley and Sasha Banks.
Kofi Kingston w/Big-E vs Robert Roode w/Dolph Ziggler
Roode puts Kofi in a headlock before dropping him with a shoulder block and reapplying the headlock. Roode transitions into a hammer lock before Kofi drops him and Roode backs him into the corner before stomping him. Roode whips Kofi into the corner before Kofi lands on his feet when Roode goes for a monkey flip. Kofi dropkicks Roode and backs him against the ropes before Roode drops him and Kofi comes back with a back elbow. E is then ejected from ringside when Roode acts like Big-E attacked him as we go to commercial.
We come back to Roode in control as Mandy Rose looks on from a monitor backstage before Kofi gets to his feet and hits a missile dropkick off of the second rope. Roode rolls out onto the apron and snaps Kofi's throat across the ropes and suplexes Kofi. Roode misses a diving knee drop before Kofi hits a springboard clothesline and several more clotheslines into a Boom Drop. Roode dodges the Trouble in Paradise before Kofi hits a diving cross body for two and Roode hits a uranage for two. Roode sets Kofi on the top turnbuckle before Kofi rogues him off and Roode hits a spinebuster for a near fall.
Roode then goes for the Glorious DDT before Kofi hits the SOS for a near fall that Roode breaks up before Roode rolls Kofi up when he's arguing with the referee.
Winner: Robert Roode defeats Kofi Kingston via pinfall.
