Good evening Fight Fans and welcome to our coverage of tonight's edition of WWE Smackdown on FOX!
- We open the show with a video package for Triple H before we open the show in the arena with a run down of the matches tonight including the Women's Tag Team Championship match later tonight before we go to the ring for New Day who celebrate their winning the Smackdown Tag Team titles for an 8th time last week. Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado of Lucha House Party come out and congratulate TND before they're interrupted by the former champions The Miz and John Morrison who walk right past them and get into the ring with E and Kofi. LHC get into the ring and all three teams exchange words before they're then interrupted by The Forgotten Sons and all four teams soon brawl in the ring before TFS clear the ring and make an emphatic statement by taking out the champs. We then get a graphic for the MitB qualifier between Drew Gulak and Baron Corbin up next as we go to commercial.
