We are just 5 days away from WWE TLC this Sunday and tonight's episode of WWE Smackdown! Live is set to be a good one as we have Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt looking to defeat American Alpha and gain the opportunity to take on Heath Slater and Rhyno for their WWE Smackdown Tag Team titles. Dean Ambrose has James Ellsworth as his special guest in an edition of the Ambrose Asylum and what will AJ have to say before his title defense in a TLC match? Be sure to come back here at 8PM EST for all of tonight's action!
-We open with a plug for our main event, a #1 contenders match between American Alpha and The Wyatt Family where the winner will face Heath Slater and Rhyno for the Smackdown Tag Team titles at TLC this Sunday. Alexa Bliss and Becky Lynch come out to the ring and are interviewed by Renee Young about their title match this Sunday. Becky and Alexa take jabs at each other, Becky calling Alexa Harley Quinn and Alexa saying she won the match because of what she calls dumb Irish luck. Becky compares her to her child cousin and Alexa says her foot was on the ropes then Becky says she's not giving her a choice to tap at TLC. Becky says she has won and it's not because of luck and calls herself a badger then Alexa tells her life isn't like the Disney channel and as hard as you work there's always someone better, talking about herself. Alexa tells her to do whatever she needs to before the match and says she's going to put her fire out and become Smackdown Women's champion. Becky attacks Alexa and smashes her face into the table then beats her up around the ring. Becky then sits Alexa on the top rope and teases an exploder suplex off the second rope, but Alexa knocks her off and she falls through the table. Alexa stands tall over Becky then leaves as we get a plug for The Ambrose Asylum as we go to commercial.
-We get a recap of Alexa putting Becky through a table as Dolph Ziggler comes out.
