Sean Ross Sappdown Live (8/15): CASH IN!, The Last Fashion Peaks, Match Ratings, More

Jinder Mahal

  • Ahh. "You people." Original.
  • He brings out people to dance and celebrate. Also an old lady to sing India's national anthem.
  • She gets booed. 
  • Timely, WWE. 
  • This was absolute lowest common denominator garbage. 
Powerhouse Hobbs, Big Swole, Billy Gunn, And More Set For Action On 4/20 AEW Dark

Natalya defeated Becky Lynch
3.25/10

  • Naomi is out for commentary. 
  • During the commercial, Natalya treats the match like a commercial.  
  • Natalya wins. Naomi says she'll win Sunday because "she has the glow."
  • I don't know what that means.
  • Carmellsworth come out and tease a Summerslam cash-in. They might need it. The women's division is flat and generic right now. 

Backstage crappenings

  • Tamina re-asks a question. THEY DON'T FEAR ME? Lana is going to coach her to a title shot.
  • I really enjoy Daniel Bryan and the Usos friendship, instead of WWE ignoring what we saw from them on Talking Smack.
  • Fashion Peaks ended, and I guess Breezango are back in two weeks. 

Rusev and Chad Gable go to a double countout

  • Rusev beats up Gable and they get counted out.
  • Rusev clears off the table and moves the monitors to............put Gable in the Accolade on top of it? This has been a weird show. 
  • Orton shows up and hits an RKO mid-Rusev promo. 

AJ's apology

  • Shane McMahon tells AJ Styles there's no reason to apologize. 
  • There's a lot of passive aggressive dialogue as Kevin Owens comes out and kisses Shanes' ass.
  • This is all good, Shane has become much more comfortable on the mic.
  • Shane says he won't hesitate to defend himself at Summerslam, and urges AJ and KO to shake hands.
  • KO ends up accidentally kicking Shane, after McMahon blocked an errant Styles punch.
  • Really enjoyable.

Usos defeated New Day (w/ Big E)
5.25/10

  • Kofi and Xavier were referred to as the "speed team" of New Day.
  • Their offense was quick and often, which unleashed rapid "OH!" shots from Phillips. 
  • Usos do so well at making you like them outside the ring, but making you hate them inside it.
  • They go low on Kofi and get the win. They'll be facing Xavier and Big E at Summerslam

John Cena defeated Jinder Mahal via DQ
5/10

  • The commentary team was told to say "one of the biggest matches in Smackdown history."
  • The beginning of Cena-Mahal -- a test of strength -- is a Vince wet dream.
  • Samir drops Cena with a punch. Another dove cries.
  • If I'm a WWE wrestler, I have the "don't throw wild looping punches" at Cena think scouted. 
  • The Singh brothers are caught grabbing Cena and are ejected.
  • Jinder Mahal kicks out of the AA. Cena hits a super AA, but Corbin interferes and attacks Cena.
  • Corbin is cashing in!!!

WWE Championship Match
