This is the Fightful.com live coverage for tonight's episode of WWE Smackdown! Live. We are just two weeks away from WWE Summerslam where Jinder Mahal will defend his WWE World Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura, but tonight Jinder will have to face Randy Orton one more time. We also have Shane McMahon explaining the United States Championship Match and much more so be sure to come back here at 8 PM EST for all of the action!
-We open the show with John Cena talking about his match with Shinsuke Nakamura last week, putting him over and saying that he learned real quick that Shinsuke is fearless. John then talks about how tough Nakamura is before Baron Corbin comes out to the ramp. Cena gets the crowd on his side before Corbin teases going to ring. Corbin then starts to leave before Daniel Bryan comes out and makes a match between Cena and Corbin for Summerslam as we go to commercial.
The Usos vs Sami Zayn & Tye Dillinger
Tye and Jimmy start the match off with Tye hitting a series of right hands in the corner before tagging in Sami who teases the Helluva Kick early, but Jey pulls Jimmy out of the ring at the last second to save him as we go to commercial.
Sami tags Tye in as we come back from commercial, dropping him with a flurry of offense before stomping on him in the corner repeatedly. Sami then hits a flipping senton over the top rope before tossing Jey back into the ring. Jey catches Tye on the top rope before Jimmy gets a blind tag. The Usos then use their move that injured Chad Gable before putting Tye in a submission for the tap and the win.
Winner: The Usos via submission
-After the match New Day attack The Usos from behind out of nowhere, then go to kill Jimmy with a chair before Jey pulls him out of the ring to save him as we go to commercial.
-We have an interview segment with Randy Orton backstage about his grudge match with Jinder tonight where Randy says that Jinder won't have the Singh brothers to help him tonight. Next week have a Fashion Police segment where Tyler is still trying to find Fandango while talking to the Ascension as they share a tray of doughnuts. Fandango then appears behind him and says that he escaped the aliens before Arn Anderson comes in and takes some doughnuts before leaving.
Charlotte vs Lana
Charlotte is in control for the entire match, showing off her strength and muscling Lana around the ring with ease before Charlotte gets a quick two count off of a back slide. Charlotte then mocks Lana before Lana slaps her, Lana then getting a boot for her troubles. Charlotte then follows up with the Figure Eight for the tap and the win.
Winner: Charlotte via submission
