Detailed Results

SmackDown kicks off with a big 8-Man Tag Match as, nine nights before they defend the WWE Tag Team Titles against Gold & Stardust at Night of Champions, WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos would team with “The World’s Largest Athlete” Big Show and “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry to face the team of Gold & Stardust and The Wyatt Family’s Luke Harper & Erick Rowan, with their leader, Bray Wyatt, in their corner. During the match, Jimmy Uso would be tossed over the top rope, but would catch himself on the ring apron, inadvertently tweaking his knee on the landing. At the end of a wild match, it was Big Show leveling Stardust with the Knockout Punch, followed by Jey Uso hitting the Superfly Splash, pinning Stardust to pick up the win for his team.

With Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter watching from ringside, the self-proclaimed “inspiration” Bo Dallas would go one-on-one with Justin Gabriel on SmackDown. However, the bell would ring and Bo Dallas would grab a microphone, calling himself “America’s sweetheart”. Zeb Colter interrupts, saying that, if Bo is America’s sweetheart, then he’s “Ariana freakin’ Grande”, saying that Dallas needs to be on late night infomercials before saying that no one should “bo-lieve”, but they should put their hands over their hearts and proclaim “we the people”. In the end, it was Bo Dallas hitting the Bo Dog on Justin Gabriel, picking up the win. After the match, Bo Dallas would dare Jack Swagger to come into the ring, but when “The Real American” gets his hands on Bo Dallas, Dallas quickly slips away, escaping Swagger.

With AJ Lee a guest on commentary, Divas Champion Paige would go one-on-one with Summer Rae, with Layla in her corner, in a non-title match. In the end, it was Paige locking in AJ Lee’s own Black Widow on Summer Rae, making Summer Rae tap out to pick up the win. After the match, Layla would get in the ring, but AJ Lee would attack Layla, using Paige’s Paige Turner to take Layla out! AJ Lee then exits the ring, skipping to the back, leaving an insulted Paige in the ring.

As they prepare to face each other a week from Sunday at Night of Champions, Mark Henry and Rusev, with Lana in tow, would face off in an International Arm Wrestling Contest. After some talk from both sides, the Arm Wrestling Contest would get underway, but Rusev would feign slipping out of Mark Henry’s grip, putting powder on his hands before the two monsters lock hands again. This time, “The World’s Strongest Man” would live up to his name, overpowering Rusev to win the Arm Wrestling Contest. However, Rusev would demand a rematch, this time with both combatants using their left hands, but just when it looked like Mark Henry would win again, Lana throws powder in the eyes of Mark Henry. The blinded Mark Henry was then at the mercy of Rusev, who takes “The World’s Strongest Man” down with a pair of vicious kicks, standing over Mark Henry in celebration of his underhanded tactics. However, when Rusev spots Mark Henry getting to his feet, Rusev would size Henry up before knocking Mark Henry back down with a huge side kick to the face of “The World’s Strongest Man”.

Before he challenges Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Title at Night of Champions, The Miz would team with his “stunt double”, Damien Mizdow, to face Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler and his own stunt double, R-Ziggler! In the end, it was The Miz costing himself the match as The Miz would get in the face of the referee in the ring, allowing Dolph Ziggler & R-Ziggler to double-team Damien Mizdow with R-Ziggler hitting the Zig Zag on Mizdow, pinning Mizdow for the win.

Then it was time for the main event as, nine nights before their respective one-on-one matches at Night of Champions, Chris Jericho would team with Roman Reigns to face “The Viper” Randy Orton and “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Seth Rollins. During the match, the anger of Roman Reigns would boil over, sparking a brawl between Reigns and Seth Rollins that spills out into the crowd. Meanwhile, in the ring, Chris Jericho surprises Randy Orton with a roll-up, pinning “The Viper” to pick up the win for himself and Roman Reigns, leaving a livid Randy Orton in the ring.
