WWE SmackDown Results: September 26, 2014

Knockout for America.

Five nights after Night of Champions, the 788th edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown came to you from the Verizon Arena in Little Rock, AR. Following an altercation between the two former United States Champions on WWE Main Event on Tuesday night, the unhinged and unpredictable “Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose would go one-on-one with the self-proclaimed “A-Lister” The Miz on SmackDown!

It has certainly been a rollercoaster week for Dolph Ziggler already as “The Show-Off” lost the Intercontinental Title to The Miz at Night of Champions only to win the title back one night later on RAW and, now on SmackDown, Dolph Ziggler would face his third title match of the week against an unknown opponent as a Battle Royal would take place to determine the new #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title and the winner of the Battle Royal would challenge “The Show-Off” for the Intercontinental Title later in the evening!

Another championship that changed hands at Night of Champions was the WWE Tag Team Championship as Gold & Stardust defeated The Usos to end the 202-day reign of the twin brothers, but The Usos would get the opportunity to regain their gold as The Usos would challenge Gold & Stardust for the WWE Tag Team Titles on SmackDown.

Also, after his friend and tag team partner, Mark Henry, suffered back-to-back crushing losses to Rusev at Night of Champions and on RAW, “The World’s Largest Athlete” would step in to avenge “The World’s Strongest Man” on SmackDown as Big Show would go one-on-one with “The Hero of the Russian Federation” Rusev.
