A Menacing Family Reunion.

The 885th edition of WWE SmackDown Live came to you, live, from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. On the first SmackDown Live of a new era last week, the main event of the evening saw an unexpected #1 Contender emerge as Dolph Ziggler survived a Six Pack Challenge against John Cena, AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, Baron Corbin, & Apollo Crews to earn himself a shot at the WWE World Championship against Dean Ambrose in a little under three weeks at SummerSlam! Now that Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler are on their path to “The Biggest Event of the Summer” with the prestigious WWE World Title on the line, what will go down between Ambrose and Ziggler on SmackDown Live? Also on SmackDown Live, the ongoing rivalry between AJ Styles and John Cena would continue as “The Phenomenal One” will reportedly make an appearance on SmackDown Live with a message for John Cena. In addition, SmackDown Live will see the main roster debut of former NXT Tag Team Champions American Alpha! How will Chad Gable & Jason Jordan make an impact in their first night on SmackDown Live?

Match Results

  • #1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match: Apollo Crews def. Kalisto and Baron Corbin by rolling up Kalisto to become the new #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title.
  • American Alpha def. The Vaudevillains by Chad Gable pinning Aiden English with a bridging back suplex.
  • Randy Orton def. Fandango (with Tyler Breeze) by DQ after Brock Lesnar interferes.
  • #1 Contender’s Match: Dolph Ziggler def. Bray Wyatt by pin following a super kick after sending Bray Wyatt face-first into the exposed steel turnbuckle. As a result, Dolph Ziggler keeps his #1 Contender’s spot.
