Quick Hits: WWE Smackdown Live 1.31.17

New Smackdown Logo

-AJ Styles is in the back with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan. He wants a one-on-one rematch, not an Elimination Chamber. Styles is in the Chamber though, along with Bray Wyatt, Miz, Baron Corbin and Dean Ambrose. Shane then makes Ambrose/Styles for later.

John Cena Promo

-John Cena’s new shirt might be his ugliest one yet.

-Cena apologized for calling AJ Styles “Just A Guy From Atlanta.” He said Styles performance was what the WWE Title is all about.

-Bray Wyatt comes out with Randy Orton. Oh god, I don’t want Orton and Cena in the same segments leading up to Mania.

-Bray said after the Chamber, he will be leaving WWE Champion. He must read the Wrestling Observer.

-Orton said the Wyatts are going to set the WWE Title free. Orton and Bray walked to the ring. Right as they are about to enter, Luke Harper appears. He apparently still has the Wyatt Family teleportation powers despite being out of the group.

-Shane McMahon, channeling his inner Teddy Long, makes Harper/Cena vs Orton/Bray.

-Cena playing the babyface in peril back from break.

-Luke Harper finally gets into the ring. He goes after Orton, then tries a Sister Abigail on Bray. Orton breaks it up, then Bray hits Sister Abigail on Harper. Cena goes to AA Bray, but Orton breaks it up and hits the RKO on Cena and pins him clean.

WINNERS: Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton

Carmella vs Delilah Dawson

-James Ellsworth is out here looking like Machine Gun Kelly. He calls Carmella his boo, which he shouldn’t.

WINNER: Carmella

Kalisto vs Dolph Ziggler

-Kalisto needs to start jumping over a wall on his way to the ring.

-Apollo Crews comes out to no reaction and saves Kalisto.

WINNER: Dolph Ziggler

Naomi and Becky Lynch vs Alexa Bliss and Mickie James

-Becky did an interview where she talked about being attacked from all angles. And yeah I have a dirty mind.

-LSD levels on Naomi’s entrance: 8.5.

-Becky gets the hot tag and finally gets her hands on Mickie James.

-Becky finally makes the hot tag to Naomi. She dropkicks Mickie James off the apron.

-The heels try to double team Naomi, but Becky Lynch comes in and takes out Mickie. Naomi hits an enziguri kick on Alexa then hits a split leg moonsault for the win. Solid match.

WINNERS: Naomi and Becky Lynch

American Alpha Open Challenge For The Smackdown Tag Titles

-Every tag team on the Smackdown roster comes out. I was REALLY hoping for The Revival. They all brawl.

-Back from break everyone is still brawling. And it eventually just ends? Okay.

-Daniel Bryan made Nikki Bella vs Natalya at the Elimination Chamber PPV. It should be No DQ.

Dean Ambrose vs AJ Styles

-Styles suckers Ambrose to the outside then slams him into the announce table.

-Styles then in the ring lands Daniel Bryan’s kicks, which Miz claims are his on commentary.

-Styles goes for a Phenomenal Forearm but Ambrose catches Styles with one of his own. But Styles blocks the attempted suicide dive from Ambrose with a forearm.

-Both men get some offense in. Styles hits a Pele kick but Ambrose bounces back with the Lunatic Clothesline.

-Corbin and Miz start brawling on the outside. It distracts the ref from counting Ambrose’s pin on Styles. Styles kicks out at two. Ambrose hits a dive to the outside, but comes back into the ring and eats a Styles Clash to give AJ the win.

-After the match. Miz hits a Skull Crushing Finale on Ambrose. Corbin then hits the End of Days on Miz and Ambrose.
