Quick Hits: WWE Smackdown Live 4.4.17
Randy Orton Promo
-Orton comes out to a mixed reaction, with the boos slightly winning out. IT’S BIZARRO WORLD MAGGLE!
-Orton says he is the master which triggers Bray Wyatt. Bray says before his rematch he has something planned for Orton.
-Bray says he is going to pretty much be playing mind games with Orton. Or apparently a house of horrors match. Okay? Bray accepts.
-Bray appears in the ring and attacks Orton. Erik Rowan returns and starts beating down Orton until Luke Harper appears for the save as Bray and Rowan retreat.
Smackdown Live Women’s Championship: Naomi (c) vs Alexa Bliss
-I wonder if anyone actually takes LSD during Naomi’s entrance and has a bad trip?
-Naomi slams Alexa’s head into the turnbuckle then dropkicks her on the outside.
-During the break, Alexa started to work over the knee of Naomi and continues here.
-Douchebag fans are bouncing around beach balls again. Just like with the cruiserweights, these will be the same fans who bitch about the women getting no respect or time online while they bounce a beach ball during their match.
-Alexa hits a nice DDT but eventually runs into the Rear View of Naomi.
-Alexa pulls Naomi off the ropes. Naomi reverses a pin attempt and applies her new finisher from Wrestlemania and Alexa taps.
WINNER and STILL Smackdown Live Women’s Champion: Naomi
Curt Hawkins vs Tye Dillinger
-Hawkins issues an open challenge. And he was going to give someone to the count of ten to come out. Immediately Tye Dillinger’s music hit.
-Dillinger makes quick work of Hawkins and wins with the Tye-Breaker.
WINNER: Tye Dillinger
-Mojo gave a pretty nice promo saying winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal is just the start for him.
Miz and Maryse Segment
-Miz came out dressed as John Cena and Maryse came out dressed like Nikki.
-MizCena says their relationship is still fake. And they (Cena and Nikki) are leaving the WWE.
-Suddenly, the lights went down, and the violin hit. AND SHINSUKE MOTHER FUCKING NAKAMURA APPEARED. He did his entrance and when he came in the ring, Miz and Maryse bailed.
-I’m fine with Miz taking a powder and leaving there. It’s going to build to the King of Soft Style vs the King of Strong Style.
Street Fight: Dean Ambrose (c) vs Baron Corbin
-Corbin goes to the outside and gets a chair but Ambrose dropkicks the chair into him.
-Ambrose then dumps Corbin over the barricade and dives onto him.
-There’s a table in the corner and multiple chairs in the ring. Corbin ends up spearing Ambrose through the table.
-Corbin sets a chair up in the corner, but Ambrose moves and Corbin goes right into it. Ambrose uses a leather belt on Corbin.
-Ambrose sets Corbin up on a table on the outside and elbow drops Corbin off the top through the table.
-Ambrose goes to the top but Corbin throws a chair at him. Corbin then hits the End of Days to win.
WINNER: Baron Corbin: Apparently this match wasn’t for the IC Title like I thought it was. Why would Corbin ask for this match and not also demand it be for the Title? Makes no sense. Better then their Wrestlemania match.
Shane McMahon Addresses The Superstar Shake-Up
-AJ Styles comes out to confront Shane. AJ says he doesn’t want to go anywhere because Smackdown Live is the House that AJ Styles Built.
-Styles says he owes Shane something and shakes his hand. AJ then makes it look like he will punch Shane but holds back. Weird segment.
Randy Orton and Luke Harper vs Bray Wyatt and Erik Rowan
-Harper gets the hot tag back from commercial and goes to work. He hits a dive to the outside on Rowan but then eats a clohtesline from Bray.
-Harper gets worked over then he makes the hot tag to Orton. Two hot tags in one match!
-Orton goes for the RKO on Bray. But Bray does some BOOGITY BOO and escapes. Orton then hits the RKO on Rowan for the win.
WINNERS: Randy Orton and Luke Harper
OVERALL: Nakamura and Dillinger’s debuts were great. Ambrose/Corbin was fun. And it looks like AJ Styles may have finally turned face. But this Orton/Wyatt feud is just awful. And I can’t wait to see what awful shit they come up with for this House of Horrors match. There is nothing saving it. Alexa’s loss makes me think she is on the move to RAW. A swap of her and Charlotte would make sense.
