Quick Hits: WWE Smackdown Live 7.4.17

-Yeah, I’m not a big Fourth of July guy so you get my live report tonight!


-John Cena returns. He said people are spreading false rumors about his future and people are calling him a part-timing mascot.

-Cena said he is a full timer. And he is a free agent because if his time in the WWE is limited, he is going down in a blaze of glory.

-So Cena gets to do whatever the fuck he wants because he is John Cena? Okay.

-OUT COMES HANDSOME RUSEV! Rusev asks where his comeback commercials are. Rusev said Cena’s American Dream is a lie just like America is a joke.

-Rusev insults America by saying all we do is eat hot dogs and sit around on the 4th of July.

-Cena challenges Rusev to a Flag match tonight, but Rusev said that they will fight on his terms.

Win And Your In: AJ Styles vs Chad Gable

-The winner gets to be in the #1 Contender Battle Royal later for the U.S. Title. Apparently Kevin Owens complained earlier about these two being in it, so Daniel Bryan said only one can be in.

-Styles and Gable exchange some chain wrestling before Styles catches Gable with a dropkick.

-This time chops are exchanged. Styles ducks the last one and catches Styles with a backbreaker.

-Naomi said her GLOW will always be ready and tells Carmella to bring it any time, anywhere.

-Daniel Bryan came out. He said James Ellsworth is banned from the building, fined $10,000, and suspended for 30 days. And if he doesn’t comply with all of these rules, Carmella loses her MITB Briefcase. Some Carmellabration that was.

SDLive Women’s Championship: Naomi (c) vs Lana- For the Third Time For the Last Time

Rap Battle: New Day vs The Usos

-I have no idea how I’m going to commentate on this.

-The Usos come out with a bunch of “Day Ones.” New Day then has their own entourage.

-One of the Usos made a joke about Xaiver being on Paige’s sec tape: “Don’t get all R rated like your boy Xaiver Woods.”
