Smackdown Results and Reaction 04.24
The New Day starts with the show celebrating their championship reign. Big E won the triple threat singles match to win back the Smackdown Tag Team Championship titles. It is their 8th world title win, second-most from the Hall of Fame Dudley Boys.
The Lucha House Party (Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado) came out to congratulate the New Day and wanted an opportunity to challenge them for a title match. However, the Miz and John Morrison abruptly interrupted and not acknowledge the Latin stars and went after the New day, demanding a match. Miz did state the truth that the New Day has never defeated Miz & Morrison in a traditional match.
Lastly, the Forgotten Sons marched down with their aggressive attitudes and made it known that they are there to win the tag team titles. Surprisingly, they targeted the New Day and cleaned out the house, leaving New Day lifeless in the middle of the ring.
Reaction: The Forgotten Sons made an outstanding presence in Smackdown. The decision for them to move from NXT is an excellent idea as the rest of the tag team division can put them over. Two thumbs up for the new members of Smackdown.
King Corbin defeated Drew Gulak
Corbin dominated the match. Although Gulak made a comeback, Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura took out Daniel Bryan. Gulak distracted outside the ring cost him the match as Corbin hit him with the "End of Days." for the win.
Reaction: It is no surprise that Corbin would win this match. The only person that would have to deter him from winning is Elias. Corbin advances to the MITB.
Sheamus defeated Daniel Vidot.
Brogue kick city. I mean, let's call it what it is. Sheamus continues to win and we are waiting for the actual contender. On the other hand, Sheamus is still upset with Michael Cole as he took and threw his head seat. Poor Cole.
*Imagination* What if Adam Cole and the Undisputed Era conquered Smackdown? Yeah, imagine that! And the target would be Sheamus and anyone that gets in their way.
Lucha House Party defeated Miz & Morrison.
The weakest link is that of The Miz. He finds himself in the same situation, like the days he partakes in a tag team partner Shane McMahon. Metalik got the roll-up on Miz and pinned him for the win.
Reaction: Things are not looking suitable for the Miz. Would we see the first break up of the tag teams to be Miz and Morrison? The loss cost the tag team a chance to challenge The New Day for the tag team titles. For the Lucha House Party, they might have to fight another obstacle; The Forgotten Sons.
Lacey Evans defeats Sasha Banks
Evans gave the Women's Right and knocked out Banks. Pinned her for the win. Banks dominated most of the match, but Bayley distracted Banks allowing Evans to take advantage.
Reaction: The table has now turned, and we can see Banks distancing away from Bayley. While Bayley and Banks walked away from the ring, Tamina came out and straight kicked Bayley. Tamina and Banks stared at one another. Banks did not do anything about it. As for Evans, she advances to MITB.
Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross defeated Carmella & Dana Brooke
Great match but ended quickly.
Reaction: There is no history between the tag teams. It was an invitation to which we wish it were longer. However, Mella and Brooke can now concentrate on the MITB.
The 25th Anniversary celebration.
