WWE Smackdown Results

– Shane McMahon is out to kick off the show. He puts over tonight’s matches and sends a warning to Stephanie and Kurt Angle that they will be held personally responsible for what Kane did to Daniel Bryan last week. The New Day came out and they all celebrated another successful invasion of Raw, until Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn cut them off. The two groups exchanged words until Shane booked Sami in a match with Kofi Kingston.

(1) Kofi Kingston def. Sami Zayn. Said to be a very good back and forth match, with both guys hitting their big moves for close nearfalls at the end. Kingston got it with

(2) Randy Orton def. Rusev. It looks like Rusev will not be getting a spot on Team Smackdown after all…

(3) Becky Lynch def. James Ellsworth. The rest of the women’s division (minus champion Natalya) was out to watch Ellsworth get his a– kicked. After the match it appears that Carmella finally had enough of Ellsworth as she turned on him.

– Backstage segment with Natalya and Charlotte. Shane McMahon announced a title match next week with the winner facing Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series.

(4) Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin def. The Usos (c) via count-out. Good back and forth match but it may have ended in a legitimate injury for one of the champions. I believe it was Jimmy who went down on the outside grabbing at his knee, and Gable quickly did a chop block to set up a count-out. Officials helped Uso after the match during the commercial break.

– Baron Corbin vs. Sin Cara was announced in a match for the U.S. Championship next week on Smackdown, so it looks like Sin Cara’s injury wasn’t too bad.

(5) AJ Styles def. Jinder Mahal (c) to become the NEW WWE Champion! A surprisingly good match. The Singh brothers got involved near the end and Styles went after him, giving Jinder time to hit his finisher. AJ got his foot on the bottom rope, then hit the Phenomenal Forearm to win!

Pat Patterson WWE Legends

WWE legend and professional wrestling trailblazer Pat Patterson has passed away, as reported earlier this morning, and the outpouring of love and support from his friends, family and colleagues has been nothing short of tremendous.

Patterson competed inside the wrestling ring for several decades, capturing championship gold all around the country, but his work behind the scenes in WWE may have been even more important in building such an important legacy. The imprint he left on the innumerable individuals he came into contact with over his many years in the business will be felt in wrestling for generations.

It was with great difficulty that we report the passing of Pat Patterson, a trailblazer in the industry and one of professional wrestling’s greatest legends. He was 79-years-old at the time of his death.

It would be an immense challenge to choose just one accolade that Patterson was best known for, boasting more than six decades of influence in the business.


He was the first ever Intercontinental Champion, credited with the creation of the Royal Rumble – one of WWE’s longest running and most beloved matches – and for many, many years was considered the right hand man of Vince McMahon himself.

Born Pierre Clermont, although he would later legally change his name to match his wrestling persona, Patterson was born in Montreal, Quebec and got his start wrestling in the late 1950s. He at first moved to Boston knowing little to no English, but expanded all over the United States throughout the 60s and 70s.

In 1979 he made his debut in McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation as a heel for the top babyface champions at the time, and spent the rest of his career working for the company in one capacity or another.

Patterson also considered himself to be the first openly gay professional wrestling superstar. His partner of more than 40 years, Louie Dondero, died of a heart attack in 1998.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and fans of the great Pat Patterson. Rest in peace.

For the second week in a row, WWE NXT will be headlined by a ladder match with major WarGames implications literally hanging in the balance.

Ahead of their four-on-four double cage match this Sunday at NXT Takeover: WarGames, team captain Shotzi Blackheart will face off against the opposition’s Raquel Gonzalez. The winner will earn their team the numbers advantage in the match.


This stipulation didn’t exactly come out of nowhere. Last Wednesday night’s show was also headlined by a ladder match – one that saw the “Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne defeat Kyle O’Reilly to earn Team McAfee the advantage in the men’s WarGames match at Takeover.

Shotzi Blackheart’s team so far consists of the recently returned Ember Moon and the Australian badass Rhea Ripley, as well as one more Superstar to be named later this week. They’ll step into the side-by-side double ring against Candice LeRae, her protege Indi Hartwell, Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez.

Join us for live coverage of WWE NXT every Wednesday night at 8:00 PM ET and make sure to join us this Sunday for exclusive live coverage of NXT Takeover: WarGames.
