WWE SmackDown LIVE SPOILERS For Next Week (1/1)
Posted By: Kenny Williams on Dec 29, 2018
WWE taped next week’s edition of SmackDown LIVE from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania tonight. The broadcast will air on New Year’s Day rather than being held live due to the holiday.
Full spoilers can be found below.
-It is announced that a Fatal 5 Way Match will take place on the show featuring AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton, Mustafa Ali, and a mystery participant. The winner of that match will challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble event.
-The New Day come to the ring and announce that they all will compete in the Royal Rumble Match. They then take shots at Brock Lesnar, stating that if they win, they will have to challenge for the WWE Championship since “the Universal Champion won’t show up.” They also state that their doctor has ordered that they eat no more pancakes and that they are done throwing pancakes to the crowd.
-Samoa Joe defeated Jeff Hardy to earn the final spot in the Fatal 5 Way Match.
-AJ Styles is shown backstage with Shane and Vince McMahon. Styles says he will not apologize for assaulting Vince last week and that he will show the real side of himself tonight, unless Vince wants to see it again in-person. Styles walks away, and Shane tells Vince to be careful what he wishes for.
-New United States Champion Rusev comes to the ring, accompanied by Lana. Rusev tells the crowd that the championship means a lot to him, and that he can’t wait to defend it. The crowd begins chanting for Rusev before he is attacked from behind by Shinsuke Nakamura. Lana then jumps on Nakamura’s back, but he falls backwards to get her off of him. Rusev goes to her aid, but is hit twice with the Kinshasa. Nakamura then picks up the championship and holds it in the air before throwing it on Rusev.
-Sonya Deville defeated Naomi following a distraction from Mandy Rose, in which she announced that she had sent Naomi’s husband, Jimmy Uso, a photo earlier in the day. The photo showed Mandy wrapped in a towel.
-John Cena comes to the ring and talks about how busy 2018 has been for him. After stating that the crowd is likely wondering why he’s there, he is interrupted by Becky Lynch. Lynch tells Cena that she has been aiming for him since he’s the marquee star of WWE. She then says that if Cena keeps it up, “Nikki Bella won’t be the only woman to drop you this year.” Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega then interrupt, leading Cena to insult them and suggest that the four compete in a Mixed Tag Team Match.
-John Cena & Becky Lynch defeated Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega in a Mixed Tag Team Match. During the match, Cena hit both of his finishing maneuvers on Almas, but was then thrown from the ring by Lynch. Vega attempts to get the win with a roll-up on Lynch, but Lynch gets the win with the Disarm-Her.
-The Miz enters Shane McMahon’s office and thanks him for giving their new team a chance. Miz then suggests that Shane dress like him in order for them “to be true Co-Besties.” Miz produces a mock-up photo of him and Shane wearing the same gear, which causes Shane to run off.
-SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka is asked by Triple H backstage who she feels deserves a championship opportunity. Asuka says that she will face anyone. Charlotte Flair, Carmella, and Becky Lynch all enter and say they deserve a title shot. Triple H says that he will speak to the members of the McMahon family and let the ladies know what their final decision is.
-AJ Styles defeated Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton, Mustafa Ali, and Samoa Joe in a Fatal 5 Way Match, meaning that he will challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble. During the match, Styles was put through the announce table by Joe, but Styles was later able to get the win by pinning Orton.
