Quick Results From Tonight’s WWE SmackDown Live
Posted By: WrestlingNewsSource.com on Apr 16, 2019
Below are quick results from tonight’s edition of WWE SmackDown Live, which was also the second night of the 2019 WWE Superstar Shake-Up:
* In his backyard of Montreal, Kevin Owens kicked off SmackDown LIVE’s portion of the Superstar Shake-up by hosting “The Kevin Owens Show” with guests WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods of The New Day.
KO spoke passionately in front of his country people, speaking in their native tongue of French-Canadian to say that tonight was his WrestleMania before welcoming Kingston & Woods (Big E is recovering from injuries sustained last week). Owens was incredibly congratulatory of all Kingston has accomplished in recent months, leading a massive ovation from the WWE Universe in Montreal’s Belle Center. Following Woods having a mini-panic attack over the Superstar Shake-up really cutting into his UpUpDownDown roster, Owens tossed around the idea that he (Big O) should be the newest honorary member of The New Day. Owens proved that he had the hip techniques to join the ranks, and with the WWE Universe fully in support, Big O was bestowed with a New Day crop top and a Unicorn bandana, confirming his status as the newest member of The New Day.
Watching on were Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura, who were scheduled to have a tag team match against Kingston & Woods tonight. However, also seeing this jovialness in disgust was Cesaro, who suggested that tonight’s bout should now be a Six-Man Tag Team Match.
New alignment for The New Day and, seemingly, new challenges too.
* Finn Bálor def. Ali
Before the first commercial break of the show, Finn Balor made his debut on SmackDown Live in competition against Ali taking the Intercontinental Championship to the Blue Brand with him.
* Charlotte defeated Carmella
* Lars arrives on SmackDown to attack R-Truth. Truth tries to fight him off, but Lars laughs and hits freak accident.
* Becky Lynch comes out to address the SmackDown Live audience before she's interrupted by Ember Moon and Bayley. The IIconics interrupt them. The Absolution interrupts them. Then, Asuka and Kairi Sane come out as a brand new tag team announced by Paige. This results in an 8-Man Tag Team match.
Vince McMahon comes out and announces the biggest acquisition to SmackDown ever as Elias. Elias comes out and plays some music before he's attacked by Roman Reigns! Roman takes out Elias and Vince with Superman Punches to close the show!
