WWE held a SmackDown-exclusive Live Event last night from Daytona Beach, following the Supershow in Jacksonville which featured superstars from both the brands.
The show started off with a high octane encounter with the only three relevant teams on the SmackDown brand, New Day, Revival and Heavy Machinery competing for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. The New Day reigned supreme once again and successfully retained their titles.
Nikki Cross took up a surprise victory over Sasha Banks in a singles encounter.
Mustafa Ali competed against fellow mid-card superstar Cesaro, and the babyface won the match, continuing the streak of babyfaces winning their matches.
The Fiend found a new opponent this week as Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura faced the Universal Champion in a Steel Cage. Fiend successfully held onto his prized possession.
Sami Zayn had an encounter at ringside when he shooed off a homophobic fan. The fan was later ejected from the arena.
The first half of the show came to an end with the Universal Title Match. The next half began with Shorty G taking on former Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak. The Olympian won the match with the Ankle Lock submission.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley took on the Princess of Staten Island, Carmella, who looked to win the title once again. Bayley won the match with a dirty pin, using the ropes for leverage.
The main event of the evening saw the Big Dog Roman Reigns continue his rivalry against King Corbin. The two superstars have been fighting on almost every house show in recent weeks and featured in the main event of this SmackDown Exclusive show.
Corbin was at the receiving end of yet another crushing defeat at the hands of the Big Dog.
