|Tamina vs Charlotte Flair - SRC wwe dot com|
WWE Smackdown Live December 5, 2017 Results and Review
The starting line of the show was Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn going to the ring and cutting a promo, only to get Randy Orton to show up and hit Owens with an RKO, out of nowhere. That led to Shane McMahon showing up and talking about the show, and the match that will take place in the main event. We’ll go forward.
Rusev and Aiden English defeated The New Day
The New Day came out throwing around pancakes into the crowd, I kid you not. They were throwing pancakes out, and it wasn’t half bad. The match was ok, it wasn’t incredible, but it didn’t suck either. Rusev and Aiden English did manage to fight a better option than the New Day and would even get a nice win for their trouble. They will be added to the Tag Team title match at the next PPV, so it will be quite interesting overall to see how everything goes down.
Bobby Roode defeated Baron Corbin via DQ
This was a lousy match, and I didn’t like it at all. Roode was going through simple motions, but it was Dolph Ziggler that interfered and caused the match to get thrown out. The match was ok, the guys are good in singles matches sometimes, but this was obviously just to setup a triple threat match for the PPV. I’m sure the match will be good, but you’ll probably see Ziggler lose again, as per usual.
The Bludgeon Brothers defeated Adam James and Josh Carr
This was a burial of two jobbers. Nothing else.
Charlotte Flair defeated Tamina
The commentary team kept saying that Tamina was the strongest woman in the WWE, and well, she wasn’t. Charlotte Flair got the win here, and that’s really all you need to know. It was a boring match to say the least.
Randy Orton defeated Sami Zayn
Kevin Owens was handcuffed at ringside. It was funny to see him squirm for the most part, and well it seemed like he wasn’t going to be there for long. He kept fighting it, but eventually had to or he’d be suspended. Well, eventually Zayn brought out some wire cutters and that prompted Owens to get free, and help Zayn, only for Orton to get the upper hand anyways, and get the big win. Orton would win, Zayn would lose, and that was that.
After the match, they announced that Shane McMahon would be the special guest referee for a tag match which would feature Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton versus Owens and Zayn, and if the duo didn’t win, they’d be fired.
That was a result of Shinsuke Nakamura running down to the ring and saving Orton from a beat down.
Overall, not a great night of wrestling, but not the worst night either. It was a quick show, and it ended well enough, but I feel like there’s so many other talents on the roster that you don’t see, like the Perfect 10? What about Mike Kinellis? Where’s Everyone else?
