Smackdown Results

*Live from Austin, TX.

*Sami Zayn backstage with Kayla…Honorary Uce is excited that the Usos will get to keep Drew & Sheamus out of Money in the Bank…he dedicates his upcoming match with Nakamura to Roman…Sami not pleased at Kayla’s insinuation that he would cash in on Roman if he wins MitB.

(1)  Money in the Bank Men’s Qualifier: Sami Zayn def. Shinsuke Nakamura…Sami catches Nakamura coming back into the ring & lands a Helluva Kick for the win (09:54).

*New Day tell Jinder Mahal & Shanky that they beat them clean last week, so no one wants to see a rematch…but they do want to see Shanky dance…Shanky dances…Jinder is pissed, yells at Shanky…Shanky shoves Jinder…Jinder leaves…Shanky dances some more until a the Viking Raiders arrive & decimate New Day & Shanky.

*Sonya Deville visits Adam Pearce’s office…she busts his chops over having his MitB decision overruled…and complains that she hasn’t had a match in weeks…so Pearce books her in a handicap match…right now…after the break, Sonya heads to the ring with Shayna Baszler & Xia Li to watch her back.

(2)  Raquel Rodriguez & Lacey Evans def. Sonya Deville…in a 2-on-1 HANDICAP MATCH…Shayna & Xia try to interfere/distract, but to little effect…Raquel whips Sonya into Lacey’s Women’s Right for the win (03:07)…AFTER…Sonya & Xia immediately attack but Raquel & Lacey hold the ring.

*Street Profits babbling backstage…they cross paths with Los Lotharios…then Drew Gulak, training for a ladder match…then Madcap Moss…Dawkins tells Moss an awful joke…and that’s 60 seconds of my life I’ll never get back.

*Natalya comes to the ring, cosplaying as Ronda Rousey (complete with hideous eye makeup & a baby stroller)…Natty-Ronda taps out in advance, for fear of the far superior Sharpshooter…then the real Ronda Rousey interrupts, with some harsh words for Natty…Ronda rips off Natty’s leather jacket…Natty beats Ronda with the baby stroller & bails.

*Drew McIntyre & Sheamus backstage with Megan…they clearly are not on the same page as a team at the moment…will they get it together in time for the main event?

(3)  Gunther def. Ricochet…retains his Intercontinental Championship…Gunther follows up the shotgun dropkick with a ragdoll Powerbomb for the win (03:09).

*Paul Heyman backstage with Kayla…Sami Zayn interrupts, still heated about Kayla’s line of questioning from earlier…Sami would never cash in on Roman…but he would cash in on Brock…to even consider the idea of Roman losing does not make Heyman happy.

(4)  Money in the Bank Women’s Qualifier: Shotzi def. Tamina…Shotzi uses the Never Wake Up (leg-capture, modified DDT) for the win (02:40).

*Viking Raiders promo…they’ve been pushed to the side for too long…now, no one is safe.

(5)  Money in the Bank Men’s Qualifier: Drew McIntyre & Sheamus def. UsosHolland tries to keep Butch from the ring, taking the ref’s attention…Sami Zayn tries to attack McIntyre on the floor, but gets cut off by Angelo Dawkins…Jimmy stops a Claymore with a Superkick, but can’t avoid McIntyre hitting the 2nd Claymore for the win (11:14)…as a result, both Sheamus & McIntyre are back in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
