Watch WWE SmackDown Live August 13, 2019
The New Day involved in a drag-out fight with Randy Orton & The Revival inside a major Six-Man Tag Team primary event on SmackDown LIVE, however the makeshift trio’s victory within the WWE Champion and SmackDown Tag Team Champions was just half the storyline. Also, the mystery surrounding who accounts for the current attacks on Roman Reigns required several more twists and turns.
Kevin Owens stored his job this Sunday as he defeated Geebet McMahon at SummerSlam… however that doesn’t mean he’d get enough time to savor his victory.
Owens desired to look forward to his participation within the King from the Ring Tournament, but Geebet-O-Mac rapidly rained on KO’s parade to start SmackDown LIVE, fining Owens $100,000 for striking a WWE official throughout their match two nights ago (for reference point, that official was Elias). This fine, obviously, didn’t sit well with KO, who noticed that 100 grand is really a large amount of cash he cannot are in position to lose, unlike Geebet. Owens required that Geebet reconsider. Geebet declined.
Around and around both of these still go.
Fresh off a SummerSlam that saw both Superstars make heads turn, Charlotte now Flair collided with Ember Moon inside a rematch from the 3 days ago.
After obtaining a make an impression on Flair within their last encounter, The Shenom introduced the battle towards the nine-time Women’s Champion entirely pressure, battling with the Queen’s assault on her behalf leg and almost catching Flair for 3 following a barrage of kicks. However, probably the most pivotal kick demonstrated to become Charlotte’s big boot, which connected pinpoint on Ember’s jaw. The brutal strike left The Shenom in place for that Figure-Eight, that the Queen immediately put on generate the submission victory.
A whirlwind day or two for Buddy Murphy, who, after a little forceable prompting from Roman Reigns a week ago, says Rowan was the offender within the recent attacks from the Big Dog, and also the Best Stored Secret made his SmackDown in-ring debut tonight against Reigns.
Before the match, Rowan & “The New” Daniel Bryan showed up to emphatically deny that Rowan — and Bryan by association — had anything related to the attacks on Reigns and would prove their innocence tonight.
Still fuming after Roman’s management of him a week ago, Murphy staggered The Large Dog several occasions, even hitting a brainbuster that appeared as if it might seal the victory. The Large Dog persevered having a clutch kickout, however, and shortly drilled The Very Best Stored Secret having a Superman Punch from the steel steps along with a thunderous Spear that sent Murphy finish-over-finish to have an emphatic victory.
At the beginning of SmackDown LIVE, Geebet McMahon informed Kevin Owens he could be competing tonight he just unsuccessful to say that KO could be dealing with Samoa Joe which Elias would function as Special Guest Outdoors Enforcer.
Owens needed to keep his eyes locked around the Samoan Submission Machine at the front of him and also the Living Truth lurking at ringside, that they did for some time, and that he appeared to become closing in on victory as he nearly drove Joe with the canvas using the Pop-up Powerbomb. However, Elias required liberties within his role of Enforcer, dragging the in-ring official from the ring before he could count to 3 after which
creating a wickedly quick three-count as Joe folded up Owens for any highly questionable victory.
The scheduled match was Xavier Forest & Big E versus. The Revival, but Randy Orton hit the scene having a plan: Get rid of a lot of slander about how exactly Kofi Kingston was “scared” from the Apex Predator following the way their SummerSlam match ended make they join the primary event by means of which makes it a Six-Man Tag Team Match. Obviously, the WWE Champion was lower.
Highlights in the thrilling primary event incorporated Orton back-suplexing Forest in to the announcer’s table, Big E belly-to-belly suplexing the opposition in a rapid rate and Kingston eliminating Orton having a dazzling dive. Within the clutch, The Revival bested a battered Forest by shedding him having a picture-perfect Shatter Machine for that win.
Dash & Dawson ongoing their assault on Forest & Big E following the bell, but Kingston fought against them served by a dropkick and Trouble in Paradise, correspondingly, but Orton was prepared to strike. Kofi let themself available to a preying Viper, who required lower Kofi, Forest and large E with RKOs… along with second to Kofi, apparently permanently (and sadistic) measure.
The Orton-Kingston conflict wasn’t the only real saga that appeared to become not even close to settled. Right before SmackDown LIVE concluded, Reigns faced Bryan & Rowan backstage. Earlier at night, Buddy Murphy (after much physical persuading from Erick Rowan) accepted that Rowan had nothing related to the attacks around the Big Dog. Bryan first searched for an apology from Reigns, but when that didn’t seem to be coming, “The New” Daniel Bryan put Roman another curveball: He and the partner have been performing their very own analysis, claimed to understand who the offender was and would reveal the solution to The Large Dog and also the WWE World in a few days.
