WWE was live from the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania and it was the SmackDown roster that entertained the crowd. The Raw roster was busy competing at their brand-exclusive Pay Per View – Hell In a Cell – which saw history being made as Sasha Banks and Charlotte main evented the PPV and became the first women Superstars to ever compete inside the Cell. Here are the results from the live event in Allentown:
#1 Jack Swagger vs. Tyler Breeze
Jack Swagger has failed to send shockwaves to the WWE Universe following his switch from Raw to SmackDown. Swagger has been feuding with Baron Corbin ever since his switch but at the live event he had a different opponent in Tyler Breeze with different skill sets. However, Swagger overcame the challenge of Breeze and locked him in the Patriot Lock for the win.
Result: Jack Swagger defeats Tyler Breeze via submission
#2 Kalisto vs. Baron Corbin
As already mentioned, Corbin has been seen competing against Jack Swagger in recent weeks but the duo had different opponents this time around. In fact, last week it was Tyler Breeze and Kalisto who were witnessed competing in a live event together following the return of the Luchador, who had been sidelined for a while now.
The Lone Wolf hit The End of Days on Kalisto to pin him for the win.
Result: Baron Corbin defeats Kalisto via pinfall
#3 Curt Hawkins and The Vaudevillains (Simon Gotch & Aiden English) vs. Apollo Crews and The Hype Bros. (Mojo Rowley and Zack Ryder)
The latest member of the Blue Brand – Curt Hawkins – teamed up with The Vaudevillains to take on The Hype Bros and Apollo Crews. The Hype Bros defeated The Ascension last week to cement a spot in SmackDown’s team for the 5 vs 5 traditional Elimination match which will take place at Survivor Series. While Curt Hawkins was seen feuding with Apollo Crews recently and it all boiled down to a good match at the PPL Center in Allentown.
The Hype Bros and Apollo Crews recorded the win over The Vaudevillains and Curt Hawkins via pinfall.
Result: Apollo Crews and The Hype Bros. beat Curt Hawkins and The Vaudevillains via pinfall
#4 Street Fight: Kane vs. Randy Orton
Following last week’s unexpected and rather shocking Heel turn of Randy Orton, wherein he RKO-ed Kane outta nowhere in a match against Bray Wyatt to help The Eater of Worlds take the win, it was time for The Viper to face the wrath of The Big Red Machine. Last week after SmackDown, Orton had dropped a huge hint that he could be joining the Wyatt Family when he said: “When you can’t beat them, join them.”
It looks like WWE are furthering that angle even on house shows as Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt interfered in the Street Fight between Orton and Kane. They distracted the Big Red Machine, which allowed Orton to take advantage and nail the RKO for the win. Following the win, the trio posed together – NEW MEMBER OF THE WYATT FAMILY?
Result: Randy Orton defeats Kane via pinfall
