Here's a tweet to send y'all home happy.


...
Alright folks, that's all from us here at SK. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of SD Live. Until next time, Sk out! \m/
...

...
Orton comes in, and goes right after Harper but Wyatt gets entangled in proceedings. However, Orton sets up the second rope DDT and nail him with it.

Before he can capitalise however, the lights go out, and when they come back on, Wyatt is on the ramp and Rowan almost ambushes Orton from behind. It takes a timely superkick from Harper to extricate him from Orton, and the Viper follows up with an RKO.

Cover! 1-2-3!

Randy Orton and Luke Harper def. Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan

Bray Wyatt laughs at Orton from the ramp, but it's yet another match where they've had him come out looking weak. Orton ends SmackDown with Harper, holding up his WWE title to the audience.
...
Rowan continues the offence on Harper, as it's pretty obvious that the match is meandering to a situation where the hot tag to Orton can be made. Wyatt tags in meanwhile, and holds Harper down with a chinlock.

However, when Harper makes it back to his feet, Wyatt tries to run the ropes and knock him down. But instead, he eats a body slam from Harper, and the hot tag is made!
...
...
We resume after the break, with Wyatt and Harper in action. The excommunicated member of the Wyatt Family dishes out slick offence for a man his size, before hitting a tope suicida through the ropes onto Rowan.

Bray capitalizes on the momentary shift of attention and levels Rowan with a painful sounding clothesline. With Harper clearly on the defensive, Bray and Luke Harper take turns in piling on him.
...

Randy Orton and Luke Harper vs Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan 

Wyatt comes out with Rowan by his side, followed by Harper and Orton. The Champion opens the match against Rowan.

Rowan measures up Orton a bit, but his lunging attempt at a clothesline is easily sidestepped.

But when Orton tries to counter with an early RKO, he eats a spinning roundhouse kick for his troubles.
...
...
Styles' message is short, sweet and well received. He says he doesn't want to leave and that everyone knows that he built SD Live! He goes on to say that he just came out to level with Shane McMahon.

He offers his hand to Shane, and they shake hands, much to the crowd's delight. AJ then motions to turn away, before faking a punch to Shane. He then poses for the crowd instead and they pop again!

He walks back up the ramp, mouthing that Shane won his respect at Mania. Good, crisp segment all around.
...
Shane McMahon is out next to address the "Superstar Shakeup" that Vince McMahon announced yesterday on Raw

He looks pretty spritely for a man that wrestled a gruelling match at Mania, and the crowd lets him know of their gratitude. He arguably wrestled the match of the night against Styles too.

He opens by thanking the crowd, and addresses the Superstar Shakeup. Before he can say too much, AJ Styles' music hits and out comes the phenomenal one! 

Oh, and the crowd volume just went up a notch. 
...
...
Ambrose then pushes him out of the ring, onto a table, and elbow drops him to hell from the top rope! Shades of Macho Man! But it isn't enough to keep Corbin down, as the Lone Wolf gathers his wits about him and catches Ambrose with the End of Days as he is making his way back into the ring!

Cover! 1-2-3!

Baron Corbin def Dean Ambrose via pinfall!
...
We're back from the break, but perhaps unsurprisingly, it's Corbin in control. He crushes Ambrose with a painful looking spike through a table that's set up over on one corner of the ring.

While Ambrose slowly recoups, Corbin gets a leather strap and starts belting the Champion on the back. Ambrose writhes around in pain, but manages to squirm away and sidestep an oncoming Corbin headfirst onto a chair that's been propped up between two ropes.
...
He lays Ambrose out and goes outside the ring to fish a chair from underneath it. Ambrose seizes the moment and hits a missile dropkick through the ropes that sees Corbin go crashing over the Announcer's table.

He poses on top of the table as we cut to a break.
...
Dean Ambrose vs Baron Corbin in a Street Fight

Baron Corbin and Dean Ambrose, the champion, go at it once again in a street fight as the Lone Wolf gets another shot at the Intercontinental Champion after losing to him at WrestleMania 33.

Corbin, predictably, starts off strong and goes after Ambrose hard, unleashing some of that Golden Gloves-level boxing.
...
...
Nakamura makes his entrance, draped in regal red, with the audience bellowing out his theme music. This man's charisma is off the charts. Really. Whatever the "X-factor" is in pro-wrestling, Shinsuke Nakamura's got it and then some.

When he collapses in front of the ropes, the audience as one voice, screams "Yeaoh!". Behold the King. Behold him in all his glory. What a mind-blowing entrance!

Miz and Maryse are nowhere to be seen. But that doesn't really matter. All eyes are strained on Nakamura. He doesn't say anything, but just the patented hand sign is sufficient to pop the arena.

His music plays again, almost as though the WWE is pinching us to remind that it's true. It's damn true.


...
He starts playing the theme that has enthralled NXT audience over the world. I can't believe this. It's Shinsuke Nakamura. It's Shinsuke Frigging Nakamura!

The King of Strong Style is in the house. What an entrance! What a brilliantly scripted entrance with the live violin player!
...
I wish I could video stream this for you guys. This is another edition of Total Bella Bullsh*t, that's basically live....Miz rips on Cena saying that he's (Cena) going to hollywood and is about to leave..but wait..

A man appears with a violin! OH MY GOD!
...
John Cena's music hits and out he comes, dancing like a maniac....whaa?

That's Miz dressed like Cena. I'm legit rolling around laughing. And Maryse is with him, dressed as Nikki Bella. How entertaining is Miz? The crowd is practically cheering the roof off.

No one dressed in John Cena attire has gotten such a pop in a few years now. :p
...
...
Mojo Rawley appears in a backstage interview segment and refers to his WrestleMania 33 victory in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal the greatest moment in his life.

Seems legit. He also says a lot of other typically-hyped-Mojo-Rawley things that don't really make sense, but you get the picture. Yea.
...
...
The match gets underway, and they lock up. Dillinger cartwheels out of it and gets more 'Ten' chants going by goading Hawkins. Not wise, as Hawkins hits him with a body shot and a back body drop.

But Dillinger is in no mood to let this stage slip, as he fights back with punches in bunches (ten, counts the crowd :p) and hits the Tye Breaker on him.

Cover! 1-2-3!

Tye Dillinger beats Curt Hawkins via pinfall
...
...
Lo and behold! It's Curt Hawkins. He's issuing an open challenge to anyone in the lockerroom, apparently! He's giving them a 10 count....CUE

It's Tye Dillinger! The Perfect Ten is on SmackDown! The crowd is going pretty crazy here with "ten" chants!
...
...
Naomi is clearly selling the knee injury, but that still doesn't prevent her from doing a celebratory jig with the Title after the match. For your viewing pleasure:
...
She whips Alexa Bliss onto the turnbuckle, and tries to go to the top rope, but is yanked to the mat again. They grapple again, but this time, Bliss inadvertently finds herself tied up like a pretzel in the same submission move that had her tapping at WM 33.

And you know what's different now? Nothing. Alexa Bliss taps out. Naomi defends her title!

Naomi def. Alexa Bliss via submission to retain the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship 
...
But give credit to Alexa's hustle, she's hardly backing off from the Champion and manages to hit a DDT on her. But it's Naomi's turn to fight back from adversity as she connects with the Rear View!

Cover! 1-2-Alexa Bliss kicks out in 2 and a half!
...
Naomi manages to create some separation between her and Alexa, by teeing off with a barrage of elbows to the face followed by a backdrop. Alexa, however, comes back for more and eats a kick to the face for her troubles  
...
We cut back from the break and it's all Alexa Bliss, who's taken control of the match by targeting Naomi's injured knee. She presses Naomi against the turnbuckle, in the corner, and wraps the compromised knee over the rope and torques it.

In good ol' JR's words, "the human anatomy isn't meant to be bent like that!"
...
...
...
Alexa Bliss goes straight after Naomi no sooner does the bell ring, but the Champion fights back with a running bulldog onto the turnbuckle. She follows that up with a flying kick-type of move on the outside, to send Alexa reeling.
...
Alexa Bliss comes out next, and she looks all business. The ring announcer makes the necessary introductions, and we're good to go.
...
A tag team match between the teams of Orton and Harper vs Bray and Rowan is announced by the commentary as we check back in after the break. 

Meanwhile, Naomi makes her neon-laden entrance for her rematch against Alexa Bliss for the WWE SmackDown's Women Championship. The crowd seems quite hot for her. Ahh, that didn't come out the way I wanted it to. But you get what I mean.

After all, it's her hometown of Orlando.
...
...
Miz and Maryse appear in a backstage segment, and they call out John Cena and Nikki Bella for a match. Miz also promises this would be the last time we see either John or Nikki on the show for a long, long time.
...
...
Orton says he doesn't know what a 'House of Horrors' match entails, but he accepts Bray's challenge and goads him into coming to the ring. Suddenly the lights go off, and Wyatt is standing behind Orton in the ring. 

He attacks the WWE Champion from behind but Orton gathers his wits and fights back. However, Erick Rowan interferes and goes after the Champion. As him and Bray gang up on Orton, Harper's music hits and he makes his way out to clear the ring.

Harper and Orton pose to end the segment, with Bray and Rowan backing up the ramp.
...
Randy Orton cuts a direct, short and sweet promo on how Bray Wyatt will remember him forever after he lost the WWE Title to him at Mania, and in riposte, Bray appears on the Titantron.

He meanders about, as usual, before revealing that he has a special plan for their rematch. He says before the night is over, one of them will be condemned to eternal damnation because they will fight in a 'House of Horrors match!
