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.
