08:39 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Thanks for following our coverage of SmackDown Live. We hope you enjoyed what was quite a newsworthy show, to say the least! 

08:37 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon are backstage. Shane says that he will be the special guest referee for Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura at Clash of Champions. He announces that Owens and Zayn will be fired from all of WWE if they lose!

Daniel Bryan looks torn following this announcement. He continues to tease a heel turn. Why would they turn him when he's so much more popular than Shane McMahon?

08:33 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Shinsuke Nakamura is out to event the odds! Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens eat a Kinshasha and RKO each! We have a new tag-team on our hands, folks.

08:32 (IST)6 DEC 2017

After the match, Owens and Zayn gang up on Orton, punishing the Viper. 

08:31 (IST)6 DEC 2017

As Orton hits a superplex, Owens frees himself with the bolt cutters. Orton overcomes the distraction and hits a rope-hung DDT on Zayn. He then hits another rope-hung DDT on an interfering Kevin Owens before blocking an attempted Helluva Kick and rolling up Zayn for the win.

08:27 (IST)6 DEC 2017

When we return from commercial, Zayn has Orton in a chinlock. However, the Viper connects with a huge clothesline. An attempted rope-hung DDT is thwarted by Zayn who then attempts to free Owens with a bolt cutter. Orton thwarts Zayn and runs Owens into the ring post, but the former El Generico catches the Missouri native from behind. 

08:22 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Owens distracts Orton, allowing Zayn to intercept the Viper with a dropkick outside the ring. After working on the shoulder, Zayn flings Orton outside the ring as we cut to what should be the last commercial on the show. 

08:20 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton
A frustrated Orton immediately beats the bejesus out of Zayn, even planting the Canadian on the barricade. Not content with punches and kicks, Orton throws Zayn into the barricade repeatedly. He no-seels a few strikes before slamming Zayn on the announce table. 

08:14 (IST)6 DEC 2017

The main event is up next. Will Randy Orton defeat Sami Zayn? Or will the Underdog from the Underground tame The Viper and allow justice to prevail? Seriously, no one cares about Randy Orton in 2017. 

08:11 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Before the match, Kevin Owens refuses to be handcuffed to the ring rope. He ultimately relents after Daniel Bryan threatens him with a suspension. 

08:09 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Daniel Bryan has denied Kevin Owens' appeal. The Prizefighter will be handcuffed to the rope. 

08:05 (IST)6 DEC 2017

08:05 (IST)6 DEC 2017

After the match, Natalya takes to the mic and taunts Charlotte. The Riott Squad then make their way to the ring, forcing the audience to vomit with some of the most cringe-worthy dialogue you'll ever hear. Logan, the one with overly-exaggerated Sothern accent, and Tamina get into a brawl. They have to be separated as Charlotte flees, presumably to escape another beating. 

08:02 (IST)6 DEC 2017

When we return from commercial, Tamina has a chinlock. She throws Charlotte into the corner and follows with a lariat for two. Charlotte comes back with a neckbreaker and a few chops. Roll-up by the Queen is only good for two, but she eats a kick to the knee soon afterwards. Tamina attempts a Samoan drop, but Charlotte reverses and hits a big boot. Figure 8 is locked in, and Tamina taps immediately.
Charlotte Flair def. Tamina

07:56 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Charlotte Flair vs. Tamina
Natalya, Carmella and Lana are at ringside. Charlotte's on top to begin the match. She works on Tamina with a series of holds until she is unceremoniously dumped on the turnbuckle. 

07:51 (IST)6 DEC 2017

We then get a preview of AJ Styles' WWE Championship match with Jinder Mahal at Clash of Champions. Neither man has been on the show as of yet. 

07:45 (IST)6 DEC 2017

07:45 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Natalya is backstage with Lana, Tamina, Carmella and The Riott Squad. She tries to curry favour with them ahead of her lumberjack match with Charlotte Flair at Clash of Champions. 

07:44 (IST)6 DEC 2017

07:44 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Roode misses with a clothesline from the top rope, prompting a double clothesline spot. As the two competitors sell, Ziggler sneaks in and hits both of them with a Zig-Zag. He is no longer the poor man's Shawn Michaels; he is now the destitute man's Shawn Michaels. 

Also, if you wagered against me, it's time to pay up!

07:40 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode
Baron Corbin pokes Roode in the chest and breaks away from a headlock to connect with a shoulder barge. Roode quickly takes the advantage and knocks Corbin off the apron. However, the Lone Wolf hits a sneak attack and comes back inside the ring, grounding Roode with a series of holds. He is also talking trash to the crowd. Charisma vacuum is in the house! :(  

07:35 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Rodde is up next. How much do you want to bet that we're in for another screwy finish? Dolph Ziggler is even at ringside for commentary. My chances just got much better!

07:32 (IST)6 DEC 2017

07:31 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are backstage. They're still displeased about Owens being handcuffed to the ring rope like a mistreated animal. Apparently, they've appealed to Daniel Bryan, who is considering a change of stipulation. 

07:29 (IST)6 DEC 2017

07:27 (IST)6 DEC 2017

The Bludgeon Brothers (Luke Harper and Erick Rowan) vs. Jabroni X and Jabroni Y
The Bludgeon Brothers are up against a local tag team that we shall call Jabroni X and Jabroni Y. Armageddon ensues as Harper and Rowan kill their opponents. They even do the thing where Harper slaps Rowan.
The Bludgeon Brothers def. Jabroni X and Jabroni Y

07:22 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode have a confrontation backstage. For some reason, Ziggler is dressed like post-retirement Shawn Michaels — who is constantly mocked for his terrible fashion sense. This guy never ceases to astound. 

07:19 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Daniel Bryan was backstage with Carmella, Lana and Tamina who are squabbling over a title shot at Clash of Champions. The Riott Squad then walk in and make their own cases for a title shot. Riott does the CM Punk shtick, claiming that corporate isn't comfortable with her edgy persona. 

Daniel Bryan, seemingly as disgusted with this segment as the viewers, claims that Charlotte vs. Natalya at Clash of Champions is now a lumberjack match. 

07:10 (IST)6 DEC 2017

We then get a backstage interview with the now-heel Mojo Rawley. He says the reason he turned heel was that Zack Ryder was nothing but dead weight. Rawley then claims that he is too talented to be a tag team wrestler. 

07:09 (IST)6 DEC 2017

The heels managed to take Big E down outside the ring. Kingston lands a huge suicide dive on Rusev and throws the Bulgarian inside the ring. However, Rusev trips during an attempted springboard and pins him with a kick to the back of the head.

Rusev & Aiden English def. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E)

07:07 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Kingston can't reach Big E at first, but he hits a double stomp and creates some separation. English and Big E get tagged in, and the strongman tortures English, capping off his assault with a huge splash. Looks for the Big Ending, but English rakes the eye and tags Rusev, who eats an uranage slam for two. 

07:04 (IST)6 DEC 2017

When we return from commercial, English has Kingston in a chinlock. The Boston native fights back with a chinbreaker and looks for the tag, but English and Rusev work begin to double team him. Rusev then grabs a bearhug which is followed by a spinning kick for two. 

07:00 (IST)6 DEC 2017

06:58 (IST)6 DEC 2017

The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E) vs. Aiden English & Rusev
Big E starts proceedings with English, but he quickly grounds his foe and tags Kofi, who builds some momentum before Rusev saves his partner by pulling him out of the ring. 

06:56 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Rusev and Aiden English are in the ring, and the former Vaudevillain performs a song titled "12 days of Rusev." However, he is interrupted by The New Day before he can finish.  

06:54 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are backstage, and they're not happy with Shane McMahon's announcement!

06:49 (IST)6 DEC 2017

06:48 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Shane then announces a match between Sami Zayn and Randy Orton for later in the night. Oh, and Kevin Owens will be handcuffed to the ring rope!

06:47 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Shane McMahon then comes out and clarifies that he doesn't have a vendetta against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. He then announces that Owens and Zayn will face Randy Orton and a partner of his choosing at Clash of Champions 2017. 

06:46 (IST)6 DEC 2017

While the Canadians gloat, Randy Orton sneaks up on Kevin Owens inside the ring and nails him with an RKO!

06:44 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Owens and Zayn call Randy Orton a weapon of destruction that serves the McMahons and receives favours that other Superstars don't. Owens says that he put such a bad beating on Orton that the Viper is no longer an option for Shane McMahon. Zayn then explains his actions from last week and claims that he technically was never at ringside, taking a sly dig at the commentary team in the process. 

06:40 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Kevin Owens says that he is a victim of the McMahon family's vendetta, and he says that wrestling's first family will stop at nothing to get their pound of flesh. The duo rattle of a list of legendary names that feuded with the McMahons in the past and claim they're better than all of them. 

06:38 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Point to note: Sami Zayn was barred from ringside during Kevin Owens' match with Randy Orton last night. 

06:36 (IST)6 DEC 2017

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are out to start the show. 

06:34 (IST)6 DEC 2017

a) Charlotte Flair vs. Tamina
