10 “Say What?” Moments from WWE SmackDown Live - November 15th 2016
The much anticipated ‘SmackDown 900’ episode took place this week, and there was certainly plenty to look forward too. Sami Zayn’s opponent for Survivor Series would be decided in an Intercontinental Championship match between Dolph Ziggler and The Miz, plus long-term rivals Carmella and Nikki Bella would square off in singles action.
Not to mention a special ‘Cutting Edge’ with returning Hall of Famer, Edge, and perhaps most intriguingly, a rare appearance from The Undertaker. Just what would the ‘Deadman’ have in store for the WWE Universe?
WWE did a great job of making this show feel like a must-see event, but did it live up to the hype? Let’s take a look…
#1 Miz regains the Intercontinental Championship
The milestone show of SmackDown Live kicked off with the Intercontinental Title match and, in what must go down as a shock result, The Miz would win and regain the championship.
It was another good match, between these rivals with plenty of counters, which makes sense considering how many times the two men have faced off in recent months, and the usual shenanigans from the Spirit Squad and Maryse at ringside. It would be Maryse’s involvement that would prove decisive this time as she helped her husband pick up the win.
This result means that it will be Miz, who faces Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Title at Survivor Series. Will Dolph get involved this Sunday and cost not just Miz, but SmackDown Live as a whole, the Championship?
