WWE SmackDown Results, January 29th 2019, Latest SmackDown Live winners and video highlights
SmackDown kicked off with a recap of Becky Lynch's Rumble win and what happened on RAW. Becky said that it had been a crazy couple of days. She added that in 3 seconds on RAW, she realized the difference between her and "Ronnie" Ronda Rousey.
She admitted the night didn't start out well for her, but unlike Ronda Rousey, she didn't crumble in defeat. The crowd interjected with loud "Becky" and "You deserve it chants". She said that what she sensed in Ronda's eyes that she doesn't have anymore was fear. She vowed to make her feel it by WrestleMania when Charlotte interfered.
Charlotte congratulated Becky sarcastically for making it out of the kickoff show. Charlotte says that while she wasn't even in the Rumble, she willed her way into it. Charlotte said that she became The Man and the Main Event because of Charlotte.
Charlotte seemed happy but took credit for her success. Becky smacked her down to the floor and the crowd went nuts. Becky walked away triumphantly, but Charlotte attacked her from behind. A brawl began and the officials came out to stop them while the crowd was chanting "This is awesome".
The Fabulous Truth was out next. R-Truth said he got jacked by Nia Jax. He said that had Nia not attacked him, he would have won. Truth mentioned that the McMahons knew about it and offered him a US Title match to compensate.
R-Truth vs Shinsuke Nakamura - United States Championship
Nakamura started off on the aggressive and tried to finish it early. R-Truth caught him early on but Nakamura regained control. He had his knees to the midsection of R-Truth and was in complete control. Nakamura tried to go for the pin but it wasn't enough. Truth rolled him up and despite Nakamura seemingly kicking out, the referee counted to 3 and we had our new US Champion.
Result: R-Truth def. Shinsuke Nakamura to become the NEW United States Champion
