The 10/23/18 edition of WWE SmackDown Live, out of the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, just wrapped up. We’ve got the WWE SmackDown Live results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #1001 of WWE SmackDown Live by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

Kofi Kingston vs. The Big Show


The New Day opened the show to discuss the results of their match against The Bar last week at SmackDown 1000. Needless to say, they were less than pleased about losing the titles to Sheamus and Cesaro, and even less happy that Big Show had joined forces with the enemy.

Each team was allowed to elect one member to compete in the match and, unluckily for Kofi Kingston, The Bar selected Big Show. Kingston was chokeslammed so many times that the other members of The New Day jumped in to save him, resulting in a disqualification and a brawl between the teams. After beating down The New Day, The Bar (should we call them The Big Bar now?) walked away, heads held high.

Winner: The Big Show (via disqualification)


The Usos vs. AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan


Despite being excellent performers individually, AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan certainly had their work cut out for them against the well-oiled machine that is Jimmy and Jey Uso. They were able to stay on the same page for a solid portion of the action, even starting off with the upper hand, but The Usos’ flawless teamwork earned them the victory in the end.

Backstage, Styles and Bryan got into an argument over the match and whether Styles kicking Bryan in the face was accidental or not.

Winner: The Usos


The Queen Inspires the Yellow Brand


Charlotte Flair was shown in the performance center giving an inspirational speech to the women of NXT and the Mae Young Classic. But, of course, Becky Lynch had to intervene, giving her own speech before attacking Charlotte, ruining her moment. Charlotte then told us that Becky had finally gone too far; her actions were unforgivable and, at Evolution, she would come to regret them.


Rusev vs. Aiden English


As usual, Aiden English grabbed a mic and sang his way to the ring. He went slightly too far this time, however, as he brought Lana into the tune, enraging Rusev to the point of absolutely crushing him. English might think twice before bringing up the Ravishing Russian again.

Winner: Rusev


MizTV Welcomes Rey Mysterio


The Miz invited his guest for the evening, Rey Mysterio, down for his interview. Although it was less of a conversation and more Miz talking at Rey while complimenting himself.

Mysterio got his comeback when he said that he was actually disappointed – he thought he had been booked for an episode of TruthTV. That being said, he wasn’t really there to talk, he was there to fight. And he wanted Miz.


Rey Mysterio vs. The Miz


This match was a result of The Miz sneak-attacking Mysterio at the tail end of MizTV. He claimed to be the best in the world while interviewing Rey, but couldn’t quite live up to the self-created hype. After a fun match, Mysterio granted the entire audience’s wishes by hitting a 619, defeating the Miz.

Winner: Rey Mysterio


Asuka and Naomi vs. Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville


Just as the ladies were about to get started with the match, the rest of the women of SmackDown involved in the upcoming battle royal at Evolution made their way to the ring. A brawl broke out between all of them, ending with Asuka standing tall while everyone else laid on the ground at ringside.

Winner: N/A


Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton


Shane McMahon danced to the ring before the match to hype the world cup tournament as well as the main event for the evening between Hardy and Orton.

We thought we had seen the last of the Viper’s destruction of Jeff Hardy, but he came back for a little more ear stretching. Orton dominated much of the match, and although Hardy managed to shift the momentum momentarily, a missed Swanton to the floor ultimately cost him the match when Orton came back with an RKO and took the victory.

Winner: Randy Orton
