The September 24 2019 edition of SmackDown Live, out of the Chase Center in San Francisco, California, 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 #1049 of SmackDown by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Erick Rowan Has Something to Say
Erick Rowan opened the show by coming to the ring, this time not to attack anyone, but to give a look inside of his mind. He said again that he was tired of being overlooked, even the fact that he is often referred to as a “redwood tree” is an example that he is viewed as less than human.
Rowan claimed that everyone was afraid of him, especially his old friend Dan, who then made his entrance, cutting Rowan off (which he was not happy about).
Daniel Bryan marched straight to the ring, looked Rowan in the eye, and said that if he was so angry, he should fight Bryan right then. Rowan agreed and the match began.
Daniel Bryan vs. Erick Rowan
Erick Rowan, more than happy to have the opportunity at a bit more revenge on the man who has treated him as less than for months, beat Daniel Bryan down relentlessly for most of the match. No matter what Bryan threw at Rowan, he was struck down almost immediately.
Bryan slowly fought his way back by focusing in on Rowan’s left leg, but it wasn’t long before Rowan had resumed his rag dolling of Daniel Bryan. Rowan gained a near fall with a powerslam, but Bryan miraculously powered out of the pin.
Erick Rowan continued to pick Bryan apart, but Bryan was relentless, firing off Yes Kicks before locking in the LeBell Lock. Rowan reached the ropes before being forced to tap out, and before Bryan could pick up where he left off, Luke Harper appeared at ringside.
Harper assisted Rowan in the destruction of Daniel Bryan, and at this point, it was simply too much for Bryan to overcome. After two Iron Claws, Erick Rowan won the match.
He and Luke Harper were preparing to further decimate Daniel Bryan when Roman Reigns’ music hit. Roman ran down, Superman Punching Luke Harper out of his way before saving Daniel Bryan from a third Iron Claw with a massive spear to Erick Rowan.
Roman tried to help Daniel up, but Daniel swatted him away, grabbing a microphone and asking the audience if they wanted to see him and Roman Reigns tear Harper and Rowan to shreds.
Winner: Erick Rowan
Kofi Kingston Reflects
After showing a video package highlighting the path of destruction Brock Lesnar has carved through WWE over the years, we saw Kofi Kingston seated across from Michael Cole for an exclusive interview.
Despite the overwhelming odds, Kofi Kingston was calm, cool, and collected. Not troubled at all by the task at hand, Kofi had nothing negative to say about Brock Lesnar, but only focused on himself and his own career, confident as ever that he will remain WWE Champion after his match against The Beast next week on SmackDown Live.
Chad Gable vs. Mike Kanellis
Chad Gable came to the ring, where he was quickly confronted by Mike Kanellis, who seemed to have decided that Chad Gable was the person to beat to prove to his wife that he’s not as big a loser as she thinks he is.
But he picked the wrong guy, because Chad Gable tapped him out with an ankle lock in record time.
After Mike Kanellis had left the ring, Elias appeared on the big screen, insulting Chad Gable’s height (how original of him, ya know?), meaning that a Chad Gable/Elias feud is on the horizon.
Winner: Chad Gable
Charlotte Flair and Carmella vs. Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection
Teaming up with Carmella, who saved her from a 2-on-1 beatdown at the hands of Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection, Charlotte Flair was out for revenge on Bayley and Sasha Banks.
But because of their tight friendship on top of their experience as a tag team, Bayley and Sasha are a well-oiled machine and cut the ring in half the moment the match began, double-teaming Carmella in their corner while Charlotte could do nothing but watch.
When Charlotte finally got the hot tag, she had much better luck than Carmella, as she has had more experience with Sasha and Bayley, both as teammates and opponents. After Charlotte had worn down Boss ‘n’ Hug, she tagged Carmella back in, who was soon defeated by Sasha’s Banks Statement.
R-Truth pulled his unconscious friend out of the ring and carried her away, just missing the 24/7 Title pursuers who ran down to take advantage of the incapacitated champ.
With Charlotte left alone in the ring, Bayley and Sasha Banks ganged up on The Queen, but before they could do too much damage, Becky Lynch ran down to make the save, chasing away Boss ‘n’ Hug. This seemed to be more for herself than for Charlotte, however, and she taunted them as they retreated up the ramp rather than checking on Charlotte.
Winner: The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection

Ali vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Determined to avoid a repeat of last week’s attack, Ali charged toward Shinsuke Nakamura as the bell rang. Ali held the upper hand from here, beating Shinsuke down both inside the ring and out, which did not sit well with Sami Zayn. Sami put a stop to Ali’s momentum by distracting him on the apron, allowing Nakamura to take control.
Nakamura continued to pick up steam until Ali threw him off his game with a superkick. This gained Ali a near fall, but the match continued. Ali hit a DDT, then went for his 540 splash, but Sami Zayn pulled Nakamura out of harm’s way before he could leave the top rope.
Ali chased Sami Zayn around the ring, but took his attention off of Shinsuke for a little too long, and Nakamura flattened him with a Kinshasa, winning the match.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
The New Day vs. The B-Team
In their last Tuesday night SmackDown Live match, Big E and Xavier Woods took on The B-Team, who got more offense than we’ve seen in quite some time. Though they had a promising start, they got a little too confident with their B Train, and didn’t notice that Big E had joined in.
Seconds later, The New Day were hitting their Midnight Hour and taking the win.
Winner: The New Day
The Kabuki Warriors vs. Fire and Desire
Anxious to right the ship that is their tag team record, Asuka and Kairi Sane came into this match with an extra level of motivation. Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, who have found much more success as a duo, held off The Warriors for as long as they could, but Asuka and Kairi were unrelenting in their efforts and with an Insane Elbow, Kairi Sane took the win for her team.
Winner: The Kabuki Warriors
Shane O’Mac Confronts KO
Flanked by his team of lawyers to better intimidate Kevin Owens, Shane McMahon asked KO to join him in the ring to talk things out. This quickly became more of a “I will own your house” type of speech from Shane, but Kevin wasn’t having it.
He said that he wanted to settle things the old fashioned way. With one more match. But it couldn’t be just any match, he wanted a ladder match.
Sasha Banks Ambushes The Man
Sasha Banks couldn’t just sit back and allow Becky Lynch’s disruption of her takedown of Charlotte Flair go unpunished, so as Becky was being interviewed backstage, Sasha attacked her from behind.
The Man fought back but was ultimately left lying in a heap as officials struggled to pull The Boss away from her.
