The 09/25/18 edition of WWE SmackDown Live, out of the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, just wrapped up.ย Weโ€™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 #997 of WWE SmackDown by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

Truth TV (Is Awesome)


The show kicked off with the first ever episode of Truth TV. Similar to the other WWE ‘talk shows’, R-Truth and Carmella spoke for a moment, then welcomed their guest, Daniel Bryan, to the ring.

Bryan said he was honored to be the first ever guest on Truth TV and encouraged Truth to ask any question he’d like. Shortly after the inevitable discussion about The Miz began, they had to stop for a 7-second dance break.

Back to business, Bryan talked about beating The Miz at Super Show-Down and eventually becoming WWE Champion, which of course, The Miz had to interrupt. Instead of going after Bryan, however, he demanded to know why Truth was stealing his gimmick. Truth said that he took the talk show as compensation for beating Miz on SmackDown Live two weeks ago.

Miz didn’t have much of an argument for Truth, so he turned his attention toward Bryan. He said he was willing to do anything to win the WWE Championship, including cheating. Because Bryan would never stoop so low, he would never be champion.

R-Truth had heard enough of Miz’s mouth and cut him off with another dance break. Miz tried to report the injustice to Paige, but she told him that Truth won the talk show fair and square, and the only way he could get it back was to beat Truth for it.


R-Truth vs. The Miz

Winner Keeps Their Talk Show


Daniel Bryan sat at the announce table and watched as R-Truth and The Miz fought for the right to entertain the masses with their very own talk show.

Truth has been a highly entertaining addition to the blue brand lately, and this match was a continuation of that trend. He did his best against The Miz, even throwing in some dance moves and a full split to please the crowd, but The Miz won back Miz TV with a Skull Crushing Finale followed by a running knee.

Winner: The Miz


Photoshoot Gone Wrong


Charlotte Flair was shown backstage mid-photoshoot when Becky Lynch ambushed her. Lynch threw Flair into a set of lockers and ordered the photographer to take a picture of her proudly standing over Charlotte’s limp body.


Sheamus vs. Big E


The New Day started things off with their usual banter, but after they insulted Cesaro’s nipples, Sheamus was ready to fight. Sheamus avenged his partner with a Brogue Kick following a fairly short, but action-packed match.

Winner: Sheamus


The Demise of Rusev Day


Accompanied by his wife, Lana, Rusev came to the ring to confront Aiden English. He said he was heartbroken over his friend’s betrayal, especially considering it happened on Rusev Day.

English walked onto the stage and reminded Rusev that without him, there would be no Rusev Day. Furthermore, everything would be fine if it weren’t for Lana. She ruined Rusev Day, not Aiden. Lana defended herself by telling everyone that she had been by Rusev’s side since the beginning, helping him get where he is today.

Instead of continuing the argument, Aiden English left everyone in a cliffhanger by mentioning a mysterious event in Milwaukee that Lana had allegedly hidden from her husband. Lana denied the incident, but Rusev didn’t seem too convinced.


Asuka and Naomi vs. Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose


While The Iconic Duo sat at the announce desk, Asuka and Naomi got revenge on Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose for insulting them backstage earlier in the evening.

To the disappointment of Billie Kay and Peyton Royce, it wasn’t long at all before Asuka pinned Sonya for the victory following synchronized kicks from Naomi and Asuka. They make a great team, now all we need is some glowing entrance gear for The Empress.

Winner: Asuka and Naomi


Tye Dillinger vs. Shinsuke Nakamura


It appeared as though Nakamura underestimated his opponent, as Tye Dillinger caught him off guard the moment the match began, then continued to evade his attacks as the action went on.

Dillinger might have even been close to defeating Nakamura, but Randy Orton came out of nowhere and caused a disqualification by viciously attacking Tye. Now that he’s finished with Jeff Hardy, The Viper may have found his new prey.

Winner: Tye Dillinger (via disqualification)


Becky Lynch vs. Lana


Becky Lynch challenged Lana to a match simply to prove that she could beat her down. Victory didn’t come quite as easily as Lynch had probably anticipated, but she accomplished her goal in the end when The Ravishing Russian tapped out to the Dis-Arm-Her.

Winner: Becky Lynch


AJ Styles / Samoa Joe Contract Signing


Before either man stepped into the ring, Paige made a disclaimer. She said she took every precaution in an attempt to prevent any violent outbreaks, but ultimately, there wasnโ€™t much she could do.

AJ Styles made his entrance, but when Samoa Joeโ€™s turn came, he was nowhere to be found. Styles thought Joe might attack him from behind, but instead, Joe came on the big screen to reveal that he was at Stylesโ€™ house.

Unsurprisingly, this deeply upset AJ, who pleaded with Joe to leave his family alone. Joe refused and to close out the show, rang Styles’ doorbell and left him with two words: “daddy’s home.”
