The 09/11/18 edition of WWE SmackDown Live, out of The Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana, 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 #995 of WWE SmackDown Live by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

Jeff Hardy vs. Shinsuke Nakamura


Jeff Hardy kicked things off with a promo about demons. He assured the audience that Randy Orton isn’t the first he’s ever faced; he’s overcome every demon in his life, Orton is simply the next to be vanquished. He plans to unleash all of his pain and anger onto Orton inside Hell in a Cell on Sunday.

Neither man a stranger to mind games, Hardy and Nakamura started the match by trying to get in the other’s head. However, it wasn’t long before both men were beating each other senseless. Nakamura was vicious, but Hardy managed to endure, nearly sealing the victory with a Swanton Bomb, but Randy Orton came out of nowhere and threw him to the ground.

Nakamura may not have pulled any punches, but Orton was even more ruthless – launching Hardy’s head into the steel steps before smashing a chair into his torso. Jeff Hardy was not going to take any more abuse from Orton and fought back, leaving Randy Orton lying on the ground for the second time.

Winner: Jeff Hardy (via disqualification)


Miz and Maryse Interview


In an interview with Kayla Braxton, Miz and Maryse lit into Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella, saying they were better than the yes couple in every way and more than ready to beat them down in their mixed tag match at Hell in a Cell. But first, Maryse will take Brie down in the main event.


AJ Styles Promo


Sitting in an empty arena, AJ Styles talked about his match with Samoa Joe at Hell in a Cell. He said he can’t deny Joe knows him well, he knows exactly which buttons to push to enrage Styles, but Styles knows the same about him. And on Sunday, he’s going to show Samoa Joe exactly why SmackDown Live is the house that AJ Styles built.


Charlotte Flair vs. Sonya Deville


Backstage, Charlotte Flair explained why she requested this match so close to her title defense on Sunday. She said that, unlike Becky Lynch, she is a fighter who thrives on competition, and is in no way out to hold anybody back.

Once the action started, Sonya Deville was eager to prove herself against the champion and gave Charlotte her best shot. Deville was solid competition for Flair, forcing the queen to stay on her toes until the very end. Charlotte came out the other side looking a little worse for wear but with a victory under her belt thanks to her Figure Eight.

On her way up the ramp, she stopped to take a picture with some young fans when Becky Lynch appeared in the crowd, beating Flair down and declaring she would emerge the new champion on Sunday.

Winner: Charlotte Flair


Night Night AJ


Samoa Joe debuted his new book, “Night Night AJ”, detailing his feud with AJ Styles in full on Dr. Seuss style verse. It ended with his prediction for Hell in a Cell – Joe will be the new champion, and Styles’ family will love him for it.


The Bar vs. Rusev Day


The New Day sat at their bright orange announce table to get an up-close look at their potential competition. Before the match, newscaster Kramer Kingsman (Kofi Kingston) was shown backstage, excitedly covering the upcoming tag match with The Bar discussing strategy in the background.

With a title opportunity on the line, these teams held nothing back. Neither The Bar nor Rusev Day had a clear advantage, the match easily could have gone either way. After a few near falls from either team, Rusev captured the win for he and English. The New Day appeared unphased, even offering Rusev and Aiden English some pancake batter Big E had prepared while announcing.

Winner: Rusev Day


Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. R-Truth


Future mixed tag match partners, R-Truth and Carmella, decided to get a little practice as a team first. In the middle of Almas and Zelina’s Tranquilo pose, Carmella snatched Zelina’s hair, dragging her to the floor. This nearly cost Andrade the match, but he reversed Truth’s attack and won via roll-up (and a handful of Truth’s shorts).

Winner: Andrade “Cien” Almas


Brie Bella vs. Maryse


Ahead of their mixed tag match on Sunday, the ladies of the power couples went one-on-one. After being tossed around a bit by Brie, Maryse jumped out of the ring and tried to run from the match, but Brie called her out. This made The Miz very angry, and he grabbed a mic and yelled that she was lucky to even have the chance to be in the same ring as Maryse, she had nothing to prove and therefore was ending the match early.

Brie Bella chased Miz and Maryse down, grabbed Maryse, and forced her back into the ring. It looked as though Brie was about to make Maryse tap with a Yes Lock, but Miz grabbed Brie’s foot and yanked her from the ring, causing a disqualification. This led to chaos, Miz and Bryan attacking each other while Maryse and Brie did the same. In the end, Brie and Bryan stood tall in the ring as Miz and Maryse retreated back up the ramp.

Winner: Brie Bella (via disqualification)
