Smackdown Spoilers for 12/25/18

Recommended Posts

Really detailed set of Spoilers:

* Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and The New Day defeated SAnitY and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bar in an eight-man match. The Usos were on commentary. The New Day had on Christmas costumes with white beards and Santa Claus hats. Gallows and Anderson got the pin for their team. After the match, The New Day threw pancakes to the crowd while Xavier Woods played Francesca

* R-Truth and Carmella come out dressed as Mr. & Mrs. Claus. They did a dance break to Christmas songs and Truth messed up the names of Santa’s reindeer. WWE Champion Daniel Bryan interrupted and said they aren’t real. AJ Styles and Santa Claus also aren’t real. Bryan cut a promo on materialism and the environment. Bryan said Santa will not exist as the glaciers continue to melt. Truth thinks it’s a joke. Bryan says Truth’s career has been a joke. Truth mentions his #30 spot in the Royal Rumble and possibly challenging Bryan at WrestleMania 35, if Bryan can keep the title that long. Bryan says Truth can’t even count to 30. Truth counts – 1,2,3,7. They do another 8 second dance break but Bryan interrupts by dropping Truth mid-dance. Bryan applies The LeBell Lock to Truth while Carmella looks on. Bryan breaks the hold, stomps on Truth and goes for his leg. Bryan leaves with the WWE Title held high


* Mustafa Ali defeated Andrade “Cien” Almas. Good match, Ali won with the 054

* The Miz comes out with a Christmas-themed edition of MizTV. Miz outs over the 2018 that SmackDown had and then introduced Shane McMahon, calling him his bestie. Shane talks about how the McMahon Family will listen to the fans from h ere on out, and that new Superstars are on their way to the main roster. Miz asks why can’t he and Shane be tag team partners now that SmackDown has 4 members of the family running the show. Miz also put himself over. Miz ran down his week and comments on how that still wasn’t enough to impress Vince McMahon, saying nothing is enough for Vince but Vince was impressed by Shane at the World Cup tournament. Miz says tagging with Shane is something to be proud of. Miz puts Shane on the spot, telling him to listen to what the fans want like he claimed. Fans respond with a mixed reaction but Shane agrees to tag with Miz. They stand together and raise the World Cup trophy at once. Miz leads a “yes!” chant to end the segment. They then shook hands and played to the crowd off-camera

* Jeff Hardy defeated Samoa Joe by count out. Hardy came out wearing Christmas face paint. This was a fairly quick back & forth match with no one taking the lead for too long until Hardy rallied the crowd. Joe almost took his head off with a clothesline before going to work on him in the corner. More back and forth. The crowd rallied for Hardy again after Joe kept him in an abdominal stretch. Jeff came back and hit some of his signature moves, then lead a “delete!” chant. Joe avoided the Whisper In the Wind and rolled to the floor. Hardy jumped from the apron and kicked Joe on the floor, beating him up for the count out. After the match, Jeff took Joe to the announce table and prepared for a Twist of Fate. Joe got free and dropped Hardy into the Coquina Clutch. Officials pulled them apart but Hardy went down. Joe looked to attack Hardy some more but the officials backed him off. Joe smirked as he left to the back

* Rusev defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to become the new WWE United States Champion. The match starts off fast and sees Nakamura get offense on the outside. Rusev with massive suplexes when they come back in the ring. Lots of back and forth action mid-match, they also go back to the floor. Nakamura puts on a kicking clinic until Rusev catches him with a series of clotheslines. They fight back out of the ring and Nakamura hits a diving knee from the apron. Nakamura misses a Kinshasa and eats a superkick. Rusev can’t get The Accolade in but Nakamura puts him in a triangle choke. Rusev turns that into a powerbomb. They trade pin attempts, roll-ups and more counters. They trade Kinshasa and superkick attempts again. Nakamura can’t knock Rusev down and Rusev responds with a big clothesline. Rusev stomps on Nakamura and superkicks him when he gets back up. Rusev then covers for the pin and the title. Lana comes in to celebrate after the match

* That was the end of the show, it seemed short. No AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio or Randy Orton or women's match either, among others

No Randy Orton? Merry Christmas!

How about trading Randy to Raw for Balor? We're long overdue for Balor, AJ, and the Good Brothers to be on the same show.

Rusev getting the belt again is great. I still don't get why they split him and English though.

So Santa doesn't exist but if he DID exist he will end up dead because the glaciers would melt?  :blink:    Sounds like houses in the North Pole have terrible foundations.  Sounds more like a union problem to me 😏

Christmas Day is now Russev Day and I'm here for it. Also looking forward to the Almas/Ali match.

This. Never needed a break up and missed out on the tag team title reign they deserved.

Rusev holding a belt again is nice.

Lookign forward to Almas/Ali though I wish Almas would actually win some important matches.

This is when Rusev should have gotten the US title back.

...and Phillips namedropping Lin-Manuel Miranda to boot

Just retcon the whole Rusev-Aiden breakup. Have Aiden come out and admit Nakamura was behind the whole breakup. Nak promised Aiden big money and loose women, but never delivered on his promises. Now, Aiden has nothing left. He hides in the bowels of the arenas dressed as a clown singing Pagliacci. More heat for Nakamura being behind the Rusev Day split. Maybe have Rusev put Aiden through a series of tests to see if he can really be trusted.

Or have Aiden team with Nakamura as the Artistes. Nak needs the help more than Rusev.

Probably will.

NJPW wants to poach another WWE guy like Jericho again.

Honestly I would fucking love if Omega vs Nakamura for the IWGP Championship headlined the ROH/New Japan MSG show.

Oh wow,  I caught the Rusev title win over Nak.  Good match too.   But then that backstage segment with AJ Styles and Vince. That was great.  That's the best Vince has been in a while too.

Liked the Vince AJ styles segment.

 

I think smackdown should darken the crowd during matches.

I thought end segment was ridiculous and unnecessary. Will AJ hitting Vince end up going nowhere like Vince and KO?

The show should have ended with Rusev's celebration. 

I really enjoyed Almas/Ali. I hope more of the 205 Live roster get pushed beyond the show. Hopefully, Almas can start getting some wins.

I'm glad Gallows and Anderson picked up the win in the 8 man. I would have liked the match to go a little longer. I'm also glad Sanity weren't the ones taking the loss.

How did that go nowhere? It added a ton of heat to his KOTR match against Shane McMahon — in other words, a really big match. And Sami turned in that match, which led to a bunch of fun stuff until they both got hurt.

Dug the opening segment with Truth and Bryan.

Almas/Ali was fun and Rusev/Nakamura was pretty damn good.

I love that Bryan isn't done with Ali.

The ending with Vince bringing out AJ's dark side was a bit odd but interesting.

It led to them floundering on Raw in terrible programs with Bobby Lashley, until they got hurt. Like I said, it went nowhere. Being off tv has been the best thing for them.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention how good Samoa Joe is. No matter what the angle is, Joe shines. I would love a Joe/Bryan feud with Joe still remaining the same badass he is, but just happens to be annoyed by Bryan's preaching on top of still wanting the title.
