WWE SmackDown results, live blog (Mar. 10, 2016): Chris Jericho, Miz TV with Owens & Zayn

WWE SmackDown comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Mar. 10, 2016) from Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a taped show on the USA Network featuring all the latest build to the WrestleMania 32 pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza scheduled for next month in Arlington, Texas.

Because SmackDown is a taped show, you can simply go read the spoilers to know everything that happens (find them by clicking here). We will provide results below.

You can use this space to discuss all the events as they occur, however, and it's probably going to enhance your viewing experience. In fact, I know it is because we're a lot of fun around here.

Enjoy the show!



Hey, all. Kyle here. SmackDown has some good fall out planned from Raw, including a segment with the Miz, Owens, and Zayn. Plus it's not three hours long. So let's do it.


Then. Now. Forever.

The Usos, Dolph Ziggler, and Dean Ambrose vs. the Wyatt Family announced for tonight.


Miz is already in the ring with the MizTV set up ready to go. He briefly talks up the drama surrounding Kevin Owen and Sami Zayn's history and they replay Sami's return on Raw. Then he introduces Sami Zayn.

Sami comes down and gets a moderate Ole chant from the crowd. Miz tells him that the WWE Universe wants to know who Sami Zayn is. When Zayn starts to speak, Miz cuts him off and asks him to speed it up to the Owens part. Sami talks about how they made it so far because they depended on each other when they started 13 years ago. He still doesn't understand why Owens did what he did, discussing their history together in NXT when KO powerbombed him on the ring apron right after Sami won the NXT title.

The Miz then introduces Kevin Owens, who takes his time coming out. Owens starts slowly walking to the ring as he talks (he never gets into the ring). He says Sami knows why he did what he did - because it was best for Kevin's career. It wasn't personal. And the evidence is there - Sami was in WWE 2 years prior to KO but KO debuted on Raw a year prior to Sami. However, what Sami did to KO at the Rumble and on Raw last Monday was personal. Owens says he's the victim.

Sami says Owens isn't a victim yet because he's taking Kevin's Intercontinental title at WrestleMania. KO says this isn't NXT but the Kevin Owens show. Sami tells him to get into the ring and prove it. KO is insulted that he thinks Sami can share a ring with him and goes to leave.

Neville comes out before Owens can leave. The Brit says that he and the IC champ have unfinished business as well and he wants the IC title.

The Miz rants about how this is his show and why do they think they all deserve an IC title shot. If anyone does, it's the Miz, who even main evented WrestleMania. Sami informs him that his years of main eventing WrestleMania are far, far, far behind him. Sami turns to address Owens and the Miz attacks him from behind! Sami is able to neutralize him and Miz escapes to the outside.


The Miz/Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn/Neville

The good guys have control on the Miz early with multiple tags. Owens is tagged in an he and Neville have a really fun sequence. Sami tags in and KO wants nothing to do with him, running and tagging the Miz.

Neville does a sweet cork screw moonsault off of the back of Sami Zayn! However, the heels soon get control as SmackDown goes to commercial.

SmackDown returns with KO and Miz having clear control of Neville. Zayn is finally able to get the tag and he comes out a house of fire against Miz. Miz desperately needs a tag laying in his own corner, but KO is conflicted. Instead of tagging in, he opts to leave. What a coward!

As Sami watches him leave, Miz goes for a roll up but Zayn kicks out. Miz realizes KO is leaving him, letting Sami get the advantage again and get the pin after hitting the Helluva Kick.

Sami Zayn and Neville defeat Kevin Owens and the Miz.

Zayn and Owens were never in the ring at the same time


Goldust is in a bathroom stall and needs toilet paper. R-Truth holds out his hand and says he's got a "helping hand." Turns out Truth does have toilet paper as well and Goldie takes but still won't team with Truth.

They play the Raw recap concerning Dean Ambrose and Triple H.


Brie Bella vs. Summer Rae

Raw rematch!

Lana is sitting on the commentary table wearing a headset. She is dressed in more leather, but definitely still something out of her Ziggler collection. She says little of note on commentary

Summer Rae has early control over Brie. Brie finally gets control with a missile drop kick from the top and then hits the DB kicks. She misses the Brie Mode Knee but is able to eventually lock in the Yes Lock for a submission win. It's another really quick match.

Brie Bella defeats Summer Rae via submission

After the match, while Brie is being distracted by Lana, Summer goes for a cheap shot. She fails and gets a Brie Mode knee because of it. However, that allows Lana to slide into the ring, hit the X Factor like from Raw, and then she mocks the Yes Chants.


They replay the Shane McMahon crazy spot highlight package from Raw.


Chris Jericho walks out wearing a sport jacket and scarf but no shirt underneath. He brings out a Y2AJ shirt with him. There's a trash can in the ring that he leans the shirt against.

He harps on the fact that crowd opted to chant for AJ Styles over him, making him feel like a piece of trash. He was ignored and disrespected, questioning of the people forgot he's the Best in the World at what he does. He talks about how he does whatever is needed of him, world title, opening matches, good ideas (Money in the Bank), or durability (he's never been hurt). Well if you're chanting for AJ Styles, you can go to hell.

Jericho says he's seen it a ton: The new guy who comes in as the next big thing who can't cut it in WWE and is gone in 3 months. But Jericho has been around for 17 years excelling. Well now he's going to stand and watch AJ's career burn out and fade away. He guarantees it.

He then talks about how Y2AJ was something special but AJ ruined it. And fans ruined it by choosing AJ over Y2J. He then lights the Y2AJ shirt on fire and throws it in the trash, symbolizing Style's career going up in flames.

They turned the lights off at the end and he delivered the last of his promo with the light of the fire gleaming off his face, which was a great visual. Really good segment from heel Jericho.


They replay the Big Boss Man Hall of Fame video from Monday. Is it just me or is this one of the shortest HOF vids?

Lucha Dragons vs. Barrett and Sheamus (with Rusev -- no Del Rio again)

Sheamus starts against Kalisto and uses his size to get his advantage early. Kalisto uses his speed to turn it around and tag in Sin Cara and the Dragons gain the advantage. After things break down, Kalisto is back up against Sheamus. A distraction from Barrett allows the League to get the advantage.

Ryback watches from the back.

SmackDown comes back from break and Barrett is working over Kalisto. He and Sheamus maintain control. A missed shoulder block in the corner neutralizes Sheamus and Kalisto tags Sin Cara as Sheamus tags in Barrett. Sin Cara comes out hot working over Barrett.

Towards the end of the match, Sin Cara is going up top but Rusev knocks him over while the ref is busy with Barrett. Barrett hits his bull hammer elbow for the win.

Barrett and Sheamus defeat the Lucha Dragons via pinfall

JoJo interviews Ryback after the match backstage. He says two little men can't beat two big guys but they tried. He feels bad for them because genetically and physically, not all men are created equal.


Raw recap of the Shane/Vince confrontation.

Renee Young interviews the Usos backstage, asking about their issues with the Dudleys. They talked about how as kids, they loved the Usos when they were kids. They respected them. But as adults, they have no respect for the Dudleys. Ziggler and Ambrose rolls in. Renee asks Dolph about repercussions about his issues with Stephanie last night. He says there's always repercussions. Deans says he's going to take the title Saturday.

The Wyatt Family vs. Dolph Ziggler/Usos/Dean Ambrose

The match starts with Harper and Ambrose. Ambrose gains some control and tags in Ziggler, who continues it. The team starts tagging in and out often working over Harper. Luke slides out of the ring and consults with Bray as SmackDown goes to commercial.

The show comes back with Harper working over Jey Uso. He is able to tag in Ziggler though and Ziggler comes out with some fire. However, when hitting the ropes, Erick Rowan clotheslines him and the Wyatts gain control. Harper is the man for the Family doing most of the work in the ring and he is the man that Dolph is able to hit with a big DDT to try to get the tag.

He tags in Jey Usos who dabs and then goes at Harper. Things break down and both Usos work on Harper and Rowan, leading to the double Rakishi move in the corner to both men and the double suicide dives outside.

Eventually, both Jey and Harper down. Jey tags in Dean and Harper tags in Rowan. Dean comes out with a ton of offense and a near fall after a swinging neck breaker. He hits his top rope elbow and goes for the pin, but Luke Harper breaks it up. The match breaks down with everyone running in. Strowman withstands two superkicks from Dolph and ends up missing a corner shoulder block and flying out the ring.

Rowan tries to roll up Ambrose but Ambrose kicks out. A string of moves leads to Ambrose hitting the Dirty Deeds DDT on Rowan for the 1-2-3.

The show ends with Ambrose standing on the turnbuckle and side eying the WrestleMania sign.
