WWE SmackDown returns to the USA Network this coming Thursday night (May 19, 2016) from Greenville, South Carolina but the show was taped, as usual, on Tuesday. That means full spoilers are readily available if you're the impatient type who doesn't want to wait a couple days for the payoff.
Unwrap that present early:
- Kevin Owens def. Cesaro via the dreaded roll up distraction finish. Sami Zayn and The Miz were on commentary and got involved.
- Dana Brooke def. Paige in a short match with Becky Lynch sitting in on commentary.
- Dolph Ziggler def. Sheamus before Baron Corbin showed up to cut a promo on their match at Extreme Rules.
- Chris Jericho cut a promo on Dean Ambrose and the Asylum Match when the cage lowered and Ambrose attacked him wearing a ring crew worker disguise.
- Another vignette to make Darren Young great again.
- Big Cass & The New Day def. The Dudley Boyz & The Vaudevillains when Cass pinned Bubba Ray.
- Roman Reigns vs. Luke Gallows didn't have a finish because a big brawl broke out between The Bloodline and The Club. It eventually led to a confrontation between Reigns and AJ Styles, one that saw Styles get the advantage like he did on Raw and celebrating to end the show.
That's how WWE gets to Extreme Rules. You watching?
