WWE SmackDown spoilers (May 9, 2017): Ziggler/Nakamura, Natalya/Lynch, 205 Live, more!

It's that magical time of the year, when WWE travels to Europe - and now, it’s not just Raw whose live broadcast gets spoiled. With SmackDown’s move to Tuesday, we also get some information in advance to help us decide if we want to tune in for two (three, counting 205 Live) this evening.

Team Blue is coming to us from the same place the red brand did last night - London's O2 Arena. Thanks to the five hour time difference between the United Kingdom and the East coast of the U.S. of A., that means advance reports about what goes down on a show which is scheduled to feature a Becky Lynch vs. Natalya match, Dolph Ziggler confronting Shinsuke Nakamura, responses from champs Randy Orton & The Usos to their respective challengers, Jinder Mahal and Breezango, and much more!

We'll still be watching along with our usual live blog, which will of course cover any segments not shown to the fans in attendance, but more importantly feature ReverendKain’s unmatched play-by-play. You can join the fun at 8PM Eastern here.

Unwrap that present early:

- Dark match featured Tye Dillinger beating Aiden English

- Randy Orton opens the show, but is interrupted by Jinder Mahal. Mahal shows photos on the TitanTron of his photo shoot with Randy’s World title.

- Kevin Owens, AJ Styles and Baron Corbin also make their way out to have words. Sami Zayn runs in and attacks Corbin, setting up a six-man tag main event (Mahal, KO, Corbin vs. Orton, Styles, Zayn)

- Natalya def. Becky Lynch by roll-up, probably thanks to distraction by Tamina, Carmella & James Ellsworth at ringside

- Backstage talking segment to set up the six-person tag at Backlash, with Naomi, Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch issuing a challenge to “the Welcoming Committee” (Natalya, Tamina & Carmella)

- Lana video

- FASHION FILES! Featuring Tyler in a bobby hat and ‘Dango dressed as Sherlock Holmes

- Erick Rowan def. Luke Harper with a new finisher

- Ziggler/Nakamura segment. Big pop for Shinsuke, who wants a match tonight. Dolph turns him down, saying he wants it to happen at Backlash. Segment ends with Ziggler attacking “The Artist”

- New Day video

- Breezango def. The Ascension. The Usos come out and cut a promo about how things are gonna get real for the Fashion Police in #12Days

- The Brian Kendrick implores reminds fans to stick around for 205 Live via the Titantron; there will be another Ziggler/Nakamura dark match after that taping

- Mahal, KO, Corbin def. Orton, Styles, Zayn when Jinder pins the champ after Orton hits an RKO on Owens

-205 Live starts with Austin Aries and Jack Gallagher in the ring (made up with red carpet & Union Jacks); they share a toast and down a pint... somewhere in there Neville is called a “wanker”

- Mustafa Ali def. Tony Nese via pinfall following an inverted 450

- They announce Cedric Alexander is returning “soon”

- Akira Tozawa def. The Brian Kendrick via pinfall with a roll-up. Kendrick attacked Tozawa afterwards.
