WWE SMACKDOWN RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR DEC. 6
Cain here filling in for the evening. I wonder what are the odds that this show begins with Baron Corbin.
SmackDown kicks off with a recap video of last week’s angle between Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan, where Bryan was dragged to the depths of hell and had his hair seemingly ripped out.
Once that video is over, The Miz makes his entrance in a suit and steps into the ring. Looks like it’s time for MizTV.
Miz says his guest was supposed to be Daniel Bryan, but thanks to what happened last week, that’s not going to happen. Bryan has virtually disappeared. Miz extols the virtues of Bryan and how much the WWE fans adore him. Miz has never liked Bryan but he does care about him, and he is determined to find out what happened to Daniel.
Here is an interruption from the Firefly Fun House! Yowie wowie!
Wyatt says that Miz doesn’t want to know what happened to Daniel Bryan. The Fiend might not be done with Daniel Bryan just yet. Sad sound effects play as Wyatt expresses doubt that Bryan will even make it to TLC. But maybe the Miz wants to play with Wyatt instead?
Ramblin’ Rabbit talks its way into more trouble before getting shut up by Wyatt. He talks about how he used to have a family, but now he has a chance to join a new family. Wyatt holds up a framed picture of Miz, Maryse, and their two children. Does Miz want to come play with him now?
Miz leaves the ring and makes his way to the back as Wyatt waves goodbye.
Time for a commercial break.
Back from break, Miz is on the phone trying to comfort his wife. He warns her to lock the door and set the alarm. Miz says he is leaving the arena and is on his way home.
Here comes Mandy Rose (with Sonya Deville) to the ring, for the first match of the evening against Alexa Bliss (with Nikki Cross).
Alexa Bliss vs. Mandy Rose
The referee for the match is Jessica Carr, the first full-time female referee on SmackDown.
Mandy tells Alexa to not touch her face. Alexa chases Mandy to the outside of the ring but takes a knee to the face. Mandy has Alexa back in the ring, stretching her out on the mat. Mandy rips out Alexa’s eyelashes! Mandy follows up with a dropkick and is in complete control.
Mandy goes for a running knee but Bliss counters with a roll-up for a two count. Mandy taunts Alexa, which fires up Bliss. She takes Rose down to that mat and uses the ropes to stomp Rose’s face in. Nikki Cross and Sonya Deville mix it up on the outside while Bliss takes over and climbs to the top, looking for Twisted Bliss. She nails it!
Alexa Bliss defeats Mandy Rose
Drake Maverick finds Dana Brooke in catering and brings up her upcoming date with Batista. He asks what does Dave Batista have that he doesn’t? Ha. Elias pops up from behind Drake and has a song to provide the answer. Batista is a tall millionaire, so Drake has a better chance of getting lucky with a blow up doll. The only action he gets is with lotion and tissues. The final line of the song is about Drake’s wife waking up in Elias’ bed, so Maverick slaps The Drifter in the face and storms off.
And now time for a break.
And ad for Raw hypes up Rey Mysterio defending the US title against AJ Styles next week.
Back in the arena, Drake Maverick is in the ring. He is sick of everybody making a joke out of him and his marriage. He wants Elias out there not for a wrestling match, but for a fight.
Here comes Elias, with Dana Brooke.
Maverick charges Elias, but Elias holds him at bay by simply palming Drake’s forehead. Elias gets Drake over the knee for a spanking and lays it on him while Dana laughs. Elias is measuring Drake up for a kick, and punts him in the ass right out of the ring. Dana tosses Drake back into the ring. Elias finishes this humiliation off with his finisher. Brooke comes in and puts a foot on Maverick, and Elias counts the 1-2-3. Brooke’s music plays and she celebrates with Elias as the segment comes to an end.
Miz is backstage walking faster than Kevin Nash can. He gets curious about a strange room and kicks his way in. There on a table is that picture of his family. Funhouse Bray blurts out “Say cheese!” and attacks him from behind with Sister Abigail’s Kiss while creepily singing a song about being home for the holidays.
Time for a commercial.
We’re back from commercial. A ref helps Miz up, and Miz is catching his breath while wondering where the photo of his family went.
We get a social media recap of Tribute to the Troops.
Big E and Kofi hype up the crowd with their usual entrance and make their way to the ring. New Day will be ringside for a fatal 4-way elimination match to determine their opponents for the SmackDown tag titles at TLC. Big E taunts Corey Graves about their podcast being more popular than his.

Gran Metalik starts things off with Shorty G. Gable counters his way out of a wristlock and takes Metalik down to the mat. Ali tags in and strikes Metalik from the top rope. Ali and Metalik exchange some fancy flips and then arm drags. Both men are at a standoff, unable to gain an advantage over the other. Tucker and Dorado tag in. The Revival stick their noses in where they don’t belong, so Tucker and Dorado team up to take them out.
Both members of Lucha House Party now hit stereo moonsaults to the outside onto their foes. Metalik launches himself at Otis in the ring but Otis catches him. Heavy Machinery hits their finisher on Metalik for the pin.

Shorty G has Tucker in an arm hold when we return from break. Scott Dawson tags in and goes at it with Tucker. Otis tags in and starts whooping Dawson’s ass. Otis’s shirt comes right off and the crowd goes wild. The New Day appreciate the extra skin as well. Otis no sells all of Dawson’s offense with some potentially sexual thrusts. Wilder tags himself in but Otis continues to beat up both members of The Revival. Here comes the caterpillar on Dawson. Wilder comes out of nowhere with the sunset flip, and with an assist from Dawson, puts Otis away.
The Revival eliminates Heavy Machinery.
All four guys left in the match throw down fists in the middle of the ring. The action spills to the outside, where the the Revival get tossed into the New Day at the commentary table. New Day tosses off their headsets and chaos is about to break out while the ref tries to get everyone under control. Time for a commercial break.
Back from commercial, Dawson is in control over Shorty G. Wilder tags in but Shorty G doesn’t care, he hits a double german on the both of them. Ali assists with a superkick into a german suplex for a close call on the pinfall. Ali plants Wilder with a tornado DDT and goes up top for a 450. Dawson saves his partner. Ali gets caught on a suicide dive to the outside and is tosses into the time keeper’s area.
Shorty G is inside the ring with Wilder and grabs him in an ankle lock. Dawson makes the save with an uppercut. One Shatter Machine later, and that’s it.
The Revival win the match by eliminating Mustafa Ali and Shorty G.
It’s going to be New Day vs. The Revival for the tag titles at TLC. Dawson and Wilder have the mics. They say all the silly New Day gimmicks will be done away with soon enough when they reclaim the tag titles. They are taking things back to the old days, with old-school, old-fashioned tag team wrestling. Then New Day can go to their podcast and explain to the world what it was like to lose to the best damn tag team in this company, The Revival.
Now it’s time for a recap of last week’s angle with Roman Reigns assaulting Robert Roode.

Lacey brings up her background as a United States marine. The crowd chants “Nasty” at Sasha, after Lacey calls her a nasty. Sasha and Bayley are a pathetic pair of so-called leaders, and Evans will drop her where she stands if she gets in her face again.
Lacey feigns the punch, and Sasha falls down in anticipation of the strike. Banks is down and embarrassed as Evans walks out of the ring towards the stage. Bayley suddenly comes out and ambushes Lacey! Sasha joins in the attack, and the best friends stand tall over Evans.
We get a recap of the Miz/Wyatt stuff from earlier in the night.
