WWE SmackDown spoilers (May 14, 2019): Kofi on The KO Show, Money in the Bank build, more!

Today is one of those magical days when WWE is in Europe and we get some information in advance which helps us decide if we want to spend two hours with WWE (or more, if you count 205 Live) on Tuesday night.

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 pair of matches featuring participant in this Sunday’s Money in the Bank ladder matches, a KO Show confrontation between WWE champ Kofi Kingston & #1 contender Kevin Owens, and more!

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

Spoilers will updated here as they come in after 2PM Eastern, so keep refreshing for the latest:

- Roman Reigns is out first to a loud mixed reaction. He introduces The Miz, who is “Wild Card-ing” onto the blue brand tonight. It isn’t long before Shane McMahon & Elias follow. McMahon bans Miz from the arena, then introduces the Planet’s Tag Team champions, Daniel Bryan & Rowan. The heel quartet attacks the Big Dog, and his cousins Jimmy & Jey make the save. The babyfaces (Miz is still here) fight them off, and the bad guys exit.

- Backstage, Shane makes a four-on-three handicap match for later tonight. If Miz gets involved, their Money in the Bank match is cancelled!

- Randy Orton promos in the ring before the Fatal 4Way. Andrade & Zelina Vega also get mic time to deliver a spoiler, El Ídolo will claim the briefcase on Sunday.

- Andrade def. Randy Orton, Ali & Finn Bálor by pinning Finn. Matty Paddock of The Independent describes it as “ladder madness”. Big moments include Orton hitting moves onto everyone on the announce desk, and Ali hitting a Spanish Fly on Andrade and splashing onto him while he was on the outside holding a ladder.

- Andrade climbs to grab one of the prop briefcases, but Ricochet shows up and grabs it instead.

- In a backstage segment, Kofi Kingston asks Xavier Woods to let him go on The KO Show and face Kevin Owens alone.

- Charlotte Flair is here. To the point segment where she vows to end her rivalry with Becky Lynch Sunday.

- Pre-taped promos from Aleister Black and Lacey Evans are shown.

- Daniel Bryan, Rowan, Elias & Shane McMahon def. Roman Reigns & The Usos after a Coast 2 Coast from Shane O’Mac on Jimmy or Jey. The Miz ran in after the bell to prevent a further beatdown

- Ember Moon & Paige deliver promos from backstage.

- Paige introduces Kairi Sane & Asuka, so we are getting the women’s tag match. Sane & Asuka will now be known as “Kabuki Warriors”. The IIconics are on commentary.

- Kabuki Warriors def. Fire & Desire when Asuka rolls up Mandy Rose

- Lars Sullivan appears on the ‘tron

- The KO Show is our main event. Kevin Owens is interviewing Kofi (who is in the ring) from backstage. Eventually Owens appears for a brawl on the ramp. Sami Zayn shows up to help his best friend/mortal enemy! Woods is out to even the odds! The good guys fend the former YEP-ers off, and Kingston stands tall to end the taping. A no DQ tag team between these four is announced for the post-205 Live dark match.
