King Nakamura was the highlight of SmackDown this week

New, 3 comments

One of the big moments on last night’s (May 14) episode of SmackDown occurred when Tamina and Natalya defeated Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax to win the Women’s tag team titles. But their crowning achievement still couldn’t topple the majesty of King Shinsuke Nakamura.

Nakamura kicked King Corbin’s head off and stole his crown. Shinsuke pretty much transformed into a new man once he wore that crown. It’s about time that Corbin is demoted to being a Baron again, while King Nakamura takes his rightful place on the SmackDown throne.

Here are the full highlights from this week’s show:

  • Tamina & Natalya vs. Jax & Baszler – WWE Women’s Tag Team Title Match
  • Roman Reigns convinces Jimmy Uso to challenge Cesaro
  • Big E, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens derail Apollo Crews’ Medal Ceremony
  • Cesaro promises to give Roman Reigns & The Usos a Swing
  • Rey Mysterio vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • Rey & Domink confident heading into WrestleMania Backlash
  • Belair and Bayley engage in war of words ahead of WrestleMania Backlash
  • Shinsuke Nakamura vs. King Corbin
  • Aleister Black delivers “The Lesson”
  • Adam Pearce sets a shocking Intercontinental Title Match for Apollo Crews
  • Cesaro vs. Jimmy Uso
  • Shinsuke Nakamura is a mood with King Corbin’s crown
  • Cesaro ready for a championship moment years in the making
