WWE SmackDown Live live results – October 9, 2018


That exceeded expectations.

Randy Orton picked up the win after he stuck his thumb in Show’s eye and nailed him with an RKO.

The ‘Viper’ joins Hardy, Cena and Angle in the World Cup field!

And that wraps up a pretty good episode of SmackDown Live, and now we look ahead towards SmackDown 1000 next week.

Thanks for following along with our live coverage of the show, we’ll see you back here next week!


It’s just been announced that next week on SmackDown 1000, Rey Mysterio will make his WWE return to take on Shinsuke Nakamura in a World Cup qualifier.

Holy mackerel.


Aiden shows us the rest of the clip from last week, and it turns out it was just Lana telling Aiden how much she and Lana appreciate him. The clip abruptly ends with Aiden advancing toward Lana, before it pauses, and English brings out Rusev.

The ‘Shakespeare of Song’ says that he will destroy the video if Rusev ditches Lana.

Turns out English was hacked – Which I’m sure has NOTHING TO DO WITH LANA BEING RUSSIAN – and the rest of the clip shows Aiden being well and truly rejected. What a mug.

English tell’s Lana that the offer is still on the table though, and proclaims:

“When you get bored of them Rusev Days, come and enjoy an Aiden Night.”

This prompted Rusev to storm to the ring, with Aiden managing to just about escape unscathed.

I thought that was a decent little segment to be honest. Aiden’s doing a great job of this.


Up next, Aiden English presents the rest of what happened One Night in Milwaukee.

As fun as Miz and Bryan were on commentary, it did take away from the match’s finish a little bit there.

Styles won with a Phenomenal Forearm, seemingly out of nowhere, as Bryan rose to applaud the WWE Champion.


Miz and Bryan are on commentary for this one, which is adding a bit of extra spice to things.

The match itself is sound too, Shelton Benjamin is into the commercial break on top after preventing a Phenomenal Forearm with a knee right to Styles’ kisser.


That was fun.

It went pretty much how you’d imagine, with Bryan and AJ playing the “respect” game, and Miz trying to drive a wedge and cause some conflict.

Bryan did get emotional though, and said that AJ is in the way of him achieving his dream, which is of course to win the WWE Championship.

It all went back round to Miz though, and after calling out AJ as being the reason the WWE Title isn’t prestigious or headlining pay-per-views, states that he has first dibs on whoever wins at Crown Jewel.

Up next, Styles himself takes on the man who beat Bryan last week, Shelton Benjamin.


Paige has just announced that at Evolution, Becky Lynch will once again defend her SmackDown Women’s Title against Charlotte Flair, only this time, it will be in the first ever LAST WOMAN STANDING match!


Coming up next, It’s Miz TV with guests AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan, who will clash for AJ’s WWE Championship at Crown Jewel.

This could get very, very interesting indeed.


Hardy focused his offense on Joe’s injured left leg throughout that one, which AJ Styles worked on at Super Show-Down.

And… the match has been called off as the referee deemed Joe unable to continue, and Hardy is declared the winner, taking the third spot in the WWE World Cup. He joins Cena, Angle and either Big Show or Randy Orton, who will tussle tonight.


Becky retains! Sort of.

The champ did attempt to get herself counted out, but Charlotte manages to prevent her and direct her back into the ring.

The ref is about to DQ Lynch, but Charlotte rolls her up and the ref decides to count the pin instead. Lynch kicks out at two, and the match goes on.

Charlotte looks like she’s about to be counted out after a Bexploder, but she manages to pull Lynch out to restart the ref’s count at nine.

The Natural Selection is hit by Flair, but Becky manages to roll out the ring. Charlotte then beats her up, but lets the count get to 10… and it ended in a double countout. So I was almost right.

And then, being the absolute sore loser that she is, Charlotte Spears Becky through the LED wall at the top of the stage.

Up next, Jeff Hardy vs. Samoa Joe in a WWE World Cup qualifier.


Into the first commercial break of this one, and despite Lynch using heel tactics in the early stages, the crowd are still firmly behind her, because of course they are.

A pretty even affair so far in this one. Still betting on a countout. Well I’m not betting because betting on wrestling would be stupid, but that’s what I’m predicting.


We’re kicking things off hot tonight with the SmackDown Women’s Championship match!

Becky Lynch defends against Charlotte Flair, but remember: if Lynch get’s DQ’ed, she loses the title.

Odds on a countout?



It’s the Big Show.
