WWE SmackDown Live in Brief: August 21 2018

The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) beat The Bludgeon Brothers in a No DQ match to win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles when Woods and Kingston both pinned Harper after a Woods top rope elbow through a table.

Randy Orton beat Jeff Hardy by DQ when an irate Hardy stomped Orton in the groin. After the match Hardy drove Orton through a table with the Swanton Bomb.

Samoa Joe attacked and choked AJ Styles out with the Coquina Clutch as AJ Styles was interviewed by Renee Young. After the match Joe cut a promo into the camera taunting Wendy Styles.

Becky Lynch cut a tremendous promo to explain why she turned on Charlotte Flair at Summerslam. The fans loved and chanted for Becky, then booed Charlotte when she ran out to attack her. Paige then sent out the rest of the women’s division to separate them.

The Miz, with Maryse at his side, mocked Daniel Bryan by pretending to announce his retirement. The fans actually bought it until he added “from ever facing Daniel Bryan again!” Daniel Bryan then came out calling Miz a coward. Maryse said Bryan should go home and call himself “Daniel Bella”. This brought out a furious Brie Bella who attacked Miz as Maryse bailed. Bryan then announced Paige had signed a mixed tag match for Hell in a Cell!

Rusev and Lana beat Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas and Zelina Vega when Rusev made Almas tap to the Accolade, this after Aiden English stopped Almas from using a chair.

Peyton Royce (with Billie Kay) pinned Naomi with a fisherman suplex.

The Bar vs Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows was set up for next week’s show in a backstage segment with Renee Young.

US Champ Shinsuke Nakamura announced the USA was now the “United States of NakaAmerica”.

Paige agreed to give Carmella her title rematch with Charlotte next week. R Truth, who had earlier challenged Carmella to a match (!?), then carried her off!
