Smackdown Live: Results (4/18/2017) AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin, Charlotte Flair Becomes No. 1 Contender

Wrestlenewz brings you play-by-play coverage and results for tonight’s Smackdown Live broadcast. Pre-show starts at 7:50 pm EST and the main show starts at 8 pm EST. Who will win the six-pack challenge and become the No. 1 contender to face Randy Orton for the WWE World Championship? Tweet and follow @wrestlenewz on Twitter.

Smackdown Live: 8 pm EST

Show opens up and Charlotte Flair comes out to the ring and cuts a shrill promo complaining about the fact that she has not been granted a Smackdown Women’s Title shot yet. Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi ends up coming out and tells Charlotte that this is Smackdown Live and people need to earn their shots around here. The two women start to scuffle and Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon comes out and makes a match between them. If Charlotte wins, she will challenge Naomi for the championship. That no. 1 contenders opportunity will happen next.

Natalya is backstage complaining to Shane that Charlotte just has to go out and start whining and she gets an opportunity at contending for the title. Carmella comes in with Jame Ellsworth and they agree that it is unfair for Charlotte to be handed things on a silver platter. Tamina comes in and agrees with all the discontent regarding Charlotte’s seeming entitlement.

Six Pack Challenge For The WWE World Champion No. 1 Contenders Spot: Luke Harper vs. Sami Zayn vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Jinder Mahal vs. Mojo Rawley vs. Erick Rowan

Everybody starts brawling with each other as it goes to commercial.

Back again and a trifecta of superplexes are executed one after the other. Harper then clotheslines Ziggler. Rowan powerbombs Harper. Jinder rolls up Rowan and gets a 2-count. Some of the competitors end up at ringside and Harper launches himself at them all with a suicide dive. Then Ziggler is about to jump out onto them as well but as he bounces off the ropes Rowan hits him with a wheel kick. Rowan then powerbombs Ziggler over the top rope and out on top of the rest of them. Commercial break.

Action returns and Ziggler headbutts Mojo in the ring. The rest of them are selling somewhere at ringside. Ziggler jumps off the turnbuckle but Mojo catches him in mid-air and delivers a big slam. Mojo cracks him with a devastating blow that lays Ziggler out but then Jinder tosses Mojo out of the ring. Jinder pins Ziggler and nearly gets the 3-count but Sami just breaks up the count in time.

Sami hits a big flip over the top rope out onto Harper. He hops back up on the apron and does a split legged moonsault onto Mojo. Back in the ring and Sami sets up for a Helluva Kick but The Bollywood Boys grab his legs and prevent him taking his run. Jinder runs up and slams Sami with his finisher and gets the 3-count.

Winner: Jinder Mahal

The crowd is booing and Jinder cuts a promo on them saying how dare they boo him? He says that the Americans don’t accept diversity but they will have no choice but to accept Jinder Mahal as WWE Champion.

WWE World Champion Randy Orton comes out and tells Jinder that he’s won himself a big opportunity but the prize won’t be the title belt he holds in his hands. Then Orton addresses Bray Wyatt and their upcoming House Of Horrors match. Bray comes on the big screen and cuts one of his eerie promos and tells Orton to run.

    You didn’t do sh!t Nattie! Go back to NXT and get the stickiness out of the women’s belt there… ??

    • Distraught Dewey

      Nattie didn’t do sh!t but she did have a farting gimmick Lol.

  • xXwindsofchangeXx

    Why are American Alpha being booked like a steaming pile? :-(

    • Lord Stevie REGAL #blublood

      At least they wont end up like the ascension

  • xXwindsofchangeXx

    Geez. Why isn’t Epico – or anyone for that matter – using that double underhook gutbuster as a finisher? That thing looks sick.

  • Lord Stevie REGAL #blublood

    No reaction for alpha watsoever. And Jordan has the best hot tag in wwe, well had

  • xXwindsofchangeXx

    So they’re “The Colons” now. AKA what they should have f*cking been five years ago without all the mindnumbingly cartoonish gimmick bullsh*t

    • Barooq Kidd #POP

      Exactly!

      • xXwindsofchangeXx

        They were actually at their best when they were just a tag team with Rosa as their manager. But they’re good wrestlers that have been cursed with being WWE’s guinea pigs for weird gimmicks.

  • Distraught Dewey

    Jinder won. Get ready for SDL ratings to drop.

  • xXwindsofchangeXx

    Yay! KO’s doing an open challenge. This should be fun.

    Man, Corbin going to win the WWE belt within a year or two

    • https://www.twitter.com/HawkGIVEEMHELL NO1SC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

      i feel like this year would be too soon

      • ‘Drowen Hart #NewNation ????

        Given how Smackdown lacks depth, I could see it happening this year

      • Barooq Kidd #POP

        Who knows though..Juicer Mahal has a title shot now, anything can happen lol

        • Distraught Dewey

          I seriously hope Ginger Mahal doesn’t win the title.

        • https://www.twitter.com/HawkGIVEEMHELL NO1SC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

          true but be honest Corbin getting the strap b4 Nakamura makes sense?

          • Barooq Kidd #POP

            Haha none whatsoever

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NewNation ????

    HA! HA! HA!

  • https://www.twitter.com/HawkGIVEEMHELL NO1SC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

    #RIPROSEY

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NewNation ????

    Good lesson Tozawa

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NewNation ????

    What chants smh

  • Lord Stevie REGAL #blublood

    Wouldn’t be surprised if they let Jinder win the title tho. Especially if the match is at Backlash. If they build him up with his Indian faction, and have Randy do the whole underestimate thing, could be refreshing. Hell he could have a Christian reign for all I care, would be something new for a change.

  • https://www.twitter.com/HawkGIVEEMHELL NO1SC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

    lol so can Fox be put back in the women division

  • https://www.twitter.com/HawkGIVEEMHELL NO1SC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

    lol saying that she will snap? too soon

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NewNation ????

    Right to Gulak

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NewNation ????

    Bring back Manik- Dewey
