The SmackDown Live crew took their talents to Oakland for this week’s edition. While Monday Night Raw prepares for No Mercy this Sunday, SmackDown Live is building towards Hell in A Cell on October 8th. We know that Shinsuke Nakamura will challenge Jinder Mahal for the WWE championship at the event. Last week, Mr. McMahon announced that Shane McMahon will battle Kevin Owens in Hell in a Cell. On this edition of SmackDown Live, Charlotte Flair earned the right to face Natalya for the Women’s title at the PPV. This week we’ll get the fallout of the attack on Mr. McMahon by Kevin Owens as Shane returns. Baron Corbin was set to face A.J. Styles for the United States title, but things took a turn for the worse for the Lone Wolf. With all that said, let’s look at the top moments from this edition of SmackDown Live.
10- Natalya was pissed at Lana calling her a crazy cat lady as she left the ring as she proclaimed to be the champ forever. Daniel Bryan came out to make a match between Charlotte Flair, Tamina, Becky Lynch and Naomi to see who faces Natalya at the Hell in a Cell PPV.
9- Kofi Kingston hit a crazy dive over the top rope onto Mojo Rawley.
8- Randy Orton hits the RKO on Aiden English for the win as he dove from the 2nd rope.
7- Charlotte Flair hit the moonsault onto Tamina & Naomi for a nearfall.
6- New Day hit the Midnight Hour on Zach Ryder to pick up the win.
5- Rusev cut a promo on Randy Orton after Orton’s match and said he would rip the fangs out of his mouth. The referee called for the bell as Rusev hit the ring and Orton went for the RKO, but Rusev pushed him off. Orton ran into Aiden English and was met with a superkick from Rusev allowing Rusev to pick up the win.
4- Baron Corbin attacked A.J. Styles before their match started, but Tye Dillinger hit the ring to take out Corbin. He clotheslined Corbin over the top rope and Corbin grabbed his leg in pain.
3- Tamina hit the Splash from the top rope just like her dad on Becky Lynch. Naomi broke up the nearfall and Lana pulled Naomi out of the ring, but was met with a kick in the head. Tamina nailed Naomi with a superkick as she tried to enter the ring and Charlotte hit a big boot on Tamina for the win.
2- Shane McMahon came out to begin the show by cutting a promo on Kevin Owens ahead of their match.
1- Kevin Owens returned the favor by cutting a promo on Shane via satellite during the show.
