Miz vs. Jeff Hardy
The Miz and John Morrsion began the show taunting Jeff Hardy showing all of his failures including the feud with Sheamus. The Miz dominated most of the match, until Hardy was able to push through and find momentum. He used his traditional offense and then hit The A-Lister with his infamous Twist of Fate. Before attempting the Swanton Bomb, Sheamus came out to taunt distracting Hardy. Miz capitalized and rolled up Hardy but Hardy reversed and scored the pinfall victory.
Result: Jeff Hardy defeats The Miz via pinfall.
Sasha Banks and Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross
Nikki Cross went right after Bayley and jumped on her back as Bayley tried to prepare for the match. Bliss saved her partner from the 2-on-1 attack by going after Banks. Referees had to go to the ring to restore order and get the competitors situated so the match can officially begin. Cross wanted vengeance and did whatever it took to beat these two. Bliss helped containing her except for one costly mistake. Bayley caught Cross in a roll-up for the three count.
Result: Sasha Banks and Bayley defeat Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross vis pinfall
New Day vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro
The team of Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro had control early on in the match. They had a smart game plan coming in to attack and neutralize Kofi Kingston. With Cesaro’s strength and Nakamura’s strong strikes they were able to take Big E out of action for a little bit. Big E, got heated and caused an all-out brawl in the ring. The ref had no choice but to toss this match out and have it end in a no contest. Cesaro and Nakamura controlled the brawl from there as they put Big E and Kofi through a table. The challengers then held the titles at the end of the night to close the show.
Result: New Day vs Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro ends in a no contest
This weeks show of Smackdown was pretty good. There was not a lot of matches as it was mostly promos. However, based on the matches only, I would give this show a B+.
