WWE SmackDown Live Results – 21st May, 2019

Daniel McIver runs down the results from tonight’s SmackDown Live.

After an above average night previously, the blue brand of Smackdown Live had something to live up to. With the return of Big E, a WrestleMania re-match and the exciting new 24/7 title- let’s see if it did just that.

  • Backstage, Shane confirms to Elias he will be ringside for his match against Roman Reigns later on tonight.
  • New Day make their entrance and reveal that Big E is back from injury from underneath a blanket…but it’s not actually him. Big E then arrives back out to a huge pop. Big E gets a ‘Welcome Back’ party in the ring that is eventually crashed by Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Both sides hype up Zayn vs Kingston later on tonight.
  • Backstage- R-Truth is in disguise attempting to hide the 24/7 title.
  • MEN’S SINGLES MATCH– Ali vs Andrade. MATCH RESULT- Ali wins via a roll-up after a fantastic match.
  • Backstage- Carmella has given R-Truth a makeover to try and hide him from the rest of the locker-room.
  • A Lars Sullivan recap package airs.
  • WOMAN’S SINGLES MATCH– Carmella vs Mandy Rose. MATCH RESULT- The match is thrown out after the locker room empties trying to get R-Truth’s Championship who was at ringside.
  • Backstage- Bayley states that, now Bayley is a champion- she has moved past the hugs and wants everyone to bring their best.
  • R-Truth and Carmella run into the female locker room whilst trying to escape the locker-room.
  • Before Sami vs Kofi- we cut backstage and see Big E being checked out by Woods, Kofi and referees, clutching his knee.
  • MEN’S SINGLES MATCH- Sami Zayn vs Kofi Kingston. MATCH RESULT- Kingston wins via pinfall.
  • Post match- Heyman appeared at the top of the ramp holding Brock’s Money in the Bank briefcase.
  • Dolph Ziggler makes his return after five months of absence and absolutely brutalises Kofi Kingston. Kingston is stretchered to the back but gets off the stretcher on the ramp and walks to the back.
  • Roman is walking backstage in the car park but hears guitar strumming. Elias is standing, playing his guitar on top of a truck and runs down Roman- alongside Rhode Island.
  • WOMAN’S TAG TEAM MATCH- Lacey Evans and Charlotte vs Becky Lynch and Bayley. MATCH RESULT- Bayley and Lynch win via roll-up.
  • Backstage- Truth continues to run from the locker-room.
  • Dolph Ziggler is questioned backstage about why he attacked Kingston but refuses to answer just to the interviewer- says he will give it to all of the crowd. Ziggler comes out to the ramp and states that Kingston got the opportunity he has deserved all his career so he had to do what he did.
  • Dolph Ziggler vs Kofi Kingston for the WWE Title is confirmed for Super-Showdown.
  • A promo package airs detailing both Randy Orton and Triple H’s careers together ahead of their match at Super Showdown.
  • MEN’S SINGLES MATCH- Elias vs Roman Reigns. MATCH RESULT- Reigns wins via pinfall.
  • Post match- Shane attempts to attack Reigns but Roman gets the upper hand momentarily before being lain out by a Claymore Kick from Drew McIntyre to close the show.

Overall- a good episode of Smackdown Live. Few good matches, Big E returned, the 24/7 title was a lot of fun but easily the biggest talking point is Dolph Ziggler’s return and subsequent promo. Absolutely fantastic and I for one cannot wait to see what is next.
