WWE SmackDown Live Results – April 23rd, 2019

Daniel McIver runs down the results for tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live.

A week removed from the Superstar Shakeup; Smackdown Live had to compete with the announcement of AJ Styles vs Seth Rollins last night on RAW. Let’s see if they can do just that…

  • Shane McMahon kicks off the show to discuss the actions of Roman Reigns last week. Demands Roman comes out to confront him however, before anything could happen, Reigns is jumped by Elias and Shane which leads to a beat-down.
  • MEN’S SINGLES MATCH– Finn Balor vs Andrade. MATCH RESULT; Balor wins via pinfall.
  • Backstage, Elias challenges Roman Reigns to a match at Money in the Bank through song before he and Shane leave the arena in a limo.
  • WOMAN’S SINGLES MATCH– Peyton Royce vs Kairi Sane. MATCH RESULT; Sane wins via pinfall.
  • Post match- Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville come out and sarcastically clap Asuka, Paige and Sane.
  • Aleister Black speaks to the camera in a backstage pre-tape discussing his character.
  • Lars Sullivan attacks Chad Gable and The Singh Brothers before the planned Gable vs Jinder Mahal match was scheduled to start. R-Truth comes out to avenge his beat-down last week but, again, is demolished by Sullivan.
  • Roman Reigns accepts Elias’ challenge for a match at Money In The Bank.
  • Charlotte Flair demands Becky Lynch to come out and explain why Lynch ‘deserves’ the Smackdown Woman’s Championship even though she never defeated Charlotte. Lynch says she knew she could beat Ronda Rousey as ‘she knew she could beat Charlotte Flair’. Bayley then comes out and says Lynch has never beaten her. The segment ends setting up Bayley vs Charlotte next.
  • WOMAN’S SINGLES MATCH– Bayley vs Charlotte. MATCH RESULT; Charlotte wins via pinfall- NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER.
  • Becky Lynch confirms she will be defending her RAW Woman’s Championship at Money in the Bank vs Lacey Evans and then defending her Smackdown Live Woman’s Championship against Charlotte on the same night.
  • The same ‘FireFly Fun House’ Bray Wyatt segment from RAW aired again.
  • MEN’S SINGLES MATCH– Shinsuke Nakamura vs Kofi Kingston. MATCH RESULT; Kingston wins via disqualification after Rusev attacks him.
  • Post match; Kevin Owens turns heel and attacks Kofi Kingston.

Overall, a decent episode of Smackdown. Having Charlotte go up against Lynch again is incredibly tiring however- Roman vs Elias is great and the furthering of Andrade vs Balor, Bayley and Owens remain constant highlights.
