WWE SmackDown Live Results – 25th June, 2019

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

With Stomping Grounds in the rear view, there is no rest for the wicked as we set the pace for the one night of the year WWE goes extreme….

  • Shane McMahon opens in a video warning the rest of the roster that he’s in a bad mood.
  • The New Day come out to the ring and Kofi Kingston talks about his ups and downs as WWE Champion and his upcoming title match with Samoa Joe at Extreme Rules. Dolph Ziggler interrupts and says Kofi took the cowards way out on Sunday. He announces that he will face Kingston tonight in a two-out-of-three falls match and if he wins, the match at Extreme Rules will be a triple threat.
  • The Miz approached Shane McMahon’s office, only to be stopped by Elias. Elias tells Shane that Miz wants to face him again and he agrees, if Miz can beat Elias in a two-out-of-three falls match tonight.
  • The New Day (Big E & Xavier Woods) defeated SmackDown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan & Rowan via pinfall.
  • Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens attacked The New Day post-match, only for Heavy Machinery to make the save.
  • The New Day & Heavy Machinery (Tucker & Otis) defeated Daniel Bryan, Rowan, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens via pinfall.
  • We see a video package of RAw with Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss and then an exclusive of Cross telling Bliss that she’ll face Bayley tonight and if she wins, Bliss gets a title rematch at Extreme Rules.
  • Elias defeated The Miz in a two out of three falls match 2-1. (Elias wins first fall via pin, Miz wins second via DQ, Elias wins third via pin)
  • Post-match, Shane and Miz beat down Elias with McMahon hitting a coast-to-coast on The A-Lister.
  • Kayla Braxton interviews Finn Balor about future challengers for his Intercontinental Title. Shinsuke Nakamura appears and seemingly offers up a challenge.
  • Nikki Cross defeated Bayley via pinfall, meaning Alexa Bliss will face Bayley for the SmackDown Women’s Title at Extreme Rules.
  • Carmella hunts for WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth. They find a broken Drake Maverick, and Truth offers to let him win the belt but it was al a joke, and he runs away. Maverick gets taken out by a gaggle of lower-carders running after Truth.
  • Sonya Deville defeated Ember Moon via pinfall.
  • Alesiter Black shouts about nobody accepting his challenge. He hears a knock however, and Black smiles.
  • WWE Champion Kofi Kingston defeated Dolph Ziggler in a two-out-of-three falls match (Kofi wins first fall via pin, Dolph wins second fall via pin, Kofi wins third fall via pin.

A really fun episode of SmackDown. I’m already fed up with the two-out-of-three falls stip being over booked but both matches worked in different ways. The repeat booking of match into another match is starting to grate on me too. Intrigued by the Finn/Nakamura confrontation and the Cross win over Bayley gives a new dynamic to the Bliss vs Bayley feud as well.
