WWE Smackdown Results
–Randy Orton does an in-ring promo about Roman Reigns, and says that SummerSlam was just one battle, but he will win the war. He hypes tonight’s match against Rob Van Dam as an example of what he is capable of.
(1) Seth Rollins def. Jack Swagger via count-out. Said to be a good match. Rollins hit the Curb Stomp on the ring apron, and Swagger ended up getting counted out on the floor. Bo Dallas comes out after the match and gives a motivation speech to Swagger, so it looks like the program they started on Raw will be continuing.
-Backstage, The Miz asks Corporate Kane for a shot at the Intercontinental Championship. Kane says he’s got to earn it, and won’t just be handed the opportunity again. He books Miz vs. Roman Reigns for later tonight.
(2) Rusev def. Sin Cara. This was basically a squash match.
