The show opens with a recap of The Usos confronting RK-Bro and laying them out on WWE RAW.

In-Ring Segment: RK-Bro

Randy Orton and Riddle come to the ring. “The Original Bro” says he’s stoked to be back on WWE SmackDown and gets sidetracked by his love of SmackDown. Orton gets things back in track by recapping how The Usos challenged RK-Bro on Monday night, and he then calls SmackDown Tag Team Champions out. Jimmy and Jey answer the call, as they come to the ring. The Usos tell RK-Bro that they’re behind enemy lines, but they want to know RK-Bro’s answer to their challenge. Jimmy wants to remind them who they’re dealing with; he says they’re dealing with seven-time tag team champions. Jimmy tells them to go back to RAW and says RK-Bro is the “twos” and they’re the “ones.” Orton calls them “assholes” and “puppies” that “The Big Dog” let off the leash. He reminds them he’s been setting records for 20 years.

“The Viper” accepts The Usos’ challenge to the title unification match. The Usos leave the ring and sneak attack Riddle. The two teams then stare each other down.

Backstage, Sasha Banks and Naomi talk strategy for Naomi’s match against Ripley. Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley interrupt and confront the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions ahead of the match.

After a commercial, RK-Bro confronts Adam Pearce and pressure him to make the match official. Pearce says the bout is still under consideration, but he hopes to have an answer tonight. When Riddle says he wants to face Jimmy Uso tonight, Pearce grants the request.

Naomi (with Sasha Banks) vs. Rhea Ripley (with Liv Morgan)

Naomi and Ripley lock up and trade counters. Ripley drops Naomi with a shoulder tackle and drives her into the corner. Naomi uses her athleticism to evade Ripley, but “The Nightmare” slams her to the mat. A kick to the face sends Ripley to the outside. Ripley floors Naomi with a clothesline. Naomi drops Ripley with a scissors kick and hits a crossbody for a two count. Ripley gets a two count with a bridging Northern Lights suplex. Naomi counters the Riptide from the second rope, hut Ripley gets a two count with a missile dropkick. “The Glow” rocks Ripley with a kick, but “The Nightmare” hits the Riptide for the win.

Winner: Rhea Ripley

Morgan celebrates with Ripley backstage.

In an interview backstage, The Usos refuse to answer any questions; instead, they head right into Roman Reigns’ locker room.

A video package recaps Happy Corbin turning on Madcap Moss and their split last week.

Backstage Segment: Happy Corbin

In an interview, Corbin says Moss was not he was his associate; he says Moss was a lackey that dragged him down. Now, Corbin is reaching peak levels of happiness, but he’ll be even happier when Moss becomes the laughingstock of SmackDown.

In a backstage interview, Drew Gulak interviews Moss, who says his jokes were terrible because Corbin taught them to him. Moss says he’s happy that he’s moving on. He then basically says Los Lotharios can use their kiss cam to kiss his butt.

Madcap Moss vs. Humberto (with Angel)

An early distraction from Angel helps Humberto take control early on. Angel hits Moss with a cheapshot, which allows Humberto to maintain the advantage. Moss rallies and sends Humberto flying with a fallaway slam. He takes out Angel with a shoulder tackle and hits the Punchline for the win.

Winner: Madcap Moss

Angel gets upset with Humberto after the match and tells him, “You lost to a joke.”

Backstage, Charlotte Flair confronts Adam Pearce, but Gulak interrupts because he wants to know how he did as an interviewer. Flair, upset by his intrusion, tells him to interview her.
