Check out last week’s coverage here: WWE SmackDown Results (8/12/22)
The August 19 episode of WWE SmackDown is set to be a star-studded show.
The results are as follows:
In-Ring Segment: Ronda Rousey
Ronda Rousey comes to the ring, noting that she paid her fine and then some last week, so she’s ready to get reinstated. She calls out WWE official Adam Pearce and says she won’t leave until she gets what she wants. Pearce, accompanied by three security guards, says he can’t simply lift her suspension because that decision is above her pay grade. She tells him not to make her choose violence.
He sends the security officers to the ring, and she attacks them. With Pearce telling her not to, Rousey locks one of the guards in an arm bar. Pearce calls police officers to the ring, and Rousey confronts them. The officers arrest her and take her to the back, where a police car is waiting. They put her in the car and drive away, just as Roman Reigns and The Usos arrive.
