WWE SMACKDOWN SPOILERS FOR 05/12/2016
-Dean Ambrose opened the show by cutting a promo against Chris Jericho, claiming they were now even: Jericho destroyed Ambrose’s plant (Mitch), so he destroyed Jericho’s expensive jacket. However, Ambrose added that the jacket wouldn’t be all he’d take from Jericho. He would take away everything, including his ego. Jericho’s pyro went off, and the arena went dark. When the lights came back on, Jericho was in the middle of the ring, standing over a beaten Ambrose. Jericho then put Ambrose in a straitjacket, leaving him practically defenseless as Jericho beat on him. With Ambrose laid out, Jericho told the crowd this was his gift to them.
-Rusev (with Lana) defeated Sin Cara (with Kalisto) by submission to The Accolade.
-Renee Young interviewed Emma to ask her about Dana Brooke. Dana cut Renee off and talked about her background, noting she’s a fitness champion. She put down Becky Lynch in the interview as well.
-Dana Brooke (with Emma) defeated Becky Lynch.
-Backstage, A.J. Styles told Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows to finish The Usos tonight.
-The New Day cut a promo on the Vaudevillains for interfering on Monday Night Raw. This brought them out for a rebuttal. The Vaudevillains vowed to win the tag team championship at Extreme Rules. This led to a match…
-Aiden English defeated Kofi Kingston.
-Backstage, Roman Reigns told The Usos he has their back if A.J. Styles tries to interfere.
-The Usos defeated Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows via DQ when Gallows used a steel chair.
-A “Life Lessons with Coach Backlund” segment aired. Backlund wanted Darren Young to use his watch, calendar, mail, and desktop as a way of learning how to better manage his time. Young said he had all those things on his smartphone. This left Backlund flustered.
-The Gorgeous Truth defeated GoldDango. After the match, Tyler Breeze and Fandango turned on their respective partners, R-Truth and Goldust.
-We get a promo hyping the debut of the repackaged Primo & Epico. Redubbed “The Shining Stars”, they will make their debut on RAW this coming Monday. After the promo, we had a backstage segment in which Renee interviewed Women’s champion Charlotte with Ric Flair. Charlotte claimed what happened on Monday was unfair, and rants about the McMahons mistreating her. Ric sticks up for Charlotte by adding that he taught her everything she knows. Charlotte said what happened on Monday was a travesty, and how dare the McMahons treat him that way. Ric reminded Renee he is the dirtiest player in the game, and he taught Charlotte everything she knew.
-In the main event, Kevin Owens & The Miz (with Maryse) defeated Cesaro & Sami Zayn after Owens scored the pin on Cesaro with a frog splash.
