Spoilers: 12/25/18 Smackdown Live
WWE taped the 12/25 episode of SmackDown Live tonight in Fresno, CA. Below are the spoiler results …
– The stage was dressed up for Christmas in a big way for the Christmas Day show.
– SAnitY & The Bar vs Usos & Gallows and Anderson with The New Day on commentary.
– Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows hit the Magic Killer on Cesaro for the win
– R-Truth and Carmella came out to the ring dressed as Santa & Mrs. Claus then Daniel Bryan came out to yell at them for being a part of the culture that’s ruining the planet. Daniel called R-Truth fickle for believing in Santa Claus too.
– Mustafa Ali vs Andrade Cien Almas is next on the show. Ali won with the 054.
– The ring gets done-up in a red carpet for the Miz TV segment complete with the Best In The World Trophy. Then Miz comes out to have his segment with Shane McMahon. The BITW trophy had a Santa hat on it too so that was a nice touch.
The Miz still wanted to be Shane McMahon’s tag team partner and he left it up to the WWE Universe who gave him an overwhelmingly positive response. Shane took a second and said, “You better not screw me or there will be major consequences… okay, let’s try this.” Then they hugged and The Miz was so happy. The place popped big for this moment.
– Third Match: Samoa Joe vs Jeff Hardy was next and that seemed to be the main event of the evening. Jeff Hardy ended up getting DQ’ed and those are never fun. Then after the match, Samoa Joe choked Jeff out at ringside with the Coquina Clutch.
– Fourth Match: Shinsuke Nakamura vs Rusev for the US Title is next. After a pretty good match that got the Fresno crowd very hot, Rusev was able to pull off a Machka Kick and score the pinfall to win the WWE United States Title.
