WWE SmackDown live results: Fallout from TLC


Friday Night SmackDown takes place from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York tonight, and features the fallout from TLC.

Daniel Bryan returned at TLC with a new look and attacked Universal Champion Bray Wyatt. It had been two weeks since Bryan last appeared after Wyatt pulled him into a hole in the ring and proceeded to pull out clumps of Bryan’s hair. Bryan should appear tonight.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day will face Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro in a non-title match. The New Day successfully retained the titles against The Revival in a ladder match at Sunday's pay-per-view.

A non-title match between SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley and Dana Brooke is also set. Last week, Elias sang a song mocking Bayley and Sasha Banks. Brooke thought the song was hilarious, which offended Bayley. Later, Bayley defeated Brooke, but Brooke went to social media to request a rematch.

Our live coverage begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time.


They recapped Daniel Bryan making his return at TLC and attacking Universal Champion Bray Wyatt. 

SmackDown starts with Daniel Bryan making his way to the ring. The fans broke into a massive "Daniel Bryan" chant.

He noted for the last few weeks people asked him where he's been. He can't remember and isn't sure.

He remembers "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt pulling out his hair and beard. When Bryan came to, he realized he got rid of the brand.

Bryan's daughter didn't recognize him without his long hair and beard. That's because his daughter knows Daniel Bryan, the brand. However, Bryan recognized the person in the mirror and recounted his achievements. 

Bryan noted Wyatt changes the people he faces, but Bryan's going to change him. He called out Wyatt, but The Miz came out instead. 

The Miz pointed out that Wyatt attacked his family. Bryan doesn't understand Wyatt. Miz noted Wyatt has nothing but the Universal Championship. He promised to beat Wyatt for the title. 

King Corbin came out and mocked Miz and Bryan. He called Bryan a failure and baby Yoda. Corbin then ran down all of his accomplishments, including defeating Roman Reigns at TLC. 

Corbin doesn't care about Miz and Bryan's issues with Wyatt. He only cares about the Universal Championship and demands a title shot. He said Miz and Bryan failed as WWE Superstars and fathers. 

Miz and Bryan walked towards Corbin, but Dolph Ziggler jumped them from behind. Ziggler and Corbin beat down the faces, including hitting a superkick and end of days.

The Miz & Daniel Bryan vs. King Corbin & Dolph Ziggler in a tag team match is official for later tonight. 

Miracle On 34th Street Fight: Heavy Machinery defeated The Revival 

The stage and ringside area had Christmas trees, presents, cookies, and other decorations. 

Cathy Kelly interviewed Heavy Machinery behind the curtain. They were both wearing Santa hats.

Mandy Rose approached and gave Otis a ham because she got him in Secret Santa. She then gave him a kiss, which got a big pop. Otis was beyond happy to get the ham and a kiss from Rose. 

Otis gave the ham to Corey Graves to watch during the match. 

The faces had an early advantage, but The Revival took over. Scott Dawson sent Tucker into the ring steps. The Revival then dropped Tucker on the announce table.

The Revival brought in a tree, but Wilder missed a splash and went into the tree. 

The Revival threw Tucker into the announce table, and the ham flew off. Graves and Michael Cole made a massive deal out of the ham falling. 

Otis snapped because of the ham falling on the ground. He ran wild on the heels and brought in a bag of legos. He spread them all over the ring. 

Otis slammed Dawson onto the legos, which stuck to his back. He then gave Revival an electric chair and fallaway slam at the same time. 

Otis hit the caterpillar followed up by the compacter for the win. 

In the back, Lacey Evans and her daughter approached Dana Brooke, Alexa Bliss, and Nikki Cross.

In the ring, The Revival complained about the gimmick matches and the joke being on them. They wondered what happened to tag team wrestling. 

Elias came out and sang a song about The Revival. He mocked them and told them to go away. 

In the back, Sami Zayn approached Braun Strowman. Zayn got Strowman in Secret Santa and wants to know what he wants. Strowman was upset and pointed out that Zayn mocked the holidays for the last few weeks. Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro approached. 

Strowman asked for a shot at Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and the title. Zayn acted like he was disappointed that they couldn't do the match tonight because they're taking on the New Day. 

Carmella defeated Sonya Deville 

Deville nailed Carmella with knees and sliding knee for a near fall. Carmella fought back and caught Deville with an elbow, a boot, and a flying clothesline.

SmackDown Woman's Champion Bayley (w/Sasha Banks) defeated Dana Brooke in a Non-title match

Evans recovered, and the heels ran off. 

Daniel Bryan & The Miz defeated King Corbin & Dolph Ziggler
