WWE SmackDown live results: Fastlane fallout

The road to WrestleMania continues as tonight's SmackDown takes place from the Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio.

Instead, he added Mustafa Ali to the title match and forced Kingston to face The Bar in a handicap match.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos defeated Shane McMahon & The Miz on Sunday night. After the match, Shane turned against Miz and beat him down in front of Miz's father. Tonight, Shane promises to explain his actions.

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


Shane McMahon made his way down to the ring to start SmackDown. The Best in the World trophy was set up in the ring. The fans booed McMahon and started a “You Suck” chant. The commentators noted that The Miz is at home recovering from the attack on Sunday.

McMahan called the announcer in the ring and made him introduce him as the best in the world. McMahon made him say it three times. He didn’t like the first two and bullied the announcer. McMahon’s tired of all the people that have tried to use him over the years. It used to always be about them but that stopped on Sunday when he beat down Miz.

McMahon said he’s the best in the world because he was born that way. From this point forward, he’s going to start doing it all for himself. He said it felt so good beating down Miz in front of his father. He pointed out that Miz works for him. McMahon then challenged Miz to a match at WrestleMania. He promised to continue the beat down on the grandest stage.

The Hardys, Aleister Black & Ricochet vs. The Bar, Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev (w/Lana) ended without a winner when The New Day Interfered

Black and Nakamura started the match trading strikes. Ricochet got the tag and hit a standing moonsault for a near fall. Cesaro distracted Jeff and Sheamus rocked him with a clothesline to take over. The heels isolated Jeff in their corner. Ricochet got the hot tag and nailed Rusev with a standing dropkick. He went from a springboard but Rusev nailed him and he fell to the floor.

Matt came in and ran wild on Cesaro. Sheamus hit a Brogue kick on Matt. Jeff hit the twist of fate on Cesaro but his teammates made the save.

All eight guys started brawling in the ring when The New Day ran out and cleared the ring off all teams. They beat down the heels around ringside and in the ring. Kofi Kingston then hit Rusev with trouble in paradise. The fans chanted “New Day Rocks” and “Kofi”.

In the back, The SmackDown tag team champions The Usos bragged about winning the titles at Fastlane. They’re not afraid of any team and wondered which team is next. 

Randy Orton made his way down to the ring. Orton noted AJ Styles calls this the house that Styles built. Orton pointed out that he’s been here since his career started but Styles only came a few years ago. Orton said that in 2005 he took on the Undertaker while Styles was in Florida getting a tan with Dixie Carter. Orton pointed out that he’s been a World Champion and that this is the house that Randy Orton built.

This brought out AJ Styles. Styles pointed out that for someone who looks down on the Indies he’s paid a lot of attention to his career. Styles said he’s proud to have come from the Indies.

Styles noted Orton wouldn’t make it on the Indies using a rip off diamond cutter. Styles said that his indie friends are all around. Styles pointed out that Orton’s father helped him get a job. He said Orton needed Triple H, Ric Flair, and Batista to help him as well.

Styles said he’s not going to be Orton’s next victim. Orton said he’s the landlord and rents do. Styles then challenged Orton to a match at WrestleMania. Orton left without answering. 

SmackDown Woman’s Champion Asuka defeated Sonya Deville (w/Mandy Rose) 

Asuka was firmly in control with a series of kicks. Deville rolled up Asuka for two-count. Deville briefly took over when Asuka missed a cross body. Asuka sent Deville to the floor. Rose checked on Deville but Asuka hit a sliding dropkick.

Deville was standing on the apron. Rose then pulled down on the ring apron skirt and Deville slipped. Asuka nailed her with a kick and applied the Asuka Lock for the win.

After the match, Rose and Deville teased having problems. Rose walked away as Deville watched on.

In the back, The IIconics challenged Women’s tag team champions, Sasha Banks & Bayley, to show up on SmackDown.

Becky Lynch made her way down to the ring. She came out on a crutch but threw it away. She said The Man is back and back in the main event of WrestleMania. She pointed out that she had to earn her way into the match twice. First by winning the Royal Rumble and then playing Ronda Rousey like a fiddle. She said it’s hard playing mind games with someone that doesn’t have a brain. She said she got in Rousey’s head and she played right into Lynch’s plan.  

Charlotte Flair interrupted and made her way down to the ring. Flair said it’s one thing to be hot for 6 months but she’s been hot for 4 years. She was chosen to get the job done. She said the fans and Rousey feel sorry for Lynch. Flair said Lynch got a handout. She’s going to make Lynch and Rousey relevant again when she makes them bow down to the Queen. Lynch said they never needed a Queen they need The Man.

In the back, Kayla Braxton was standing in front of The McMahon family office. WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and Rowan exited the office. Bryan said he gave Vince McMahon his honest feedback about Kofi Kingston. He then announced that Vince made Bryan & Rowan vs. Mustafa Ali & Kevin Owens for later tonight. 

Rey Mysterio & R-Truth (w/Carmella) defeated U.S. Champion Samoa Joe & Andrade (w/Zelina Vega)

The faces had the early advantage. Truth lifted up Mysterio who then hit a hurricanrana on Andrade. Mysterio set up for the 619 but Joe made the blind tag and took out Mysterio. The heels isolated Mysterio and cut him off from Truth. Andrade hit the Three Amigos on Mysterio but he countered with a Canadian Destroyer.

Vega tried to stop Mysterio from making the tag but Carmella pulled her out of the ring. Truth got the hot tag and ran wild. He hit the 5 Knuckle Shuffle on Joe. Mysterio then hit the 619 on Joe and Andrade. Mysterio had Andrade pinned but Joe made the save. Joe went for the uranage but Mysterio rolled him up for the win.

After the match, Joe went crazy and attacked both Truth and Andrade. 

WWE Champion Daniel Bryan & Rowan defeated Kevin Owens & Mustafa Ali

Bryan and Owens started the match with a good exchange. Owens hit a senton but Bryan tagged out. Ali attempted a cross body but Rowan caught him. Ali fought back but the heels took over. They isolated Ali on their side of the ring.

Bryan applied the LeBell Lock but Ali made the ropes. Bryan reminded the referee that he as until the count of 5. Ali tried to make the tag but Bryan stopped him. Ali hit the backstabber on Bryan for a near fall. Owens and Ali nailed Rowan with a double superkick. Owens attempted the cannonball off the apron but Rowan tripped him up and threw him into the barricade. Rowan made the blind tag and hit the Iron Claw on Ali for the win. 

As Bryan and Rowan made their way to the back, Vince McMahon’s music hit and he walked to the ring. 

McMahon said he’s here to give the people and Kofi Kingston what he wants. He’s going to give Kingston an opportunity at a WWE Championship match at WrestleMania. He then showed a recap of the angle from Fastlane. McMahon said that Kingston heard what he wanted to hear. He never said he was putting him in the WWE Championship match. He gave Kingston an opportunity but he failed. He said it was a teachable moment.

New Day’s music hit and they came down to the ring. They weren’t dancing and skipping. Xavier Woods and Big E did all the talking. Big E said they’re not in the mood to listen to McMahon. They pointed out everything they do for McMahon and they never complain or threaten to leave.

Big E said Kingston’s been in the WWE for 11 years and deserves more. McMahon said Kingston doesn’t deserve anything. Big E said this is bigger than the New Day and even bigger than McMahon’s ego. McMahon said that was impossible. Big E said the fans demand that Kingston get the opportunity to compete for the WWE Championship. The fans broke into a “Kofi” chant.

McMahon spoke to Kingston and said if he were worthy he would have already been in a championship match. He said Kingston’s a great example of the product. He said Kingston is going to be in the Hall of Fame one day but not as a solo. The only way he can get in is with The New Day. McMahon noted Daniel Bryan made a good point and called Kingston a B plus player. Woods and Big E got in McMahon’s face but Kingston stopped them.

Kingston talked about his 11 years in the WWE. He knows he’s worthy but McMahon doesn’t see it that way. He said he never complains about anything. He busts his ass but McMahon doesn’t give him the chance. He still doesn’t complain. He’s missed out on family events and has never been trick-or-treating with his kids.

He’s not going to complain. He wants McMahon to tell him what he has to do so he can do it to get the match. Randy Orton then made his way onto the stage. Samoa Joe, The Bar, and Rowan followed him out. McMahon said that if Kingston wants the title shot he has to defeat all of them in a gauntlet match next week. The heels ran into the ring and a brawl broke out. The New Day cleared the ring of all the heels to end the show.
