**********

Michael Cole and Corey Graves started SmackDown by running down the line up for tonight. 

The KO Show With Daniel Bryan 

Owens and Bryan were great in this segment. 

Kevin Owens was already in the ring. He noted the dust settled, and now everyone is where they're supposed to be. Owens is happy to be on SmackDown and is excited for the first KO Show on the blue brand. 

Owens wasted no time and introduced his guest Daniel Bryan. Owens praised Bryan and called him the leader of the Yes Movement. Bryan is excited to be on The KO Show and praised the set. They're super friendly with each other. 

Owens pointed out that Bryan included his name on the list of people he wants to face. Bryan explained his vision for the future of SmackDown. He believes they have the best fresh talent, and people like Big E and Jey Uso are stepping up.

Bryan also has a vision for the Intercontinental Championship. He feels that the I.C. title should be defended every single week. Owens was flattered that Bryan thinks he should take the role. Bryan was confused and almost said he's not talking about him. Owens cut him off and noted he's never been a tag team champion. Bryan stated that Owens turns on a lot of people. They both agreed. That was funny. 

Owens wants to form a team with Bryan named Team Hell KO. Bryan pointed out that would make him Kane's partner. Owens didn't get it at first but agreed. That was funny too. Regardless, Owens thinks they'll make a great team.

Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode interrupted and made their way to the ring. Ziggler noted they're the hottest new thing on SmackDown. They were upset that they started the party without them. 

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits then made their way to the ring as well. They pointed out they're the tag team champions and are here to start the party. 

Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura then interrupted. They pointed out that they lost the titles and Street Profits had the titles handed to them. 

Bryan interjected and told Owens that this is their chance to prove they'd make a great team. A brawl broke out between all four teams. The bell started ringing as officials jumped in the ring. 

Bryan and Owens were awesome in this segment. They were both hilarious. They obviously teased forming a team but also seemed to tease a possible feud in the future. By the end, it turned into a typical segment with all the teams coming out.

Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan & The Street Profits defeated Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode, Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura

This was a really good eight-man tag match. 

Graves pointed out that Bryan was in his street clothes, so the match started without him because he had to change. That was a nice touch. Bryan joined the match after a few minutes. 

Back from the break, and the heels were firmly in control. The faces had a brief advantage, but the heels took back over. They isolated Montez Ford on their side of the ring and cut him off from his partners. 

Bryan got the tag and ran wild. He hit a huge suicide dive on Cesaro. Bryan injured his knee when he ran up the corner into a back flip. The referee checked on Bryan, who said he could continue. Cesaro rocked Bryan with an uppercut and sent him to the floor. 

Owens checked on Bryan but had to go back to his corner. Cesaro used half-crab on the floor.

Back from the break, the heels were firmly in control as they worked over Bryan's injured leg. They isolated Bryan on their side of the ring and cut him off from his corner. Bryan fought back and slingshotted Ziggler into the corner. 

Bryan attempted to make the tag, but Roode cut him off. Roode took a cheap shot at Dawkins and continue to beat down Bryan. They fought on the top turnbuckle, but Bryan pushed Roode off. Bryan then hit a huge missile dropkick. Dawkins got a hot tag and ran wild. He hit a massive bulldog for a close near fall.

Cesaro fought back and hit a huge spinebuster for a close near fall. 

A massive brawl broke out between all eight guys again. Owens rocked Roode with a stunner, which sent him to the floor.

Bryan hit a dive off the apron onto the heels at ringside. The finish came when Dawkins hit a spine buster on Cesaro, and Ford hit the frog splash for the win. 

Michael Cole and Corey Graves briefly discussed The Miz and John Morrison trying to get the Money In the Briefcase from Otis. 

Law & Otis 

They spoofed the opening of Law & Order, which was funny.

Ron Simmons is the bailiff and introduced the judge JBL. JBL ran down the charges, including emotional distress. Miz's lawyer tried to speak, but Miz cut her off. He's disgusted that Otis has the MITB briefcase and believes somebody like him should have it. 

Otis pointed out that he should have the briefcase because he won Money In The Bank. Miz's lawyer noted he has a point, so Miz fired her. 

Bianca Belair made her way to the ring for a match. 

In the back, Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens, and The Street Profits were celebrating their win. Bryan yelled that he wants the smoke too. He stuck his fists out and yelled, "fist me guys" Owens and the Street Profits were shocked. That was funny. 

Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn approached Bryan as the others walked off. Zayn was upset that Bryan called him out before. Bryan tried saying he didn't call him out, but Zayn didn't care. Zayn has no plans to defend the title every week and is going to do things his way.

They announced Seth Rollins against Murphy for later tonight. 

Bianca Belair defeated Zelina Vega 

Belair and Vega had a good match. They worked hard, but it was mostly a showcase for Belair. She had a good debut with some impressive moments. 

Vega had the early advantage, but Belair took over. She did a flip and ended up on her feet and took out Vega.

Vega tried to get away, but Belair dragged her back into the ring. Vega rocked Belair with a kick to the head. Belair quickly regained control. In an impressive spot, she picked up Vega from the met into a press slam and dropped her on the turnbuckle. Belair then hit the KOD for the win.

They aired a video looking at Lars Sullivan. 

Lars Sullivan defeated Shorty G

Kayla Braxton interviewed Shorty G before the match in the ring. She asked him why he wants to face Sullivan. He pointed out that he can't get drafted to Raw or SmackDown. He's about to prove how good he is and called out Sullivan. 

This was a total squash match with Sullivan dominating the majority of it. 

Shorty G attempted a crossbody off the middle turnbuckle, but Sullivan caught him and hit a fallaway slam. Sullivan then launched Shorty G in the air and slammed him on the mat. Shorty G fought back and poked Sullivan in the eyes. Shorty G hit a rolling Liger kick in the corner. He attempted a second Liger kick, but Sullivan moved. 

Sullivan tossed Shorty G across the ring and hit a vicious clothesline. He then hit the Freak Accident for the win. 

After the match, Braxton tried to interview Shorty G again. She asked him what's next, and he quit. 

Michael Cole barely acknowledged that Shorty G just quit. 

In the back, Alyse Ashton felt bad for Shorty G. She brought in her guest Seth Rollins. Rollins noted he's a leader, but Murphy is a follower. Tonight, Rollins is going to define Murphy's role. 

Backstage, they showed Roman Reigns sitting at a table in his locker room. Paul Heyman tried to say something to him, but Reigns doesn't want to be bothered. 

Shorty G was in the trainer's room getting checked on. Adam Pearce walked in and wanted to know if he heard him right that he quit. Shorty G noted he does quit. He quits being Shorty G. He's tired of being the smiling face above a public service announcement. He mocked the Shorty G character and said he couldn't get anything done. 

However, there is an Olympian and State Champion that can get things done. His name is Gable. Chad Gable. Gable was great in this segment. Hopefully, this goes somewhere. 

Bayley Promo

This was a really good segment. Bayley and Banks were both excellent in their roles.

Bayley was already in the ring. She noted everyone wants to know why she didn't sign the contract last week. She refused to sign the contract because Banks can't tell her what to do. 

Sasha Banks made her way to the ring with the contract in her hand. Bayley still refused to sign it. She dropped the title when she tried to hit Banks with a chair. 

Banks ducked the chair shot and picked up the title. Bayley wanted the title back, but Banks refused unless she signs the contract. They battled over the belt. Banks rocked Bayley with a knee and put Bayley's head in the chair. 

She threatened to stomp on the chair unless Bayley signs the contract. Bayley fought back, but Banks grabbed her while still in the chair. Banks forced Bayley to sign the contract.

Law & Otis 

These segments were well done and had funny moments. 

Back in the courtroom, Miz cross-examined his first witness John Morrison. Morrison talked about Otis assaulting him.

Rey Mysterio took the stand next. He noted that he was in the MITB match, and Otis won the match. He deserves to cash-in whenever he wants. 

Asuka took the stand next and screamed in Japanese. JBL turned to the courtroom stenographer, Teddy Long, and asked if he got that. 

Tucker was on the stand next. He said that Miz sending Mandy Rose to Raw was wrong. Miz asked JBL if he could treat the witness as hostile. JBL responded that it's about time things get hostile. 

Tucker noted that since Rose left, all Otis cares about is beating up Miz. He feels like beating up Miz right now. They all started arguing with each other. JBL tried to get control, but nobody would listen. Simmons then yelled at everyone to shut up.

JBL's going to be back with his decision. 

Back from the break, JBL returned. He noted that Miz's charges of causing emotional distress and assault are part of being a WWE Superstar. He also pointed out that Otis has a full year to cash-in the MITB contract. It's stated in the contract of the match. 

JBL ruled in Otis' favor, but Miz forgot to introduce a key piece of evidence. Miz gave JBL a briefcase with money. JBL literally heard dollar signs and ruled in Miz's favor instead. He ordered Otis to defend the MITB contract at Hell in a Cell against The Miz. 

Simmons was disappointed and walked to the center of the room. He looked around and yelled, Damn!

They recapped the Seth Rollins and Murphy feud. 

Seth Rollins defeated Murphy 

This was a great match. Rollins and Murphy both worked hard and told a good story. 

They showed Aalyah Mysterio watching the match backstage. 

They started with some back and forth mat wrestling. Rollins took Murphy down with a side headlock to gain control. Murphy fought back and sent Rollins to the floor.

Murphy teased a dive, but Rollins tried to avoid it. Murphy changed course and slid over Rollins. He then gave Rollins a huge back body drop onto the announce table. 

Back from the break, Murphy attempted a tornado DDT, but Rollins put him on the apron. Murphy tried to climb the corner, but Rollins cut him off. 

In the back, Rey and Dominik Mysterio approached Aalyah. They tried to get her to stop watching and to leave, but she refused. 

Rollins slowed the pace down, but Murphy fought back and hit a dropkick off the middle turnbuckle. Murphy ran wild and sent Rollins to the floor. He then hit a huge senton to the floor but barely hit Rollins. 

Murphy then hit a Meteora, but he hurt his shoulder when he landed on it awkwardly. He rolled to the floor and tried to pop his shoulder back in. Rollins took advantage and hit a suicide dive. He followed up with a springboard knee for a close near fall.

Rollins continued to work over Murphy's arm. They went back to The Mysterio family backstage. They did a close-up of Aalyah, who was devastated that Murphy injured his shoulder, and Rollins is working it over. 

Back from the break, Murphy hit a superkick in the corner and attempted a running powerbomb, but his shoulder gave out. Rollins recovered and hit a buckle bomb in the corner. Rollins attempted the curb stomp, but Murphy countered with a dropkick. 

Murphy's shoulder gave out again, and Rollins regained control. Rollins screamed in Muphy's face. Murphy heard enough and rocked Rollins.

Murphy rolled up Rollins for a near fall. Rollins fought back and hit a broken arrow for a very close near fall. Rollins attempted the stomp again, but Murphy avoided. Murphy lifted Rollins, but his shoulder gave out again. Rollins slammed Murphy down by the shoulder and hit the curb stomp for the win. 

After the match, Rollins grabbed a kendo stick from under the ring.

In the back, Aalyah begged Rey and Dominik to help Murphy, but they both refused. Rey said this isn't their business, and they need to stay out of it. She decided to help Murphy since they won't. 

In the ring, Rollins teased hitting Murphy when Aalyah came out. She entered the ring and tried to protect Murphy. Rollins stood over her. Dominik ran out, so Rollins left the ring. 

Dominik kept asking Aalyah why she came to the ring. Rollins jumped Dominik from behind until Rey made the save. They were both upset with Aalyah for getting involved and said it's none of their business. Dominik kept saying that she shouldn't be there. 

Aalyah walked away and checked on Murphy. Rey and Dominik stopped arguing and stared at Murphy and Aalyah. The angle after the match was well done as well. 

A backstage worker knocked on Roman Reigns' locker room door. Paul Heyman answered and was annoyed. He said Reigns would go to the ring when he's ready. 

They recapped the angle between Reigns and Jey Uso from last week. 

Tribal Consequences 

This was another great segment and angle. Jey Uso and Roman Reigns were both excellent in their roles. 

Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman made their way down to the ring. 

Reigns was about to speak when Jey Uso interrupted on the big screen wearing a mask. He was sitting in Reign's locker room at his table. Uso noted the room is excellent and thought they use to be cousins. He mocked Reigns but told him not to ask him. He should ask his brother. 

Uso took off his mask to reveal that it's actually Jimmy Uso.

Jey Uso appeared behind Reigns in the ring and attacked him. Jey ran wild and grabbed a chair. Reigns rocked Jey with a boot to the face. Jey recovered and rocked Reigns with a superkick and hit the splash off the top. 

Jey and Jimmy celebrated on the top of the ramp. Reigns was in pain as he grabbed the mic and spoke. He noted if he quits, he won't be the champion, the face of the WWE, or the head of the table, but he'll be good. 

Reigns said that when he makes Jey quit, it's all over for him. He noted that Jey and Jimmy would be out of the family. Not only will they be out, but so will their wives and children. Reigns stated those are the consequences of the Hell in a Cell match on Sunday.

Reigns stood in the ring, and the cell was lowered. Jey walked back to the ring and climbed up the side of the cage. 

Michael Cole and Cory Graves stressed that if Jey says I quit, then the Usos are out of the dynasty.
