The Dirt Sheet 

John Morrison and The Miz were already in the ring to start SmackDown. Morrison informed everyone that they're here to give the inside story. The discussed several of the feuds going on including, Bayley & Sasha Banks, Roman Reigns & Jey Uso, and Sami Zayn's claim that he's the real Intercontinental Champion.

They turned their attention to Otis and Mandy Rose. They showed a clip from Talking Smack of The Miz and Morrison announcing that Rose is now on Raw. The Miz claimed that now Otis can focus on the Money In The Bank.

Miz promised that Otis would get over it because, according to his friends from Raw, Rose already is over it. He pointed out that Dolph Ziggler is on Raw. Morrison noted they dated, but Miz said they Netflix and chilled. 

Otis's music hit, and he ran down to the ring. He ran wild on the heels. Miz tried to escape, but Tucker stopped him. Otis hit the caterpillar on Miz and followed up with the Vader Bomb.

Otis ran back in the ring and tore off Miz's suit and left him in his tighty whities. This was a fine segment. Miz and Morrison were good in their roles, and at least they explained Mandy Rose's move to Raw. 

Back from the break, Morrison and Miz were in the back. Morrison thinks Miz's plan is backfiring. He said Otis is like the Incredible Hulk. He doesn't like him when he's mad. That was a funny line. Kayla Braxton approached and asked if Miz regrets aggravating Otis. 

Miz got a phone call and asked if that was enough. He gave Morrison and thumbs up. They smiled and walked off. 

Earlier today, The Lucha House Party was in the back. Kalisto and Lince Dorado argued over helping Gran Metalik get ready for his match later.

Cesaro (w/Shinsuke Nakamura) defeated Gran Metalik (Kalisto & Lince Dorado) 

They announced SmackDown Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura defend against The Lucha House Party at Clash Of Champions. 

This was a good match while it lasted. Metalik had a brief advantage, but Kalisto and Dorado gave him different advice, and Cesaro took over. Metalik fought back and hit a hurricanrana off the second turnbuckle. Cesaro slowed the pace down and worked over Metalik's arm.  

Metalik ended up on the apron. Kalisto and Dorado jumped up on the apron as well to argue. 

The referee yelled at them and ordered them to the back.  

Cesaro attacked Metallik from behind. Metalik recovered and hit a huge dive to the floor. 

Back from the break, Cesaro was firmly in control. He locked on a chin lock to slow the pace down. Michael Cole explained that Nakamura interfered during the break to help Cesaro regain control of the match. 

They fought on the top rope. Metalik then hit an awesome looking hurricanrana off the top. He attempted a moonsault, but Cesaro got his feet up.

Cesaro hit a running uppercut in the corner and followed up with the neutralizer for the win. 

In the back, Kayla Braxton interviewed Jey Uso. They recapped the angle from last week when Reigns stole the pin the in main event.

Uso noted that Paul Heyman told him that last week was a miscommunication. He said that tonight Reigns promised to have his back. Uso vowed to win the Universal title at Clash of Champions, but the Samoan Street Fight is his main focus tonight. 

Matt Riddle hosted a segment called Know Your Bro. He explained the reason he loves the word, bro. Riddle pointed out that bro can convey different emotions, including happy, angry, sad, and afraid. 

A Moment Of Bliss 

They recapped Alexa Bliss using The Fiend's Sister Abigal on Nikki Cross last week and walking away from the four-way.

Alexa Bliss didn't waste time and introduced her guest Nikki Cross. Bliss pointed out that Cross is usually in her co-host chair. Bliss noted that Bayley beat Cross all summer. Cross explained that Bayley no longer as Sasha Banks looking over her. Cross then promised to win the SmackDown Woman's Championship.

Cross then changed the subject. She pointed out that Bliss hit her with Sister Abigal. Bliss began to talk and said she couldn't explain it. Lacey Evans' music hit. She mocked Bliss and Cross.

Evans claimed that because Bliss walked away from the four-way last week, it threw her off her game. She said that's the only reason Cross won the four-way. That seems like an odd explanation for losing. 

Evans told Cross she could never beat Bayley. Cross then blew her nose on Evans' handkerchief. This was a fine segment. 

Nikki Cross defeated Lacey Evans 

Alexa Bliss joined Michael Cole and Corey Graves on commentary.

Michael Cole asked Alexa Bliss about last week and her attack on Cross. Bliss claimed she was having an off day.

This was an okay match. Cross and Evans worked a slow pace, and it dragged. 

Before the match, Evans put on hand sanitizer.

Evans had the early advantage. Cross briefly fought back, but Evans regained control and worked over the arm. She slowed the pace down with a chin lock but went back to the arm. 

Evans hit a standing moonsaul for a close near fall. She then grabbed the hand sanitizer and sprayed it on Cross's face. Cole couldn't understand how that wasn't a disqualification. 

Cross fired up and made a comeback. She hit a tornado DDT and the neck breaker for the win. 

After the match, Evans yelled at Bliss and screamed The Fiend's name. Bliss went into a trance again and hit Sister Abigal on Evans. She then walked off in a daze. 

They showed Sasha Banks getting ready for her live interview. 

Paul Heyman narrated a video on Roman Reigns and Jey Uso. He talked about the various wrestling families, including The Hennings, Harts, Ortons, and more.

Heyman's always been very close to the Anoa'i family. Heyman discussed the members of the family, including the Wild Samoans, Yokozuna, The Rock, Umaga, and Rikishi. 

The video then focused on the relationship between Reigns and Jey Uso. Of course, nobody is as dominant as the tribal chief Roman Regions. This was an excellent video package. 

Sasha Banks Interview

Sasha Banks was backstage in the Performance Center. She wore a neck brace due to her injuries. 

They recapped Bayley attacking Sasha Banks two weeks ago. Banks became emotional as she discussed her friendship with Bayley. She noted Bayley claimed she just used her, and she's useless. Banks talked about how they started together in the Performance Center and promised to take over the company. 

Banks called Bayley an idiot and said she's nothing without her. She knows Bayley is watching this interview. Banks promised to take away Bayley's SmackDown Woman's Championship because that's the only thing she cares about.

Suddenly, Bayley hit Banks from behind with a chair. She beat Banks down and placed her head in the chair, but officials broke it up before she could do any more damage. This was a good promo from Banks. 

AJ Styles defeated Sami Zayn 

Styles and Zayn had a good TV match. 

Zayn came out with his Intercontinental Championship. He was furious that the announcer didn't introduce him as the I.C. champion. Styles jumped Zayn from behind to start the match.

Michael Cole claimed that Zayn gave up the title because he decided to take a hiatus. Later, he noted that Zayn hasn't explained why he took off for six months.

Back from the break, Zayn was firmly in control. He attempted a superplex, but Styles slipped out and dropped him on the ring post. Styles went for the phenomenal forearm, but Zayn rolled out of the way. He then hit a stun gun on Styles. 

Styles fought back and hit a neck breaker for a near fall. They traded hard shots in the middle of the ring. Zayn rocked Styles with a boot to the face, but Styles responded with the Pele kick. 

Zayn then hit the blue thunder bomb for a very close near fall. Zayn hit the turnbuckle exploder and set up for the helluva kick, but Styles avoided. Zayn attempted to roll up Styles, but the referee caught him holding the tights. 

Styles then rolled up Zayn for the win. Zayn claimed that Styles held onto the tights, but the referee denied the claim. 

Jeff Hardy then ran down to ringside. He attacked both Styles and Zayn. He pulled out a ladder from underneath the ring and attacked Styles and Zayn with it. Hardy hit the twist of fate and started climbing the ladder, but Zayn rolled out of the ring. 

Hardy was furious that Zayn called him a fraud. He wants to face both Zayn and Styles at Clash of Champions in a triple threat ladder match. 

In the locker room, Otis and Tucker were hanging out when Otis got served with a lawsuit. After the break, Tucker explained that Miz and Morrison filed the lawsuit because he attacked them, Money in the Bank negligence, and that Dirt Sheet is a news program and therefore they have freedom of speech. 

They're trying to get Otis to forfeit the MITB briefcase. Tucker told Otis he needs to find a lawyer. Otis noted they're in trouble, but Tucker pointed out that Otis is the only one in trouble. 

In the back, Sheamus and King Corbin discussed their upcoming match. A security guard approached, and Sheamus was happy to see him. Sheamus said it was genius how he tricked Big E to go to the parking lot a few weeks ago. 

The security guard was flattered. He told Sheamus that his car is getting towed. Sheamus ran to his vehicle, but Big E was waiting for him. Sheamus ran off, so Big E beat down the security guard. He gave him a belly-to-belly suplex on the car windshield. 

Adam Pearce ran out and forced Big E to leave. 

They showed the mysterious blonde woman getting ready. 

Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman made their way to the ring. Heyman went to speak but Reigns reached out his hand for the microphone. He came out first because he doesn't want there to be any misunderstanding. This is his yard and his island. 

Samoan Street Fight: Universal Champion Roman Reigns (w/Paul Heyman) & Jey Uso defeated Sheamus & King Corbin 

This was a good match with lots of fast-paced, hard-hitting action.

The faces had the early advantage and cleared the ring. All four competitors fought around ringside. Uso leaped off the barricade onto Corbin, and Reigns tossed Sheamus over the barricade. Corbin then hit the deep six on Uso on the floor. 

Reigns beat down Corbin with a chair in the ring. He then went to pull out a table, but Sheamus cut him off. The heels worked together and tossed Reigns over the announce table.

The heels brought the table in the ring and worked over Uso. Uso tried fighting back, but the heels regained control. They then gave Uso a double powerbomb through the table for a near fall.
