Can you spoiler that please.

On the Reigns thing: not sure why I thought he was in the match. Guess Smackdown has a chance then.

WWE SmackDown Tapings

Smackdown opened up with a video feature on AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal.

Shane McMahon came out and thanked everyone for watching the A show and promises Daniel Bryan will return next week. McMahon says Smackdown is ready for any retaliation. He brings out New Day, who say they didn't intend to cause the Shield to lose the Raw Tag titles but that's what happens when you are under siege. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn come out and knock Shane, saying Raw will beat them because of him. Shane tells them they have no loyalty and makes a match, Zayn vs. Kofi Kingston for right now.

Match 1: Kofi Kingston pinned Sami Zayn. Owens tried to get involved but was run off by New Day.

Renee Young interviewed Jinder Mahal. He promised to beat AJ tonight and then will take out Brock Lesnar at the PPV.

They aired a Bludgeon brothers vignette.

Match 2: Randy Orton pinned Rusev with an RKO Out OF NOWHERE! He joined Team SmackDown officially.

James Ellsworth was looking for Carmella but found Becky Lynch instead. He knocked her saying if RAW was there, she'd hide behind him because they are in Manchester, not Womanchester. Lynch told him he made a ballsy statement, but he doesn't have any.

Match 3: James Ellsworth vs. Becky. All the other SmackDown female stars were around ringside. Ellsworth tried to escape but was tossed back in by Charlotte. He begged off and tried to kiss Becky's hand but she maked him tap out to the Disarmher. Carmella was so disgusted after that she superkicked him. She then walked out alone.

They ran a promo announcing The Shield will return to RAW Monday.

Carmella spoke to Shane McMahon backstage when Natalya entered the room. She offered to face Alexa and work the Women's Elimination Tag Team Match. Shane announced Natalya vs. Charlotte for next week's SmackDown.

Match 4: Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin defeated The Usos by Count Out. They played up a potential injury to Jey.

They announced New Day vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, Sin Cara vs. Baron Corbin and Natalya vs. Charlotte.

Main Event: J Styles pinned Jinder Mahal with the Phenomenal Forearm to capture the WWE championship.

Makes sense, with The bar winning the Raw tag titles, virtually every Champion versus Champion match at Survivor Series was heel against heelbefore Styles won the title.

Genuinely shocked. Wish I'd stayed up for it now. I just hope it's not a case that it gets returned relatively quickly. It wouldn't make much sense for Styles to lose it for the rematch, he overcame the interference of Mahal's cronies to get it. It felt a pretty definitive win. Styles made Mahal look good though, something Orton nor Nakamura was able to do.

Well that explains the jinder mahal title loss. #planschange. I think it would have been better for cena to have been a surprise for the show either to interfere or added to the team on the show. It’s not like they rely on ppv sales anymore so what’s to lose? I believe the event is sold out so they don’t need to shift tickets either.

Jason Jordan really sticks out like a sore thumb in that match, hope he's allowed to put in a performance.

Has Jinder Mahal failed a Wellness Policy, or will he win it back again ahead of the Indian Tour. Just seems all very last minute.

Maybe Jason Jordon will cost Team RAW and turn on Kurt Angle.

I think they should take a step back and look at the Jinder situation and not mess around with their biggest title too much. The best thing to do is set him after the US title, he can be the big face beating the heel(Corbin) for the title on the India tour and when they return to normality after the tour they have the perfect foreigner heel character holding the US title and berating America every week.

Some sloppy editing in the opening segment of SmackDown. I'm guessing the crowd booed the lack of Daniel Bryan and then started chanting for him. Stands out like a sore thumb whatever the reason.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have both been sent home from the rest of the WWE European Tour. Shame for those in Nottingham, Italy and Germany.

Inappropriate actions deemed detrimental to WWE is one rumour; going into business for themselves during the SmackDown Tapings being another.

If it was during the show it didn't appear to make the air. Was nothing out of the ordinary in the spoilers either. They came out and cut a promo on Shane/New Day, before Zayn lost to Kofi. Maybe they shouted something to people in the crowd. Owens did appear to be saying something to the crowd in the aisleway but it wasn't audible.

I think Jinder is getting that belt back soon, and they just didn't want him to lose to Brock. Imagine if Wrestlemania was...

Lesnar vs Reigns
Cena vs Jinder

:dread:

I'll expect Jinder to attack AJ at SS seeing as there's not much else for him to do.

They have 3 SmackDown's after SS for Jinder to reclaim the title before their tour of India begins on the 8th. The venue is the Indira Gandhi Stadium, which should make for an impressive sight filled up. Would have made for another unique Network special too but oh well.

The final PPV of 2017 on the 17th is also a SmackDown show.

Yeah I find it really odd that they aren’t putting certain shows on the network. Seems very odd. I can’t imagine putting the india show on the network would damage attendance at the stadium.

Pro Wrestling Sheet wrote:Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn went against a creative directive given to them before SmackDown last night and we’re told it contributed to them being sent home.

Multiple sources tell us Sami and Kevin were supposed to “feed” for New Day following Zayn vs. Kofi Kingston yesterday, but for some reason they didn’t follow directions and left the ring.

The PWTorch glossary of insider wrestling terms defines “feeding” as: “The heel’s role during a babyface comeback where he runs at the babyface only to be repeatedly fended off, with the hope that the series of bumps by the heel will generate positive fan heat for the babyface.”

Owens hit the ring as soon as the match ended and attacked Kofi as planned. However, he and Sami quickly bailed from the ring. New Day then stood waiting, same for the sound crew who didn’t play anyone’s music, and the segment ended awkwardly when the two wrestlers seemingly went off script by not taking their planned beating afterward.

Since publishing the story on Owens/Zayn being sent home, multiple sources reached out saying the duo have been slightly difficult to work with lately and seem unhappy backstage.

It’s worth noting that they were both close with recently fired writer Jimmy Jacobs and Neville (who hasn’t been heard from since walking out).

They've had a number of scoops that have turned out to be true recently sonmaybe there's something in this.

Punishing the fans more than anything though.
