WWE SmackDown Results: Cody Rhodes Receives Backlash From WWE

Blockbuster action filled this week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown, which aired live from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. The company’s forthcoming premium live event, WWE Backlash, which is set to take place in France next week, was fully updated during the live event. AJ Styles and LA Knight squared off to win a chance to challenge Cody Rhodes for the WWE Universal Championship at the start of the event. The main event, in which Bayley challenged Naomi for the WWE Women’s Championship, was followed by a battle between the top contenders for the tag team titles.

AJ Styles rises to the top of the Universal Championship contender rankings.
The action kicked off on SmackDown with a match between the two winners of the WWE Undisputed Championship Number One Contender’s Tournament, “Phenomenal” AJ Styles and LA Knight. Knight had Styles in a headlock to start the bout, but things soon turned around. Styles gave the Pele kick in retaliation, and then he secured his championship chance by finishing the contest with the Phenomenal Forearm from the top rope.

New tag team championships are awarded to A-Town Down.
Nick Aldis, the general manager of WWE SmackDown, entered the ring carrying a secret from the podium. After that, he invited Triple H, who gave a speech to the assembly and unveiled the new tag team titles that A-Town Down Under had won. Grayson left The Game hanging after the revelation in order to shake Austin’s hand. Aldis expressed disapproval of this action, threatening to make “A-Town Clown Under” vanish if they attempted any more naughty behavior.

When Bayley beat IYO SKY, her former partner in the Damage CTRL, to win the WWE Women’s Championship, it was her opportunity to shine at WrestleMania 40. In the most recent SmackDown program, she defended the same title against Naomi. Before Naomi landed the rear view for a near-pinfall, the match witnessed some furious action. Tiffany Straton assaulted Bayley when she quickly countered with the Bayley-to-Belly on the announcers’ table. She gave the winner a cheap elbow shot that resulted in his disqualification.
