WWE Smackdown Results - May 29, 2018

Tonight’s WWE SmackDown opens live from the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina as Tom Phillips welcomes us. He’s joined by Corey Graves and Byron Saxton. They hype tonight’s show – The Miz and The Bar vs. The New Day, Lana vs. Naomi in a Dance-Off, Samoa Joe vs. Daniel Bryan in the final Money In the Bank qualifying match.

– We go right to the ring and out comes Samoa Joe.

Joe enters the ring and he sets up the ladder in the center of the ring. Joe climbs the ladder and he takes the briefcase.

Joe says it is said in biblical texts that the ladder is the connection between the Earth and the heavens. It is said when Jacob looked upon his ladder, angels descended and gave him salvation. Joe says his version is very different. There is no salvation. There are no smiling angels. After Money in the Bank, he will be smiling like he is now. Joe says he will have secured his championship opportunity and secured his title match. He will unleash a reign of terror over the Smackdown champion.

Tonight, he proves to your beloved Daniel Bryan there are things far worse than forced retirement. Joe tells Bryan if your eco-friendly tree hugging sensibilities allow it, he tells Daniel to call Brie to tell her daughter a story. She needs to be told that daddy will be home for Money in the Bank, but he won’t be the same man. He will have the eyes of someone who is drenched in regret, failure, and missed opportunity. When she looks up, Joe says he hopes she is told it was a very bad man by the name of Samoa Joe.

Daniel Bryan comes out and he says there are certain lines that you do not cross. Daniel says he has his own vision. You mention his wife or daughter again and he will break Joe’s leg. We all know where this goes. We don’t have to wait. We can fight right now.

Before they can start their match, Big Cass comes out on his crutch.

Cass asks what is happening here. Are we children on the playground making fun of each other. What else would you expect from the shrimp and the blimp. The fact of the matter is that should be his Money in the Bank opportunity, not yours Daniel. This crap has to stop. It will, because he spoke to Paige and this match will not happen. What will happen is Samoa Joe will take on yours truly for the final spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, when he is cleared.

Cass asks rhetorically, when will he be cleared and he says he is cleared. He swings the clutch but Bryan backs him into the corner and unloads as the “yes!” chants pick up. Cass launches Bryan into the ladder in the corner and he goes down. Cass drops Joe with a briefcase shot next. Bryan also eats a briefcase shot. Cass raises the briefcase and is all smiles as the boos continue. Cass stands tall with the briefcase as his music hits. Joe is down on the outside while Bryan is laid out in the ring.

– We see Shinsuke Nakamura backstage walking. He has signs that are numbered from 1-10. He gets to the 10 sign and rips it up. Nakamura vs. Tye Dillinger will take place tonight. We go to commercial.


Paige is in the back and she wants to know if there are any issues. Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose stop Paige. Mandy and Sonya talk about the pressure she must be under. Sonya says they are giving opportunities to people who don’t deserve it. Sonya asks what has Asuka done lately. Mandy says that Charlotte beat her at Wrestlemania and then lost her first Smackdown match. Paige says that Mandy gets to face Asuka tonight to see why she is a contender for the title.

Renee Young stops Paige for comments next and asks if Cass was telling the truth about tonight’s main event being Cass vs. Joe instead of Bryan vs. Joe. Paige says she did not know that Big Cass was going to talk for her. She did like the fire from the roster. She says that Big Cass is medically cleared. Daniel Bryan earned his second chance. That means the only fair way to do it is to make it a Triple Threat Match.

He says he thinks Shinsuke is more dangerous than ever. AJ says this is the story of his life. His opponent thinks he has the advantage and he underestimates AJ. That is why he is the WWE Champion. He fights smarter than the guy who is stronger and bigger than him. He is the last man to back down from a challenge. Nakamura will try to tear down everything that he has tried to build, but in the end he will be the last man standing.
