WWE Smackdown Results - June 5, 2018

WWE Smackdown Results - June 5, 2018
Tonight's WWE SmackDown opens live from the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Tom Phillips welcomes us. He's joined by Corey Graves and Byron Saxton. They hype tonight's show - Rusev, The Miz and Samoa Joe vs. The New Day in six-man action, mixed tag team action with Jimmy Uso and Naomi vs. Lana and Aiden English, Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair in a battle of best friends.

- We go right to the ring and SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella waits with a mic as her music plays. Carmella calls out and asks Corpus Christi what's up and then demands they stand to praise her for being champion.

Carmella says we're right, tonight isn't about her, it's about her Money In the Bank opponent - Asuka. Carmella says Asuka isn't who we think she is but before she exposes The Empress of Tomorrow, we get a video package looking at Asuka's dominant reign in WWE. Carmella says Asuka is amazing, or was. She mocks her and says it's time to remove the mask to face this horrible truth together. Carmella shows us another video package and says this is the real Asuka. This video shows Charlotte Flair ending the undefeated streak and a few more unfortunate events in Asuka's run. Carmella says that was painful to watch and the truth is she hasn't been the same since the streak ended at WrestleMania 34. Carmella says this is why she has no fear, because Mella Is Money and The Age of Asuka is over. Carmella says Asuka was undefeated but now she's just defeated. It used to be no one is ready for Asuka but now everyone is ready for her, even some of the pathetic fans in the crowd, including the one guy drooling all over the place. The music finally interrupts and out comes Asuka.

Asuka does her entrance but before anything can happen, the music hits and out comes Mandy Rose with Sonya Deville. Rose says Carmella didn't have to go through all that trouble of a presentation, she could've just asked her how Asuka is. Rose talks about how she was close to beating Asuka last week and now that she knows the truth, she knows she can beat Asuka... tonight. Deville says Rose did exactly what she was supposed to do - left just enough of Asuka for her. Sonya says her turn is tonight. Carmella says they are right but who's it going to be? Mandy or Sonya? She says the undefeated Asuka would've taken them both on but she's just defeated now. Carmella suggests Asuka call an Uber and get the hell out of here. The music interrupts again and out comes SmackDown General Manager Paige. Paige says once again, no one speaks for her because she's the one that makes the matches around here. Paige says Asuka has unfinished business with both of these ladies. Paige asks Asuka which opponent she wants, Rose or Deville? Asuka is all smiles. She snatches the mic from Carmella and says she wants both. Paige says that's the Asuka we all know and love. Paige announces Asuka vs. Rose and Deville in a Handicap Match, up next.

We go to commercial.

In the Arena:

Big Cass makes his way to the side of the stage. Renee asks Cass about his match against Daniel Bryan at Money in the Bank and how will he make sure the result is different.

Cass says he is a big man unlike Daniel Bryan who is only an inch taller than Renee. Cass has a little story. He was backstage at Wrestlemania 30 while he was in NXT. He walked down the hallway and he was walking behind Daniel Bryan, who had just won the WWE Championship. Cass says all he could think was 'seriously? How could this pathetic little man be the WWE Champion?' That main event victory was a fluke, just like his victory at Backlash. Cass says he will give credit where credit is due. He picks a punch for someone with as petitte a stature. A good big man will always beat a good little man.

Cass says poor little guy. Cass says he almost feels bad for Daniel. Daniel asked for that. He asked to come back to WWE and he asked to come back to the ring. Little did he know that he would have a seven foot shadow following him. Daniel Bryan has never been in the ring with anyone as big as him, as educated as him, or as big a star as him. Daniel has never been in the ring with someone who holds a grudge like him. Cass says that is why he will do everything he can do to dismantle Daniel Bryan and embarrass him. Cass says he will take his scrawny little arms and rip them off his body.

Daniel Bryan needs to take his ball and go home. He needs to do what he does best, playing a garden gnome on Total Bellas. Daniel will be beaten and battered. He will come to the slow realization that a pathetic little man like him will never survive in this big man's world.

Backstage:

Dasha Fuentes is backstage with Sin Cara, asking him if he was wrong to assume that he was still friends with Andrade "Cien" Almas after last week's segment with Almas and Zelina Vega.

Cara says they have been friends since they were teenagers and he considered Almas to be like a brother but something happened... Vega interrupts and asks if Cara is referring to her. She's not just some thing, she's the best thing that's happened to Almas. Vega says Almas accomplished nothing when he looked up to Cara. Almas told her Cara made him hide behind a mask and made him weak. Vega taught him he doesn't have to hide from anyone or be afraid, especially Cara. Cara doesn't believe her but she reveals that Almas went to Paige and got a match against Cara for next week. Almas suddenly attacks from behind and beats Cara down, destroying him. Almas and Vega leave as officials check on Cara.
