WWE Smackdown Results - November 27, 2018

WWE Smackdown Results
We are live from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as Smackdown GM Paige is in the ring to start the show. Paige welcomes us and she introduces the Smackdown Women's Champion, Becky Lynch

Becky says when you are the hottest thing in the industry, any time away is a bad thing. She invaded Raw, she fought and she bled. She was on Smackdown and The Survivor Series and tried to fight but she was held back. Becky says she is putting herself back in the ring. Becky says she had to watch someone else fight Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series and she wants to deal with it now. Becky asks for Charlotte Flair to come to the ring.

Becky says she told Charlotte to give the beating she would have given Ronda, but she almost did it. If she did it, Ronnie wouldn't be standing. It took you channeling the Man to take it to Ronda.

Charlotte says she wasn't trying to be Becky, she was being herself, the seven time women's champion and the only woman on either roster capable of giving Ronda the beating she deserves. Charlotte says she is more capable because she is genetically superior and she has the mindset to do any solitary thing to get the job done.

Becky says Charlotte went from copying her old man to The Man. She is a bootleg Becky and Charlotte is no longer pretending.

Charlotte says Nia must have hit you harder than she thought. You went from quirky to delusional. You are copying her old man and still riding her coattails. Charlotte says the Queen stands out in the crowd and she will be at TLC. She was the one born ready. Charlotte says she did not fight for Becky, she fought for herself. She will fight Becky right now.

Paige tells both of them to shut up and be quiet. Paige says she hasn't seen this much fire from Charlotte since Becky. She has not seen anyone with that much desire. Charlotte will get her title match against Becky. It will be a TLC match.

Mandy Rose's music interrupts and she is joned by Sonya Deville, Zelina Vega, Billie Kay, and Peyton Royce.

Rose says this is a joke and insulting as Paige said no one else has shown the drive & desire that Flair has. Rose says any of them could have done the exact same thing to Rousey, and any of them deserve a title match with Becky but Paige doesn't give them the time of day. The music interrupts and out comes Naomi, Carmella, Asuka and Lana. Naomi takes the mic but fans break out in a chant for Asuka. Naomi says with all due respect, she knows Paige isn't questioning her desire. This leads to Paige announcing a Battle Royal for tonight with the women's division, except for Flair and Becky. The winner will be added to the TLC match at TLC, making it a Triple Threat. Paige's music hits as everyone looks around at each other.

In the Arena:

We are back and AJ Styles makes his way to the ring.

AJ says for fourteen days, he has been without the WWE title. Those fourteen days seem a lot longer than the three hundred seventy-one days he had with the championship. AJ says he hates losing, but it is the way he lost that bothers him. We see footage of the kick that led to the end of AJ's title reign.

AJ says once he became the WWE Champion, he knew there would be a target on his back. Who knew the target would move somewhere else. AJ says he knows what it is like to do anything to get what you want. AJ says it bothered him what Daniel did after the match and it was so severe he was not cleared to be at Survivor Series or last week's Smackdown. AJ says he watched Daniel Bryan explain his actions from home.

AJ says that is a lot of BS and trash. It does not matter if it is the new Daniel Bryan or the old Daniel Bryan, he is looking forward to smashing his face in. AJ says they don't have to wait until TLC. AJ says that Daniel Bryan is not here. Daniel was not at the live events last weekend. It looks like someone has been watching Raw and getting ideas about how to do things. AJ says this is the house that AJ Styles built. AJ says he never missed an event as champion. This was where he belonged. When you roll out of your hyperbaric chamber, make sure you are at TLC.

You can bring your dreams and excuses, but don't forget to bring the title belt because it belongs to AJ Styles. AJ drops the mic as his music hits.

Shane tries to take Joe's mic but Jeff says it is okay.

Joe says it is good that Jeff got to see that video because he probably wasn't coherent when that happened. Joe says he does not celebrate weakness and he does not believe in second chances when people like him have not gotten their first. Joe says what bugs him the most is that despite all of the mistakes you have made, you are okay being put on a pedestal and it makes him sick.

There have been just as many times that you have had people on your feet as you have let them down. People like you never change and the demons never leave, ready to take over. The next time you are powerless, Joe is willing to offer his hand. It is a one step program that will be quick and won't be painless.

Jeff says no matter what he says, Joe can't rain on his parade tonight. Jeff says he's walked the tight rope for 20 years and almost ended his career 20 times but he's about the moments. He asks Joe if he'd like to make a moment here tonight. Jeff drops the mic for a fight but Joe walks up the ramp to the back as fans boo. Jeff's music hits as he claps with the fans.
