WWE Smackdown Results (11/15) - Philadelphia, PA

We start the show with a look back at last week when Baron Corbin blamed Roman Reigns for the problems with NXT.

We are live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as King Corbin makes his way to the ring, carried by six men, as he sits on a throne and platform. They sit the structure down at ringside and Corbin stands tall, raising his scepter. He enters the ring as Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler wait for him, clapping.

The music stops and the boos get louder. A "you suck!" chant breaks out. Corbin starts talking and fans shut him up with boos. Corbin says they need to pay respects to their king. Corbin goes on about being king and starts taking shots at Roman Reigns, calling him a shell of what he once was. He goes on and says this is no longer Reigns' yard, it's Corbin's kingdom. Corbin talks about how he should be the Team Captain at Survivor Series and shows us a graphic on the big screen. Roode and Ziggler chime in now and talk about taking their rightful spots on Team SmackDown by defeating Shorty G and Mustafa Ali tonight. We know that will be... absolutely glorious. Corbin says he's inviting The Big Dog to the ring now for this historic moment. Corbin says if they're teammates then they should all be able to co-exist in the ring now. Corbin asks the crowd if they want to see The Big Dog, and they do.

Reigns' music hits but an animated chihuahua appears on the big screen instead, barking. Or more like yelping. A man comes out dressed as a mascot-type dog. He softly punches the ground on the stage as Reigns would. The little dog on the LED board keeps yelping as the mascot dog marches to the ring. Corbin, Ziggler and Roode laugh. Corbin asks if the dog knows any tricks. He has him take a knee and bow, and shake. The animated dog continues to yelp on the big screen, as he has non-stop since first appearing, as Reigns' music plays. The mascot dog sits on his knees as Corbin, Roode and Ziggler play to the crowd for boos. We go to commercial.

We are back and The Miz makes his way to the ring for another must-see edition of MizTV. Miz takes the mic and welcomes everyone.

Miz starts talking about how "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt brought the WWE Universal Title to SmackDown and then attacked Daniel Bryan last week. Miz says he's going to find out why. Miz goes on and introduces his guest as Bryan makes his way out. Cole shows us how The Fiend attacked Bryan last week.

Miz asks Bryan why he thinks The Fiend attacked him. Bryan doesn't answer. Miz acknowledges they don't like each other, but it's a simple question - why out of everyone in the locker room, did The Fiend choose Bryan? Bryan won't answer. Miz says he thinks the attack happened because The Fiend sees how Bryan isn't who he used to be, how he's confused about who he is these days. Miz goes on ranting and says The Fiend sees how Bryan is washed up now, and wants to be the one to end Bryan.

Bryan stands up and takes the mic. Bryan says he will talk about Bray in just a second, but the reason he was quiet is because MizTV sucks, and has always sucked. Some fans boo. Bryan says Miz is right, he's not the man he was and he's not the leader of the Yes Movement, he might be washed up and mentally unstable, but there's one thing that's the same as before - passion. The passion that helped him overcome the odds at WrestleMania. Bryan goes on but Miz interrupts. Bryan screams at him to shut up. Bryan says no one understands the passion and the mental instability together, which caused him to kill the Yes Movement, kick a man in the balls to win the WWE Title. No one understands passion and that kind of instability together, but Wyatt does. Bryan goes on about how mentally unstable Fiend is, and says so he is and there's no one better to fight someone mentally unstable than... the music interrupts as Wyatt appears on the big screen for a Firefly Fun House episode.

Wyatt tells Bryan it's rude to discuss a man when he's not present. Wyatt taunts Bryan and goes on about possibly why The Fiend attacked. Maybe The Fiend just wants to play with Bryan. Wyatt pulls various "toys" out of a chest and then brings out his favorite, the WWE Universal Title. Wyatt asks Bryan if he wants to come play and if he does, just say that one magical word. Fans chant "yes!" but Bryan says no. Wyatt's various puppets also say yes but Bryan keeps saying no. No, Bryan is not going to go back and play with Wyatt and his puppets. Bryan says Wyatt is trying to manipulate he and the people, but it won't work. Bryan says if Wyatt wants to fight, let's fight, but let's do it for the Universal Title. Bryan asks Wyatt what he says now. Wyatt guesses he would have to say... yes. Wyatt starts his own "yes!" chant and the crowd picks up on it some. Wyatt keeps chanting and laughing as Bryan looks on. Wyatt goes on and on and on as the Fun House music hits. Wyatt goes off the big screen. Miz says there we have it - Bryan vs. Wyatt at Survivor Series. Bryan exits the ring as his music hits. SmackDown goes off the air as Bryan marches up the ramp.
