WWE Smackdown Results - August 7, 2020

WWE Smackdown Results - August 7, 2020
We begin with a look at the Swamp Fight from Extreme Rules and The Fiend attacking Alexa Bliss at the end of last week's Smackdown.

We go to the Firefly Funhouse and Bray Wyatt welcomes us. He says he needs to address things. Haters have been blaming him for what happened to Alexa Bliss last week. He says if anyone deserves blame, it should be Braun Strowman. How could you let someone you care about have to deal with the Fiend. All you had to do is give HIM what he wants. The Fiend will be here later tonight with someone special. My advise is to give him what he wants or she'll find out what he's truly capable of. We see flashes of The Fiend. Wyatt is all serious while talking about The Fiend but he suddenly snaps out of it and goes back to laughing, saying he gets the heebie-jeebies just thinking about The Fiend. Wyatt waves goodbye to end the segment.
