WWE Smackdown Results – September 18, 2020

WWE Smackdown Results - September 18, 2020

We are live from the WWE Thunderdome at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL, as we go right to the ring for the return of The Dirt Sheet. 

The Miz and John Morrison welcome us to the segment and do their introductions.

They plan to give us the dirt tonight, and not Otis’ underwear. Miz teases dirt on topics about SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Jey Uso and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, and more, but first Miz brings up Mandy Rose. We see footage from Talking Smack last weekend, where Miz got Rose traded to RAW from SmackDown by calling in a favor. Miz says he is not playing mind games with Otis or using his influence to play games, he’s just trying to help Otis because he knows what it’s like having the Money In the Bank contract – you have to be on high alert, looking for every chance possible, and Otis couldn’t do that with his girlfriend around. Miz says he sent Mandy away, now Otis can focus on cashing in his contract. Miz says Otis should be thanking him because he sent away the one true thing that was keeping him from the top of WWE.<

All of these rooms.  All of these pictures and posters.  All of the accolades. We did this together.  If these walls could talk, if they could tell you.  I came here to answer your questions but if you want to say you are an idiot or naive.  You are watching this.  You are an idiot and naive because you are nothing without me.  Since I am useless to you, one day, I am going to take the one thing that you love.  Your Smackdown Women’s Champonship.
