WWE SmackDown Results (7/30) - Minneapolis, MN

WWE SmackDown Results (7/30) – Minneapolis, MN – We are live from the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN, as John Cena makes his way to the ring to start the show. After his entrance, we get a video package of last week, with Paul Heyman mocking Cena’s theme and Reigns turning down the challenge.

John comments on Roman’s missionary position comment and then he welcomes everyone to Smackdown.  John mentions the contract signing and he is happy for Finn Balor but he says that Roman Reigns sucks.  He says that Roman is a scared little kid.  Roman accepts Finn’s challenge and Roman rejects John.  John says he has no problem with rejection.  It was his reasons.   He talked about how he didn’t change his music, his look, or who he is.  He says that is so stupid.  That is like asking Steve Austin to come back to the WWE as Sasquatch Steve Houston.  It would be like the Rock coming back to the WWE as Dwayne ‘Too Small’ Johnson.  He talks about his possible new catchhprase.

He says they stand proud in this ring every night and they don’t beg you to acknowledge them.  They allow you to boo and cheer.  Roman expected him to change because that is what Roman has to do.  John says Roman has to change every two years because you stop caring about him.  You stop caring about him because you don’t believe in him.  You don’t believe in Roman because he does not believe in himself.  Roman is a lazy stooge named Joe who coasts by on every gimmick.  John says he would have embarrassed Roman’s ass at SummerSlam.  You rejected me not because how I look, but because of how I would make you look.

Baron Corbin comes out and he says they need to talk. 

John says that the crowd is chanting ‘you suck’ but John says he doesn’t know who he is.  Corbin gets on the apron and John realizes that it is Baron Corbin.  He tells Corbin he looks horrible. Cena agrees with Corbin’s assessment about himself. 

Corbin says he wants to talk to John and he says he is desperate.  Baron says his life is falling apart.  He lost his crown, his cars, he is going to lose his house.  Someone stole his identity and his credit is trash.  Baron mentions he sustained an injury to a sensitive part of his body.  Baron says he is unable to… John says surf the internet, eat breakfast cereal. Baron says he cannot perform.  Baron says his wife left and she took the kids.  Baron says he saw the charitable John Cena who grants so many wishes.  He asks if John can help him.  

John says he loves himself some audience participation and he asks the crowd if they should help him. The crowd started a Yes chants.

John gives Baron some money and Baron says that John is rich.  He says it doesn’t have to be money.  He asks John to put him in his next movie or Suicide Squad.  John says they finished filming Suicide Squad and it debuts on Friday.  Baron says he will be John’s stunt double.  Baron asks John if he is going to kick a poor man when he is down.  Baron says that John is a selfish, self-absorbed, tight wad with an ego the size of California.  He calls John a ‘Hollywood sell out’.

John suggests that we help this man.  John says he will give Baron something.  Something that he desperately needs… an attitude adjustment.  Cena gets Corbin up for an Attitude Adjustment and hits it. Cena takes the money back and leaves.

Carmella comes out and she congratulates Bianca on 100 days.  If you really want to cement your legacy, you should give one more title match to someone who has held the title for 130 days.  That would be the person who is known as the most beautiful woman in WWE.   Carmella says she knows that she deserves it.  The lights last week were too bright.

Zelina Vega comes out and she tells Carmella to slow her roll.  You are too pretty to be a third time loser.  Bianca, I am going to say it to your face.  Zelina says she thinks the WWE Universe wants to see you challenge a rising star like me.  I am the moment and no one is more deserving than me.  Accept my challenge, Bianca. Bianca says Zelina is on.
