WWE SmackDown Results (8/6) – Tampa FL – We are live from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL, as Sasha Banks makes her way to the ring.
Sasha says hello to Tampa and she says the boss is back and it is Boss Time on Smackdown. As Sasha Banks, I came back for my spotlight that I deserve. I am back for my spotlight that I created. I will never let anyone steal my spotlight again.
We have a video package for what happened when Sasha returned last week, attacking Bianca Belair.
Sasha says she exposed Bianca Belair last week and it was so easy. She was watching Bianca make mistake after mistake. I decided to make a statement and rescue our women’s champion. Bianca would be nothing without her. There would be no ESPY Awards. There would be no chilling with Meghan Thee Stallion. There would be no main event at Wrestlemania. Bianca was crying because she was stepping across the ring from the greatest. Bianca had to diss her. There was no gratitude.
While I was sitting at home, I was thinking about the disrespect week after week. I came back for only one thing. To make Bianca pay.
Bianca’s music interrupts and she makes her way to the ring.
Bianca asks Sasha if she thinks that Bianca is nothing without her? The last time she checked, you were begging her to choose her at the Royal Rumble to main event Wrestlemania and make history together. You don’t want me to shine. I have been shining and representing.
Bianca enters the ring and Sasha goes to the floor. Bianca asks where is Sasha going. Is it something that she said. Are you going to take another four momtns off? Sasha says she can do what she wants when she wants. Bianca says that Sasha is one of the greatEST to lace up the boots. if you want this… it’s on.
Here comes Zelina Vega. Zeiina says this is not happening right now. Bianca, is that ugly little braid tied too tight. Are you lost? Last week… Bianca tells Zelina not to enter the ring. Zelina says she will stay on the apron. She says before Sasha swooped in like the ratchet little vulture, you accepted my challenge. What do you want to do?
Sasha asks Bianca what is she going to do? Bianca says Zelina wasn’t talking to Sasha, she was talking to her because she is the champ. Bianca says she will see Sasha at SummerSlam. She tells Zelina that she didn’t forget about the challenge so she will fight her tonight.
Rey asks Dominik why did he challenge Jey to a match tonight and Dominik says he is trying to get into Jey’s head. Rey says that since they have the tag title match for SummerSlam, they need to be more strategic. He says they cannot afford a loss before SummerSlam. He says he wants the titles back.

— Kayla Braxton is waiting to talk to Roman Regins’ door. We take a look at last week’s contract ‘signing’ segment.
We return to Roman’s door and Paul emerges to yell at Kayla. Paul wants to know what she wants. Kayla says she was hoping to see if Roman had any comments about what happened last week. Paul says he is asking if Kayla means last week’s contract signing where John Cena is thieving air on the Island of Relevance and now he is thieving a match at SummerSlam. Paul asks if he hits Tom Brady from behind and signs his contract for $75 million, does he get the $75 million? This contract is a joke. The claim that John Cena should face Roman Reigns is baseless. WWE is enabling John Cena to slide into a match that he does not deserve. Roman Reigns has nothing to say about John Cena or to Kayla.
Big E shows up with his briefcase and he laughs. Paul backs up into Roman’s locker room carefully.

— Edge makes his way to the ring as we go to commercial.
In the Arena:
We are back and Edge says that he has been told that Seth Rollins is not here tonight. He is nowhere near here. Edge says he does not blame him. It would not work out too well for him because if Seth was here, he would be in jail. He had no problem until Seth cost him the title at Money in the Bank. I would have done the same thing. It is like looking at a mirror. This will not end well for either of us. It will end and if Seth was here tonight, it would end.
Seth appears on the TitanTron ‘via satellite’.
Seth says Edge thinks he is so smart and has everything figure out, other than last week when I smashed your face with a camera. You should have seen it coming because it was out of your playbook. We are a lot alike. We are drawn together in this dance. That is where the similiarites end. If the Ultimate Opportunist is half the man the Architect is, he would know to have a Plan B.
Edge says he has a Plan B. What about you and me at SummerSlam.
Seth tells Edge to cool his jets and he says that he calls the shots around here, not Edge. Seth says he will think about it. He says he has a lot going on. He tells Edge that while he mulls it over, maybe Edge should think about it. What are you getting yourself into? You know what it is like to have my boot on the back of your neck. You know what happens when I stomp on someone’s neck who is perfect. What about someone whose neck has been fused three times. Your little comeback and career will be done. What kind of future will you have as a husband and father.
Edge tells Seth not to talk about his family. You think you are the architect. You are a fever dream of a televangelist and Colonel Sanders. You circle back to me. I helped eliminate you in the 2020 Royal Rumble and the 2021 Royal Rumble. It was because you didn’t finish the job in 2014 and it is biting you in the ass. Edge says that Seth is trying to walk in his footsteps because you cannot follow them. You are Edge Light.
Seth says he has had enough. He says he is better than Edge in every single way and you know it. You want me one on one at SummerSlam? You’re on.
Kayla Braxton is in the back with Finn Balor. Finn says last week he was this close to signing a contract for the Universal title, until Baron Corbin stuck his nose in his business.
