WWE SmackDown Results (9/24) Philadelphia, PA – We are live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA, as Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring to start the show.
While she poses for the fans during the entrance, we see what happened last week between Lynch and Bianca Belair in Knoxville.
Becky pulls a Roman and she listens to the crowd before asking if there was going to be a Becky Party tonight. They threw a party for Bianca last week in her home town for… making it out of there and doing good for herself. Becky says she has done good too. She came back on short notice and after having a child, she won the title back in record time. No one threw a party for her. As the better man, she went out to shake Bianca’s hand.
Unprovoked, Bianca tried to assert her dominance and hold on to her hand. Becky asks what option did she have. It is hit or be hit. What choice did she have? Becky says she didn’t want to embarrass Bianca in front of her mom and dad, her friends, and teachers. She wanted to let Bianca recalibrate after her loss at SummerSlam. Bianca goaded her into a rematch at Extreme Rules.
Bianca Belair’s music plays and she makes her way to the ring.
Bianca tells Becky to keep her mom and dad’s name out of her mouth. You did beat me at SummerSlam and you embarrassed me in my home town. You think if that is going to happen on Sunday? It isn’t going to happen. I didn’t know I was going to be facing you.
Becky says that Bianca knew she was having a match, but she did not know she is facing the greatest champion. She asks if the “EST” is just a catchphrase.
Bianca asks how many times does she have to show that she is the EST before Becky believes it. I am the strongest because I got to pick you up over my head in heels. I am the fastest because I achieved the goals that you did like winning the Royal Rumble and main eventing Wrestlemania and I did it in a quarter of the time. I also won an ESPY.
Becky says that she showed the world how to be great. Bianca says that Becky is living on the match at SummerSlam. The match on Sunday won’t end in 26 seconds. It will be the EST versus the greatest woman to hold that title. The winner will be the EST.
Bianca offers her hand and Becky slaps Bianca. Bianca with a forearm and kicks to Becky. Bekcy sends Bianca into the turnbuckles and Becky goes for a Rock Bottom but Bianca blocks it and hits the KOD.

Seth Rollins is in the back and he says he is a patient man. It has been seven days since I laid an ultimatum at your feet and I have gotten no response. Not a peep. That’s okay because the sound of your silence is deafening. It reveals the truth and the truth is that you are hurt. I may be the reason you will never be in a WWE ring again. While it is mildly amusing to me, it is not good enough. I want an answer. I don’t want to wait any more. This is how it is going to be. You are going to show up at Smackdown and you will crawl yourself to the ring and you will tell the world the truth. That I am not Edge Lite and that I am superior to you in every way. That I am the man responsible for ending your career.
You can choose not to do that but I will not be made a liar of. I will find you where you sleep and I will beat those words out of you in front of you wife and your children. The choice is yours. I know you will make the right one.
