WWE SmackDown ratings grow two percent against tough competition


Baron Corbin stepped in the ring and was ambushed by Sami Zayn.

Tyler Breeze hangs Viktor up on the second rope and Fandango knocks him down to the canvas. The King of Strong Style wanted to go in O2 Arena, but Ziggler said he'd have to wait. Erick Rowan won. Okay...sure.

As expected, Shinsuke Nakamura will have his first official match on the main roster, and he will take on former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler. With Mahal at ringside, Owens bragged about ending Chris Jericho's career, claimed Styles was next and added that he would be going after the WWE title next.

Ziggler calls Nakamura a fraud because even though he has been on SmackDown Live for a month, the former NXT Champion is yet to compete in a match. Instead, he competed in the main event of the broadcast, teaming with Owens and Corbin to battle Orton, Styles and Sami Zayn in a Six-Man Tag Team match.

The display itself will remain unchanged, most likely to make sure that all the add ons for Z-series devices will stay useful. Earlier this year, the press renders of the yet to be official Motorola Moto Z2 Play hit the web.

Since becoming the #1 Contenders to the SmackDown Tag Team Championships two weeks ago, Breezango has been featured in "The Fashion Files" video segments where they parody Law & Order. Afterwards, Rusev appeared on the screen to get an answer to the WWE title opportunity demand that he made a few weeks back. However, WWE SmackDown Live has been smart with these things to this point.

Suddenly, the lack of credibility that had plagued Mahal earlier was diminished, his legitimacy increased ahead of his championship showdown with The Viper on May 21.

After the crowded opening segment, a tag team match was scheduled in true Teddy Long style. Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens and Jinder Mahal beat Sami Zayn, AJ Styles and Randy Orton via pinfall A Combination of finishers set up Randy Orton for the RKO on Jinder Mahal, but a distraction from the Singh Brothers on the ring apron helped Mahal to hit Orton with a superkick.

Jinder picked up a huge victory by pinning Orton, after hitting him with a "cobra clutch slam" just a week-and-a-half before the pair square off for the title.
