Last night’s Smackdown main event witnessed a huge tag team match where Randy Orton, AJ Styles, and Shinsuke Nakamura teamed up to take on Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Jinder Mahal. Since the holiday season is pretty close, the audience received a treat from the babyface superstars who picked up a dominant win in the match and celebrated to end the show.
There were pretty much more in store for the crowd in attendance at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The raucous crowd got the chance to witness a brutal street fight between the former United States Champion and one of the challengers from Clash of Champions.
Baron Corbin locked horns against Bobby Roode in this packed dark match which was a physical contest. In the end, The Glorious One picked up a pinfall win to send the crowd home on a happy note. Fans do love these kinds of special matches with stipulations added to it, and this one was no exception.

Lots of kendo sticks, tables, and other weapons were used in it to make it worth the watch. These two beat the hell out of each other before Roode picked up the win. Furthermore, the fans loved the glorious entrance of the former NXT Champion.
In the other dark match of the evening, two of the bitter rivals from Smackdown locked horns in a tag team action. Zack Ryder had Tyler Breeze and Fandango, as his partner to take on the team of Mojo Rawley and The Colons (Primo & Epico). Quite expectedly, the babyfaces picked up the win. It is likely to keep the momentum in Ryder’s favour which would continue his feud with Mojo till the Royal Rumble PPV.
On the Smackdown Fallout show, we witnessed The New Day who was getting ready for the Holiday season of 2017. They have got into the mood after picking up the win against Rusev and Aiden English.
Also, Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable gave a fired-up interview on the show. They have picked up a pinfall win against the champions and likely to get a title match, yet again.
