What transpired once WWE Smackdown live went off the air: August 7, 2018
Smackdown had a packed edition last night with multiple good segments. We have seen two top stars delivering solid promos to their current rivals.
There were multiple entertaining matches on the show setting things up for Summerslam. Daniel Bryan vs The Miz is finally official for the biggest event of the summer.
Once Smackdown went off the air, WWE released exclusive footage of their brawl. These two were not present on this week’s show live in-person. Instead, they shared a backstage segment which saw Daniel Bryan pouncing on The Miz after hearing enough trash. He was unloading punches to The A-lister when the security teams interrupted.
You can check the above footages released by the WWE Youtube channel to take a closer look at the segment. It ended with The Miz smashing a flower vase to Bryan’s head.
The main event of Smackdown witnessed an entertaining match between The New Day and The Bar. The babyface team ended solidifying their spots at the Summerslam PPV. They will now get to challenge The Bludgeon Brothers in the championship match.
Once the main show was over, the fun-loving team appeared on the fallout show. WWE interviewer Kyla Braxton tried to interview them throwing some questions. But they were busy celebrating their win at the backstage area. Even WWE Champion AJ Styles also joined them in the party.
Well this is one heck of a kickoff match: Naomi & Asuka vs Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville. #SDLive #WWEOrlando pic.twitter.com/IZfEM4ruHo

There was a solid main event match for the crowd in attendance in Orlando, Florida. The WWE Champion was back in action as per the reports of wrestlingINC.com,
“The dark main event after tonight’s WWE 205 Live tapings in Orlando saw Jeff Hardy and WWE Champion AJ Styles team up to defeat Samoa Joe and Randy Orton.”
Also, we had spotted Aiden English on the Smackdown fallout show. He was in no condition to talk after costing Lana in her matches for two consecutive weeks.
Things backfired for him every single time. He even tried to apologize to Lana and Rusev later. But the couple turned down his offer.
