Things We Learned From WWE SmackDown In The UK (May 9)

Things We Learned From WWE SmackDown In The UK (May 9)

Despite the near-record low WWE Raw ratings from the night before and strong competition from network fare and the National Basketball Association playoffs, SmackDown's ratings for their taped show on Tuesday, May 9th were up two percent from last week.

The next match on the roster is between Kevin Owens and AJ Styles for the US championship. The main was then made - a 6-man tag match with Zayn, Styles and Orton facing Corbin, Owens and Mahal.

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.

Natalya defeated Becky Lynch with a rollup. That allowed Natalya to win by roll-up.

Smackdow LIVE may have taken place across the pond this week, but Dolph Ziggler's apparent hatred for Shinsuke Nakamura wasn't denied entry into the UK. Nakamura countere and Zigler had to retreat. In tonight show, more matches are expected to announce plus builds up Backlash PPV.

The show was taped earlier in the day from the United Kingdom and was heavily wrestling-oriented with a main event six-man tag match featuring WWE World Champion Randy Orton, Jinder Mahal, and more. AJ Styles and Baron Corbin also came out for this segment. Those two now have a match set for Backlash.

After the match, The Usos interrupt the celebration to cut an intense and odd promo about how they are going to retain the SmackDown Tag Team Championships at Backlash.

Ahead of their highly anticipated arrival, The New Day declares that the rest of SmackDown LIVE's tag teams are booty. Owens just got the title back around his shoulder, so we just can't see him losing it so quickly.

SmackDown's Fashion Police, Tyler Breeze & Fandango, look to close the case on The Ascension, only to receive a stern warning from The Usos ahead of WWE Backlash.

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.
