The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
WWE SmackDown Results: 25 Years of Triple H
The build to Money in the Bank continued on a special edition of SmackDown. WWE celebrated 25 years of Triple H in the company with video packages and an appearance by the man himself. What else happened on another empty-arena show? Here are the full results:
- King Corbin def. Drew Gulak to win a spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match
- Sheamus def. Daniel Vidot
- Lucha House Party def. Miz & Morrison
- Lacey Evans def. Sasha Banks to win a spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match
- Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross (c) def. Carmella & Dana Brooke to retain the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships
The show started with a tag team celebration by the New Day. It lead to a bunch of tag teams appearing, including Lucha House Party and Miz & Morrison. However it was the appearance of The Forgotten Sons who proceeded to tear up New Day. It looks like this will be the first main roster feud for the Forgotten Sons.
Shawn Michaels appeared to roast Triple H, because what are best friends for.
One thing WWE should continue to do during this time of shutdowns is expand on character work. This segment they shot for Jeff Hardy on his redemption is a great way to build fan investment. Hardy is someone lots of fans already know well, so they should give the same treatment to newer stars.
