Orton plants Nakamura with RKO

The Ravishing Russian declares that Tamina's path of destruction to the Smack Down Women's Championship begins next week

Will Bobby Roode continue to make SmackDown glorious?

In continuing a recent trend, Kevin Owens comes down to the ring to complain about how he was screwed out of the United States Championship (with evidence proving so).

After a brief scuffle, Dillinger was still able to face Styles as he punched out Corbin and had the referee immediately start the match. Tye asked the ref to ring the bell for the match.

Before the match, AJ gloats a little over the fact that Kevin Owens can no longer challenge for the United States title. The Singh brothers tell Jinder that they failed him last week by allowing Shinsuke to attack him. Dillinger gets a good portion of his signature moves in, but one mistake gives Styles the opportunity to lock in the Calf Crusher, ending the match right there.

The match itself was formulaic but satisfied the crowd in that it hit every note one expects from a tag team main event in today's WWE.

He made short work of Aiden English in the ring, so who will be next? There aren't many "free" faces on the blue brand for him to take on, but I have a feeling that Sami Zayn may be used in his role as sacrificial lamb as Roode's first feud. Owens, who was on commentary said that he had enough of this, and got into the ring and took the referee's shirt. He then planted Zayn with a pump-up Pop-Up Powerbomb as Aiden pinned him for a three count. Kevin Owens walked out and told him that none of the fans can't appreciate his talents. Back to full screen, and Konnor hits a spinebuster for 2.

According to the report, Ziggler was only brought back to TV for this particular feud, and it seems that Dolph could be leaving WWE in October when his contract expires, as he's reportedly "very unlikely" to renew his deal.

Dolph Ziggler is one of WWE's most talented athletes, there's no denying that, but throughout his career Ziggler just hasn't been able to find a secure spot at the top of the card.

On SmackDown LIVE, Woods wore a brace on his leg while accompanying Big E and Kofi Kingston for their match against The Usos.

Tamina Snuka def. Tina Stock via pifnall: Lana is back as a full-time manager in "professional" attire and all, even instructing Tamina to "crush" her jobber live on mic during the match. After catching Kofi Kingston with a roll-up via a blind tag, the Usos were in a dominant position as they could decide on what kind of match they wanted to have in their title defense. She won the match in about 50 seconds or so.

- The dark match before tonight's SmackDown saw Naomi defeat Carmella by submission.

But if Tamina lives up to Lana's promise then she could easily enter the title picture. As Nakamura is getting beaten down, Randy Orton (Nakamura's tag team partner later on tonight) tries to save him. Shinsuke kicks at Rusev and then knees him in the mid section. Eventually, Nakamura landed the Kinshasa on Rusev for the win. Post-match, Orton talked to Nakamura a bit and then hit a surprise RKO out of nowhere to leave "The King of Strong Style" laying on the mat as WWE "SmackDown" ended.
