WWE Announces Smackdown To Air Live

WWE posted the following

A SmackDown shakeup is about to completely reshape all of WWE. Beginning July 19, the second longest-running weekly episodic program in television history, SmackDown, will move from Thursday to Tuesday nights and air LIVE each and every week — for the first time ever — at 8/7 C on USA Network, the exclusive cable home to WWE’s marquee properties.

This bold move will have major ramifications for all of WWE and exemplify the New Era, as both Raw and SmackDown will each feature their own unique rosters and rivalries following an imminent Superstar draft.

"WWE's flagship programs will both leverage the incredible depth of our talent roster, distinct storylines and the unpredictable nature of live TV," WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon said. “This move will undoubtedly build more excitement and deepen engagement with our fans around th­e world.”



With so many explosive competitors emerging from WWE NXT, and top Superstars like John Cena and Seth Rollins returning from injury, WWE’s star-powered roster has never been stronger. Its historic division and the monumental revelation of SmackDown’s shift to a live format each week reflect the excitement and unpredictability of WWE’s New Era.

What awaits SmackDown on its new night, starting this July? Which live shows will claim your favorite Superstars? What will this all mean for the future of sports-entertainment? Stay tuned as WWE prepares to get shaken up like never before.

Live results for WWE Raw 5/23/16

Ambrose vs. Ziggler, Jericho vs. Apollo Cruz, Cesaro vs. Miz, Zayn vs. Sheamus & Styles vs. Owens. These matches are all set for tonight's WWE Raw from Baltimore, Maryland as the fallout from Extreme Rules and the road to Money In The Bank begins. All the aforementioned matches are MITB qualifier matches, with more apparently scheduled for Smackdown on Thursday. We've also got the Raw return of Seth Rollins as he made an impact last night after the main event of Extreme Rules, plus who knows what else? Only one way to find out, keep it here for all the latest.

We start with a recap of last night's main event and Seth's return.

Raw intro and pyro greets us for this weeks show, followed by Seth's music and Rollins makes his way to the ring, a great ovation from the fans. 'Welcome Back' chants galore. Seth says that he's been waiting 200 days since his last appearance in the ring and he's excited... and he's back. He wants the title that he never lost and he fired the first shot last night, as they show him Pedigreeing Roman last night. 'Thank You Rollins' chants. He wonders if they missed him. 'Yes!' chants. He finds if interesting that it wasn't this way originally. When he broke up The Shield, they booed, when he was champ, people were begging for him to lose his belt, discrediting all the work that he put into his title reign. And then his knee broke after carrying the weight of the company on his back. He got Get Well Soon messages... that he didn't read, he just threw them in the trash and set them on fire.

Seth doesn't need anybody to get back to the top, if if people don't like him, then there's only one space on the Rollins bandwagon, and that's set for him. He's suffered and rehabbed through the past 7 months while everyone did nothing and he WILL take back HIS World Heavyweight Championship. Cue Roman's music and the usual muted booing from Kevin Dunn. He heads to the ring and as he gets in, Seth immediately flees the ring, saying how everything is about him now as he walks around the ring. Shane's music hits and he joins Roman in the ring. Shane wants Seth to come back in the ring for an 'adult conversation'. He knows there's a lot of animosity between the two of them. He cashed in the MITB briefcast at Mania 31 and held on belt until his injury. So at MITB in 4 weeks, it'll be Rollins vs. Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

They run through the MITB qualifying matches set for tonight, with Cesaro vs. Miz, Ambrose vs. Ziggler, Jericho vs. Cruz, Styles vs. Owens & Zayn vs. Sheamus.

Sheanmus backstage with Renee, saying that he can't believe that he's in an era where he has to be in a qualifying match against somebody with a name like Sami Zayn. He warns small children to stop watching because the beating he'll be dishing out will not be suitable for minors.

Sami Zayn is out first for our opening match, followed by Sheamus.

Match 1 - MITB Qualifier - Sami Zayn vs. Sheamus
Good opener. Zayn wins with the Helluva Kick from out of nowhere.
WINNER - Sami Zayn

Sheamus is losing it in the ring.

Renee backstage with Apollo Cruz. Cruz says that tonight is the biggest match of his life... but he gets destroyed by Sheamus. He rants about the New Era and how he he will be there to knock the New Era down.

Speaking of New... It's A New Day, Yes It Is! New Day make their way to the ring for a 6-man tag match. There's a cake in the ring for some reason. Woods says how they're still champions, but the cake is for WWE Raw, celebrating over 1,200 episodes. Big E. is worried though, as he says that a cake is never safe in the WWE ring. They tease throwing it at the fans in the front row, and the commentary team, but The Social Outcasts of Slater, Dallas & Axel attack them from behind and celebrate in the ring as we go to commercial.

Back from break and the match is already underway.

Up next, it's Miz vs. Cesaro in a MITB qualifier.

Miz is out first for our next match, with Maryse introducing him and he boasts how he's still the IC champion and will be Mr. Money In The Bank again. He says how last night's match was a Hollywood blockbuster. He and Maryse have a smoochie session but Cesaro interrupts with his entrance.

Renee backstage asks Sheamus what his reaction is to what just happened. Sheamus just laughs away and walks off.

Apparently, we're making Darren Young great again... nope...

Jojo backstage with Baron Corbin, and they recap his victory over Dolph Ziggler last night. He doesn't care what people think about his victory last night because he could do what he did because it was a No DQ match. Dolph comes in saying that Baron isn't as good as he thinks and wants a 'technical' match with him. Baron says he's all for it and can't wait to destroy him. Dolph says that sounds good for next week, but he wants Corbin to watch his performance later tonight to realize what he's dealing with.

Big Cass makes his way out... AND SO DOES THE RETURNING ENZO! Enzo & Cass do their usual intro. Enzo says how he was out with a concussion, but is back and ready to teach the Dudley Boyz a lesson that getting involved in things that don't concern them. Cass agrees and says how the Dudleyz are SAWFT. The Dudleys make their way out next, and we've got singles action after the break.

Charlotte, Ric & Dana backstage, they'll be heading to the ring next.

Susan G. Komen spot.

They replay the shenanigans from last night's Women's Championship match.

Charlotte, Ric & Dana make their way to the ring. Ric wants to start off by saying how proud he is of her since winning the Women's title at Mania. He praises her for all her accomplishments throughout her life. Charlotte now gets the mic and thanks herself first and then Dana. Dana then thanks her for letting her be in the same ring as him. Charlotte says how she remembers the Thanksgivings, Christmases & Birthdays and how he was never there for her. She couldn't understand for years why he wasn't around, but she gets it now that she's the Women's Champ. She is the Woman now and now has the confidence to say to him... GET OUT OF HER RING!

Ric is stunned. She says that people of his generation never want to leave the spotlight. It's no longer Ric's daughter... it's Charlotte's Dad. She's so disappointed that everyone thinks she can't do it by herself. She  has no time for him and doesn't need him anymore. Ric is crying away. Charlotte says that Ric is immortal to the fans, but to her, he's dead. He wants him out and he can watch her on TV, just like she had to watch him over the years. Flair goes to the back, completely distraught, as Charlotte celebrates herself as we go to break.

Dean Ambrose is out first for our next match, followed by Dolph Ziggler.

Match 6 - MITB Qualifier - Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler
Good match. Dean wins with Dirty Deeds.
WINNER - Dean Ambrose

Ric walking backstage, heading out but Renee grabs him and asks if he has anything to say. Flair simply shakes his head and walks out through the exit.

Primo & Epico cut a video promo. The Shining Stars have been buried THAT quick.

AJ Styles is out first for our next match. He gets the mic and cuts a promo, saying that Roman is every bit the man that he says he is. But he isn't phenomenal and if it wasn't for the Good Brothers or The Usos he would have had it won. The Good Brothers come out and aren't happy that they got considered the problems of last night. AJ says he wants to do it alone, not like it was back in Japan. Gallows says that AJ's changed since he left Japan and Anderson adds that if they hadn't got involved, AJ wouldn't have made it to Extreme Rules. AJ says that they're done. But no-one can separate them from being brothers. The Good Brothers don't like this and say that they are no longer brothers. AJ wants them out of the ring. Anderson & Gallows leave. Owens will be out next.

Set for Smackdown, it'll be Miz defending the IC title against Cesaro and Rusev defending the US title against Kalisto.

Kevin Owens is making his way to the ring now.
