WWE SmackDown Live 12/5/17 Results:

Kevin Owens ate an RKO outta nowhere!

Aiden English and Rusev def. The New Day to earn a spot in the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match at Clash of Champions. Hooray Rusev Day!

SmackDown Live GM Daniel Bryan made Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya for the WWE Women’s Championship a lumberjack match at Clash of Champions. Yes, another lumberjack match taking place a couple weeks apart from the last one on the same brand.

The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan) confront Natalya, Tamina Snuka, Ms. MITB Carmella (with briefcase nicknamed Frankie), and Lana

“The Glorious” Bobby Roode def. WWE United States Champion Baron Corbin in a non-title match via disqualification after interference from Dolph Ziggler. This was just a match with a lame finish.

The Bludgeon Brothers def. Adam James & Josh Carr. Total squash and another nice showcase for Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.

WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair def. Tamina Snuka (with Lana and Natalya) in a non-title match.

Randy Orton def. Sami Zayn (with Kevin Owens handcuffed to the ropes). Fun TV main event that featured KO botching in his attempts to help Zayn. After the match, KO and Zayn attack Orton until Shinsuke Nakamura runs in for the save. Orton and Nakamura clean house as we cut to backstage with Bryan and SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon. McMahon says at Clash of Champions, it will be KO and Zayn vs. Orton and Nakamura. McMahon says if KO and Zayn lose, they will be FIRED. Oh by the way, SHANE MCMAHON is the special guest referee!
