WWE SmackDown Results for July 22, 2022

WWE SmackDown Boston, MA

The commentators are Michael Cole and Pat McAfee.

– Tonight is WWE SmackDown, the blue show starts with Stephanie McMahon standing in the ring with a mic. She tells us she’s here tonight because we had the announcement of Vince McMahon’s retirement. She says it’s time to say thank you to Vince McMahon tonight and a “Thank you, Vince” is sung, then the Streets Profits music plays. They come to the ring and say they will be the new Unified Tag Team Champions at Summerslam next week in Nashville, and this time Theory music is playing. The theory goes that nobody cares what the Streets Profits will do at Summerslam, but on the other hand they want to see what he will do. He says he’ll beat Bobby Lashley and get his US title back, and then he’ll beat Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns to become world champion. He doesn’t continue as the Usos’ music booms and they command Theory far more respect than Roman Reigns. The Street Profits then attack the Usos, who take over thanks to Theory, but Madcap Moss then comes to the aid of the first few towns.

– We have a recap of what happened to Shinsuke Nakamura, Gunther and Ludwig Kaiser two weeks ago.

– Just before Ronda Rousey and Liv Morgan interview Kayla Braxton, we have a recap of what happened at Money In The Bank. Ronda Rousey tells Kayla Braxton to leave and she tells Liv Morgan that she managed to win the belt unfairly, but it was a game to concede the briefcase. She says that at Summerslam she expects Liv Morgan to shake her hand when she picks up her belt. Liv Morgan replies that she will do whatever it takes to keep that belt she worked for and that she will beat Ronda Rousey.

– We’re with the commentators when Happy Corbin suddenly attacks Pat McAfee and as he tries to leave Pat McAfee gets up and chases him backstage.

– After the commercial break we have a video showing us what happened between Pat McAfee and Happy Corbin. Pat McAfee returns to the ring and picks up the mic, then makes fun of Happy Corbin. He then says that Happy Corbin can’t attack him from behind at Summerslam and he will put his bald baby carcass to sleep for good.

– We have a recap of what happened between the Viking Raiders and the New Day.

Tag Team Match

Jinder Mahal & Shanky vs. Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar)

At the end of the game, the Vinking Raiders manage to get in the ring before the count of 10 for the win.

Winner: Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar)

– Behind the scenes, Adam Pearce warns Sonya Deville that she will have a fight against Raquel Rodriguez.

– Sheamus, Ridge Holland & Butch step into the ring for a Shillelagh & Shenanigans segment. He tells us he’s here in a Boston town full of fake Irish and he goes to Drew McIntyre who attacks him with a sword but he doesn’t continue because the jock comes in the ring. Drew McIntyre says they have a shot at fighting for a title shot at Clash Of The Castle in Europe, but Sheamus walks away every week. He says we need to restore the prestige of the world title and he wants a fight tonight. Sheamus says if Drew McIntyre wants his match he’ll get it, but not tonight. He says he’s spoken to WWE executives and they’re fine and it just needs formalization. Sheamus asks Adam Pearce to formalize the match, which will be a No DQ Irish Downybrooke Fashion Style match with shillelagh allowed but no swords. Adam Pearce makes the match official and Drew McIntyre cuts off a half shillelagh that Sheamus intended to use.

– Behind the scenes, the Usos are with Paul Heyman and he’s asking them to show what they’re capable of in their match and beat the Streets Profits. He asks to work with Theory in the match that you have to put him down in a spoiler at the end.

Raquel Rodriguez vs. Sonya Deville

At the end of the game, Raquel Rodriguez dodges a kick from Sonya Deville, then continues with her Chingona bomb to claim the win.

Winner: Raquel Rodriguez

– Aliyah comes out followed by Lacey Evans for her match, but Lacey Evans takes the mic. She says she doesn’t appreciate the lack of respect from fans and that’s not a way to treat American heroes. She says she’s not surprised Tom Brady decided to leave town. She says she accomplished more in a day than most people do in a year. She says she wants to get the respect she deserves, then hits Aliyah with a right hand and leaves. The fight never happened.

– Behind the scenes, Kayla Braxton asks Jeff Jarrett why he was chosen to referee the match between the Usos and Streets Profits at Summerslam. Jeff Jarrett starts by saying it’s an honor to referee this great game at Summerslam. He says he was chosen because Adam Pearce and Diction wanted someone who wouldn’t be tempted to cheat and run the game by the rules.

– With the main event approaching, commentators announce next week’s program including Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre to determine Roman Reigns’ Unified Championship challenger during Clash At The Castle. Lacey Evans meets Aliyah and the Viking Raiders meet New Day.
