Smackdown TV report for 05/31/2024

Arena: MVP Arena
City: Albany, NY

Nick Aldis opens the show in the ring and introduces the 2024 Queen of the Ring Nia Jax.

Nia quickly calls out Bayley. As Bayley comes to the ring she is attacked by Piper Niven and Chelsea Green. Chelsea tells Nia she doesn’t have to worry about facing Bayley at SummerSlam because Piper is going to be the champion at that time and Nia says she doesn’t care who the champion is she is going to annihilate her.

AJ Styles is waiting for Nick Aldis, and he asked for some time to address his future tonight.

Tommaso Ciampa VS. Austin Theory

Grayson Waller went over and started yelling at Barrett on commentary and Theory asked him what he was doing. Waller gets on the apron to try to explain when Ciampa runs Theory into Waller and rolls Theory up for the pin.

Winner: Tommaso Ciampa

Aldis is back in his office with Blair Davenport, when Naomi busted in and interrupts and demands her and Bayley get a match with Piper Niven and Chelsea Green and Blair said she was upset with the interruption and Nick said she got it tonight.

LA Knight comes in and he is looking for Logan Paul and Nick tells him to take a seat.

Back from break we saw LA Knight leaving Aldis’ office and Kayla Braxton asked him how his conversation went. He said Paul isn’t here this week. Knight then challenged Logan Paul when Carmelo Hayes walked in. Told Knight he is him and walked away.

Andrade VS. Apollo Crews

Angel came down to ringside and distracted Apollo and Andrade was able to hit the corkscrew suplex and get the win.

Winner: Andrade

The rest of Legado Del Fantasma came out and waited at the top of the ramp and Andrade just walked to the back right through them.

As Solo was getting Tama and Loa ready for tonight, Paul Heyman came in and talked with Solo about having a strategy and when Roman comes back, they need to have Cody Rhodes in check. Solo tells him they have Cody in check, and he doesn’t even know it and Paul says Solo who are we? Just then Kevin Owens comes out and Solo tells Paul to handle that.

Kevin Owens is now in the ring. Kevin said he went to Saudi Arabia to have Randy’s back and he isn’t here tonight due to his knee. But Solo and his people are there, and Paul Heyman comes out and wanted to talk to Kevin and the crowd chanted “we want Roman.” Paul said there is not one person here who wants Roman here more than Paul does. Paul then tells Kevin he had Roman’s respect. He then tells Kevin to please back off the Bloodline.

Kevin asked Paul why he should ever trust anything that ever came out of his mouth because that is what you do. Paul then flips out saying he is a Hall of Fame wise man why won’t anyone listen to him and throws the microphone and hit Kevin with it accidentally.

Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa came out and The Street Profits are out to help Kevin.

The Street Profits VS. Tama Tonga & Tonga Loa

Ford hits the splash on Tama and Tonga comes in and hits Ford with a face drop and got the win.

Winners: Tama Tonga & Tonga Loa

Indi Hartwell confronted Jade Cargill and Bianca Belair and accused them of hurting Candace LeRae.

Kayla Braxton interviewed Michin and Kayla asked if AJ Styles was going to announce his retirement tonight when Nia Jax comes in and interrupts. Michin asked why everyone keeps interrupting her and Nia says I am the queen and don’t step to me, so Michin stepped closer to her, and Nia said you are going to regret that.

Bayley & Naomi VS. Chelsea Green & Piper Niven

As Naomi comes goes for the pin on Chelsea, Piper comes in and saves the match then takes out Naomi and lays Chelsea on top of her and they get the win.

Winners: Chelsea Green & Piper Niven

In the back, LA Knight stops AJ Styles and asked if the rumors are true respect. AJ smiled and walked away. Cody Rhodes then shook AJ’s hand then the O.C. hug AJ and AJ said you guys have been through it all with me and they followed AJ.

AJ Styles comes out to the ring with the O.C. AJ said he understood Nick Aldis saying if he wanted another chance at Cody Rhodes he would have to go to the back of the line and at this point in his career he just cannot do that. He talked about his son graduating and being there for it and maybe it’s time for him to just stay home and be a phenomenal father.

He then called the O.C. over and he told them he loved them, and they are like his brothers. They did the too sweet and hugged. AJ then asked Cody Rhodes to come out.

Cody comes to the ring. AJ tells Cody he had one of his best matches with him in France. And he said this is still the house that AJ Styles built and he called Cody out to hand him the keys. Cody then thanked him, and they hugged. Cody then raised AJ’s arm on all four sides of the ring and on the fourth it was AJ who clotheslined and started stomping Cody.

Styles then throws Cody into the steel ring steps and the steps came apart and after ramming Cody’s head into the ring post, Styles hit the Styles Clash off the half step onto the floor.
