Winners and Still WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions: Iyo Sky & Dakota Kai

The Usos and Sami are in the locker room talking about what might happen when the Tribal Chief arrives.

They show what happened to L.A. Knight last week when he saw Uncle Howdy and they show Knight tied up and he had the mask on. Knight is then shown walking backstage.

L.A. Knight is back in the ring and calls out Bray Wyatt. Wyatt comes out with no mask but as Bray. Bray tells Knight he is sick of him and tired of this game they are playing. Bray tells Knight hasn’t touched him and he knows he doesn’t believe him, but he will give him one more chance to send his message and he better make it count. Bray gets in the ring and Knight attacks him. The screen lights up and lights go dim a figure comes from the smoke with a top hat and tips it toward Knight.

It’s Uncle Howdy as Knight looks confused and Bray just sits in the corner and both Bray and Uncle Howdy just begin laughing and Knight leaves the ring looking concerned.

Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman and Solo Sikoa arrive.

Gunther VS. Ricochet For the WWE Intercontinental Championship

Prior to the start of the match, Adam Pearce comes to the ring and throws Kaiser & Vinci out and sends them to the back.

They announced that the mystery person that attacked Liv and Tegan Nox was Xia Li earlier this evening.

Great match between Gunther and Ricochet with Gunther kicking out of the shooting star press and Ricochet kicking out of the powerbomb but Gunther hits Ricochet with a Last Symphony and gets the win.

Winner and Still WWE Intercontinental Champion: Gunther

After the match, Vinci and Kaiser came out and picked up Ricochet and Gunther started yelling at Ricochet until Braun Strowman came out and chases off Imperium and then helps Ricochet up and raises his arm.

In the back, Jimmy Uso comes in and asks Roman what’s up for tonight. Roman then tells the Wiseman to call Pearce.

Adam Pearce comes in and Heyman tells him that Reigns is challenging Kevin Owens and a partner of his choosing to a match December 30th episode of Smackdown.

Legado del Fantasma VS. The Viking Raiders VS. Hit Row

The winners of this match get a Tag Team Title shot next week. All three women got involved as its no disqualification. Back inside the ring, Wilde gets caught by Top Dollar and Ashante hits a dropkick as Dollar side slams him and Hit Row get the win and the title shot.

Winners: Hit Row

In the back, Raquel Rodriguez was being interviewed and said even with pain she will be in the gauntlet match next week because it’s personal and just then Ronda and Shayna attack her and leave her lying on the floor.

Out in the ring next is Roman Reigns and the Bloodline. He starts by telling Sami Zayn he was going to have a good night, but we have a KO problem. Roman tells Sami they are going to team up and take Owens down. Sami says Owens acts like he is his only friend and then backtracks and says was his only friend.

John Cena appears on screen and says Owens asked him if he wanted to be his partner because Cena has not had a match in 2022 and time is running out. Cena says, “Hell yes, I will be your partner and we will take down the Bloodline on the last Smackdown of 2022.”
