WWE Smackdown: Goldberg and The Undertaker meet

WWE Smackdown: Goldberg and The Undertaker meet”

Goldberg will appear on SmackDown for the first time ever ahead of his dream match with The Undertaker at WWE Super ShowDown.

- Kofi Kingston opened Smackdown with a promo about fighting through the ups and downs of his career. As he elaborated on all he got to experience, Dolph Ziggler interrupted. Once again, Ziggler lamented that he's simply not appreciated enough and should be in Kingston's current position. So it looks like he flew back in time.

There are a lot of reasons to justifiably be down on some of WWE's storytelling of late - for example, they make things up like the Wild Card rule in their own universe, which would be fine in and of itself, but then they forget the specifics and repeatedly break their own rules that they could have just written differently - but it still bears mentioning when they do something that is a lot of fun. Ziggler closed the opening segment by revisiting the beatdown he inflicted on Kingston two weeks ago during SmackDown before stating, "On Friday, it will be me". Elsewhere, Kevin Owens ripped the p*ss out of Kofi Kingston, Bayley abused innocent assistants and Charlotte Flair showed why she's the go-to ring general of the women's division.

During the match, Kingston did most of the heavy lifting, taking on both Owens and Zayn while taunting the duo. Immediately following the victory, Ziggler appeared from the corner of the ring to blindside the champion with a superkick before departing up the ramp.

What else happened on SmackDown?

Winner: Elias defeats R-Truth via pinfall to become the new 24/7 champion.

They go underneath the ring and the referee counts the pin before Truth reemerges as champion. Completely off camera, Truth pinned Elias underneath the ring and fled through the crowd with the title. He challenges someone to be a man and come pick a fight with him. Roman Reigns took out The Revival at the top of the ramp but was laid out with a surprise Claymore kick from Drew McIntyre as he headed towards McMahon. Just like Monday night, McMahon stood tall after hitting a spear on Reigns.

Alexa Bliss, Charlotte Flair, and Carmella competed in a number one contender's match on Smackdown. She will challenge Bayley at the next PPV, Stomping Grounds. Lars refers to himself as a freak.

Result: The match never gets underway as Finn Balor hits the ring and he and Andrade brawl. The Hall of Famer talked about wanting a match with The Undertaker for 20 years and he will finally get it on this Friday. The gong hit the arena as we saw The Undertaker standing behind Goldberg.
