WWE SmackDown results: Asuka beats down Becky Lynch and Charlotte… but can she do it at TLC?


IT was another exciting night for SmackDown LIVE – with the hottest feuds going into TLC this Sunday.

WWE Champion Daniel Bryan v AJ Styles and Becky Lynch v Charlotte Flair v Asuka for the women’s title.

Here are five things we learnt from the blue brand last night.

The New Daniel Bryan really doesn’t like SUVs

WWE champ Daniel Bryan opened the show with another leftie promo, calling the fans parasites for destroying the world with their endless consumption.

His opponent Mustafa Ali – who’s been promoted from 205 Live – interrupted.

But Bryan tried to make friends with him and get out their upcoming match.

When Ali rejected Bryan’s offer to call off the match, Bryan asked Ali what car he drove, to which Ali replied a gas-guzzling SUV.

Bryan – who would presumably prefer we all travel by bicycle or electric cars – rocked Ali with two hard slaps.

Ali surprised Bryan by fighting back and hitting him with a cannonball from the top rope to the outside. But after the bell, Ali’s momentum was short-lived.

He hit a Spanish fly but missed a 054 splash (while fans chanted “SUV”, amusingly) and Bryan locked in the heel hook for the win. Bryan then assaulted him after the match.

It felt like an opportunity to get Ali over (and credit to Bryan acknowledging him as the “heart and soul of 205 Live”) but ultimately Ali was fodder for the New Daniel Bryan’s heel antics.
