With the crew from Raw doing their thing in Miami, SmackDown Live took place up the road in Tampa. Just like Raw, SmackDown Live had their share of hype before this edition. We knew that Samoa Joe would deliver a message to A.J. Styles ahead of their WWE championship match at SummerSlam. The Usos would battle The Bar to see who would face New Day next week for the right to battle for the tag titles. After a brutal attack by Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy made his return. Let’s peep what happened and see the Top 10 Moments from SmackDown Live from Tampa.
10) Charlotte Flair made her return to save Becky Lynch, who was being assaulted by Carmella. Flair hit the ring, kick the chair out of the hand of Carmella and suplexed her out of the ring.
9) Jimmy Uso went to the top rope, but Cesaro pushed him off to the outside and he landed on the padded guard.
8) Paige revealed to Carmella in the back that she would face Charlotte Flair and if Charlotte wins, she would be added to the championship match at SummerSlam.
7) Aiden English came down to the ring, knocked Almas off the apron that made Lana fall off the top rope and Zelina Vega roll her up for the win.
6) Jeff Hardy was about to confront Randy Orton, but Shinsuke Nakamura attacked him from behind. Orton got in the face of Nakamura as he was about to go for the Kinshasa but told him to go ahead and Nakamura nailed Hardy.
5) The Usos were going for the double splash off the top rope, but Cesaro hit Jey with a sick uppercut as he was in the air and Sheamus put his knees up and rolled up Jimmy for the win.
4) Samoa Joe delivered a very personal promo to A.J. Styles about him being a parent.
3) After beating down Hardy, Orton poured water on his face, beat him some more and began washing the paint off his face.
2) The Miz delivered a damn good promo in the back while Daniel Bryan was in the ring. Daniel Bryan replied with an answer with his own great promo also.
1) Charlotte Flair applies the Figure 8 on Carmella to make her tap out and make the championship match a triple threat.
