Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's time for this week's Smackdown Edition.
- This week's Smackdown took place in Des Moines, Iowa. This week's show was a very special live Tuesday night edition. One could say that The New Day had a pretty bad start to their week so far. The New Day were shut out from winning any WWE Slammy Awards on RAW this week and now must defend the WWE World Tag Team Championship against the #1 Contenders, The Lucha Dragons. Dean Ambrose is coming off of a Steel Cage Match victory over Sheamus on RAW. Now the head of the Ambrose Asylum must defend the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a Triple Threat Match, against #1 Contenders, Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler. Let's get to this weeks special live Smackdown Edition recap.
Winners: The New Day, by pinfall, to retain the WWE World Tag Team Championship.
- Backstage, Dean Ambrose gives thoughts on defending the WWE Intercontinental Championship, tonight. Ambrose will burst Kevin Owens' head like a tomato. When the dust settles, Owens and Dolph Ziggler will fail, that's not a metaphor, that's a fact.
Winners: The Wyatt Family, by pinfall.
- Santino Marella's Christmas Party Segment: Tyler Breeze and Summer Rae call Adam Rose and Damien Sandow uggos. Santino arrives and finds his tree and decorations knocked over. Stardust and The Ascension call the party a bust and has come to The Wasteland. Neville says it's Christmas and you don't mess with a man's decorations. Titus O'Neil agrees and demands Christmas be returned. Stardust says Christmas is cancelled and The Ascension have to be defeated to get it back.
Winners: Alberto Del Rio and Rusev, by pinfall.
Winners: Neville and Titus O’Neil
- Backstage, Dolph Ziggler says winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship means a lot to him because it was the first title he ever won. If he gets it back, it'll mean big things for 2016.
Winner: Charlotte, by submission.
- Backstage, Kevin Owens is still mad about losing the Breakout Star Slammy Award to Neville, calls Dean Ambrose a fake champion, cause Owens is the real champion and reminds us that he's owned Dolph Ziggler, so he's not worried about him. Tonight, Smackdown becomes the Kevin Owens Show.
