*** Smackdown Live ***

- WWE Smackdown Live Women's Championship Contract Signing: Alexa accuses Becky of being a coward trying to avoid her and dumb Irish luck and a dumb referee are the only reasons she's still the champ. Becky says Alexa reminds her of her 4 year old cousin, blonde, extremely obsessed with glitter and moan when she doesn't get her way. Becky explains to Alexa how her hard work has earned her a Wrestlemania match, being the first lady drafted on Smackdown Live and being the current WWE Smackdown Live Women's Champion, before finally signing the contract. Alexa says Becky talking makes her sick, life isn't like a Disney movie and there is always someone better than you and in Becky's case, it's Alexa. Alexa tells Becky to eat her Lucky Charms because she'll need them to hold onto her title. Alexa insults how Becky talks which makes Becky finally attack Alexa. Alexa lands some shots, but gets dropped with a Becky exploder suplex. Becky drives shoulder thrusts into Alexa's gut and goes for another exploder on Alexa off the second rope. Alexa shoves Becky off the ropes and Becky crashes through the table in the ring.

- Dolph Ziggler and Kalisto vs. The Miz and Baron Corbin: The match closes out with Miz and Ziggler brawling outside. Miz tosses Ziggler into the barricade and Kalisto hits a suicide dive on Corbin. Ziggler super kicks Miz, but Maryse gets involved and cracks Ziggler in the back with a ladder, while the referee was distracted. Miz gets back in the ring and gets laid out with Salida Del Sol by Kalisto. Corbin grabs a steel chair and hits Kalisto in the back, catching a DQ.
Winners: Dolph Ziggler and Kalisto, by DQ.

- Backstage, American Alpha say that they are ready for Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton tonight and will prove why American Alpha is the premier tag team on SmackDown Live. The Wyatt Family should follow their own advice and RUN!

- The Wyatt Family Promo: Randy Orton says he was blind and naive just like American Alpha, but seen the light, proved at WWE Survivor Series that The Wyatt Family is a threat and will prove it again tonight. Orton asks Luke Harper if he's going to take care of Kane tonight. Bray tells Harper to send Kane back to hell.

- Carmella/Nikki Bella Confrontation: Carmella says she wants to apologize to John Cena now because when Carmella finishes with Nikki Bella at WWE TLC, Nikki's Bella Twins on her chest will be popping out of her back and she's rearranging Nikki's face. Nikki hits the ring and spears Carmella to the mat. Nikki ground and pounds Carmella as a WWE referee tries to step in. Carmella finally escapes and runs backstage.

- The Ambrose Asylum With Dean Ambrose: Ambrose brings out his guest James Ellsworth. Ellsworth can't believe that he's a full time WWE Superstar now, Ellsworth thanks God, the fans and tells Ambrose that if he ever needs anything Ellsworth has his back. Ambrose says his car needs washed, or he could do his laundry. Ambrose knows that Ellsworth is the next #1 Contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and is wondering who Ellsworth will be rooting for at WWE TLC. Ellsworth says it would be an honor to fight Ambrose, but Ellsworth has won three straight against AJ Styles.
Styles interrupts and calls Ellsworth nothing but a prop to distract Styles and Ellsworth never would've won three straight if not for Ambrose. Styles promises he'll beat respect out of Ambrose with tables, ladders and chairs and if Ellsworth shows up he'll disfigure his face even more. Ambrose thinks it's funny that Styles is worried about Ellsworth when he needs to be worried about the fact that Ambrose is taking Styles title on Sunday. Styles shoves Ellsworth into Ambrose, tosses Ellsworth into the table, then tosses Ambrose into the steel steps. Styles beats down Ellsworth with a ladder and a steel chair and then hits the Styles Clash on the steel steps. 

- Luke Harper vs. Kane: The match closes out with Harper dodging a Kane flying clothesline and plants a super kick for a near fall. Harper goes to the top rope, but Kane cuts him off and hits a superplex. Kane hits the choke slam on Harper and scores the pinfall.
Winner: Kane, by pinfall.

- "#1 Contenders Match": American Alpha vs. The Wyatt Family: The match closes out with Bray getting a near fall Uranage Slam on Jordan. Jordan plants Bray with a german suplex when suddenly the lights go out. The lights pop back on and Luke Harper is at ringside. Gable counters Sister Abigail and he and Jordan go for Grand Amplitude on Bray. Orton hits the RKO on Gable, but gets speared by Jordan. Bray shoves Jordan into the ring post and then hits Sister Abigail to score the pinfall.
Winners: The Wyatt Family, by pinfall, to become the #1 Contenders.
