WWE held its Saturday Night’s Main Event for the SmackDown roster in Sacramento, California. The event emanated from the Golden 1 Center and featured multiple champions from the blue brand in action.
The show was headlined by Roman Reigns, who competed in his first live event match in over a month. The Tribal Chief recently announced that he’s entering a phase in his career and won’t be competing as frequently.
Roman was last seen in action on SmackDown last month, where he defeated Riddle to retain his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The Head of the Table continued his winning run in Sacramento, defeating former rival Drew McIntyre at the live event.
Bloodline’s other members, The Usos, were not far behind their leader as they took on The New Day and The Brawling Brutes in a Triple Threat tag team match for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. The Samoan brothers reigned supreme to build on their momentum.
Liv Morgan defended her SmackDown Women’s Championship in a Triple Threat match against Ronda Rousey and Natalya. The former Riott Squad member recently won her first title in the promotion after cashing in her Money in the Bank contract on Rousey at the premium live event on July 2.
While Liv was able to retain her title at the event, she will face a much bigger challenge at SummerSlam as she goes one-on-one against The Rowdy One for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Elsewhere on the show, Gunther defeated Ricochet to retain his Intercontinental Championship. The Ring General has been unstoppable since moving to the main roster and is currently undefeated in his singles run on the blue brand.
Happy Corbin also warmed up for his match against Pat McAfee at SummerSlam by defeating Drew Gulak in a singles match. His former partner Madcap Moss, meanwhile, defeated Humberto.
