It’s the last episode of Smackdown Live before No Mercy, and hopefully we’ll get one or two more matches booked for the PPV, which is currently only five matches strong. Then again, they did all right at Backlash, so maybe we shouldn’t question things. At any rate, here are all the results from this week’s episode of Smackdown Live!

– Kane d. Bray Wyatt via Count-Out when Randy Orton distracted Wyatt on the video screen, causing Wyatt to abandon the match.
– Nikki Bella d. Alexa Bliss by DQ when Carmella attacked her. Becky Lynch made the save, and the match was re-started as a tag team match, playa.

The Miz brought out Dolph Ziggler for an airing of “The Dolphumentary”, a video package showing off the worst parts of Dolph’s career, including his short-lived gimmick as Kerwin White’s caddy, The Spirit Squad, and getting knocked out by Hugh Jackman. Dolph cut a fired-up promo in response, talking about the great moments which outweigh the bad ones. Miz brought out former Spirit Squad members Kenny and Mikey, who chanted about Dolph’s career being over.

AJ Styles cut a hype promo for the WWE World Title match at No Mercy. He was interrupted first by Dean Ambrose, then John Cena. The focus soon turned to Ambrose’s dislike of Cena, with Dean claiming he never gets hurt and never takes time off, and he feels like Cena doesn’t respect him. Cena attacked Ambrose, allowing Styles to hit Cena with a Phenomenal Forearm. AJ attempted to retreat, but Dean cut him off and hit Dirty Deeds on the ramp, standing tall as Smackdown Live went off the air.
