Smackdown Results – 10/4/19
Smackdown Live Results – 10/4/19
Los Angeles, California
Commentary Team: Michael Cole & Cory Graves
The show opens with Vincent Kennedy McMahon making his entrance, flanked by Stephanie McMahon.
She welcomes us to history and to Fox, and Vince welcomes us to Friday Night SmackDown.
The new intro video follows.
Becky Lynch makes her entrance and commentary team Michael Cole and Corey Graves welcome us, yeah looks like we’re back to a 2 person booth.
Becky begins, talking about how good it feels to kick off the first SmackDown on Fox and says this show is in her blood, where she smashed through glass ceilings and changed the game. So she wants to repay us by kicking someone’s ass and start things off right.
Enter King Baron Shithead.
He asks if Becky’s listening to herself, saying everyone knows who should be starting the show off, namely him. She tells him he’ll find out if she’s still the man if he takes one more step. He takes one more step…
(If you smell…)
The Rock is here, as previously advertised.
Rocky gets in the ring and shakes Lynch’s hand but brushes right past Corbin to pose for the crowd. He gets on the mic and says many, many moons ago he uttered a phrase to some jabroni that changed the world forever, when he said he was going to lay the smack down, and since then, the word SmackDown has become an institution. He calls Baron a “broke-ass Burger King on crack” and says we’re all here live on Fox waiting for him to do the “Finally…” bit.
So he does the bit, and then Baron cuts him off and says he needs to make a correction– this isn’t Rock’s home anymore and he’s no longer the Great One, and in fact, Corbin is the Most Electrifying King in Sports Entertainment. He tells Rocky to know his role and shut his mouth, and Rock asks Becky permission to take charge. She assents, and Rocky calls Baron a 35-year-old virgin hanging out at ComiCon before pointing out that he needn’t be so literal with the gimmick.
After all, Becky doesn’t carry around a pair of testicles. She says if she did, they’d be bigger than Baron’s, to which he says his testicles are in fact perfectly adequate. Rocky makes sure Baron is saying he’s superior to everyone, and that’s a setup for Lynch to deliver the “it doesn’t matter what you think!” line. He puts Corbin over as a badass, a super tough dude, which leads to an “STD!” chant, which Becky says will stick to Baron for life.
The Rock sees embarrassment and anger in Baron’s eyes, but that’s what happens when you insult the Man, the people, and the Rock.
Becky and the Rock start unloading punches on Corbin, Lynch hits the leg drop (he had that coming since that End of Days at Extreme Rules), Rocky lines him up… PEOPLE’S ELBOW! ROCK BOTTOM!
Trish Stratus & Lita are in the crowd

Bray Wyatt welcomes Seth to the show and says since we’re all being introduced to SmackDown’s new home, he wants to introduce his home and his special friends, like Abby the Witch, Mercy the Buzzard, Huskus the Pig Boy, and Rambling Rabbit, who is both alive and Rollins’ biggest fan! Bray says he didn’t realize Rabbit was such a big fan but it gives him an idea, and he wants to use him to show Seth what’s going to happen at Hell in a Cell.
