Welcome to our WrestlingINC.com SmackDown coverage. Tonight's show features an Intercontinental Championship match between Kevin Owens and Ryback.

- Seth Rollins comes out yelling about Kane not being of sound mind. This brings out Kane, who plays dumb. He says that he'll be ringside tonight while the demon Kane is wrestling with the Dudley Boyz to take on Rollins & New Day. Well, then.

Bella Army vs. Team BAD

Sasha smacks Brie around to start off the match, but Brie Bella does the Daniel Bryan kicks to a good reaction. Naomi drops her ass across Brie's torso, then Tamina double clotheslines Fox and Brie.

Nikki gets the tag and applies a headlock. She can't get Tamina off her feet with shoulder blocks and eats one of her own, followed by Samoan drop. Naomi and Sasha hit baseball slide dropkicks as we go to commercial.

We come back to see the Bella Army dominating Naomi, sliding her out of the ring, face first to the floor. Naomi works out of a Fox headlock, and both women are taken out with a double clothesline. Sasha gets the hot tag and the crowd goes wild as she takes out Nikki with a running knee, then her signature double knees.

Everyone ends up in the ring, then they all get tossed out except for Nikki and Sasha. Sasha hits the Bank Statement and gets the submission win. The crowd went nuts for this.

Winner: Team BAD via submission (Bank Statement)

- New Day runs into Seth Rollins backstage. These four are hilarious together. New Day try to get him to clap. Instead they get him to chant "I'm the man." Corporate Kane shows up smiling.

- Charlotte and Becky Lynch are backstage, and Paige confronts them. Charlotte says she's left them with no choice. Natalya shows up and tells Paige if she ever disrespects her again, she'll be sorry they ever met.

An Owens DDT gets a two count as we go to a commercial break. We come back to see Owens landing a senton for two, then a neckbreaker.

Ryback catches Owens with a belly-to-belly suplex, then pushes him down repeatedly. Ryback then hits a sitout press slam, and no sells some chops from Owens and proceeds to beat down Owens in the corner. Ryback walks right into a superkick from Owens for two, then Owens pleads with the ref.

- The Wyatts come out, and Bray says he proved Monday that Roman Reigns is mortal, and that he is forever. He says "anybody but you, Roman." This brings out Reigns alone. He gets in Wyatt's face and takes his mic away. Wyatt keeps Strowman and Harper from jumping Reigns. Roman just says "Hell in a Cell," and leaves.

- Corporate Kane is indeed at ringside for the main event.

New Day & Seth Rollins (w/ Xavier Woods) vs. The Dudley Boyz & Kane

Demon Kane doesn't come out, so the Dudley Boyz are stuck 3-on-2. D-Von gets jumped, but The Dudleys square off with the heels as we go to our final commercial. We come back to see Rollins and New Day doing the New Day stomp.

Rollins hits Corporate Kane and D-Von with a suicide dive, and Kane is helped off as Rollins yells at him. Rollins follows Corporate Kane up the ramp and yells at him to get in the seat. Corporate Kane just smiles and continues to the back. The Dudleyz clear the ring of everyone after.

Kane appears and attacks Rollins, who runs off. Kofi is hit with a 3D, and that's a wrap.
