WWE SmackDown Recap (12/17): Roman Reigns Beats Up Nine Men, Becky Lynch Wins, Kevin Owens, More

Welcome to our WrestlingINC.com Live SmackDown Viewing Party. Please enter your ongoing feedback of tonight's show in the 'Comments' section below. Tonight's show is a follow-up from Monday's huge Raw

Roman Reigns comes out and recaps his feud, and says 'we did it.' Sheamus interrupts and makes fun of Sheamus, and says Reigns upset powerful people. Sheamus says Reigns is on the sidelines because of people he upset, and that he's in charge. Sheamus says he's asking Reigns to leave. Reigns wants Sheamus to make him. Sheamus brings out nine security guards to help him. Reigns disposes of all of them. This was cool in the end.

- Apparently Train is performing at Tribute to the Troops. I guess WWE is pulling for the other side now.

Ryback vs. Alberto Del Rio

The two trade holds until Del Rio applies a rope-hung armbar. He drops to the outside of the ring and tosses Ryback into the barricade as we go to a commercial. We come back to see Ryback fighting out of a headlock with a back suplex, followed by several shoulder blocks. Ryback sets up for the Meat Hook and clubs ADR. The LON distracts Ryback, allowing ADR to apply the armbar for the win.

Winner: Alberto Del Rio via submission (Armbar)

After the match, Sheamus hits a Brogue Kick, and Rusev the Accolade.

- Tyler Breeze and Summer are backstage, where Goldust pops up. Summer sprays hair spray in his face and he leaves.

Tyler Breeze (w/ Summer Rae) vs. Titus O'Neil

Breeze gets control early, but loses it when Goldust comes out and sits in his VIP section. Titus boots Breeze and hits him with a backbreaker, but comes up empty while charging the corner. Goldust distracts Breeze and Titus wins with Clash of the Titus.

Winner: Titus O'Neil via pinfall (Clash of the Titus)

- Dean Ambrose is backstage, putting over what it means to be IC Champion.

- Creepy Wyatt Family promo.

New Day (w/ Big E) vs. Lucha Dragons

The Dragons isolate Xavier Woods in their corner and work over his arm. The Dragons hit their assisted 450, but Kalisto gets dumped to the outside of the ring before a commercial break. As we come back, we see the New Day Stomp, but Big E can't play the trombone. Xavier is dominating Kalisto with strikes, but the luchador kicks out.

Kalisto scores a body press on Kofi, but Big E runs around the ring and pulls Sin Cara down to prevent the tag. Sin Cara dives over the top onto Big E and Xavier. Kalisto pulls Kofi down off the second rope with a powerbomb and gets the big win!

Winners: Lucha Dragons via pinfall (powerbomb)

- Dolph Ziggler says he's tired of being in the background and every night he tries to outdo himself for the fans. He says he never won that big match, but he doesn't take days off.

Brie Bella vs. Becky Lynch

Team BAD is at ringside, as Brie beats up Becky outside. Charlotte's music hits and Becky fights back with clotheslines because of the distraction. Brie ends up hitting Knee Mode, but Charlotte trips Brie and Becky applies Disarmor for the win. Becky looks indifferent.

Winner: Becky Lynch via submission (Disarmor)

Becky is upset with Charlotte backstage, because Charlotte didn't think Becky could win without her.

- Kevin Owens says he doesn't care about Dolph Ziggler, he cares about the IC title, and calls Dean Ambrose a cockroach. He says like a cockroach, Ambrose can survive a lot, but can't survive him.

Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler

Owens is aggressive right off the bat, putting a beating to Ziggler. Dolph fights back outside the ring, hitting a Zig Zag on the barricade as we go to our final commercial break.

We see Owens in control after the break until he gets posted by Ziggler, who mounts a comeback. Ziggler hits a neckbreaker and the Heart Stopper Elbow, but Kevin Owens flattens Ziggler with a belly-to-belly suplex for two. The Cannonball also gets two. Both men counter each other twice until Ziggler gets a two on Sweet Chin Music!

Ziggler is dumped outside the ring and clutches his neck. Owens follows Ziggler out and slams him into the ringside announce table, which gets him DQ'd.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler via DQ

Ziggler gets thrown into the stairs, but Ambrose makes the save. Owens dips out and leaves, after almost eating Dirty Deeds. Owens superkicks Ziggler, then when Ambrose helps him up, Ziggler superkicks Ambrose!
