WWE Smackdown Live Results:
1. The Miz defeated Jey Uso. Uso tried to dive onto Shane McMahon on the outside, allowing Miz to stop him and hit the Skull-crushing Finale for the win.
– R-Truth cut a promo about John Cena and announced another open challenge. Lacey Evans showed up, then left, as per usual.
2. Fatal Four-way Match for the United States Championship: Samoa Joe defeated R-Truth (c), Andrade, and Rey Mysterio. Mysterio and Andrade answered the challenge like they did last week, as did Joe. Zelina Vega interfered to take out Truth, and got superkicked by Carmella. Mysterio hit a 619 and a frog splash on Andrade, but Joe broke up the pin with a senton and hit a ura-nage on Andrade to win the match and the championship. This is Joe’s first main roster championship, and his first championship of any kind since 2016.

4. Mandy Rose defeated Naomi in about 45 seconds. After the match, Asuka attacked Rose and Sonya Deville.
5. Kevin Owens defeated Rowan by disqualification when Daniel Bryan attacked him. Bryan and Rowan beat down Owens until a returning Mustafa Ali made the save.
– Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade will happen on the Fastlane Kickoff show.
