WWE Smackdown Live! Match Results – August 16th, 2016

This was the absolute last show before SummerSlam on Sunday, so everyone from the blue brand had one final chance to get their shots in before the show. Just in case you missed it, here’s all the results from this week’s Smackdown Live!

Live from Austin, Texas

Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler appeared on Miz TV for the final hard sell for their match at SummerSlam. Ambrose began taunting Ziggler for “not wanting it enough”, and Ziggler responded with a passionate speech, punctuated by a Superkick.

Afterwards, Apollo Crews came out and powerbombed Miz after being called “Apollo Creed” one too many times

– American Alpha, The Usos, and The Hype Bros defeated The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, and Breezango (Chad Gable pinned Aiden English, Grand Amplitude)

– Eva Marie vs Naomi did not happen as it was announced that Eva Marie was stuck in traffic.

– Heath Slater defeated Randy Orton by DQ when Orton ignored the referee’s instructions for a break. Orton destroyed Slater afterwards.

– Dean Ambrose defeated Erick Rowan (pinfall, Dirty Deeds). After the match, Bray Wyatt tossed down Rowan’s sheep mask and walked away.

– Becky Lynch and Carmella defeated Natalya and Alexa Bliss (Becky submitted Natalya, Disarmer). Eva Marie attempted to make her entrance mid-match, but was cut off by Naomi. The ensuing chase led to the finish.

Baron Corbin once again beat up Kalisto in a backstage area.

Becky Lynch, Carmella and Naomi vs Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and Eva Marie was added to the SummerSlam card.

– John Cena defeated Alberto Del Rio (pinfall, Attitude Adjustment). AJ Styles was on commentary for the match, and hit Cena with a Phenomenal Forearm immediately after the finish. After some taunting, Styles went for a Styles Clash, but Cena hit an AA, then a second one through the announce table.
