WWE Smackdown Match Results – August 2nd, 2016

In case you missed it, here’s all the results from this week’s episode of Smackdown Live!

Live from Nashville, Tennessee

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan cut a promo where they prepared for the possibility of Brock Lesnar invading the show in revenge for Orton’s actions on Monday. They were interrupted by The Miz, and Bryan announced a Triple Threat match between Kalisto, Baron Corbin, and Apollo Crews, with the winner facing Miz at SummerSlam for the Intercontinental Title

Dean Ambrose called out Dolph Ziggler, who claimed that his career has basically been a joke up until now, but it won’t be after he beats Ambrose at SummerSlam. Ziggler was then attacked by Bray Wyatt, who demanded Ziggler put up his #1 Contender status in a match.

– Apollo Crews defeated Baron Corbin and Kalisto in a Triple Threat Match to become #1 Contender to the Intercontinental Title (Crews pinned Kalisto, rollup)

– American Alpha defeated The Vaudevillains (pinfall, Grand Amplitude)

AJ Styles cut a promo on John Cena, resulting in Cena agreeing to a match at SummerSlam.

– Randy Orton defeated Fandango by DQ when Brock Lesnar attacked Orton
