JONATHAN: WHAT A CLASH BETWEEN THE TWO BEST TAG TEAMS ON SMACKDOWN LIVE. CHARLY: THE SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPION HAS HER WORK CUT OUT FOR HER AS SHE FACES CHARLOTTE FLAIR. BAYLEY IS LOOKING TO NOT ONLY RETAIN THE TITLE BUT ALSO SHUT CHARLOTTE UP FOR GOOD. EVERY SINGLE CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE LINE. YOU HAVE ONE JOB AND ONLY A LITTLE BIT OF TIME, AND THAT IS TO GO TO WWENETWORK.COM AND SIGN UP. CLASH OF CHAMPIONS IS FREE FOR NEW SUBSCRIBERS. WE HAVE ONE MORE MATCH TO TALK ABOUT. JONATHAN: LET’S GO DEEPER INTO THE RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP STORY. BECKY LYNCH HAS BEEN THE STORY OVER THE PAST YEAR, THE MAN, IF YOU WILL. SASHA BANKS IS COMING BACK AFTER A SELF-IMPOSED HIATUS.>>EVERYBODY WANTS TO KNOW WHERE SASHA BANKS HAS BEEN. I TOOK MY BALL AND I WENT HOME FOR FOUR MONTHS. ALL I HEAR IS –>>BECKY, BECKY, BECKY! SASHA: SO I CAME BACK TO WORK. BUT I HAD A PLAN. IN LOOK WHO CAME TO SAVE THE DAY , RIGHT ON CUE.>>BECKY LYNCH GOING AFTER BANKS. SASHA: YOU SAW WHAT HAPPENED TO HER.>>SASHA BANKS IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER.>>HERE I AM, CENTER OF ATTENTION LIKE I DESERVE. BECKY: WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU, SASHA? YOU OF ALL PEOPLE HAVE NO REASON TO BE WHINING. YOU WERE THE CENTERPIECE OF NXT. WHEN SASHA LEFT, SHE LEFT WITH NOTHING. MEANWHILE, THE MAN CAME AROUND. THAT HAS GOT TO STING YOU A LITTLE BIT. RIGHT IN THE FACE OF THIS COMPANY. IF YOU WANT TO DO THIS, LET’S DO THIS FACE-TO-FACE, YOU LITTLE BLUE HAIRED FREAK. SASHA: YOU JUST DON’T GET IT. I’VE BEEN RUNNING THIS WOMEN’S DIVISION SINCE DAY ONE. BECKY: IT IS TIME TO TEACH YOU WHY I AM THE MAN AND AT THE TOP OF THIS DIVISION. THIS IS A CAT AND MOUSE GAME. WHEN I DO GET YOU, I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO RUN HOME AND CRY ABOUT. SASHA: AFTER CLASH OF CHAMPIONS, WHEN I TAKE BACK MY WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP, THE MAN IS GOING TO BE THE BOSS’S BITCH. CHARLY: SASHA BANKS DISAPPEARING FOR FOUR MONTHS FOLLOWING WRESTLEMANIA ONLY HAVING A SHOCKING RETURN WITH HER BLUE HAIR. JUMPING THE LINE TO STEP RIGHT UP TO THE MAN, BECKY LYNCH. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ISSUE FOR HER BELIEVING SHE IS FIRST IN LINE? DAVID: ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT SHE IS IN THAT SPOT SASHA BANKS SET AT HOME, SAW BECKY LYNCH BECOME THE MAN. SHE WANTED TO ROB THAT MONEY TRAIN. BOOKER T: I DON’T KNOW WHY SASHA WAS GONE, I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS PERSONAL, BUSINESS, BUT TO SHOW BACK UP AND STILL BE THE BIGGEST NAME IN THE LOCKER ROOM. YOU CAN BE THE MAN BUT I AM STILL THE BOSS. YOU KNOW, YOU ARE INTO BODYBUILDING. IT LOOKED LIKE SASHA PUT ON ABOUT 5 TO 8 POUNDS OF HARD MUSCLE. DAVID: SASHA WAS AT HOME RESTING AND PREPARING. JONATHAN: YOU DON’T THINK SHE LOOKED AT WHAT BECKY HAS DONE THE LAST 12 MONTHS AND SAID, THAT IS GOING TO BE THE BLUEPRINT FOR WHAT I WANT TO DO? DAVID: I DO THINK IT PLAYED INTO IT. TO QUOTE THE NOTORIOUS BIG, THE MORE PROBLEMS — THE MORE MONEY YOU GET, THE MORE PROBLEMS. BOOKER T: SHE SAID, LET ME GO BACK AND RECLAIM MY NATURAL CROWN. JONATHAN: SPEAKING OF LETTING THE TRAINS GO BY, FOR KOFI KINGSTON, IT WAS 11 YEARS UNTIL HE WAS ABLE TO CLIMB THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN. THIS RIVALRY GOES BACK A DECADE WITH RANDY ORTON. 10 YEARS AGO, WOULDN’T WE HAVE SEEN AN ATTACK FROM KOFI? EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST DECADE BUT THESE TWO ARE STILL AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME.>>KOFI KINGSTON IS STUPID. I SPEAK THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH IS, AT SUMMERSLAM, KOFI KINGSTON RAN FROM A FIGHT.>>RANDY ORTON.>>THE REFEREE COUNTING BOTH SUPERSTARS OUT.>>THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAUNT A MAN’S FAMILY.>>KOFI KINGSTON IS STUPID. THE POWER OF POSITIVITY CAN BE CRUSHED BY THREE OF THE GREATEST LETTERS IN SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT. R — A — O.>>RANDY ORTON MADE IT VERY PERSONAL WHEN HE BROUGHT MY FAMILY INTO IT. HE MADE IT PERSONAL WHEN HE TRIED TO TAKE OUT MY BROTHER, XAVIER WOODS. WHEN YOU MESS WITH MY FAMILY, I DO NOT PLAY AROUND.>>RANDY ORTON HAS BROUGHT OUT A SIDE OF KOFI KINGSTON WE HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.>>HIS ENTIRE CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN IS BASED ON A FLUKE.>>THE 11 YEAR FAIRYTALE YOU HAVE BEEN LIVING COMES TO A SCREECHING HALT.>>STUPID>>SMACKDOWN LIVE COMES TO YOU FROM THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS ARENA, MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.>>IT WAS HERE THAT I DECIDED TO STEP UP TO ONE OF THE BIGGEST SUPERSTARS TO PROVE THAT I BELONG HERE. IN A CLASH OF CHAMPIONS, RANDY ORTON IS GOING TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHY.>>YOU HAVE PRETENDED TO BE SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT SINCE DAY ONE. YOU WERE NOT READY BACK THEN. YOU ARE NOT READY NOW.>>10 YEARS AGO, KOFI KINGSTON — HE BELONGS HERE IN TO BE WWE — IN WWE.>>WHOA!>>CLASH OF CHAMPIONS. I REMAIN YOUR WWE CHAMPION!

TELL ME, NEW DAY WALKING OUT WITH ALL THE GOLD.>>THE ONLY REVIVAL THAT WE RESPECT IS HELD UNDER A TENT WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE AND THE GOOD BOOK. CAN A BROTHER GET AN AMEN?>>AMEN. CHARLY: I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE THE TWO OF YOU. SORRY THAT XAVIER WOODS COULDN’T BE HERE. HE HAS BEEN OUT AFTER THAT BRUTAL ATTACK. DO YOU HAVE ANY UPDATE ON HIS CONDITION?>>CHARLY! LISTEN UP. THE REVIVAL FELT THE NEED TO COME ALL THE WAY TO SMACKDOWN LIVE TO GET YOUR ATTENTION OF YOUR BOYS, NEW DAY. YOU NOW HAVE OUR ATTENTION. TONIGHT, AT CLASH OF CHAMPIONS, YOU ARE GOING TO COME TO FULLY UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHY THAT IS NOT A GOOD THING. CHARLY: XAVIER, I AM SO GLAD TO SEE YOU IN GOOD SPIRITS. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE READY TO GO. KOFI, I WANT TO DIRECT THIS NEXT QUESTION TO YOU. YOU HAVE A DEEPLY PERSONAL RIVALRY WITH RANDY ORTON. HOW DO YOU FEEL GOING UP AGAINST HIM TONIGHT?>>I FEEL GOOD, GREAT, AND I FEEL READY. ME VERSUS RANDY ONE-ON-ONE. JUST ME VERSUS RANDY, THAT’S IT YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND ONE THING. HE TRIED TO GET INSIDE OF OUR HEAD AND HE FAILED. I PUT HIM THROUGH A TABLE AGAIN. I FEEL GREAT. TONIGHT, I AM GOING TO REMAIN YOUR WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. AND WE WILL REMAIN YOUR WWE WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! LET’S GO! CHARLY: BEST OF LUCK, GENTLEMEN ARE IT — GENTLEMEN.>>I THINK THEY ARE READY TO GO. CHARLY: I AM GLAD XAVIER WOODS IS BACK. JONATHAN: WE CAN TELL. YOU HAVE GOT THREE MEN THAT HAVE TWO TITLES ON THE LINE TONIGHT. CLEARLY THEY ARE CONFIDENT. ARE THEY OVERCONFIDENT? BOOKER T: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS OVERCONFIDENT IN THIS BUSINESS. ALWAYS WALK WITH A CERTAIN SENSE OF I AM THE BEST. DAVID: THE NEW DAY HAVE BACKED IT UP. YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. THEIR WHOLE THING IS THE POWER OF POSITIVITY. JONATHAN: IT IS ALL ABOUT POSITIVITY. UNLESS YOU ARE ROMAN REIGNS. HE HAS BEEN A TARGET OF SEVERAL ATTACKS THE LAST FEW MONTHS. IT TOOK A LOT OF TIME. FINALLY — ROWAN HAS FOUND HIMSELF TONIGHT IN FRONT OF ROMAN REIGNS. AND WE MIGHT WANT TO KEEP OUR EYES ON DANIEL BRYAN.>>HERE HE IS. ROMAN, WATCH OUT.>>I DON’T KNOW WHO IS ATTACKING ME, WHY THEY ARE ATTACKING ME. I’M GOING TO MAKE SURE I GET SOME ANSWERS.>>AM GOING TO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHO DID IT.>>DANIEL BRYAN AND ERICK ROWAN ACCUSED.>>THIS IS TYPICAL MEDIA SPIN.>>I AM DEMANDING AN APOLOGY FROM ROMAN REIGNS.>>DANIEL BRYAN WANTED TO STAND FACE-TO-FACE WITH THE BIG DOG. HE IS ABOUT TO GET HIS WISH.>>FROM BEHIND.>>YOU THINK SOMEBODY TELLS ME WHAT TO DO?>>OH, MY GOD.>>YOU THINK YOU CAN CONTROL ME? I AM NOBODY’S PUPPET>>I AM PROUD OF CRASHING THAT CAR INTO YOURS. I AM PROUD OF CAUSING THIS LITTLE ACCIDENT BACKSTAGE. BUT I AM MOST PROUD OF THE PAIN YOU’RE GOING TO FEEL AT CLASH OF CHAMPIONS.>>HE HAS COMPLETELY SNAPPED.>>LOOK ME IN THE EYES AND SEE. SEE WHAT I AM CAPABLE OF. I AM PROUD.>>SUPERMAN PUNCH.>>ALL THE TURMOIL ROMAN REIGNS HAS HAD TO HOLD ONTO.>>ON THE MOVE. WATCH OUT, EVERYONE.>>OUT OF CONTROL. ANOTHER SUPERMAN PUNCH.>>GOING TO NEED MORE OF SECURITY TO SEPARATE THESE TWO.>>LOOK ME IN THE EYES AND SEE. SEE WHAT I AM CAPABLE OF. CHARLY: THIS MATCH NOW A NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH, VERY FITTING FOR THE NATURE OF THIS RIVALRY. WE LOOK AT ERICK ROWAN. WE ARE ALL I THINK UP FOR SOME HEALTHY COMPETITION BUT ERICK ROWAN IS MALICIOUS, EVEN GOING AS FAR AS TAKING HIS LEG. BOOKER T: ERICK ROWAN HAS BEEN PLAYING SECOND FIDDLE. HE HAS BEEN ALWAYS IN THE BACKGROUND, ALWAYS THE GUY DOING ALL OF THE WORK. SOMETIMES IT COMES TO A BREAKING POINT. HE HAS SHOWN THAT HE IS A VERY INTELLIGENT MONSTER. I THINK TONIGHT, FACE-TO-FACE, IT IS GOING TO BE GOOD ACTION. CHARLY: YOU ARE DEFENDING ERICK ROWAN’S ACTIONS? BOOKER T: I’M NOT DEFENDING IT BUT SOMETIMES YOU WANT TO BE THE GUY WITH ALL THE SPOTLIGHT THAT EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT. DAVID KNOWS. DAVID: I RESPECT HIM FOR STANDING UP AND TRYING TO STEP OUT OF DANIEL BRYAN’S SHADOW. I THINK HE WENT TOO FAR. HE TRIED TO TAKE ROMAN REIGNS OUT. THIS MAN TRIED TO END HIS CAREER. ROMAN IS COMING FOR THAT BOY’S NECK TONIGHT. BOOKER T: MY THING IS, IF YOU AIN’T CHEATING, YOU AIN’T TRYING. DAVID: IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A NAME FOR YOURSELF, YOU DON’T GO AFTER SOMEONE NOBODY KNOWS. YOU GO AFTER THE BIG DOG. JONATHAN: IT IS TIME TO GET ACTION STARTED. CRUISERWEIGHT TITLE ON THE LINE, TRIPLE THREAT MATCH. TIME TO SEND IT TO RINGSIDE.>>THE UNLIKELIEST OF DUOS HAVE COME TOGETHER.>>WE WIN TITLES, WE DEFEND TITLES.>>I LIKE BEING TAG CHAMPS BUT I’M GOING TO LOVE BEING UNIVERSAL CHAMPION.>>FOR THE FIRST TIME IN WWE HISTORY, TAG TEAM PARTNERS WILL DEFEND THEIR TITLES AND BATTLE FOR THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE SME NIGHT.>>TONIGHT, 7:00 EASTERN.

  1. Still can’t understand why the cruiser weight title isn’t a major title, most of the stuff on 205 live beats the the stuff on raw/smackdown

  2. Someone once told me that AJ Styles was a Christian, 😂🤣 I see his “god” is written all over him with two horns…🙄

  3. I love mandy rose and charlotte flair…i miss you the wyatt family.. new wwe universal champion i believe bray wyatt can win beat seth rollins at wwe hell in a cell

  9. Why is Aj styles on the kickoff he was supposed to be a huge moment at the royal rumble 2016 now this is how you treat him that’s why AEW is so better

  10. This Pay Per View was good, but it was shocking to see a match like AJ STYLES vs Cedric Alexander in the kickoff instead of the main pay per view and they should have kept only 205 live match for kickoff and no other matches

  11. AZ Business Magazine, which is owned by the Arizona-based group AZ Big Media, published an article on April 10, 2019 titled “How forced organ harvesting in China affects the U.S.” The article introduced an upcoming panel discussion on organ harvesting in China that will be held at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix.

  12. It is such a disgrace that AJ Styles is on the Kickoff Show and to make things worse a U.S. championship match. Couldn't WWE just settle for the Cruiserweight title match?

  13. Both matches….especially the US title match should've been on the main card…the Rowan vs Roman match could've been on smackdown

  14. Absolutely RIDICULOUS having AJ MUTHAF#@&IN' STYLES in a kick-off match!!!! WWE how dare you!!!! Also, 43:25 is where you can watch the hot AF promo for Smackdown move to FOX.👍💯
