WWE: Randy Orton makes Smackdown return

WWE Smack Down Live preview 5 9 17

With an hour less time to fill and a leaner roster to work with, the blue brand remains the underdog that overachieves, and the build to May 21st's Backlash event seems determined to wash away the stains Payback left behind. The conflict between Charlotte and Naomi provided the distraction to Becky allowing Natalya to get the pinfall. With Tamina and Carmella in her corner, it looked like the lass-kicker would need to have several eyes in the back of her head that night, an ringside shenanigans became an increasingly likely possibility.

Erick Rowan won with a swinging World's Strongest Slam.

After feeling the force of Shinsuke Nakamura's offense on SmackDown, Dolph Ziggler explains why he will walk out of Backlash victorious over The King of Strong Style.

The confrontation will just make fans even more excited about Nakamura's in-ring debut against Ziggler at WWE Backlash, live on Sky Sports Box Office on May 21. And of course, it will end with Nakamura shoving his knee right through Ziggler's face for the win.

After the match a six-woman tag is set for Backlash. You know what would help with that? Fandango then goes to the top rope and hits the "Last Dance" leg drop to score the victory.

The victory was short-lived however, as The Usos chose to paly some mind games with Breezango.

Since becoming the #1 Contenders to the SmackDown Tag Team Championships two weeks ago, Breezango has been featured in "The Fashion Files" video segments where they parody Law & Order.

Two weeks ago, Naomi was defending the SmackDown Women's Championship against Charlotte when the newly established Welcoming Committee (Natalya, Carmella, Tamina, & James Ellsworth) attacked both of them to ruin the match.

Randy Orton kicked off the show with a huge reaction.

Predictions & Winner: Kevin Owens shaved his beard, adopted the colors of the Good Ol' USA and reclaimed the US Championship from the former best friend who beat him for it.
