WWE SmackDown Results – August 6, 2019
We are in Detroit, Michigan and your announcers are Corey Graves, Tom Phillips, and Byron Saxton.
Charlotte Flair makes her way to the ring and she is dressed to fight, but is going to speak.
Charlotte says every time she stands in this ring, you are witnessing greatness. Most of us dream of greatness and strive and desire it. You don’t have the genetics, the talent, or the discipline to achieve it. You either quit, lie to yourself, or do something else. Just like her opponent at SummerSlam. Trish is a seven time champion, who when the industry changed, decided to do something different. A family and a minivan. At the height of the Women’s Revolution, Trish wanted to come back for one match? That isn’t it. You see her greatness and it eats you alive. Charlotte says Trish was never as good as her. Charlotte says that the athletes of today are better. You want this match in front of your family in your home country. Charlotte says she will shatter your dreams.

Trish says she played that video to remind Charlotte why you are here and why you have been given these opportunities. Trish says she has been dreaming about one more match. It has been eating at her because Charlotte is the embodiment of everything she fought for. Trish says she may be trying to prove it to her kids or the fans, but also to prove it to herself. Trish says there is no greater feeling in the world than to be under these bright lights and she says she wants that and she needs it. You might be the queen, but in the end, you are not Trish Stratus.
Charlotte tells Trish welcome to your nightmare because this Sunday she is going to make you bow down to the queen.

He says it is incredibly difficult to stand out in this company and that was what he was doing in 2009. He was breaking through the glass ceiling and the people were getting behind him. People were on their feet chanting his name. That was the moment he thought he made it. That was not how it worked out.
It wasn’t enough to beat him. Randy wanted to humiliate him. There were rumors that Randy used his influence to hold him back. Kofi says he worked as hard as he could and he would go home and wonder what he wasn’t doing. Why wasn’t he good enough to get to the next level. Kofi says he had to stay positive and keep grinding. Having to wait 11 years to have a WWE title match made him more resiliant and make him appreciate what he has. THe power of positivity is real. That is how he lives his life. Kofi says he wants to inspire people. He wants people to think it is possible. Kofi says he uses his influence to lift people up while Randy uses his influence to hold people down. Kofi says victory would be vinidcation. It would prove that he belongs. We will see who the stupid one is when he holds the title high after SummerSlam.
