WWE SmackDown Results – June 4, 2019
We are in Laredo, Texas and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.
WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods make their way to the ring.
Kofi says if there is one thing that he has learned over the last three months is that life is crazy. Life is full of surprised. Kofi says he thought he saw it all and did it all. Championships, friendships, and pancakes. It hasn’t all been highs. There have been a lot of lows, but Kofi says he fought through them all. Doing that, it gave him the opportunity of a lifetime. He won the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania.
Kofi says as amazing it was to win the WWE Title on the grandest stage of them all in front of his family, what is most important to him is to inspire people to do what they want to do and to believe that anything is possible. We see Kofi Kingston in Ghana.
After 26 years, he was finally able to go back to his home country, Ghana. He talks about the looks in the kid’s eyes. What you saw on the screen pales in comparison to being able to touch that child and tell them they can be whatever they want.
Dolph Ziggler interrupts and he says that Kofi is an inspiration, ask anyone in the arena. If this was Friday, he would be in the ring beating you up. Dolph says he respects the sacrifices and the journey you have made. Dolph says this is about why he is the way he is. Dolph says this is about him.
We have a video package for Dolph Ziggler. that shows his accomplishments but then it says he got nothing in return.
Dolph says he gave everything to you. Dolph says he gave his soul to WWE and you got the Wrestlemania moment. You won the WWE Championship and it should have been him. You are a hero, but one day all of you will realize that Dolph is the hero of this story and it should have been him.
Kofi says no one is saying Dolph has not had a great career. Dolph beat him to win titles before. Kofi says he knows about being passed over. After all of that footage, there was one thing you neglected.
Kofi shows a video package showing Dolph surrendering the US Title and leaving.
Kofi says you say it should have been you, it would have been you and it could have been you. When things didn’t go your way, you quit. You walked out. You turned your back. You took yourself out of the game. That is the difference. No matter how hard things got for him, Kofi says he never quit on himself, his brothers, or the WWE Universe. You keep saying it should have been you, and at Super Showdown it will not be you and as long as he is WWE Champion, Kofi says it will never be you.
Dolph shows a video package of the last few weeks.
